  2. Bentley is set to end the fabled W12 combustion engine's production next year. Source: https://carbuzz.com/news/say-goodbye-to-the-bentley-w12-with-an-inside-look-at-how-its-built With electrification in its future, Bentley is set to end the fabled W12 combustion engine's production, with the last example leaving the factory in April 2024. And while the automaker has already celebrated its retirement at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, here's another way to laud the iconic engine's imminent departure - by knowing how it's made. YouTube channel Frame gives us an inside look at Bentley's Crewe factory where the W12 engine is made, showing us the entire process of assembling the 6.0-liter twin-turbo 12-cylinder mill. With a production line manned by 2nd and 3rd-generation Bentley engine builders, Bentley marries impeccable British craftsmanship with precision German engineering brought about by Volkswagen AG's acquisition. Every engine is built with great attention to detail. Machines assist skilled technicians in putting in exact amounts of torque on every nut and bolt. Even the connecting rod bearings are weight-matched to each rod before installation on the crankshaft for a perfectly balanced engine. Weight plays a huge role in any high-performance machine, hence Bentley's use of high-grade aluminum for the engine blocks and heads and titanium for each connecting rod for extra strength. It takes two technicians and a few machines to complete an engine. These technicians meticulously review each built engine with high-precision measurement tools to ensure their work meets Bentley's exacting specifications. Each engine is carried by an automated guided vehicle (AGV) taking each unit to workstations for technicians to complete them. There are a total of 64 stations that a car goes through to be completed; each station only takes nine minutes to complete its task. It takes a total of 127 minutes to complete a car. Once completed, these engines undergo rigorous pressure and dyno-testing, ensuring they match their specified outputs. While we're sure they could achieve more, the highest output currently configured is the 740 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque attained for the Bentley Batur. Data analytics track the performance of each car and identify areas for improvement. The historic Bentley factory in Crewe is the very first carbon-neutral automobile factory in the world, having received the internationally recognized PAS 2060 standard for carbon neutrality back in 2019. The British marque aims to build on the carbon-neutral status of the Crewe factory by investing in the Bentley Dream Factory to become climate-neutral, end-to-end, from 2030 onwards.
  3. TL;DR - Bentley driver was caught driving against the flow of traffic, leaving traces of leaked fuel. He was eventually arrested after police reports were made. There's just endless outrageous/appalling road incidents in Singapore. Typically, it'll either be a road rage confrontation or some sort of chain collision - which isn’t too surprising since Singaporeans are just really 'kiasu' creatures to begin with. One 'chiong', all follow suit. But this accident is quite a rare occurrence. Watch this 76-second video to see how this Bentley went against traffic flow, thinking this is his grandfather’s road. What happened? Cam-car reported that the Bentley driver drove against traffic along CTE and mounted a kerb at Ang Mo Kio before getting arrested. At the same time, his very ‘huat’ car also had some type of fluid (most likely petrol?) leaking all the way back to 6 Jalan Angklong, presumably his residence. SCDF and Traffic Police arrived after a police report was made. It is unclear what happened after. But either way, I don’t know if there’s any valid or near-valid excuse for this. Online Chatter Seems like netizens have come to a consensus that the Bentley driver drink-drove. What do you think?

