Based on the current Rolls-Royce Coupe, the new 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith offers the same shooting brake-style roof as the gorgeous Bentley Continental GT and even has its rear part clearly inspired by the archrival’s sporty grand-tourer. The price is very different, though. Unveiled this week during the 84th Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, the car will probably go on sale in Q3 at an estimated price of some €250,000: almost 1.5 times more expensive than the current Continental.

Although the Japanese word “tetsu” means “iron”, and although some purists may argue that covering a Bentley in gold lacquer is as vulgar as a platinum Rolex decorated with diamonds and pearls, I must say that the idea is not exactly off-center when it comes to highly expensive items. For many years, gold-top Gibson Les Pauls have been instruments of choice for many well-known guitarists, as are custom made grand pianos from brands like the Italian Fazioli Pianoforti, and even Baroque-styled furniture that even now often comes with gold paint on its surfaces.
With its 600 bhp and 750 Nm of torque under the hood, the recently unveiled 2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed sport coupe is the first production Bentley to top 200 mph. And since, at this velocity, there is a cubic relationship between the increase in the speed of a car and the energy wasted to combat air drag, it is the most powerful member of the family, too.
The German tuning specialist MTM has recently presented its new engine tuning program for the gorgeous Bentley Continental GT sports car.
