The New York Auto show opened-up to the public this past weekend with over 600 cars and and dozens of American debuts. But among all this new shiny, only the Bently Supersports convertible was able to sway the throngs of crowds away from the usual exotics.

While it may not have the curves of a Ferrari, the aggresive look of a Lamborgini, or the technology appeal of a Spyker, the Supersports has simplicity and elegance.

The Supersports, is the convertible version of Bentley's Continental luxury sport coupe. It has a twin-turbocharged 12-cylinder engine that pushes out 621 hp. With premium fuel, the Supersports is capable of doing azero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. For the uber rich who are sort-of green concious, this Bentley can also run E85 fuel.

The  Bentley Supersports is scheduled to hit showrooms sometime in this summer with a starting sticker price of $280,400.
