Everywhere you look the continental -- like it's -- 150%. Scale model of a regular car and the details I love include this window opening when all the glasses that you build killer list. And these utterly flush. Understated tail lights. -- -- -- Tell inside this Bentley we have the old washing piano black and stern black leather finish -- -- their signature. Diamond quilt but this is -- -- -- car you can order this. You can imagine. We're not gonna go there let's go tech. Finally Bentley is got a new or modern head -- think of my soapbox for a minute I think a lot of the manufacturers of these extremely expense. Heart -- -- well we're gonna bowled over with the interior the performance the styling. But the folks who buy these cars are the same ones who -- the new iPhone and iPad every iMac -- music system the art technology leaks. You -- -- -- isn't the best tech and forum. When that in my. This is a very good VW -- east Volkswagen owns little quirks -- you can have either two 3-D top -- -- traffic you can't have traffic on 3-D for example or traffic on top out but beyond that the quality of it is good especially when you're zoomed in to a certain level it's hard drive based system. And our media choices am FM and HD radio or standard on this -- satellite radio of course under the media tab -- the more interesting stuff. Optical disc here. Optional with a package brings us a six -- in the glove boxes well you also that in the I control it's a multi device interface we happened at a pig tail on the air for an IOS device we've also got an SD card slot right here for the four view would -- that.

Ultimately be here. The socket -- button brings you this screen to set your suspension for settings from comfort -- sport. Needless but fun stuff like these it would mean to raise it up and down -- -- -- leave it to its own devices canceled after about a week we have been able audio system and I am it's an English boutique audio manufacturer. And it gets us eleven speakers driven by sixteen channels which are networks but anyway it's in there and they use -- special drivers speakers that are. Which they say -- -- audio books more naturally need all I can tell you is this like so many high dollar systems and this cost like seven -- and optionally. It makes CDs and tremendous satellite radio ghastly. In back is the county jail don't put them back there are listed in real bad dream -- -- that behind that is one of the biggest drugs. Making. It goes on -- arts. One choice only on the gearbox in the -- six speed automatic drop back for sport mode. Over this gates for shifting mode you have column mounted -- -- normally of these that I like my -- to -- in the same place however I drive down here. Not up here because I -- driver training couple decades ago but. There's nothing to reach for -- -- I want the little ears the come down. Engine is widening. And continental GTW. Twelve of the Volkswagen. It's sort of like a -- eight -- an extra brake cylinders that is there. It's a group. We're talking about 567. Horsepower 516. Foot pounds of torque thanks to. Twin -- like twelve -- wasn't enough. To sixty is more more and more spectrum. That's impressive enough but I didn't expect this car weighs 5100. Homes the last thing in the long -- -- less -- that. MPG in the downside 1219. When your grandma drive and single it. Or try the new engine option -- -- are the four liter direct injection twin Turbo V8. Users still -- the activation.

Driving the content penalty is likely to get it would -- project -- mr. -- in the drive everyday driving -- back to work whenever. It's kind of a more. It's a big old argument -- -- it feels all 5150. Of -- health. But the importance -- or better yet shoot yourself. -- that suspension to a sporting setting and stand on this -- -- the kiddie -- I -- -- -- of 2000. And it turns and really nicely because -- -- -- forgot to mention it's all wheel drive one thing it doesn't. Do you get rid of its body car has a lot of body roll. But luckily it's got a lot of -- -- well and a lot of power to you all four paws crawling you out of trouble. That a kind of power this card delivers an if you really stand on -- its global. The most responsive kind of power its biggest placement although it is a twelve. That means of the cylinders are little more responsible if they were large in -- eight. But there is some Turbo lag in the air and generally speaking -- some thinking -- -- ball those sensors and processors to -- you really wanna do what you. It's amazing that you control a car this big in this heavy but it turns this hard. Is coming out of the shiny side up but should every mistake you for -- sports car. -- -- -- if I know you like me. I've got 200 quietly around -- goes on a car. That's what it costs about 185 something base but 3000 -- that its gas guzzler tax 4600. Is destination charge. Now the options it'll take -- CNET style that enable audio -- about seven -- I'm sorry he's skeptical but I'm definitely gonna skip that option on the sexy because I'm not getting -- -- -- -- colors are wrong.
