Tidal Wave On Wheels

Tidal Wave On Wheels

The Tidal Wave on Wheels of the supercar world recently had a newly tuned, slightly more racy version added to the lineup.

The Bentley GT. Now in Speed edition (as if the others weren’t enough to require you pack a fresh supply of underwear for the problems caused by that lead right foot…).

The Tidal Wave on Wheels of the supercar world recently had a newly tuned, slightly more racy version added to the lineup. Ok, so supercar is a little strong. But the stretch is not as far as you may think in the real world. Sure a new Lamborghini, Ferrari or Porsche would probably have the edge on a track, but blatting from A to B in the USA, you’d be hard pressed to make your case.

With the new GT Speed weighing in with 616 horses from its top of the line W12 engine she canters to the 60mph line in 4 seconds dead, and will gallop on to a panty wetting 205mph (obviously on that airstrip your pal owns, not the I95). That's not to be sniffed at. No matter what fancy piece of Italian machinery you are piloting.

Test-Pilot-For-A-Day this time around we took our tango orange chariot for a blast through the cobbled and potholed streets of Gotham and out to the fresh air of the mountains north of the city. Its always a good test of any beast to see how she reacts to the city and then the open road, with a few serious twisties thrown in and the odd pit stop for a cup of fine coffee.

Some weren't too keen on the orange livery, but I found it very du jour and liked it a lot. After all, it's not as if the GT is really that understated much as it tries to be. So why not put a wolf in wolf’s clothing for once?

Sublimely comfortable, fast as all hell, surprisingly good around the twisties and perfect for that out of town affair…
