Have you ever wanted to own your own Bentley Mulsanne and/or a piece of South Carolina Interstate 26? This auction is for you.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
I was hunting down some cheap trucks for a client in Florida when I came across this appropriately-colored Bentley Continental for a fairly reasonable $48,000. But who in their right mind would buy a Bentley from a dealer who mostly peddles $2,000 beaters?
You sleep with your sawed-off shotgun across your lap and your fingers wrapped loosely around the handle of your machete (because remember: blades don’t need reloading). You’re 200 days into the zombie apocalypse and you need a ride. What do you choose?
There was a time when if someone said “Bentley” to me, an image of an old man smoking a cigar behind the wheel a big rolling box would come to mind. This, to me, epitomized Bentley. Until now. This is the all-new Bentley Continental GT and it is, in my opinion, the best-looking modern Bentley to date.
There’s something so dark and mysterious about this photo, which, you know, could make you seem like quite an interesting person as the wallpaper on your computer. (Who are we kidding? You’re all interesting enough on your own. We’re just adding to the intrigue.)
I have driven the Bentley Bentayga. It is good and fast and expensive, covered in acres of leather and crystals. But when I drove it, one very key factor was missing from the experience. I wondered, what the hell am I supposed to do with my falcon?
What is more luxurious than killing an animal and then processing its skin to use on furniture, bags, coats, shoes and car interiors? It’s a complete apex predator power move and it’s what makes them animals and us people.
The Bentley Hunaudières concept of 1999 was something of a proto-Veyron, an almost more exact preview of what the production Bugatti would look like than Bugatti’s own concepts up until that time. But there’s something missing in Bentley’s photos of the car itself.
Bentley’s future is electric, and if it’s based off the EXP12 Speed 6e concept that debuted at Geneva this week, it’s going to be a pretty future.
The venerable 6.75-liter V8 will surely be in production in some Bentley or another until we’re all crusted over and dead, but that’s not the future of Bentley as a whole. The future of Bentley is electric as hell, and it’s probably going to be an EV baby Bentley SUV.
One of the most hated design “features” of the 996-generation Porsche 911 was its soupy-egg-yolk headlamps, borrowed from the original Porsche Boxster. Judging from these spy shots of the 2019 Bentley Continental GT, Bentley saw the 996 and demanded MORE SOUP.
My fellow Bugatti owners, it has come to my attention that there is some egregious confusion afoot: People are actually confusing us for Bentley owners. I know. It’s something that I’ve long suspected, what with the cars both having four wheels, an engine, a name beginning with the letter “B” and Volkswagen ownership.…
It might be a bit silly to criticize an insanely expensive Bentley coupe. After all, those aren’t exactly “rational purchases.” In an effort to keep relevant the what looks like the same car from 2003, Bentley decided to add more power, which is great! And then they ruined it with a stupid rear wing.
As much as I love to point and make jokes at the ridiculousness of a Bentley’s opulence, even I clammed up and enjoyed the car once I got to drive one. And let me tell you something: once you’re all good and wrapped up in that leather interior, nothing else that happens outside of the car matters to you in the…
I know I’m late to the party on this one, but how did I not know this glorious thing existed? Just look at it. It’s like Go Go Gadget HEADLIGHT WASHER!
There is a frankly perfect episode of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia in which the gang finds a brilliant way to end the gas crisis – door-to-door gasoline sales. Trust me, it makes sense. It makes sense to Bentley, too, because that’s exactly what it’s now offering.
Of course you’ve wondered what a 1980s lust-child of a Bentley Turbo R and a Saab 900 would look like – you’re human, aren’t you? The big Brit and big Swede going at it, metal creaking, rubber squeaking – it’s an achingly beautiful thought. Thankfully, we can get a pretty good idea of result of such a mating, and it’s…
Bentley has unveiled the diesel variant of its new Bentayga SUV, and it sure seems like this thing will haul some serious ass. It has two turbos, a supercharger, tons of torque and it’s here to burn all of the oil.
