    Spy Shots: Bentley testing hardcore high-performance Continental GT V8 on Nurburgring?
    1397937600

    The Bentley Continental GT V8 is a darn good car. The GT V8 S, even more so. It's only logical, then that an even hotter Conti GT would be commensurately better. At least, we're hoping that's what the minds at Bentley's Crewe, UK headquarters were thinking when they dispatched this bewinged GT V8 to the Nürburgring. This Conti GT stands out not only ...

    Report: Bentley designing SUV to reach 320 km/h?
    1396195200

    The 200 MPH Club (320 km/h) was once populated entirely by exotic sports cars. These days it has expanded to include convertibles, sedans and even station wagons. But an SUV? Unthinkable, what with their aerodynamic profile approaching that of a barn door. Bentley, however, is out to change that with its forthcoming new sport ute. Not only is the British ...

    Report: Porsche to develop new line of engines for next Panamera
    1396044000

    When the second generation of the four-door Porsche Panamera launches, it will likely be riding a new platform, complete with an all-new family of V6 and V8 engines, according to a report coming out of the UK. Autocar reports that the so-called MSB platform will likely underpin the Panamera, and it could be shared with Bentley, provided the ...

    Report: VW makes $25K on every Porsche sold, more than Bentley or Lamborghini
    1395094500

    It's a good time to be in the luxury car business. In Volkswagen Group's financial report for the 2013 fiscal year, it is revealed that that Porsche enjoyed an operating margin of 18 per cent. That means the Stuttgart brand made on average about US$23,200 (CAD $25,634) per car sold, according to BusinessWeek. Bentley wasn't far behind, and Audi (which was ...

    Geneva: 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed arrives as the fastest Flying B to date
    1394204400

    We know what you must be thinking: another Bentley Continental. And we can hardly argue with you, because that's exactly what this is. But what you're actually looking at is the fastest production Bentley ever. It's the new Continental GT Speed, and it's just been unveiled in both coupe and convertible form here in Geneva. Its 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 ...

    Geneva: The Bentley Flying Spur V8 shows even a basic Bentley is a nice place to be
    1394119800

    While it is hard to call any Bentley entry-level, the Flying Spur V8 that's debuting at the Geneva Motor Show is technically the lowest rung among Bentley's four-doors. However, if our experience with the Continental GT V8 is anything to go by – the Spur and the Conti still share a platform, despite the former dropping "Continental" from its ...

    First Drive: 2014 Bentley Continental GT V8 S
    1392137820

    A Remarkably Grand Tourer Bentley still appeals to those with an appreciation for strong, Old World traditionalism. Cars wearing the storied Flying B have been discussed in wood-panelled drawing rooms by men wearing earthy tweeds and corduroy through clouds of fragrant cigar and pipe smoke, for decades. It is a company that has spent nearly 100 years ...

    Report: Bentley's SUV will be first of many plug-in hybrids
    1390078800

    Bentley is not exactly a company known for its environmental credentials. Sure, it recently cut its water usage down by over a third, and given the relatively small number of vehicles it produces, the British firm's overall impact on the environment may be negligible compared to mass-market rivals. And of course, its affluent customers are hardly likely ...

    Report: Bentley CEO says Mulsanne Convertible isn't going to happen [w/poll]
    1379957340

    Bentley and Rolls-Royce may be as direct as competitors get, but that doesn't mean they go head-to-head on every model. Bentley is arguably more focused on its Continental line, with the pricier Mulsanne branching off of it. Rolls-Royce, meanwhile, only recently expanded (relatively) down-market with the Wraith and the Ghost on which it's based. For ...

    Report: Bentley targeting Range Rover with 12-cylinder SUV
    1379525280

    The eventual arrival of Bentley's upcoming SUV in 2016 will likely prove the most pivotal new product to come from Crewe since the debut of the Continental GT in 2003. And Bentley isn't messing around. The British automaker is taking aim directly at the Range Rover, saying that it will be just as capable off-road. That's a mighty big claim for a company ...
