By: Madeleine Taylor 11/01/2019 The hair-raising Bentley Continental GT convertible is a romantic dream come true for those with fat wallets. Bentley has expanded its Continental GT range with this new convertible, says Jake Groves in Car magazine. “It’s for the millionaire who spends most of their life on a riviera of some kind – and happens to have a real liking for tweed.” That’s because the convertible top can be bought with a “contemporary tweed fabric roof”, according to Bentley. It’s just an option, though. The cabin is quieter than the previous generation coupé, and that is no mean feat, says Tom Harrison on the BBC’s Top Gear website. Wind and road noise can be a real problem with convertibles, but not for this Bentley. The new Conti GT Convertible is three decibels quieter on the move than its predecessor (and that wasn’t a loud It’s also beautiful in the old-fashioned sense, says … [Read more...] about Bentley Continental GT convertible: an escape from the humdrum

Matthew DeBord, provided by Published 11:17 am CST, Tuesday, December 25, 2018 Matthew DeBord/BI The Ford Mustang GT and the Chevy Camaro SS are two of the USA's most famous muscle cars, but both icons have been updated for the modern world. I drove both and was impressed with the staying power of their old-school V8 engines — but also the new technologies that Chevy and Ford have deployed. Ultimately, I preferred the wilder Mustang GT, but the Chevy Camaro SS might be easier for some drivers to live with day-to-day.

With the Mustang and the Camaro, Ford and Chevy have engineered hybrids of a muscle car and a sports car. OK, they can't quite do it … [Read more...] about I drove a $50,000 Ford Mustang GT and a $52,000 Chevy Camaro SS in a battle of all-American muscle cars — and the winner was clear (GM, F)
The Mercedes-AMG GT C is something of a dying breed: a two-seat European GT car with a massive engine. I recently sampled the Mercedes-AMGGT C in New York City and suburban New Jersey. This is one stylish beast of a car that actually serves up excellent bang for the buck. What kind of person are you? Do you like high-performance cars? Do you prefer it if they cost a lot of money and have the engine where the engine is supposed to be, right up front under the hood? Do you think back seats are a waste of space? Well then, you are in a narrow demographic with precious few vehicles to choose from. If it must be ‘Merican, look no farther than the Corvette and get yourself some incredible performance at an amazing value. If money’s no object, say hello to the $US475,000 Ferrari 812 Superfast.
