    Bentley has teamed up with America’s Monster, a firm specializing in high-performance audio, to create this one-off Continental GT V8 S known as the Monster by Mulliner.

    2016 Bentley Continental GT Speed first drive review

    Before the Internet became the refuge of the world's trolls, Norway was their spiritual home. We contend they're mythical creatures, but lots of Norwegians to this day believe trolls really exist. Spooky, Blair Witch-style trolls, if you take YouTube at face value. And why wouldn't you? Rich in...

    Bentley Rolls Out Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series Special Edition

    Bentley has revealed one of its most exclusive collections in its almost century-long history, a seven-car run called the Breitling Jet Team Series and based on the latest Continental GT Speed.

    2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R first drive review

    I was on hand—briefly—at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed when the Bentley Continental GT3-R made its debut in the stomping grounds of perennial rival Rolls-Royce. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to drive it then—or during the first media previews last fall. Only 99 souls in...

    Bentley Sets New ‘Flying Mile’ Speed Record With Actor Idris Elba

    The ‘Flying Mile’ is a historical high-water mark, a thing of legend. In 1927, Sir Malcolm Campbell drove a modified Bentley—the Napier-Campbell Blue Bird—to a U.K. land speed record of 174.8 mph. That’s faster than most of today’s sports cars, just 41 years...

    Bentley’s most dynamic road car in the company’s history, the Continental GT3-R, happens to weigh more than 4,800 pounds. British journo Chris Harris recently took one to the track to see just how dynamic the big bruiser actually is—and fortunately he was kind enough to film the...

  • 2016 Bentley Continental GT

    Last year, the Continental GT Speed made headlines for becoming the fastest production Bentley ever. And next month at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the luxury marque will debut a model-spanning host of upgrades which should prove impressive at any speed. But obviously, there's more power. CHECK OUT: 2016 Lotus Evora 400 Is British Brand’s Fastest Road Car To Date The GT's already formidable 6.0-liter W-12 gets bumped from 567 to 582 horsepower and from 516 to 531 pound-feet, and while cruising, the engine will be capable of running on six cylinders. Not that variable displacement will...

    Bentley’s most dynamic road car in the company’s history, the Continental GT3-R, is heading to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend, after which it will be racing into showrooms with a staggering $337,000 price tag. That might seem steep at first, especially...

    Bentley Continental GT3-R Races Into 2014 Goodwood Festival Of Speed

    A hardcore version of Bentley’s Continental GT has been hinted at since 2011 but the possibility of the luxury cruiser being turned into a track weapon never really seemed plausible until a racing version of the car was revealed last year. Now, the Continental GT race car has spawned a...

    Bentley Continental GT3 Road Car Set For 2014 Goodwood Festival Of Speed: Report

    Bentley is working on a hardcore version of its Continental GT inspired by the car's GT3 racing variant, and we could see it unveiled as early as this month.

  • bentley continental gt webster race engineering

    Here in the States, when we hear the term Pro Street we have visions of nearly cartoonish Camaro and Mustang examples lining up for a trip down the quarter mile. We say cartoonish, and we mean that in the best sense possible. The horsepower numbers are off the charts and the skin of the cars has been stretched to cover the massive bits of rubber required to propel the cars down the drag strip. In England, there's a group that is looking at the drag world a bit differently. ALSO SEE: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Debuts With More Than 600 HP: Video The team is called Webster Race...

    2014 Bentley Continental GT V8 S: First Drive

    How quick is the new Bentley Continental GT V8 S? How powerful? If this were the Bentley of the past, when it was intertwined with Rolls-Royce, the deflective reply to such questions would be “Sufficient.” And it would be left up to us to agree. A quarter-century ago, when the...

    Yes, a Bentley can feel sharp, edgy, and responsive--and quite a bit leaner than you might expect of anything from this storied (and once stodgier) luxury marque. The Continental GT V8 has already shown us that. And now to maximize that potential for driving enthusiasts, it’s created the...

  • 2010 Bentley Continental Supersports

    When the original 621-horsepower Bentley Continental Supersports was launched in 2009, we found it to be a refined, luxurious, and utterly bonkers take on Bentley's classic ultra-luxury theme. Understandably, we were a little sad to hear there would be no Continental Supersports as part of the updated Continental range launched just one year later. More recent news of a leaner, more aggressive Continental GT along the lines of a road-going racer rekindled our interest in the idea of a hyper-performance Conti GT, though we were still somewhat sad about Bentley not offering a direct replacement...