  4. (Bloomberg) -- Sales of luxury cars in Singapore remain resilient despite the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, the Business Times reported Friday, citing data from the Land Transport Authority and automakers. Six luxury brands — Aston Martin Holdings, Bentley Motors Ltd., Ferrari NV, Automobili Lamborghini SPA, McLaren Automotive Ltd. and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd. — sold a total of 178 cars in the first nine months of 2020 versus 256 units for all of last year, according to the report. After adjusting for Singapore’s partial lockdown, the companies sold about 30 cars a month, up from 21 a month in 2019, the BT said. Still, registrations for the high-end car market are a lagging indicator as orders can be made far in advance of delivery, so data may not always accurately reflect a brand’s current performance, the report said. “Sales have been picking up since reopening and we attribute that to customer confidence coming back,” Bentley’s director for the Asia-Pacific region, Bernd Pichler, told the newspaper. Chong Kah Wei, a general manager at McLaren Singapore, said customer orders continued to accumulate. https://sg.finance.yahoo.com/news/ferrari-and-bentley-find-buyers-in-singapore-despite-the-pandemic-024059177.html
  5. First of all, let's define the term 'Karen'. According to Wikipedia, 'Karen' is defined as: Watch this video to catch Singapore's very own Karen and her husband in action: What Happened? This incident occurred at Red Swastika School, supposedly one of Singapore's "branded" Primary schools. Two security officers attempted to stop a Bentley from entering the school as it did not have a valid vehicle label. Unhappy at how the Bentley was refused access into the school, the female passenger of the Bentley pulled the most basic 'Karen' move ever. She immediately got out of the car and whipped out her phone to film the school's front gate and two security officers. Moments later, she hopped back into the passenger seat of the Bentley. And this was when matters escalated. The Bentley driver, supposedly the husband of 'Karen', started driving the car into the school in an attempt to get both security officers out of the way. However, the security officer in the luminous green vest stood firm in front of the Bentley to prevent it from entering the school, risking his life in the process. This caused the security officer to stumble back a few steps before the Bentley came to a halt. Subsequently, the security officer could be seen bending down and holding his knees in discomfort. Not Caught On Film After the entire escapade, a staff from Red Swastika School granted access to the Bentley for it to enter the school. Later on, the Bentley couple was spotted alighting the kid inside the school's drop-off point. Was it necessary that you got out of your way to cause a traffic jam and risk the lives of others just to alight your kid inside the school's compound? Geez, how embarrassing for the kid. No Record Found After doing some poking around, it turns out that the Bentley's number plate does not exist in LTA's record. MMM...sus much? What do you guys think of this? Instantaneously, this reminded me of the road raging Audi driver incident (Refer below), where a car workshop gave the driver a wrongly printed number plate. I am not surprised if this turns out to be the case for the Bentley too. The Minister has spoken! UPDATE: 11/1/22, 3:55PM A recent user-submitted footage revealed the actual reason for preventing the Bentley from entering Red Swastika School. The Bentley driver apparently "cut queue" to turn into the school and attempted to enter the school by driving against the flow of traffic. Watch the video here: UPDATE: 11/1/22, 6:55PM The Bentley driver has been arrested. Netizens' Comments My man here straight up tagged the Minster of Education🙌🙌🙌 Actions must be taken against this outrageous Bentley driver!😡 Kudos to you, security uncle!

  6. Here's a case of bad driving judgement gone wrong. Spotted on ROADS.sg facebook page - this red Bentley Continental blocked by a road hogger on CTE towards the City on 18/4/21. The impatient driver overtakes by filtering two lanes to the left but realises that the lane leads off the expressway. In a flash, the driver signals and swerves back to the right and smacks into the innocent bike on the centre lane. Thankfully the cam car managed to catch the Bentley driver in the act. Naturally, all the keyboard warriors waste no youth blaming the Bentley for the accident... https://www.facebook.com/roadssg/videos/142665334476260
  7. OMG! I fapped so hard And the fridge in the boot! damn
  8. It seems like Santa is getting a slight boost for his intercontinental trip this Christmas, courtesy of one special Flying Spur V8 from Bentley and Mulliner. The "Reindeer Eight" - destined to one "world famous customer" (Bentley's own words) - swaps one cylinder for every one of Santa's reindeers, the result being just a small 542hp upgrade. Looks like Rudolph will be taking a break this year. The new car sports a gold 3D printed reindeer can be found in lieu of the Flying B mascot, and at the sides the V8 badges have been replaced by a special ‘Reindeer Eight’. A carbon diffuser to the front and rear bumper, carbon side sills and a boot lid spoiler will ensure maximum aerodynamic performance at cruising altitude. And to add to the festive design, the Mulliner Driving Specification 22-inch wheels and bonnet strip are finished in gold. The sleigh is also finished in deep red Cricket Bauble, one of the 62 colours available from the Bentley Extended Range. Which side of that list will you be this year? A Grand Black veneer that stretches across the dashboard in the cabin displays a North Pole winter night scene - supposedly to remind the customer what's in store back home, while the seats sport heating, ventilation, a multi-mode massage and adjustable bolsters, handy, for the many miles that will be travelled in the car. A Naughty and Nice list is also integrated in to the navigation system, apparently. What would your ideal globe trotter be?
