Remember your old roommate's 2008 Hyundai Accent? The one in that apple/lime green? Bentley does too.
A vast Bentley Continental GT, covered in concrete. If this isn't modern Russia summed up in one video, I don't know what is.
If you're like many of us, you constantly have throat problems from driving around town shrieking "I'M SO FUCKING RICH!" This vivid yellow Bentley Continental GT V8S absolutely solves that problem, and is a pretty thrilling toddler-toter as well. People can tell you're loaded from miles away, and your kid has a blast.
With its highest horsepower and lowest suspension, the GT Speed is Bentley's most athletic production car. But what happens when you chop off the roof? Does it retain the qualities that make the Continental such a great ultra GT — its momentousness and poise — or is there just too much rarified air blowing into that…
The only thing people mentioned about the Bentley Continental GT in 2012 was the addition of V8 power. This was supposed to help Bentley meet incredibly stringent emissions regulation. It also had another byproduct: It took the lackadaisical Conti and made it into a driver's car.
What is it with Bentleys trying to drive through floods? This is the second time we've seen this in the past few months, and we're starting to think Continental GT drivers are idiots.
Bentley's newest Continental GT Speed Convertible is not only the worlds fastest four-seat convertible, but it's also something you can get in garnet. That great news for all the
pimps Union College Dutchmen out there, but let's hope the heads at Crewe will choose a different color for its international debut at the …
If I were 6 years old, I'd want this radio controlled Bentley Continental GT to play with on Christmas. Those noisy RC Cars never really did it for me, and I was the kid with a BMW 5-series remote control car I found on the bottom shelf at a KB Toys store one year. Hey, I could always hunt down a bargain if I tried.
See this Bentley Conti GT plowing through a 15-mile rally stage in Wales? Yeah, that's James May in the passenger seat playing co-driver.
Bentley's seen eights come and go; the 8-litre coach of 1930, the cloth-seated Eight "training Bentley" of the 1980s, the Le Mans-winning Speed 8 prototype of 2003. Two of those even had V8 engines, like the new Continental GT V8. Can the more-fuel-efficient octomill match the mighty W12? Let's find out.
When someone asks if you're a God, you say "YES!" When Bentley asks if you'd like to go lead the starting lap of the Nürburgring 24 in the CEO's Continental GT Supersports while it's being driven by former DTM champ Eric Van De Poele, you say "Hell YES!"

Bentley's new, more efficient 4.0-liter V8 will arrive at the 2012 Detroit auto show, just in time for the aftereffects of debtopocalypse, when every US citizen becomes a call-center worker for a Chinese bank conglomerate. Awesome timing!
The 2011 Bentley Continental GT now offers a eco- and poorer-person friendly 4.0-liter V8 as an option. The rest of us will order a 567-hp, 516 lb-ft 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12. Now to paint it pink and cover it with rhinestones.
