n extremely sophisticated automobile with a combination of brute force and quick handling that makes your hair stand on end with joy – that’s the way with Bentley! Their cars aren’t only “sharp” in their impression design-wise, but also radiate a regal luxury and elegance. Start it up and you’ll get weak in your knees from the engine’s singing, bubbling, mighty sound.

This is a real whopper of a vehicle with a total weight of 2,3 tons. But in spite of the weight, you’ll be surprised at its agile maneuverability. Tight and precise in its character when you start pushing it – but a soft and smooth cruiser all the same. The delightful exhaust note is best enjoyed by standing behind the car when it’s running. Check out those tastefully designed figure-eight exhaust pipes and let the powerful rumble pulse through your body.
All their models have great interiors, perfectly crafted. Every seam is a sight for sore eyes and you will find nothing but perfect and beautiful craftsmanship. No efforts have been spared and the materials are only
the best leather, laminated wood, carbon fiber and aluminum. All the laminated wood has been hardened for 72 hours and then treated with five layers of clear coat. The interior is topped off with a Breitling clock in the middle of the dashboard. The cooperation has not only resulted in sophisticated clocks for the cars, but also exquisite watches. The collaboration is named ”Breitling för Bentley” and the latest model, the Bentley GMT Light Body B04, comes equipped with Breitling’s own chronograph caliber.
The Bentley’s V8 gasoline engine has a 4,0 liter displacement, 528 horsepower at 6,000 r/min and a massive torque of 680 Nm at 1,700 r/min.
