  • Touring Bentley Continental Flying Star

    The "shooting brake" concept, typically a two-door coupe converted into a square-back hatch profile, is nothing new, but it's almost always interesting. The newest car to join the shooting brake club is the Bentley Continental GT, which made its debut today at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show courtesy of Milanese coachbuilder Carrozeria Touring Superleggera or Touring for short. We've seen other conversions, including the Maserati Cinqueporte, a Quattroporte-based five-door take on the shooting brake concept, from coachbuilders in the past. However, the latest Bentley Continental Flying Star by...

    Has Performance Handling Remained the Same?

     The 2010 Bentley Continental Supersports is an amazing GT car, with its 621 hp W-12 motor, carbon ceramic brakes, and a reduced weight to 4800 pounds. The Supersports is supposed to be the best handling Bentley of all time, but when Edmunds Inside Line did a skidpad test on the car, it generated...

    2010 Bentley Continental Supersports first drive review

    The first impression of the $273,515 Conti Supersports is visceral: You think “tuner,” though not perhaps the way you visualize the neighbor kid’s Accord, slammed and given wider rubber. Though, honestly, there is some of that after all. Here though it’s largely not for...

    Yes, that's David Beckham behind the wheel of a beige Bentley Continental GT Supersports in the photo linked below.

  • 2010 Bentley Continental GT Speed

    Yes, that appears to be will.i.am motoring around in his 2007 Bentley Continental GT Limited Edition, in the photo linked below. There are pros and cons here. 1) Pro: the Continental is a beautiful piece of machinery. 2) Con: the Continental gets terrible gas mileage. 3) Pro: will.i.am is wealthy enough to fill up the tank every 12 miles or so without batting an eye. 4) Con: the guy was spotted en-route to a "star-studded" re-recording of "We Are The World". 5) Pro: funds raised from the song will go to the Haitian relief efforts. 6) Con: um, hello, it's a remake of one of the worst songs...

    Kim Kardashian Returns To The Gas Station In A Bentley GTC

    It seems like just yesterday that we spotted Kim Kardashian at the pumps, gassing up her Range Rover in a pair of leggings and spike-heel boots. (Actually, it was last Wednesday. In case you were wondering.) But Kim is a versatile girl -- and a flexible one, too, if videos are to be believed -- so...

    Bentley Considering Convertible Continental Supersports?

    The most extreme Bentley could get a convertible version, say company insiders, but the question is still up in the air. It will take some good luck and a strong showing of demand for the hard top version, which goes on sale this month. Starting at $273,295, the Continental Supersports is no...

    Paris Hilton Adds A Cadillac Escalade Hybrid To Her Fleet

    Okay, Paris Hilton: you are officially blowing our minds. We used to think of you... well, how to put this diplomatically without hurting your feelings? We used to think of you as a faux-blonde, airheaded heiress whose only interests included partying, making sex tapes, and foisting a never-ending...

  • Jamie Kennedy

    Dear Jamie Kennedy: Thank you for proving what we already knew: that life isn't fair. If life were fair, you probably wouldn't be driving a Bentley Continental GTC around Los Angeles. (Or anywhere, for that matter.) If life were fair, you probably wouldn't be working as a comedian/actor -- even as "the poor man's Rob Schneider". (Which is pretty poor.) And if life were fair, you probably wouldn't be dating Jennifer Love Hewitt. (No clarification needed on that one.) On the other hand, the fact that you have blessedly chosen to wear underwear -- mostly opaque, black underwear at that -- might...

    Sean Stewart And The Death Of A Bentley Continental GTC

    Dear Sean Stewart: We have a problem. That problem is you. We're not talking about your whiny sense of self-entitlement. (Although please, for the benefit of America's eardrums, STFU.)  We're not talking about your "career" as a reality show contestant. (Although we understand that may be as close...

    A Bentley And A Baby Bump For Heidi Klum

    Hey, Heidi Klum! You're looking so...pregnant. How many kids will this be? Don't you already have, like, 12? Are you trying to outdo Angelina Jolie? You know they didn't all come from her superwomb, right? She adopts like crazy. Something to consider if you want to even the playing field. Just to...

    Paris Hilton's Pump Job On A Ford Expedition

    Last week we learned that Paris Hilton is able to pump her own gas. (Even though she looked a little confused by the process. Or maybe she was simply admiring her sweet Bentley Continental GTC.) Now comes shocking photo evidence that the heiress is perfectly capable of pumping gas...for others...

    Wow. Phoebe Price. You totally take the cake. Which, judging by this photo, would appear to be a blueberry cheesecake, slightly stale, made of very artificial ingredients.

  • Romero Britto Bentley Continental GT

    For his exhibition "Come to my World" in Berlin, famous artist Romero Britto chose a Bentley Continental GT as a canvas for his latest work. For those who don’t know, Britto is a Brazilian neo-pop artist that specializes in cheerful and vivid signature motifs and is now based in Miami, Florida. His new ‘Britto-Bentley’ is probably one of the most unusual Bentleys ever seen: a large, happy flower, little stars, squiggles and signs dance on the hood and colorful, comic-like figures adorn the doors. To create it, Britto worked closely with fellow Brazilian and current head of...

    There's only one thing Denzel Washington and Kim Kardashian could have in common, and it's clearly not talent-related. Not even videotape-related, so far as we know.
