Bentley just sent us these photos of the Bentayga’s wire harness—the huge highway through which electrons travel to allow computers, actuators and sensors to communicate. Like the human central nervous system, the thing is enormous. And also, strangely beautiful.
But I’m going to, anyway.
You know those beautiful Pre-War cars you see locked up in museums? Most people think that’s a real shame, and William Medcalf agrees.
The main purpose of today’s Jalopnik East excursion was to check out the Toyota Showcase City at Megaweb in Odaiba. Instead, I stumbled into the middle of a private demonstration and test drive event for Bentley... and they let me in!
The Bentley Continental GT has never been a Bentley. At the moment it’s an Audi A8 coupe. Before that it was a shorty Phaeton. In the future it will be a Porsche 928, so to speak.
This is a 53,000 megapixel photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It’s also a promotional photo for the Bentley Mulsanne.
A crash at Saturday’s Pirelli World Challenge race at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut sent two drivers to the hospital, one of whom suffered a head injury, according to news reports.
Bentley’s 6.75-liter V8, also known as the “6 3/4 Litre“ because old England doesn’t use decimals, is one of the most famous engines in all the world of cars. It’s been in production in some form since 1959, and it has enough torque to pull the entire crust off of the Earth. And now Bentley’s CEO says its days are…
When looking up images for the 1964 Imperial that Don Draper drove in an episode of Mad Men, I stumbled upon a 2006 concept car that has the new Lincoln Continental beat by a wide margin in the Bentley-lookalike category.
Aspirations are a hell of a thing. They’re the notions that make you look upon your greatest achievements and say “you can do better.” When translated into car-speak, one of the best aspirational lumps of metal is a Bentley Continental GT.
I have finally figured out how the Volkswagen Group is going to pay the exorbitant costs of Dieselgate: it’s the Bentley Bentayga. It has 600 horsepower from a W12 engine, a $229,000 starting price, an interior so opulent it makes a Gulfstream jet look like a crack den, options that are cheerfully, unapologetically…
Bentley believes there are people out there who wish to go to London’s Harrods’ department store, only to spend $86 on the scent of the Bentley Bentayga. I’m confused.
Not content to let custom body shops on the wrong side of town to get all the good business, Bentley is making its own limo.
Bentley has completely redesigned its Mulsanne flagship for 2017, and it’s amazing what a wider grill and slightly smaller headlamps did to the car that looked kind of goofy since 2010.
Bentley gave the V8 S Flying Spur a black radiator grill and a rear diffuser as well as a few badges all around to show the neighbors that you have more than the peasant version’s 507 horses, and in fact have 521.
Volkswagen Group owns a lot of automotive brands, two of which happen to be Bentley and Porsche. A few months ago Porsche confirmed it was working on an electric sports car to go head-to-head with Tesla, and now Bentley has confirmed it will borrow Porsche’s plans and make its own electric sports car rival.
What’s more luxurious than stone veneers? According to Bentley, absolutely nothing. Apart from your 2005 Mercedes-Benz with a $60,000 Designo granite package, of course.
A new Bentley is nice, but a true gentleman racer has a few years under its wheels. [Image: Bentley]