  9. Some people don't deserve to drive. Watch the video below and see whether you agree with our harsh comment or not. Posted by My Grandfather's Road, another traffic-shaming facebook page, is this video of a Honda City that almost came to a complete stop while on the first lane of the ECP. It is unclear how long ago this accident happened as the in-car camera video dates the incident on the 27th of Dec 2019 but the post was published today, 22nd of July 2020. We have no idea why the Honda driver attempted to slow down. Could it be that he or she realised that there is an exit and wanted to turn off at the last minute?
  10. 2018 Bentley Continental GT Is Sleeker, Slimmer, Boasts 48V Mild-Hybrid System https://www.autoevolution.com/news/2018-bentley-continental-gt-is-sleeker-slimmer-boasts-48v-mild-hybrid-system-120061.html For the third-generation Continental GT, the British automaker decided to make the four-seat longer and wider. The front axle sits 135 millimeters further forward, thus creating the impression the hood is longer and the car is more hunkered down to the ground. All in all, these visual changes are made possibly by MSB, the platform Porsche developed with the Panamera in mind. With Porsche know-how, Bentley decided to mild hybridization in the form of a 48-volt electrical system. The reason? Dynamic Ride System, which uses electronic actuators on the anti-roll bar of each axle. Not only does themild-hybrid system improve handling, but the new Continental GT promises superior ride comfort. The interior is, make no mistake about it, just as impressive as the exterior. For starters, you’re asked to choose between 15 carpet options, 8 handcrafted veneer plus 4 dual-veneer options, as well as 15 upholstery options. 21-inch wheels come standard, with 22ers also available. Despite the fact Bentley offers a mind-boggling 17 exterior paint colors and 70 finishes in the extended range, customization is infinite provided the buyer’s pockets are deep enough. Compared to the 2017 model, the 2018 Bentley Continental GT relies on a dual-clutch transmission with eight forward gears. The fast-shifting tranny makes a great team with the revised W12 engine, a twin-turbo behemoth with 635 PS (626 horsepower) and 900 Nm (664 pound-feet) on tap. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph)? 3.7 seconds, thank you, on to a mind-bending 333 km/h (207 mph)! Bentley refused to confirm if the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 from the Panamera Turbo S will be added to the range at some point in the future, but chances are the synergy will happen in order to make the Continental GT attractive to a wider audience. Slightly lighter than before (2,250 kilograms or 4,960 pounds), the Continental GT further brags with body panels that are made out of aluminum crafted using Super Formed technology. “We are the world leader in luxury mobility and our products and services define new luxury in the automotive world. The new Continental GT encapsulates our desire to innovate as well as celebrate our heritage and take the Bentley ownership experience to the next, unparalleled level,”declared Wolfgang Durheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley.
  11. Just a decade ago, Volvo "shaken" the world with the launch of it flagship SUV, XC90, touted as a premium SUV (after BMW with its X5 & Mercedes with the GL). Since then, the SUV assault continue, with Audi, Lexus, Infiniti, Porsche and such jumping onto the bandwagon, in hope to have a slice of the big pie. Last September, Bentley officially introduce it Bentayga, the world first luxury SUV, with it first customer the Queen of Britain.

  14. Enjoy this short flim done by film director Kippenberger, who is also a car enthusiast, as he tells you what he his traveling experience from driving and being driven across two continents in the Bentley Mulsanne. No prizes for guessing my favourite part of the beautifully shot video is the burning of its rear tyres. Shredding tyres in slow motion never looked so good. I guess it better be when one piece of that 265mm, 21-inch tyres cost $5,000 a piece! http://dai.ly/x23vv33_212370618_auto You can also read his unusual review from Highsnobiety here
  15. hi, does anyone know whether there is any season parking available at this place? going there to work for about 1 year soon. are those road side coupon parking easily available, or need to go early? I am keen to find out the more affordable parking options there. thanks.
  16. Nobody likes to beat a red light. I have seen in some countries that they have a countdown timer that tells you from afar how many seconds you have got left before the light turns amber and red and again would show when would turn green at a red light. This I believe would at least help some from beating the red lights?
