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.





On a Rolls: Rolls-Royce 200EX @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/rollsroyce200exconc eptnews.html Rolls-Royce has officially announced it will unveil a near-production-ready concept sedan at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show next month. Called the 200EX — a name that recalls some of the British carmaker's early "experimental" prototypes — the luxuriously equipped four-door previews a new entry-level Rolls-Royce that will go on sale later this year. Known until now by its internal working code RR4, the new Rolls-Royce is expected to be priced to compete against upmarket sedans such as the Bentley Continental Flying Spur and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Holding firm to the strategy taken with its 100EX and 101EX concept cars — both of which have reached the showroom with little change, as the Phantom Drophead and Phantom Drophead Coupe, respectively — the 200EX is said to closely resemble the definitive production version of the RR4. "There will be some very minor difference, but what you see in Geneva is for all intents and purposes what we'll be bringing to Frankfurt later in the year," says Rolls-Royce's newly installed CEO Tom Purves, referring to plans to show its new model at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. As yet, there's no word on what model name the 200EX will receive. However, Rolls-Royce says it plans to resurrect a name from its past lineup. Among those rumored to be under consideration are Shadow, Wraith, Seraph and Spirit. Rolls-Royce designers have adopted a far less formal look for the 200EX than any previous model sporting the illustrious Spirit of Ecstasy. The exterior features many of Rolls' traditional design cues and boasts classical unadorned surfacing, but each element has been reinterpreted to give the new car a cleaner and more modern appearance than the imposing Phantom. Among the more flamboyant styling flourishes is a prominent grille, thin LED headlamps, a stainless steel hood, large chromed door handles, rear-hinged doors at the rear, a wide C-pillar and an angled trunk. The wheels are 20 inches in diameter, wrapped with 255/45 profile front and 285/40 profile rear tires. Describing the appearance, Purves called it a "modern execution of timeless Rolls-Royce elegance, breaking with some areas of tradition but retaining the core values. We expect the more informal design to broaden the appeal of the brand." These first official photographs don't provide any real comparisons in scale, but the 200EX is much smaller overall than the Phantom; its length, width and height are put at 212.5 inches, 82.9 inches and 61.0 inches respectively, making it 3.5 inches longer, 1.3 inches wider and 2.8 inches higher than the Continental Flying Spur. The new concept car's cockpit upholds Roll-Royce's long-held reputation for class-leading opulence, luxury and comfort with a sizable leather-trimmed cabin that offers seating for up to five adults. An upright dashboard boasts distinctive Art Deco overtures similar to those found in the Phantom. It is adorned with a combination of classical wood and chrome, offset with etched glass and piano lacquer trims. The 200EX rides on a modified version of parent company BMW's latest large-car platform as found beneath the new 7 Series, featuring unique wheelbase and track measurements. Rolls-Royce is holding back on revealing further specifications until closer to its production sibling's launch later this year. The only information released so far confirms that the upmarket sedan will be powered by a "new-generation V12 engine." Details remain scarce, but insiders at Rolls-Royce headquarters point toward a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter direct-injection gasoline unit developing close to 500 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. It will drive the rear wheels through a new eight-speed automatic transmission developed in conjunction with German transmission specialist ZF. The production version of the 200EX will be assembled at the Rolls-Royce factory in Goodwood, England — the same site responsible for the Phantom. A recent refurbishment has resulted in the addition of a new assembly line and an expansion in operations to handle an expected increase in volumes from today's 1,000 cars up to around 4,000 by 2012.





2009 Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe @ Geneva Auto Show
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2008/2009rollsroycephant omcoupe.html What price top-shelf automotive indulgence? If the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe is any guide, bank on a cool $400,000. This is the breathtaking price tag being attached to this plush two-door in the run up to its world premiere at the Geneva auto show early next month. To put it in perspective, that's more than double what Mercedes-Benz asks for its top-of-the-line coupe, the $197,500 CL65 AMG. Yikes!

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.
