Super Bentley! Bentley Supersports @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show

MORE GENEVA AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/2010bentleycontinentalsupersports.html Just when you thought you'd heard the last of E85 ethanol, here comes Bentley with its alcohol-burning 2010 Continental Supersports. In this one way, this 621-horsepower matte-white terror is like a Chevy Tahoe. Otherwise, not so much. Now we suppose that if you've got the jingle to buy an example of this fastest and most powerful Bentley model ever, then you could probably afford to have someone deliver the E85 by the tanker truck to your garage. Otherwise, it won't be easy to find the stuff. Fear not, as the car's W12 engine will make the same horsepower running on regular old premium gasoline, too. Either way, Bentley says that while the Supersports will be available worldwide this fall, cars for the North American market won't be FlexFuel capable until the summer of 2010, following regulatory approval. The first several hundred U.S.-market cars will officially be gas only. Why did Bentley bother with all the ethanol stuff if the car can make the same power on gas? It's the first step in Bentley's plan to make its entire range compatible with renewable fuels by 2012. This should reduce the CO2 output of its fleet and deflect at least a little of the criticism that comes when you produce cars that deliver only 13 mpg in the city. Anyway, the car — it's fast. The company estimates it'll do zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds and top out at 204 mph. That's no small feat for a vehicle that weighs 2.5 tons. The Speed model, says Bentley, will get to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and top out at 202 mph. Though the Supersports has gone up in power with its turbocharged 6.0-liter W12, it has gone down in weight, dieting 243 pounds compared to the now totally slow-in-comparison Continental GT Speed. That's thanks to lightweight 20-inch wheels, standard carbon-ceramic brakes (which, despite being utterly massive at 16.5 inches across up front and 14 inches in the rear, save 44 pounds compared to conventional brakes), lightweight carbon-fiber sport seats and a few other things. Despite all of this, the Supersports will weigh in at about 5,000 pounds. The ZF six-speed automatic has been modified to shift 50 percent quicker than the standard box. The all-wheel-drive system now comes with a rear-biased torque split (40 percent front/60 percent rear compared to 50/50 for the Speed model). The suspension has been retuned with new dampers and antiroll bars. The standard Continental body has been modified to accommodate a 2-inch-wider rear track and suck 10 percent more air into the engine. The Supersports comes with four unique paint options — two pearlescent and two matte — and is finished with "smoked steel" trim in place of chrome. Inside, the Supersports two-seater is slathered with carbon fiber and Alcantara synthetic suede trim. Pricing hasn't been set for the Supersports yet, but figure about $250,000 or a little more than 20 percent higher than a Speed model. Bentley reckons it can sell about 250 Supersports at this price in the U.S. in a year.

E-xciting! Mercedes E-Class Coupe @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/2010mercedesbenzecl asscoupe.html Now here's a face that's going to take some getting used to. We haven't seen this many rhomboids on the front of a car since, well, ever. The nose of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is closely related to the rhomboid-rific one on the recently unveiled E-Class sedan. Perhaps that's not a surprise, given that the coupe shares the sedan's new W212 platform and most of its name. This move reflects the intention of Mercedes to tie its coupes and convertibles more obviously to the high-volume sedans on which they are based. The CLK — which this vehicle will replace — is not obviously related to any other Mercedes model in name or style. The new coupe is just about 2 inches longer and wider than the CLK. Thanks to a wheelbase increase of similar measure, there should be more room inside the E-Class coupe than the CLK. Stretched over those dimensions is a body with a whole lot of surface excitement going on, so you cannot accuse Mercedes of going conservative with this one. Thankfully, Mercedes has retained the graceful look of the CLK roof — there's no B-pillar and both front and rear windows go down. Mercedes notes that the coupe has the lowest drag coefficient of any series production car in the world at 0.24 Cd. Wouldn't have guessed that just by looking, eh? But sometimes we prefer a different approach to punching a hole in the air — it's called horsepower. We'll have to wait until the E63 coupe arrives a little later, with an estimated 500 horsepower, to conduct that particular test of power vs. wind resistance. When the E-Class coupe goes on sale in the U.S. in June, it will be offered in two models, the E350 with a 268-hp V6 and the E550 with a 382-hp V8. The new coupes will come with a host of standard and optional new equipment, including suspension with adaptive dampers, a feature meant to register any drowsiness by the driver, and an adaptive high beam for the headlights that uses a camera to scan for oncoming traffic and dips the high beams accordingly.





