Bentley Arnage R--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review Chris Moran

http://www.SupercarNetwork.com Come with me for a ride in a classic English motorcar...a 2006 Bentley Arnage R. Presented by D&M Motorsports, hosted by Chris Moran When you think about the world's foremost purveyors of supersedans, it's probably safe to say that Volkswagen AG isn't the first name that pops into your head. Yeah, there's some formidable stuff just around the corner - the VW Phaeton, for example, or the Audi RS 6. But neither of them is in showrooms yet, and neither of them will contend in the rarefied economic latitudes north of the $200,000 parallel. For all its upscale aspirations, VW hasn't quite moved the needle in the car consciousness of those who populate the Fortune 500. Which is understandable, because it's still hard to get used to the idea of Bentley as a VW AG subsidiary. Nevertheless, way over there in the tiny little Bentley corner of the VW Gruppe, they build sedans that make the Audi and the VW look almost like everyday-transportation appliances. Bentley has become a multinational concept since Volkswagen acquired stewardship of this storied old British brand. Thus "over there" could mean England, or it could mean Germany, depending on your point of view and what aspect of the car you're considering. Assembly, you're talking Merry Olde. Engineering, you'd better sprechen Deutsch. But regardless of the language, the commitment continues to be the creation of unique automobiles for the privileged few. And in this case, for the privileged few who enjoy the all-too-rare combination of princely prestige, country-club comfort, and nose-flattening acceleration. The Arnage T is named for a famous racing corner at Le Mans, the circuit that's the wellspring of Bentley fame, thanks to five victories in the famous 24-hour race, including a string of four straight. Never mind that the last of these victories occurred in 1930; the mystique endures. The T stands for twin-turbocharged - a pair of Garrett T3 blowers replacing the bigger T4 singleton previously employed. The new force-feeding arrangement, plus a nearly total overhaul of the aluminum V-8 engine, conspire to make this big sedan the fastest four-door Bentley has ever made. Thanks to the self-imposed 155-mph top-speed limiters on most high-end Euro sedans, it's also the fastest four-door sedan in the world (168 mph), the first Bentley designed entirely on a computer, and the first Bentley engine built essentially with VW's toolbox. Rated at 450 horsepower and 646 pound-feet of torque, the pushrod Bentley V-8 makes a lot of highly respected DOHC four-valve engines look a little tame. Bentley has been turbocharging its 6.8-liter pushrod V-8 engines since 1982, but this is a thoroughly revamped 6.8, and it packs a thoroughly modern big-league punch. When the twin-turbo V-8 hits max Boost (13.0 psi), a process that is far from instantaneous, the Arnage T makes its best move: straight ahead at full gallop. Although this car's mass ranks up there with that of the heaviest sport-utility vehicles, there's enough thrust to hurl its 5750 pounds from 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds, 0 to 100 in 13.5 seconds, and through the quarter-mile in 14.1 seconds at 102 mph. As noted, it'll do 168 mph before the electronic governor cuts in - fast enough to qualify at Charlotte. There's a strong suggestion of irresistible force here. It's the linebacker you can't outrun, the fighting bull that won't go down, the invincible shape shifter that gets there before you do - and it would be lovely if the rest of the bad boy Bentley's dynamics measured up to its hustle. In fact, even the hustle is tempered to some degree by powertrain computer calibrations that kick the transmission down a gear about the same time that full Boost comes on, producing jerks and lurches that are unseemly in such a posh conveyance. Unseemly also applies to this Bentley's ride quality -- just this side of harsh, despite its computer-controlled dampers -- as well as to the inelegant noises coming from beneath that lordly hood.

