Romancing Scotland in a Bentley Mulsanne
The infamous Loch Ness in Scotland's Highlands decidedly drew our attention
to the province's salient landscapes, romantic ruins, historical monster
myths and conspicuous castles such as Aldourie Castle Estate where we
studied, rested, dined and danced. And why not romance the region in
Bentley's greatest achievement yet; a 5,700 pound, hand-carved British
statement that sails 0 to 60 in 5.3 seconds and grandeur than any
achievement ever set forth by Parliament.
Maybach 62 Test Drive (And Ride!) with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of the 2005 Maybach 62 with Chris Moran
Maybach was one of the world's most exquisite nameplates in the 1920s and
'30s. The original company was founded by Karl Maybach — the son of
Wilhelm Maybach, who developed the first Mercedes.
Some people were surprised when Maybachs returned in the form of two
closely related, all-new ultraluxury sedans. Each posh sedan is filled with
nearly every sort of comfort and convenience feature offered in a motorcar.
Ostensibly a product of DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company,
the modern-day Maybach is actually considered a make of its own.
Maybachs come in two sizes: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length
Type 62. Each model designation indicates the car's length in meters: 5.73
for the Type 57 and 6.17 for the Type 62. Special features include
electronic braking and an Airmatic Dual Control air suspension.
A rearview parking-assist camera is available in the 2005 model. Standard
equipment now includes Robbe & Berking beverage flutes and a handcrafted
Dunhill Collection umbrella. Standard Sirius Satellite Radio includes a
Only one or two Maybachs per day are built at a state-of-the-art facility
in Germany. Mercedes-Benz dealers must sign separate agreements to sell
According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.
Maybach says a primary goal was to deliver an "entirely new definition of
Twelve body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes may be
specified. Bi-xenon headlights are standard. The regular-size Type 57 is
225.3 inches long overall, uses a 133.5-inch wheelbase and rides on 19-inch
tires. A standard power-closing feature pulls the door shut from the first
As many as 100 items inside the Maybach are trimmed with exotic woods.
Buyers can mix options with the immense standard-equipment list in numerous
combinations. Available accessories include a luggage set, a sterling
silver champagne goblet, a humidor, a golf bag and a fluffy travel rug.
Buyers may choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of
wood. All four standard seats are heated, and active seat ventilation is
Occupants can luxuriate in reclining rear seats. A television with a
9.5-inch TFT flat screen includes a DVD player. Interior features also
include four-zone climate control with two air-conditioning units, a
refrigerated compartment, a cordless phone with two handsets and a
21-speaker Bose Dolby sound system. Each sedan also has the Tele Aid
emergency communication system and the Comand integrated control system,
which are available for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the 5.5-liter V-12 produces 550 horsepower and 663
pounds-feet of torque. It teams with a five-speed-automatic transmission.
Maybach claims the Type 57 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.2
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact
airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.

Bentley Mulsanne review
We drive the Bentley Mulsanne for a review and take a look in the factory @
2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed 530 HP
The 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed, with its 530 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of
torque, would prefer to move much faster. That torque figure is second only to
that of the Bugatti Veyron (until you start counting
heavy-duty pickups and niche supercar builders like Koenigsegg), yet
neither is the monotony entirely unrepresentative. A sedan like this will
inevitably spend a significant portion of its life slogging through the
sprawl as it connects the heliports to the marinas in the world’s
wealthiest, most urbane cities.
The Mulsanne Speed owes its big output to an engine that’s energetic even
if it is nearing retirement age. Like the enduring Chevrolet small-block,
Bentley’s 6.8-liter V-8 has roots in the 1950s and to this day retains
architectural ties, such as the bore spacing and the pushrod-actuated
valvetrain, to the original engine. Over many decades of development,
though, this eight-cylinder has also sprouted modern features like two turbochargers, a variable-valve-timing cam
phaser, and the ability to run on four cylinders to save fuel. The 2015
Mulsanne Speed introduces new cylinder heads, improvements it shares with
the standard Mulsanne. Tuning differences give the Speed its extra 25 horsepower and 59
lb-ft of torque.
This is the first Mulsanne to offer carbon-fiber trim to complement the sea
of quilted, perforated, and hand-stitched leather that wraps the cabin. Yet
at roughly 6000 pounds, nothing about the Mulsanne Speed is lightweight. In
the Sport setting, the air springs and the adaptive dampers are slightly
stiffer and the hydraulic steering a touch heavier than in the standard
mode, although the Speed retains the isolation to make a pothole feel like
a dimple. In fast corners, the Bentley leans on its tires and suspension
with a solid, stable feel.
Bentley tells us that the distinction between a Mulsanne owner and a
Mulsanne Speed buyer is that the former is more likely to be a passenger
while the latter is apt to drive his own car. That hasn’t stopped the
Brits from lavishing luxuries on the rear-seat passengers. Our $407,235
test car came equipped with a $10,970 champagne cooler and a trio of
crystal Bentley flutes, plus $28,760 worth of entertainment equipment,
including a 20-speaker Naim sound system, video monitors in the backs of
the front-seat headrests, and picnic tables that motor up and out to reveal
an iPad and a Bluetooth keyboard.
Koenigsegg Agera R vs BMW M6 (English subtitles)
Swedish Auto Motor Sport - Koenigsegg Agera R review (Googletranslate)
Koenigsegg Agera R (Swedish hyper-car) and BMW M6 (German Sports-car)
The Koenigsegg Agera R is a mid-engined sports car made by Swedish car
manufacturer Koenigsegg as of 2011.
The Agera R can accelerate from 0--100 km/h (60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and a
theoretical top speed of approximately 420 km/h (260 mph), although this
has not been officially verified.
But engineers at Koenigsegg say that with special tyres the car can
accelerate to 440 km/h (272.8 mph).
On September 2 during test sessions in Ängelholm the Agera R broke six
world land speed records for a production car, including 0--300 km/h
(0--186.4 mph) in 14.53 seconds, surpassing the previous record of 14.6
seconds set by the Bugatti Veyron. The Guinness Book of
Records has confirmed these results, and all data was measured and
collected by a third party with the officially accepted Racelogic VBox