Freaky Aston: Aston Martin Lagonda @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/astonmartinlagondac onceptnews.html Aston Martin has dusted off its ancient Lagonda brand on a tallish, quaint-looking four-door concept that departs radically from the company's current portfolio of sleek ultra-sports cars. The Lagonda Concept, created by Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman, aims to establish a new benchmark for "performance luxury" cars, while extending the company's global brand reach to new customers. At least that's what the 2009 Geneva Auto Show press material says. But this is one odd duck. Reichman says his four-door, four-seat, four-wheel-drive concept was inspired by classic Lagondas of the '30s, notably W.O. Bentley's prewar V12, which arrived about 10 years before David Brown acquired Lagonda in 1947. Everything about the new Lagonda Concept is big, from its V12 engine to its 22-inch wheels. With the Lagonda Concept, Aston's current CEO, Ulrich Bez, wants to revive the brand, which has lain virtually dormant for the past 20 years. Bez sees the neo-Lagonda as a platform for new materials and such alternative powertrain technologies as hybrids and low-emissions diesels. More importantly, Bez envisions Lagonda as "a unique performance avant-garde luxury product" that can broaden the firm's base of affluent customers in such global markets as Russia, China and the Middle East.





2007 Bentley Continental GT vs. 2007 Mercedes-Benz CL600
For Edmunds' Inside Line article: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=121870 No one shops for the 510-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V12-powered Mercedes-Benz CL600 or 552-hp, twin-turbocharged W12-powered Bentley Continental GT based on price. After all, if you can afford either of these true hardtop coupes you can afford to buy them both — on the same day, using a black American Express card. These are cars for rich people. Well, not just rich, but Gordon Gekko-spec liquid. Rich enough to have their own jets. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. Players.





Bank-Breaker! Aston Martin One-77 @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/astonmartinone77new s.html eased to within an inch of its life on the Web, the Aston Martin One-77 finally made its first official public appearance at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, providing a rolling showcase of supercar technology. Said to be inspired by DTM racing, the One-77 is described immodestly by Aston as the company's "definitive sports car." According to Chief Executive Ulrich Bez, it is "the ultimate expression of Aston Martin." Still months away from production, the One-77 is about to commence durability and performance testing. Aston engineers are particularly keen to see how the new 12-cylinder engine, jointly developed with Cosworth, unwinds. The normally aspirated 7.3-liter V12 is designed to produce a whopping 700-plus horsepower, feeding the rear wheels through a new six-speed "robotized" sequential manual gearbox with paddle shifters. The performance targets are 0-60-mph acceleration in 3.5 seconds or less, and a top speed in excess of 200 mph. Underneath the stunning skin is a rigid carbon fiber tub, developed in cooperation with composite specialist Multimatic. The One-77 features double wishbones and adjustable shocks as well as carbon-ceramic brakes and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires (255/35ZR20 front, 335/30ZR20 rear). One small perk that lucky owners will enjoy as part of the projected seven-figure price tag: As part of the delivery process, Aston engineers will set up the car's suspension to the owner's individual taste.

2014 Bentley Flying Spur vs 2014 Rolls-Royce Ghost! - Head 2 Head Ep. 47
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Kim Reynolds re-enacts the Battle of Britain by pitting the Union Jack's two great luxury names again each other — Bentley versus Rolls-Royce. However, these two require testing that's elevated above the routine, so we've devised as few, ah, unorthodox challenges. With almost 1200-hp, twenty-four cylinders, and four turbochargers between them, the Flying Spur and Ghost can both paint tire streaks on the dragstrip. But can they paint with acrylics on canvas as well? We'll find out. And which car can turn more heads in ritzy Santa Monica? We aimed video cameras at the sidewalks and counted the eyeballs. All that, and the answer to which car has a $40,000 paint job, is just a click away!

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish vs 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed! - Head 2 Head Ep. 38
On this episode of Head 2 Head, two of England's most prestigious brands duke it out as Motor Trend's Carlos Lago pits the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed against Aston Martin's 2014 Vanquish. With names like Vanquish & GT Speed, it's inevitable that some spirited driving awaits. Join Carlos as he he flogs both these fine automobiles through Motor Trend's dynamic testing course before heading out to carve up the canyon roads. Both Aston Martin & Bentley are synonymous with luxury, class & the finer things in life. However, there's nothing gentlemanly about the 12 cylinder motors each car packs under it's bonnet. Even more savage is their more than 500 horse power capabilities. Add carbon ceramic brakes into the mix & price tags near $300,000 & you've got an exotic match up.
