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.

MINI: THE Backfilp!

MINI backflip

After launching a teaser (which you can access by clicking here), MINI finally released the full video of there attempt to achieve a backflip in a MINI! They used the over modified super light MINI JCW Coutryman rally car for the stunt. It was driven by Chicherit, a world champion freestyle skier and champion rally driver. He completed the jump in Tignes, France. The suspension was modified in order for it to be able to absorb the chock of the landing. MINI claims to have achieved the first unassisted backflip in the world. By “unassisted” they mean that nothing was used to help the car rotate. Impressive!

Snow and Ice Driving: Audi RS5

This is what I call a beast on the snow. I mean controlling a 4.2L V8 engine
that delivers 450 hp and 317.15 lb-ft of Torque going sideways and specially on the snow, believe me is not an easy task. Well maybe it is, if you have Quattro.
