  • Bentley engine

    Currently, Bentley does not have a vehicle in its entire lineup with an engine capacity smaller than 6.0-liters. A few years back this wouldn’t seem at all out of the ordinary for the ultra-luxury marque from Crewe, but at a time where environmental consciousness is sweeping the minds of governments and consumers alike, even firms like Bentley need to start thinking green. Bentley has on multiple occasions stressed its commitment to deliver a powertrain lineup that achieves a 40 percent improvement in CO2 emissions, and in keeping with this commitment will launch a new downsized--for a...

    2011 Bentley Continental GT: First Look

    Bentley has released details and photos of the new 2011 Continental GT. An evolution rather than a revolution, at first glance, one might be hard pressed to see the differences between the new model and the outgoing version of the car. The new front-end treatment isn’t radically different...

  • 2011 Bentley Continental GT

    As the rest of the world slowly amps up for the 2010 Paris auto show, the hyperluxurious designers in Crewe have been hard at work preparing the launch of the 2011 Bentley Continental GT, unveiled today. The Web reveal offers us the full details on the car's specs as well as high-res photos, but unfortunately the smell of fine leather and English walnut doesn't make the digital translation. A more powerful and flex-fuel (E85) capable 6.0-liter, 567-horsepower/516 pound-foot W-12 engine will be the standard powerplant at launch, while a more efficient V-8 engine will be up for order from late...

    Spy Shots: 2011 Bentley Continental GT, Reveal Coming September 7

    The Bentley Continental GT has been around since 2003 and since that time there have been very little changes made to the luxurious grand tourer lineup. That won’t be true for much longer as these latest spy shots indicate. Bentley is working on a facelift for its 2011 model year Continental...

    Bentley Launches Microsite For 2011 Continental GT

    We've already seen the 2011 Bentley Continental GT all but unmasked in our spy shots, but the details of what's under the (relatively) sleek new skin still remain unknown. All the wondering will be over by mid-September, though, as Bentley today launched a new microsite teasing the car's unveiling...

  • 2011 Bentley Continental GTC And GTC Speed 80-11 Editions

    The Bentley Continental range is starting to get a little long in the tooth, having been on sale in its current form since 2003. Despite this, Bentley is milking the most out of its Continental range for the 2011 model year, releasing two more special editions based on the Continental GTC and GTC Speed specifically for the North American market. The 2011 Bentley Continental GTC And GTC Speed 80-11 Editions made their debut earlier today at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The 80-11 designation underlines just how limited these luxury British convertibles will be, with Bentley...

  • 2009 Bentley Continental GT

    The Bugatti Veyron is a $1.7 million wonder. It features a complex quad-turbocharged W-16 1,001 hp that requires 4 radiators and an exposed engine just to cool the thing down. It will reach over 250 miles an hour, and at that spend in twelve minutes the 26.4 gallon fuel tank will become empty. If the tank could last two more minutes, the tires would wear down to nothing, requiring the owner to spend $70,000 to have the worn tires and wheels back to france to have new tires fitted.  One thing is for sure, the Veyron is the antithesis of a “green” car. But AutoExpress is reporting that...
