Take a Bentley Continental GT and make it even better. That’s what Bentley Motorsport did with the Bentley Continental GT3-R. They started off with three hundred Continental GTs. From there, they pushed the power to 572 hp and dropped the weight 200 pounds to 4,839 pounds. Some of that lost weight came from the removal of the rear seats which helps it hit 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. Orders start in late 2014.

Bentley Furniture: Rappers Begin Furious Search For Words That Rhyme With Sofa
Home By on Oct 8, 2013
Bentley has been a symbol of auto extravagance for decades. It almost seems like they’re the official cars for kings, oil tycoons, and rappers. Apparently not content to let IKEA get all the hip hop shout-outs, Bentley is now out with its own furniture line featuring a plush selection of sofas, chairs and tables. Italian furniture brand Club House Italia will do the actual producing, and there will be some car-to-couch connections, including incorporating the quilted diamond patterns found on the leather interiors of Bentley’s rides.
Bentley Flying Spur: Smoother Than A Soaring Tim Duncan
Rides By on Feb 20, 2013
Picture San Antonio Spurs future Hall of Famer big man Tim Duncan soaring majestically in the clouds above you, gently pivoting in the sky to deposit orange orbs in between nylon nets. Now imagine he were to touch down for a landing and transform. What shape would he take? Why a Bentley Flying Spur of course! Don’t focus on how painfully long that setup took for the joke, instead get revved up about the forthcoming redesigned Bentley sedan. And it’s gonna be a massive makeover, with “600 new parts” (still three fewer than Joan Rivers) going in. A new Bosch engine management system will produce 616-horsepower and 580 pound-feet of torque, plus treats like twin rear-seat entertainment systems and a Wi-Fi hot spot will be on hand, so expect to pay a little less than what Timmy takes home in a week.
A Topless Flash: The 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible
Rides By on Jan 9, 2013
When you think Bentley, you think ultra high-end, not necessarily speed–and certainly not convertibles. But the luxury British auto manufacturer is indeed fusing those two things together with the 2013 Continental GT Speed Convertible. Making its international debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, this aggressively styled spitfire boasts a six-liter twin-turbocharged 48-valve W12 engine that commands a top speed of 202 mph. Bentley says that makes it the world’s fastest four-seat convertible. The Speed coupé has the same powertrain, but weighs about 300 pounds less (6,063 lbs to the convertible’s 6,393). That vehicle goes for $217,725, so expect the GT Speed’s sticker to be in the same ballpark.
Bentley Continental GT Speed Coupe

The thing about Bentleys is unless you live in Beverly Hills or hang out at NBA player-laden strip clubs, you rarely see them on the road. So take a good gander at the new Continental GT Speed Coupe right here. The fastest production model ever made by Bentley features a 6.0-liter, twin turbocharged W12 engine capable of producing 616 horsepower and a 0 to 62 mph sprint in just 4.2 seconds. Plus it’s a Bentley, so on the inside it’ll be like sitting on a slice of perfectly buttered toast (sorry, my analogy machine is broken).
