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.

Essential: Infiniti Essence @ 2009 Geneva Auto Show
MORE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/geneva/2009/genevainfinitiessen cenews.html Infiniti Essence @ Pebble Beach: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8tQgM0Aweg More Articles: http://www.insideline.com Car Prices & Info: http://www.edmunds.com Twitter Feed: http://twitter.com Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/ins... Hi-Res Videos: http://www.hulu.com/edmunds-in side-line Yes, Geneva is a Swiss show, traditionally well attended by the Italian design houses and German tuners. But at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, a Japanese designer is the talk of the Palexpo — thanks in no small part to his new Infiniti Essence. Nissan's upscale brand would have us believe this sensational coupe concept is "the essence of Infiniti." In fact, it is the essence of Shiro Nakamura, Nissan's senior vice president of design, not to mention a glimpse into the future design direction of Infiniti. Nakamura's team has crafted a sleek two-seater with a panoramic glass roof that is all but devoid of ornamentation. Japanese cultural cues abound inside and out. The designers drew inspiration from, among other things, Japanese calligraphy, traditional lacquerware, even the kanzashi, a hairpin used by women when wearing a kimono. The aim, according to Nakamura, was "to merge all existing Infiniti design cues with fresh design language." The sinuous, sculpted shape is wrapped around a traditional front-engine/rear-drive sports car layout. But the Essence is hardly traditional in its powertrain, safety technology and even its post-modern minimalist cabin. Nakamura's team created a stunning asymmetrical cockpit with staggered seats, separated by a curving console that sweeps into the dash. The driver's "cocoon" is finished in black, while the passenger is swathed in red. The cabin is trimmed in leather, Alcantara and hand-painted wood and features chronometer-type dials, an aluminum gearshift knob, a red engine-start button and a flat-bottomed steering wheel flanked by paddle shifters. Nissan chose a powerful gas-electric tandem, configured as a parallel hybrid so the two power sources can work independently or together. The 3.7-liter direct-injection V6 is fitted with twin turbochargers and makes 434 horsepower, while the electric motor adds another 158 hp, providing total output of nearly 600 hp. Energy is stored in a lithium-ion battery pack. Advanced safety technologies include distance control assist, lane departure prevention, side collision prevention and back-up collision prevention. The pièce de résistance is a collaboration with Louis Vuitton — a bespoke three-piece luggage set that's fitted to the trunk of the Essence. Naturally, each piece carries the initials of the owner. Guess what "SN" stands for.





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.





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.





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!
