    File this one under the “You can’t make this stuff up” category. Just a week after a 17-year old was shot dead for egging a Mercedes-Benz in Atlanta, a Chicago car dealer was found in his Bentley with a loaded gun and his pants missing. Eugene Bernshtam, 43, was charged with unlawful use of a weapon and cited with indecent exposure and for not having a city firearm permit last week. He has since been ordered held on a $50,000 bond and a preliminary hearing has been set for later this week. When police found him, Bernshtam was apparently trying to cover himself with a sweater...

    Bentley And Audi To Share New 4.0-Liter V-8

    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...

    2011 Bentley Continental GT: First Look

    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.

    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, complete with a countdown clock. The new Bentley Continental GT will launch in 19 days, 16 hours and change, just in advance of the Paris Auto Show.
