New Bentley 85% Recyclable
For the conspicuous consumer who has everything and can’t stand to just throw it away, Bentley has come out with a new automobile that is 85 percent recyclable.
While Bentley’s Continental is also 95 percent recoverable, it is highly unlikely to ever be scrapped. At least 70 percent of all Bentleys ever made are still around, according to a press release posted at Autobloggreen.
Bentley received a special award from the German government for its advances in making the car recyclable and recoverable.
Bentley is making other sustainable advances. By 2012, all Bentleys will come with flex fuel technology. The automaker is shooting for a 40 percent reduction in fuel consumption for the vehicles’ powertrains.
Bentley has committed to reducing its cars CO2 emissions by 15 percent by 2012.
The W12 Continental Supersports is biofuel compatible, sporting 630 horsepower that take it to 204 miles per hour. It sells for about $425,000, or enough to purchase and completely recycle about 17 copies of the Toyota Prius.
