Floyd Mayweather is a free man once again after serving 90 days for domestic battery in Las Vegas. Lots of friends and family were there to pick him up, but when it came time to leave he left with 50 Cent in the back of a Bentley. 50 Cent is also Mayweather’s new promoter so it’s time to get down to business.
The rumors were true: Bentley will be debuting the car you see here, the 2013 Continental GT Speed, at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. And while it doesn’t look all that different (if at all) from a standard Conti GT, the changes under the hood are what sets this big coupe apart from its kin. Take notice: With a top speed of 205 miles per hour, this is the fastest production car that Bentley has ever produced.
That outrageous top end comes courtesy of some extra grunt from the twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 engine. Overall output has been increased by 49 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque, meaning there’s a whopping 616 hp and 590 lb-ft on tap. A new close-ratio, eight-speed automatic transmission has been employed to manage all that power (which is still sent to all four wheels), and all in, the Continental GT Speed will sprint to 60 miles per hour in four seconds flat._ SOURCE FOR MORE INFORMATION
Ladies and gents, meet the production-spec Aston Martin Vanquish. Sure you got a sneak peek earlier today, but we now have a complete gallery with high resolution photos, a video and of course, the full details on the car that replaces the DBS.
The key word to remember with the new Vanquish is evolution as the name may have changed, but the rest of the car is closely related to the DBS.
That doesn’t mean Aston Martin hasn’t made important changes to the Vanquish that borrows its name from the DBS’ predecessor built between 2001 and 2007 starting with the stiffer, fourth generation VH bonded aluminum monocoque chassis._ SOURCE FOR MORE INFORMATION
Usually when it comes to these kind of cars, you just leave them be and let the stock designs do the work. Mansory seems to take a very different approach when it comes to this and makes their cars look as fly as possible. They recently put on a show and had the Bentley Continental, Mercedes AMG, McLaren MP4-1, and Lambo Aventador all on display. Custom carbon fiber to make the cars look more sleek and lighter. What do you think?
Well just like 2 Chainz said himself “When they gone make that Bentley Truck!?”. The car is finally out and you can bet a lot of rappers are about to have it. Meek Mill already Tweeted that he can afford it so look for these in a lot of music videos coming up. For more technical and mechanical information on this car click here.
Birdman seems like such a nice dude. Gives out turkeys, makes Superstar artists, and then buys them Bentleys to celebrate their success. In this next video he gets them for Lil’ Wayne and Mack Maine. Looks like that $5 million bet didn’t hurt him a bet.
Thanks to Nicki Minaj being so generous we got to be featured on the front page of mediatakeout.com. According to the site she bought her boyfriend/hypeman Safaree a new Bentley for the holidays. Safaree is wearing a Rich Kids Cursive tee (Gold/Black) which is available in our store for 30% off. Just enter promo code “Rich2011″ and you’re good to go.
Okay I understand buying some expensive shades like Gucci or Louis… but damn. Bentley and Estede just recently collaborated to put out this $45,000 pair of sunglasses. Can’t really see who would pay for these besides some “super ballers” but thought I’d share the information anyways. If you want to know more about these click here.
