The former WRC driver Juha Kankkunen, who as a matter of fact is the one that actually holds the old record, achieved in 2007 at the wheel of a Bentley Continental GT Coupe (321,6 km/h). According to the four-time world rally car champion, the ice speed record was reached after running five kilometers in a straight line.
The Bentley Continental Supersports Cabrio who managed to enter the Guinness World Records was equipped with the series engine of the British model, but the fuel used was bioethanol E85 (a mixture of 85% alcohol and 15% gasoline) widely used in Nordic countries and more recently, in the United States.
