Bugatti Veyron CHASE! R8 V10 Spyder left behind...
My Audi R8 V10 Spyder was no match for the Bugatti Veyron but made for a hugely enjoyable drive! At last week's The Supercar Kids' event, Jay Broom (aka JayKayBi) offered the chance to spend the day with something rather special, a Bugatti Veyron! And not just any Veyron, the 16.4 Coupe belonging to Lord Pembroke of Wilton House, home of the annual Wilton Classic and Supercars event, one of my personal favourite events in the annual car calendar taking place each August. Wilton is also home to the soon to commence 'Wilton Wakeup' events, kicking off in spring 2013 they will be Sunday morning gatherings for car nuts in the West of England, more information is to follow on that front! The Veyron itself is wrapped in a Gulf-inspired livery, created by radio-controlled-car painter Ian Cook of PopBangColour and placed on the car to promote the Wilton Classic and Supercars event. A Quicksilver Sports Exhaust system is also installed in the Bugatti, giving it extra noise; an area the car is often criticised. The sound it made on first start from cold certainly took me by surprise!

Audi: The quattro principle
quattro four-wheel drive enjoys a lengthy tradition. The principle involves distributing the engine's power permanently and optimally between all four wheels.

Bentley Continental Flying Spur - racing world's fastest limousine / schnellste Limousine der Welt
It is said that this is the world's fastest limousine. Der Continental Flying Spur (oder auch Flying Spur) ist eine repräsentative Limousine, die von der Volkswagen AG-Tochter Bentley angeboten wird. Der Name „Flying Spur" leitet sich vom Familienwappen des Kutschen- und Karosserie-Bauers Mulliner ab, der schon die ersten Rolls-Royce- und Bentley-Modelle karossierte und 1959 aufgekauft wurde. Das Wappen zeigt unter anderem einen geflügelten Sporn. Der Continental Flying Spur ist die zweite Bentley-Baureihe, die unter Volkswagen-Regie entwickelt und im Jahr 2006 teilweise in der Gläsernen Manufaktur in Dresden gebaut wurde. So ist die gesamte Continental-Serie (Flying Spur, GT (Coupé) und GTC (Cabrio)) lose mit dem VW Phaeton und dem Audi A8 verwandt, hat aber eine noch höherwertige Innenausstattung und exklusive einen 6.0 Liter Bi-turbo W12. Alle Modelle verfügen serienmäßig über einen permanenten Allradantrieb sowie über die aktive Luftfederung. (Wikipedia) The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is a four-door variant of the Bentley Continental GT coupé. The Bentley Continental Flying Spur was introduced in 2005. The Continental Flying Spur is equipped with a 5,998 cubic centimetres (366.0 cu in) (6.0 litre) twin-turbocharged W12 engine. It produces a DIN-rated motive power output of 560 metric horsepower (412 kW; 552 bhp) at 6,100 rpm, and torque of 650 newton metres (479 ft·lbf) at 1,600-6,100 rpm. Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive is standard. It will complete the standard sprint of 0--100 kilometres per hour (0--62.1 mph) in 5.2 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 312 kilometres per hour (194 mph).[1] Some of the Bentley's technical and powertrain components are related to those on the Volkswagen Phaeton, Audi A8 and S8. The car was designed by the same team who produced the Continental GT and Continental GTC. The Continental Flying Spur is exclusively hand built at Bentley's only manufacturing plant in Crewe, England. Previously, due to a lack of capacity at the Crewe factory upon the car's introduction, some Flying Spurs destined for markets other than the USA and UK were built at Volkswagen's Transparent Factory in Dresden, Germany. This arrangement ended in 2006, when all assembly work reverted to Crewe. (Wikipedia)
