Bentley’s 2021 Continental GT3 Pikes Peak racer, based on the company’s race- and championship-winning car, powered its way through the 12.42-mile course running on a biofuel-based gasoline. Unfortunately, Rhys Millen’s time of 6:36.281 across the shortened course, due to icy conditions as well as engine issues, was only good enough for second place in the Time Attack 1 class.
Yes, Bentley not only makes luxury cars, but high-end home furniture as well. Unfortunately, you’ll have to shell out $14,710 for the ‘Newent Sofa’, $9,040 on the ‘Newent Armchair’, a $4,230 ‘Newent Chair’, and a whopping $11,950 for the ‘Newent Bed’ that you see above, for a combined total of $39,930 before any taxes.
The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar Grand Tourier could be the world’s most luxurious roadster and it’s limited to just 12 examples worldwide, priced at a whopping £1.5 million ($1.91 million USD).

Belgium-based custom carmaker Krugger has unveiled its latest creation: the Krugger FD. This open-top speedster only has a single seat, and is based on the ‘streamline’ Art Deco design philosophy from the 1930s. It was commissioned by two businessmen – François Fornieri and André Dupont – and took approximately three years to complete. As you might have already guessed, the letters FD stand for the clients’ surname initials.
The current-generation Bentley Continental GT shares the Volkswagen-developed MSB platform with the second-generation Porsche Panamera, and it’s the first production car ever to have an entire body side made from the Super Formed process, or a technique using aluminum which allows more complex, sharply defined body lines. The twin-turbocharged W12 engine producing 626 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque helps the luxury coupe accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 207 mph. Tuning shop Arden decided to give it an aggressive supercar makeover. Read more for another picture and additional information.