  17. From its unique architecture to its amazing skyline and eyewatering prices, the United Arab Emirate of Dubai has always done things very differently. Never afraid to flash its excess wealth, and famed worldwide for its conspicuous consumption, it’s no surprise that the local constabulary has accumulated the most exotic stable of police cars in the world. Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ferrari and more... it’s every petrolhead’s wishlist of motoring exotica, but a daily drive from some for the lucky officers serving in the desert. We take a look at the cars that will be on your tail if you’re foolish enough to consider speeding in Dubai, the land where the PCs most certainly aren’t plodders... BMW M6 Gran Coupe Engine: 4.4 V8, 552bhp | Top speed: 250km/h | 0-100km/h: 4.1 secs A relatively tame part of Dubai Police’s fleet, but BMW’s legendary ‘M’ badge signifies there’s no shortage of power. With a 4.4-litre V8, the M6 Gran Coupe is propelled from 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds, on its way to a limited top speed of 250km/h. At just under £100,000, this is one of the cheaper cars on the fleet, but rest assured those sumptuous leather seats will keep criminals comfortable. Mercedes SLS AMG Engine: 6.2 V8, 591bhp - Top speed: 320km/h - 0-100km/h: 3.7 secs As supercars go, few would deny that the Mercedes SLS AMG is a work of art, with its generously proportioned front end sweeping back to a dramatic set of gullwing doors. The Mercedes produces almost 600bhp from a 6.2-litre V8, and is capable of nearly 320km/h, doing 0-100km/h in under four seconds. Now where do the bad guys sit? Lamborghini Aventador Engine: 6.5 V12, 690bhp | Top speed: 350km/h | 0-100km/h: 2.9 secs A product of Lamborghini’s famous factory at Sant’Agata, the Aventador is striking in every way. Its rakish lines and aggressively flared arches and intakes give it a presence few cars can match. And with a massive 690bhp from the 6.5-litre V12 engine, this bull can charge to 350km/h and from 0-100km/h in a mightily impressive 2.9 seconds. But at £265,900, it’s definitely no cheap thrill. Aston Martin One-77 Engine: 7.3 V12, 750bhp | Top speed: 354km/h | 0-100km/h: 3.7 secs This is as special as they come from the legendary British maker. As the name suggests, the Aston Martin One-77 was a limited release of just 77 models worldwide. Beautifully hand-crafted materials and an obsessive attention to detail mark the car out. It’s no slouch, either, with 750bhp from a V12 and a top speed of 354km/h. The force’s accountant may be concerned at the £1,150,000 price tag, though. Ferrari FF Engine: 6.2 V12, 651bhp -| Top speed: 335km/h | 0-100km/h: 3.7 secs Practical and Ferrari are two words you rarely hear in the same sentence. The Ferrari FF is an exception, though, because it is a genuinely practical supercar with space for four occupants in a shooting brake bodystyle – the perfect choice for transporting criminals to the station quickly, thanks to its 651bhp V12 engine. Another costly addition to the Dubai police fleet. Bentley Continental GT Engine: 6.0 W12, 567bhp | Top speed: 317km/h | 0-100km/h: 4.3 secs Another British car, the Bentley Continental GT is a fine choice due to its superb refinement and quality. It’s hand-made at Bentley’s famous Crewe factory, and every effort is made to produce the perfect car, tailored to buyers’ every request. The 6.0-litre W12 engine catapults the car to just shy of 321km/h, and dispatches the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.3 seconds. Ford Shelby Mustang Roush Edition Engine: 5.0 V8, 575bhp | Top speed: 236km/h | 0-100km/h: 4.5 secs The Ford Mustang costs small change in relation to the other cars on the fleet, but doesn’t disappoint. This ‘pony car’ is more of a cobra, something its Shelby badge backs up. Modifier Roush has added even more power to the Ford, which features a highly tuned 5.0-litre V8. This pushes out 575bhp and gets the car from 0-100km/h quicker than the Bentley. It costs under a third of the price of its British rival, so what’s not to like? Whether it's for practical or publicity purposes, do you think it makes sense for the Dubai police force to run such an incredible fleet of supercars? What would the response of our tax payers be if Singapore police force attempted the same thing?
