If you’re into cars then you know damn well that there is a massive difference in the materials used between high and low-end automobiles. Low buck cars for instance will make liberal use of monotone plastics and rubber, whereby manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz and BMW will go with more costly accoutrements like aluminum and leather. However if you’re looking for the best of the best then watch this video and see how Bentley does it.

Inside Bentley

Mention the word marriage to someone and they’ll generally think of two people who come together in a sacred union for the rest of their lives. They not only depend on, but help each other get through life’s ups and downs. The same can be said for the union between an engine and an automobile. This week on /INSIDE BENTLEY J.F. Musial explores just how important this union is, and why the boys at BENTLEY take it so seriously.

Bentley Continental GT Speed and Audi S4: Chris Harris

Posted in Audi, Bentley, Best of, DRIVE, European Rides, General, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | March 23rd, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Bentley VS Audi

The Bentley Continental GT Speed and Audi S4, two siblings separated at birth and both from the same mother (Volkswagen). One went to the best schools, ate the best food and had the hottest girlfriends. The other, although still successful, had to work a little bit harder for it. From a price perspective you’d think the Bentley Continental GT was 10 times the car the Audi S4 is, but after enjoying a stint in both vehicles, Chris Harris seems to think differently.

Bentley Mulsanne at Bonneville

Bentley Mulsanne

World land speed record holder Andy Green is what you would call a speed junkie. You see he’s held the record for over 15 years, having achieved over 763 mph in the Thrust SSC. Nowadays though he’s part of the Bentley Mulsanne Visionaries series where he ran the new Bentley through its paces at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Now granted, this Mulsanne isn’t capable of breaking any land speed records, however that doesn’t mean that its almost 200 mph top speed isn’t damn impressive. Click through and check it out.

Would You Drive A Drop-Top Bentley 205 MPH On Ice?

Posted in Bentley, Bizarre, Land Speed Record by Kurt Ernst | February 15th, 2011 | 2 Responses |

If you’re sane, the answer to that question is either “No” or “Hell, no”. If you’re four time World Rally Champ Juha Kankkunen, your answer would probably be “miksi ei” (Finnish for “why not”). As Autoweek reports, Kankkunen just broke his own record of 199.83 miles per hour, driving a Bentley Continental Supersports convertible to a two-way average speed of 205.48 miles per hour. In the interest of safety, the car was equipped with Pirelli winter tires (although I seriously doubt they were rated beyond 168 MPH), a roll cage and a parachute, but I question how much good any of that would have done if Kankkunen had lost control at speed.

Bentley Sues Axl Rose For $74k: Good Luck With That

Posted in Bentley, Bizarre, Celebrity Cars, Legal, Newsworthy by Kurt Ernst | October 27th, 2010 | 2 Responses |

A 2006 Bentley, not molested by Axl Rose.

Let me get this straight: Bentley was crazy enough to lease a Continental Flying Spur to former rock star Axl Rose, and they’re surprised when it comes back in less than pristine condition? They’re shocked that the former (or current, depending on the day) front man for Guns ‘n Roses refused to pay for the 42,000 additional miles he racked up? They’re concerned about the cracked windshield, bent wheels, broken taillight, bumper damage, dents and missing key? Frankly, I’m surprise (and a bit disappointed) that Rose returned the car at all.

BMW 1-Series M Coupe: Pint Sized Powerhouse.

Posted in Bentley, BMW, Compact Cars, Cool Stuff, Environment, Expensive Cars, General, Luxury Cars, M Series by MrAngry | October 14th, 2010 | 1 Response |

Not long ago I had the opportunity to flog a BMW 135i Coupe around the streets of northern Pennsylvania. The car was an absolute hoot to drive as it was small, nimble and very, very quick. When first released the 1-Series was met with some opposition from BMW purists because from a price perspective it really was not much cheaper, nor was it that much lighter than a standard 3-series. For the past few months though BMW has been teasing us with spy photos of their upcoming 1 Series M Coupe, a car that promises to be everything the standard 1-Series is, but with a much harder edge thanks to BMW’s coveted “M” division.
