Bentley Commercial: A W12 Drifting on Ice

Bentley-Continental_GT_2012 DriftEver thought like drifting your living room on ice? Well here you have it. Presenting the luxuriousness and massive Bentley continental GT going sideways. Under the bonnet, a 6.0 twin turbo W12 engine delivering 567hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. This massive amount of torque is transmitted to the all-wheel drive system via an upgraded six-speed Quickshift transmission that allows double down shifting (from 4th to 2nd gear for example). The exterior look still hasn’t changed, no face lifting no nothing. Regarding the interior, you know what to expect, the typical Bentley luxury. This two tons car is able to achieve the 0-100km in 4.6 seconds, exactly like the lightweight Alfa Romeo 4C that was previously reviewed on TheAdsGarage.

Bentley-Continental_GT_2012 drifting backNot at all my type of cars. I would never buy a car in that category. I find it too massive and too luxurious, the typical car of a 65 years old millionaire equipped with a white mustache and a cigar, that goes to the Golf court every Sunday. I would rather own a classic car like a GT500 or a Mercedes 300SL.

Subaru Commercial: Scorched

This is one whooping commercial! This ad by Subaru is filmed in a melting garage due to an unknown source of heat. The effects filmed at 2000 fps using Phantom technology at the beginning of the video are just amazing. I already discussed the BRZ in my previous post “Your Story With”. This car is the result of the combined work of two big car companies Toyota and Subaru. I find their outcome really special and amazing. The car has very special and unique features like a very low center of gravity, light weight and a descent design.

MINI Commercial: Guinness World Record

Parallel ParkingAfter the Italian Job, Mini is introducing a Special Edition of the new MINI Coupe: The Chinese Job edition. VW was the last sponsor of the tightest parallel parking competition that was won by the German Ronny Wechselberger who parked a VW Polo in a space measuring 26cm longer than that of his car. It is now the fifth time in the past two years, that the Guinness World Record title for the tightest parallel parking job is beaten. It is now in the hands of Han Yue, a Chinese driver who park drifted a MINI Cooper S in a space bigger by 15 cm than that of his car. Check out this IMPRESSIVE video!!

BMW Commercial: The Zagato Coupe

This amazing hand-built beast is the result of BMW getting together with Milanese coachbuilder Zagato. I must say this car has a very aggressive front side that was designed specially around the engine so that it fits perfectly. The front grill is covered with “Z”. The rear part of the car doesn’t seem like it is following the same aggressive spirit as the front. It a bit too futuristic. I would have preferred a more “Z4 look a like” look for the back. Nothing was announced by BMW regarding the engine specifications but I would predict that the BMW Zagato will feature the V8 twin-turbo 4.4-liter of the 2012 M6. It will probably be tuned to release around 600hp. There is a big probability that this concept will go into production in the recent future.

Mini Commercial: “The Best Test Drive Ever”

Video

This is the ad introducing the new Mini Coupé. The ad is really nice combining the sportiness of this new Mini and the 6 words that people chose to describe the best test drive ever. The Mini in itself is a very nice car specially with the top of. I drove a 2007 Mini CooperS and I must say it handles really well though I think it somehow lacks a bit of power. This new Coupé model sounds amazing hope I can put my hands on one of those soon.