  18. Bentley is envisioning a powerful and even more efficient future with the Bentley Hybrid Concept – a technology showcase that previews Bentley’s first plug-in hybrid model, set to be a dedicated version of the all-new SUV available in 2017. The Bentley Hybrid Concept will be on display at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition on Sunday 20th April. As the first luxury brand to present a plug-in hybrid, Bentley leads the way in bringing new powertrain choice to the luxury automotive sector. Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, comments: “There is no doubt that plug-in hybrid technology is true to Bentley’s values of outstanding luxury and effortless performance. Combining our renowned engines with electric power reinforces and enhances both principles, and so we will gradually introduce this powertrain across our model range. By the end of the decade, at least 90% of our production will be available as a plug-in hybrid. We are proud to be pioneering these developments in the luxury sector.” The Bentley Plug-in Hybrid System Through Bentley’s hybrid system, customers will have a wider choice of modern, powerful and efficient powertrains. The plug-in hybrid system will offer a power increase of up to 25% together with a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions, both without any compromise to the exquisite luxury, timeless design and industry-leading refinement for which Bentley has become renowned. Bentley hybrids will also be capable of driving at least 50 km on electric power alone, allowing for emissions-free city driving with the option of enhanced performance on the open road. The Bentley Hybrid Concept The Bentley Hybrid Concept is based on the flagship model in the Bentley family, the Mulsanne, to show that hybrid technology enhances even the pinnacle of luxury and performance. Copper is used as an exterior and interior styling element to highlight the car’s electrical veins, including copper details to the headlamps, radiator shell bezel, brake calipers, feature line details and badges. Copper accents continue in the cabin, with inserts to the hand-crafted veneers fascias, switch bezels and instruments. Copper cross‑stitching to the Mulliner Driving Specification diamond-quilted interior provides the finishing flourish.
  19. Bentley Motors has firmly reinforced its position as the leading manufacturer of luxury vehicles in the world after announcing a 19 percent increase in global deliveries in 2013. 10,120 cars were delivered, the highest figure in Bentley's 95-year history, against 8,510 in 2012. New models were critical to this success. In 2013 Bentley launched the new Flying Spur, the fastest and most powerful Bentley four-door model ever. In the final four months of 2013, with full availability of the new model, Bentley delivered 2,005 Flying Spurs to customers - a phenomenal reception, considering the average yearly sales of 2,700 cars of its predecessor, the Continental Flying Spur, during its seven-year tenure. Deliveries also commenced for Bentley's open-top performance flagship, the Continental GT Speed Convertible. According to the latest figures, Bentley's full year market share performance in the luxury segment rose by three percentage points, taking it to 25 percent, a market leading position in a segment that decreased by six percent. Bentley's number one market throughout 2013 was the Americas region, finishing the year delivering 28 percent (3,140 cars) more cars than 2012 (2,457 cars), and 31 percent of the total deliveries. China remained the second biggest market, with 2,191 cars delivered in total over the year, against the previous year (2,253 cars). Deliveries in Europe were up by 11 percent, with 1,480 cars delivered to customers. Bentley's home market, the U.K., also saw impressive gains, delivering 1,381 cars, a 25 percent increase over 2012 (1,104 cars). Overall, this means that 86 percent of Bentley’s cars were shipped abroad. Bentley's growing presence in the Middle East and Asia Pacific resulted in deliveries hitting a record high in both markets. Performance was strengthened in the Middle East by Bentley's flagship model, the Mulsanne, with model sales up by 38 percent, and total deliveries increasing by 45 percent (1,185 cars) on 2012 (815 cars). In Asia Pacific, deliveries rose by 26 percent (452 cars) on the previous year (358 cars), driven by success of the two-door Continental GT model line. Finally, Japan saw growth of 53 percent, delivering 291 cars against a total of 190 cars in 2012. The global sales network also increased by 11 percent, to 193 showrooms.

