THE MAKING OF A BENTLEY
ANCHOR: IT TAKES ABOUT 40 HOURS TO MAKE A ROLEX WATCH. IT TAKE 11 DAYS TO BUILD A BOEING 737. AND SURPRISINGLY IT TAKES 21 DAYS TO BUILD A BENTLEY. OUR AUTOMOTIVE EXPERT NIK MILES GOES BEHIND THE SCENES OF OF BENTLEY TO LOOK AT WHAT TAKES THE COMPANY SO LONG! NIK ON CAM: WELL THANKS GUYS AND GOOD MORNING, LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL MACHINE . THIS IS A 1924 THREE LITER BENTLEY SPEED HAND-BUILT IN ENGLAND VALUED SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 275,000 DOLLARS AND 300,000 DOLLARS . NOT THAT DIFFERENT TO THE VALUE OF THE MODERN BENTLEY THIS IS 90 YEARS LATER, THE SIZE OF THE ENGINE HAS DOUBLED , BUT IT WILL BE VERY HARD TO TELL WHICH ONE YOU WANT TO TAKE OUT FOR A DRIVE ON A SATURDAY MORNING NIK VO: LET'S BE HONEST WITH OURSELVES, VERY FEW OF US WILL EVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD A BENTLEY. BUT IT'S NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THE CAR AS A VESSEL OF TRANSPORTATION, IT'S ABOUT THE AMAZING WORKMANSHIP THAT GOES INTO EVERY SINGLE BENTLEY. DON'T GET ME WRONG, I LOVE TO GET BEHIND THE WHEEL OF A CAR THAT IS VALUED MORE THAN SOME HOUSES, BUT EVEN MORE THAN THAT. I APPRECIATE THE AMAZING HAND CRAFTSMANSHIP, THE GOES INTO EVERY VEHICLE. BENTLEYS ARE HANDMADE. THE COMPANY HAVE ONLY 4000 EMPLOYEES COMPARED TO SOMEONE LIKE GENERAL MOTORS WHO HAVE OVER 200,000 EMPLOYEES. AND EVERY ONE OF THE BENTLEY CRAFTSPEOPLE ARE EXPERTS. THE LEATHER FOR THE SEATS IS HAND SEWN. THE CRAFTS PEOPLE HAVE NOT 2 OR THREE COLORS TO CHOOSE FROM BUT 24. IT COMES FROM ANIMALS IN TEMPERATE CLIMATES SO THEY HAVE NO OR LITTLE CHANCE FOR MOSQUITOES BLEMISHES ON THE HIDES. IT TAKE 399 HOURS TO BUILD A BENTLEY, 200 OF WHICH IS SPENT ON THE INTERIOR. JUST THE CONTRAST STITCHING OF THE CONTINENTAL TALES 25 MAN HOURS TO COMPLETE. THAT WOOD ON THE INSIDE IN VENEER THAT IS STORED IN A HUMIDOR. 167 EMPLOYEES WORK IN THE BENTLEY WOOD SHOP WITH 14 DIFFERENT WOODS AND IT TAKES THEM 4 YEARS TO LEARN HOW TO WORK ON THE PROCESSES OF PUTTING THE WOOD ON THE INTERIOR OF THE CAR. NIK ON CAM: A BIG CHANGE IN 90 YEARS IS THIS 1924 HAS A TOP SPEED OF 100 MILES AN HOUR WHEREAS THE MODERN BENTLEY DOES ABOUT 200 MILES AN HOUR IF UNREGULATED.

2013 V6 Jaguar XJ: Everything you'd ever want to know about the new AWD system
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Jaguar XJ has grown a set of sharper claws. Nor only is the new luxury sedan available for the first time ever with a supercahrged 3.0L V6 but perhaps more importantly the car can now be purchased will all-wheel-drive. In this exclusive TFLcar video technology demonstration we show everything that you'd ever want to know about how the new Jaguar AWD system works on both the XJ and the 2013 Jaguar XF all-wheel-drive. If you are a fan of Jaguar we think you'll enjoy this video that gets deep under the car's skin.





Jaguar XJ Ice Drifting
To introduce media from around the globe to the XJ's (as well as the XF's) new specialties, Jaguar set up a Winter Wonderland driving school in the ski resort area of Mont Tremblant, Canada. The interesting point is that ice, snow, and hail are the antithesis of where you would intentionally place a Jaguar XJ. Here is where the Range Rover or LR4 belongs more fittingly.

2012 Jaguar XJL Portfolio Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Jaguar XJL Portfolio reviewed. Back in 2011 Jaguar gave this new 2012 XJL an extreme makeover and what was once a frumpy XJ is now a stunning, chic and sexy part Aston Martin and part Jag XF top of the line cat. We dare you to name one car that competes with this Jaguar that so seamlessly blends the traditional British car virtues of old world luxury with new world chic. The new XJ comes in two variants.Our tester is the long wheelbase model with the normally aspirated 385 horsepower Jaguar V8. That means this car has less power than the supercharged version, but what it lacks in HP in makes up for in back seat room and creature comfort. This Jaguar will go from 0-60 miles an hour in a few ticks below 6 seconds. That because it uses super light aluminum for much of its structure instead of steel.

2013 Jaguar XJ AWD debuts in a snow dome in New York
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Jaguar XJ and XJL just got a set of sharper claws in the form of a new all-wheel-drive system. At the New York press debut of the revamped car, Jaguar also got a Hollywood hand showing off the luxury car with the help of two cast members from NBC's 30 Rock sitcom. Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski added some TV star power to help Jaguar unveil their new AWD ride. Jaguar says that the XJ's AWD system sends power primarily to the rear wheels but when the wheels start slipping, the XJ can send up to 50 percent of the engine's power and torque to the front wheels. What's more the system also pre-loads the front wheels under acceleration to help avoid from wheel slip. All-wheel-drive will be available on both the standard and long wheel-based models with the base 2013 car starting at $77,575. Jaguar is also adding a new supercharged 3.0L V-6 to the XJ's powerplant lineup that produce 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. The new engine will also be available of the XF. Perhaps most interesting of all the new V-6 engine will come with a fuel saving start/stop system, as well as a new ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.





2013 Jaguar XJ AWD on the sand... and snow
Jaguar is introducing a new All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system to its 2013 Model Year XF and XJ saloon cars for selected markets*. The AWD system is powered exclusively by Jaguar's new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in 340PS form driving through an eight-speed automatic transmission and featuring Stop/Start technology. Jaguar AWD operates 'intelligently', continuously monitoring grip levels and driver inputs to both pre-empt and react to wheel-slip, enabling maximum traction in all conditions. Feed-forward torque distribution allows the system to actively anticipate wheel slippage and prevent it occurring, therefore providing greater driver confidence and vehicle stability in low-grip scenarios. Torque split can be up to 50:50 front/rear. At speed in normal grip conditions the AWD system delivers drive predominantly to the rear wheels, thus providing the dynamic driving experience all Jaguars are renowned for, while maximising powertrain efficiency. Suspension and steering systems have also been reengineered in order for the AWD XF and XJ to match their rear-wheel drive counterparts' acclaimed driving dynamics.
