Extreme Bentley will Pack 630hp

Bentley will have more horsepower than Continental GT Speed, currently its most powerful car on the road

Lux automaker Bentley will be unveiling "The fastest. Most powerful Bentley. Ever." (punctuation as per the British luxury brand) at the Geneva auto show next month.

What news is available is minimal. The W12 bi-turbo engine will come with 630 hp and makes the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in about 4 seconds. This Bentley sports 30 hp more than the Continental GT Speed, currently Bentley most powerful offering on the road.

Autowereld reports that the rear seats have been removed for weight saving purposes. Which really isn't right for a Bentley. Yes? You remove the back seat of a Clio to make it go faster. Such conduct really seems unbecoming a luxury automaker such as Bentley. But these are desperate times.

We will have to wait for Geneva for more news. Or for Bentley to confirm or correct for us whatever it is up to here. Hey, why don't they hang a set of fluffy white dice from the rear-view mirror while they're at it?

If that's anywhere near the truth, then I reckon Bentley's lost their way. Bentleys should weigh in at well over two tons, have an enormous V8/V12 up front and have enough space for all passengers to comfortably stretch their legs. Bentley shouldn't do track times in their current cars...

Or the pure awfulness that is the use of grammar in that ridiculous "The fastest. Most powerful Bentley. Ever." quote. It reads like Clarkson with something in his throat. "Most powerful Bentley" is NOT a sentence.

Correct me if I am wrong but, complete sentences and grammar only really applies to the written word. There are many phrases that are perfectly acceptable spoken, but not even close to acceptable when they are written down.

Removing the rear seats is nothing compared to the pure awfulness that is the front bumper. It looks like Da Silva was either drunk or high when he approved this cheap, aftermarket-looking bumper... Funny you mentioned the Clio, that frond bumper would look bad even on a Clio!