Bentley Arnage R--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. An in-depth video test drive and walk around of a beautiful 2006 Bentley Arnage R with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M Motorsports. Back in the roaring '20s, a Bentley's claim to fame was success in motor racing. But amidst financial struggles the company was bought by Rolls-Royce in 1931 and soon the only way to tell a Bentley from a Rolls was by its radiator grille. The 1980s saw the Bentley division get back to its sporting ways with the introduction of the turbo R sedan, and the 1990s saw BMW supplying engines to both prestigious English marques. Early in the 21st century, Bentley and Rolls went their separate ways: BMW took possession of the Rolls-Royce name, while Volkswagen kept the Bentley name and the plant in Crewe, England. Today's Arnage is a carryover from the previous era. It's rear-wheel drive and still uses a turbocharged BMW V8. The new generation of Bentley models, the Continental GT and Continental Flying Spur, make use of VW's turbocharged W12 and all-wheel-drive technology. In spite of its advanced age, the Arnage has presence, and not just because it's longer than a Lincoln Navigator and weighs just as much. Understated rather than glamorous, the Arnage is devoid of any tacky styling elements. Close examination reveals lovely details, such as window frames that have no visible joints at their corners, appearing as a single piece rather than an assemblage containing unsightly seams. With leather and wood trim becoming commonplace in less prestigious nameplates, one might think that the Arnage's cabin has lost its "wow" factor. Rest assured it hasn't. A wide choice of custom colors and interior materials are available for those who wish to tailor the Arnage to their tastes. No matter how the car is ordered, the Arnage offers super-soft and comfortable seats and more interior space than many SUVs. As for the driving aspect, the big Bentley offers performance more befitting a high-powered sport sedan than a near-3-ton luxury cruiser. A twin-turbocharged V8 and well-sorted suspension make the Arnage as much a treat for the driver as it is for passengers. Rationality doesn't play a big part in the purchase of a Bentley Arnage. Instead, it's about exclusivity and the thrill of owning an old-world automobile. Sure, the Arnage is fast, comfortable, elegant and well built by modern-day standards. But keep in mind that Bentley's own Continental Flying Spur is even faster, nearly as elegant and tens of thousands of dollars less expensive. Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options The Bentley Arnage comes as a four-door sedan that is available in three styles: Arnage T, Arnage R and the longer-wheelbase Arnage RL. The Arnage R is the "mainstream" Arnage, offering a combination of luxury and performance that should satisfy anyone short of an oil-rich sultan. The Arnage T is the sportiest of the trio, and is one of the most powerful road cars in Bentley's illustrious history. The Arnage RL is at the opposite end of the spectrum, as it offers unparalleled opulence along with more room for those riding in the backseat. Bentley automobiles offer very high levels of customization. Fabrics and patterns can be handpicked by the customer from an existing selection, or Bentley can completely customize the interior colors to the customer's liking. Powertrains and Performance All Arnages come with a 6.8-liter, twin-turbo V8. In the Arnage T, that power plant is good for 450 horsepower and an astonishing 645 pound-feet of torque. The Arnage R and RL offer slightly less power at 400 hp and a still impressive 615 lb-ft of torque. As expected, the power delivery is seamless and insistent. Bentley claims that the Arnage R can hustle to 60 mph in under 6 seconds. Safety Arnage models come standard with stability control, traction control, side and head airbags for front and rear passengers, front and rear parking sensors and four-wheel ABS. Interior Design and Special Features Along with limousinelike room, the Arnage's cabin boasts classic English fashion, with lots of beautifully finished wood and leather trim. Despite the traditional ambience, just about every modern luxury feature is available, including a DVD entertainment system, personal computer with wireless keyboard, television set and a host of audio systems, including multi-CD changers and an MP3 player.

Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M Motorsports. Introduced for model year 2010 as the second all-new Rolls-Royce under parent company BMW's ownership, the Ghost is a slightly smaller, sleeker and less-costly alternative to the statelier Phantom. Of course "less-costly" is a relative term when referring a car that, starting around $250,000, costs as much as a nice house or condo in many areas of the U.S. As with the Phantom, the Ghost is a combination of contemporary German technology and classic British artisanship. The car's spaceframe body and engine come from Deutschland, while the interior trim and final assembly continues to hail from England. We got to spend several days living with the Rolls-Royce Ghost, and truth be told it made us feel like a media mogul rather than a mere automotive journalist. Unlike the Phantom, which is also available in a "Drophead Coupe" convertible, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is only offered as a "saloon," as four-door cars are called in the U.K. It comes wrapped in broad-shouldered styling that is both formal and aggressive. The automaker's traditional upright chrome grille caps the front end, flanked by narrow Xenon headlamps. A tall beltline runs the length of the car with a bit of a curve to it and meets the gently sloping roofline at a well rounded rear-end treatment. At a massive 212.6 inches long, the Ghost fit in our garage with only a few inches to spare. Wide-opening rear-hinged "suicide" doors make ingress and egress into the Rolls-Royce Ghost's voluminous rear cabin easier; an electronic lock prevents these doors from being opened while the car is moving. As the car's heritage warrants, the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament resides just above the front grille. However, in a high-tech nod to the realities of modern motoring, it automatically retracts into the vehicle when the Ghost is parked for the sake of security. A cap at the center of each wheel is engineered to rotate separately so that the "R-R" logo remains upright at all times. Our tester came in a Claret (i.e maroon) paint treatment with the extra cost ($5,750) silver satin bonnet (hood) treatment that we found a bit garish, though it proved to be an attention getter. Under the Rolls-Royce Ghost's long hood resides a 6.6-liter V12 engine that generates a generous 563 horsepower and is strong enough to propel this nearly 5,500-pound vehicle to 60 mph in a claimed 4.7 seconds. All those horses are channeled to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, and tradition dictates that it's operated via a column-mounted shift lever. In this case it's BMW's electronic gear-select system in which you push the lever up for reverse, down for drive and depress an end button in to put the transmission in park; it works well enough but half the time we accidentally engaged the windshield wiper stalk instead. The powertrain delivers smooth and stunningly quick acceleration on demand, yet remains docile around town so as not to overpower a driver. The Ghost is rated at meek 13-city/20-highway mpg fuel economy, which should be of little consequence to a well-heeled buyer. The Rolls-Royce Ghost rides on a sophisticated double wishbone suspension up front with a multi-link array at the rear and automatic damping height-adjustable shock absorbers at all four corners. It delivers a smooth ride yet remains surprisingly tractable through the curves. While the car's easygoing steering creates a certain disconnected feeling from the road, hairpin turns and sudden curves didn't seem to unnerve the suspension, with only a modest amount of stability control intervention coming to the fore during the most-extreme maneuvers. The car was rock solid and smooth sailing at highway speeds, with the ability to leap fairly athletically from one lane to another when called upon. We felt a few bumps and jolts over pockmarked pavement, due largely we suspect to the standard run-flat tires (which by nature are stiffer than conventional rubber), but by the same token the ride is never floaty or bouncy, which will certainly spare rear-seat riders from ever feeling seasick in this land yacht.

