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.

Mercedes Commercial: The SLS AMG Black Series

After launching the SLS AMG 45th Anniversary edition a couple of weeks a go, Benz are  announcing the SLS we were all waiting for, the Black Series edition. Eight month after the C63 Black edition, an SLS was a must. This new version of the famous SLS is not only road friendlier but also faster and lighter than the SLS GT. Does it have a screaming, shouting, ear fu**ing V8 combined with a whooping exhaust? Most probably. But this time the famous 6.2 V8 has been squeezed and now delivers 622hp and 634 lb-ft. The weight saving has been achieved thanks to the installation of light weight ceramic brakes, and lots of CRFP (Carbon fiber reinforced polymers) made parts here and there. The end result is a Black Edition 70kgs lighter than the previous SLS GT. I really like the fact that this Benz includes a lot of features from the 45th anniversary edition while being a derivable comfortable car that you can take on a spin around the track on Sundays. The Solar Beam paint is very similar to the Electric Yellow of the MINI models. I really liked the color but I think that, as all Black Edition models, this SLS should definitively be featured in white. The ad by itself is nothing special, the intention of Mercedes was just to show there new creation to the world; just show it not listen to it.

Mercedes Commercial: SLS AMG GT3 “45th Anniversary”

sls exteriorA few days ago Mercedes revealed its all brand new SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary edition model. I just love the “anniversary editions” sports cars they always have amazing features. Most of the times, the features added to the car transforms it into a collection car, not a “better to drive version” of the production model. This SLS AMG GT3 is a perfect example. Would you be able to drive this version of the SLS in your every days life? I dough it. For this 45th anniversary, the AMG team worked on a race edition of the SLS model. They mostly developed the aerodynamics. This edition is much lighter than the road version. It features a huge rear spoiler, a roll cage and other aerodynamic parts.

The interior is completely optimized to minimize weight. A big number of the luxury features have been replaced by carbon fiber race like buttons. Only 5 of these monsters will be build. They will be completely hand made and delivered by the AMG team directly to the lucky customers. Regarding the engine, the SLS GT3 will feature the normal 6.3 liters V8 that is available in the SLS AMG model.

Mercedes Commercial: C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series

Introducing the official ad of the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series. Like the C63 AMG with its 451hp and 443lb-ft of torque wasn’t fast enough, Mercedes introduced the coupe black edition of that model featuring 510hp and 457 lb-ft. This upgraded version of the C63 AMG is just wonderful.