  21. Bugatti Veyron It seems that Dubai is one of the richest cities that exist on Planet Earth. Not only is the city pretty, but it's potentially the safest one in this world as well. Well, if you don't really want to buy what I'm saying, you may want to have a look at the fleet of police cars the city has in store instead. Lamborghini Aventador Not so long ago, the Dubai Police Department already secured quite a few supercars such as the Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Lamborghini Aventador, Aston Martin One-77, and the Ferrari FF. Additionally, they also have the Chevrolet Camaro SS. Still, it seems that the local police now think that they shouldn
  22. Bentley has collaborated with Pankhurst London, a high end men's grooming salon, to retrofit six barber chairs using the luxury car maker's artistry and engineering knowledge with materials and finishing found in Bentley models. On the partnership, Bentley Motors' Director of Marketing, Stefan Buescher commented, "A key part of what makes Bentley special is our hand-crafted expertise in wood and leather that makes our car interiors a special place to be. Working with Pankhurst has given us the opportunity to show this craft in an innovative and exciting way to create a unique experience in London's finest barber shop. Only Bentley could make such exquisite and beautiful chairs." The refurbished chairs were covered using leather from eight hides. The headrest sports either Bentley or Pankhurst embroidery. The suspension system of the chairs was reworked to enhance the comfort level. If you cannot afford to own a Bentley, perhaps the next best thing to do is to have a haircut at Pankhurst when you are holidaying in London. Kimage Hair Studio and NEXT hair salon : any plans to upgrade to Bentley barber chairs?
  23. U.K. luxury automaker - Bentley - will open a new showroom in the land locked country of Belarus to expand its presence in the fast-growing Eastern Europe region later this year. Belarus or officially known as - The Republic of Belarus - is bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. The capital city is called Minsk, and apparently over forty percent of its land mass is forested, and its strongest economic sectors are service industries and manufacturing. I'm not sure how many affluent people are there but I guess the economy is pretty good. Sounds like a mini-Canada doesn't it? Anyway, Bentley's new dealership will be located in the heart of the capital - Bentley Minsk - will open in Summer 2013. Naturally the dealership will offer sales and aftersales services to customers of the luxury British marque. Bentley Minsk will present the full range of exclusive Bentley cars - from the powerful and elegant Continental GT and GT Convertible V8 and W12 models, to the refined Flying Spur and the Mulsanne luxury flagship. In keeping with the Bentley tradition, each model offers an unrivalled blend of effortless performance, peerless refinement, and hand-crafted contemporary luxury. More details pertaining to the showroom will be released soon.
  24. Do you remember seeing a video of an Indian boy driving a Ferrari some time ago on this blog? Well, in case you forget, the boy is the child of a man who is, frankly speaking, very well off. Mind you, he possesses a Bentley, Lamborghini, and a Ferrari - which is the problem this time around. The boy in question was only 9-years old when the video of him driving a Ferrari F430 was taken. Amusingly, it was his father, Mohammed Nisham, who recorded the video and even uploaded it to YouTube! Heck, his father must have, somehow, felt proud of his son's actions. Let me tell you, if I were him, there would have been no way I allowed the kid drive a car, let alone a supercar, man! Not only could the kid have run over someone to his/her death, but there were also alot of other potential accidents. For your information, the car has 500bhp under its hood which is, obviously, too much for a child to handle. However, quite miraculously, though, the 9-year old boy managed to avoid hitting anyone or anything. I used the word miraculous as the kid could barely see anything over the dashboard. Nisham let his son cruise in his aforementioned supercar in his residential area, which seems to be inhabited by wealthy people. Honestly, I didn't even realise that it was India in the first place. Nevertheless, it was only a matter of time before the local police department found out about the video and when they did, they decided to charge Nisham. The father of the child was convicted for encouraging underage driving as well as allowing a child without a driving license to manoeuver a car on a public road. Nisham told the police that he did that only to grant his son's birthday wish as the child had pleaded for months for his dad's permission to drive the red car. All the same though, police still considered the action as disturbing as it was irresponsible. I agree with the police in this case, Nisham shouldn't have tried to grant every single wish his child may have, even on his birthday. You're a father, pal, which means you should be wiser instead. It was also figured that the 9-year old kid had also driven Nisham's other cars, such as the Bentley and Lamborghini mentioned earlier. In case you have forgotten the video, here it is again for your convenience.