Ferrari Scuderia Novitec Twin-Supercharged--Video Review Chris Moran
http://www.SupercarNetwork.com Come for a ride with Chris Moran in a Ferrari 430 Scuderia Novitec Twin-Supercharged producing 717 horsepower! Presented by D&M Motorsports, hosted by Chris Moran It takes cojones to tuck into a new Ferrari in hopes of ending up with an improved street machine. Pininfarina showcars don't really count, since that's like cheating. And race-prepared GT2-class racing cars don't count either, since we don't see any Le Mans racers parked in front of sushi bars or Circle K. But the 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia by Novitec Rosso is another thing entirely. While a Ferrari 430 Scuderia impresses, this twin-supercharged Novitec Rosso enters the territory of shock and awe. Novitec's Wolfgang Hagedorn does business in the German town of Stetten (an undeniably manure-perfumed burg in the German province of Swabia, not far from Stuttgart). He's a hell of a businessman, but he's still what many non-risk-takers would call a nut case. After years of up-rating Fiats and Alfa Romeos (not hard to do in the 1990s), Hagedorn sucked it up in 2001 and bought three Ferrari 360 Modenas for tinkering purposes. At the 2003 Frankfurt Auto Show he revealed his supercharged Ferrari 360 Modena by Novitec Rosso and orders quickly appeared. Since then, Hagedorn has really made his Ferraris true specialty models, much more than simple tuner cars. And so here is the newest Novitec Rosso, Hagedorn's improved Ferrari 430 Scuderia, the V8-powered berlinetta that beats the lap time set at Ferrari's Fiorano test track by the overly worshiped Ferrari Enzo . How can the 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia by Novitec Rosso possibly improve on a car already so impossibly super? Heavy Breathing A look through the polycarbonate rear glass (so like a sneeze guard at the buffet table) in the Ferrari 430 Scuderia's rear deck reveals all. Here are two compact, belt-driven, Rotrex centrifugal Superchargers fed by two immense carbon-fiber air boxes. Two front-mounted water-cooled Intercoolers (with double the efficiency of the units that Novitec formerly specified in this sort of application) help keep the intake air at the right temperature.This engine conversion is referred to as the Novitec Race Bi-Compressor Engine kit, and the full deal runs $89,999 through Novitec's full-service importer CEC. Getting more out of the 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia evidently doesn't take much, as each Rotrex screwgie hits its max Boost at 7.0 psi. It's all available in the twitch of an ankle from low revs all the way to 8,350 rpm, where the horsepower count surges from 503 hp to 708 hp. Meanwhile, the torque has been wrenched from a measly 347 pound-feet up to 533 lb-ft at 6,250 rpm. Novitec has managed to keep all the heat-inducing friction and combustion in control by applying competition-level cooling upgrades. The Ferrari-engineered 136E V8 engine (which also sits in the Alfa Romeo 8C and assorted Maseratis) is otherwise stock. So is the Scuderia's six-speed automated manual F1-Superfast2 gearbox; and its shift times remain wildly quick going up or down (70 milliseconds in the Race, CT-Off and CST-Off settings of the manettino mounted on the steering wheel). Naturally, the ECU has been fiddled with by a local German fiddler to Boost the engine's self-confidence, while the port fuel injectors are now higher-flow units, a fact that further ruins the Scuderia's already sufficiently ruinous mpg rating. But if you whine about this mpg thing at a barbecue for Novitec Rosso owners, you're probably a waiter from the catering company. Nimble Jack While the technicians at Novitec's facility in Stetten have fiddled not one bit with the wheel alignment, new stiffer springs all around slightly alter the over-the-road feel of the five suspension settings afforded by the manettino, and the overall ride height is 1.2 inches lower than that specified by Maranello. The Ferrari MagneRide dampers are too complicated to modify, so the settings are the same as before.
