Fancy a second-hand Bentley Continental Speed GT and/or a 2008 Land Rover ? Well, we have some good news for you! Someone is selling them for cheap!

But before we reveal who the seller is, we have to warn you that if you ever double-cross this dude, then prepared to get your face smashed in.

That’s right; WWE wrestler Dave Batista – or as he is more popularly called, Batista (didn’t strain any muscles thinking of a wrestling name, did he?) – is putting up his Bentley and Land Rover on eBay.
The Continental Speed GT has had a few minor tunings done on it, including custom wheels, and a grille kit while the Land Rover also has its custom rims, plus some detailed trim work and a blaster of a sound system out on the trunk.

You can buy the Bentley for $172,999 or you can go through the tedious job of having to bid for it. Meanwhile, the Land Rover sells for ‘just’ $75,000.

Like we said, we urge you to have a little more caution because you never know, Batista just might throw in a little Batista Bomb just for kicks.

If you thought the very feminine Lancia designed by ELLE that we brought you yesterday was the perfect gift for the woman of your dreams, the modification specialists at Mansory have just come up with the car of every woman’s dreams with the Vitesse Rosé based on the Bentley Continental GT and it will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week.

Mansory Vitesse Rosé will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show

In French the word Vitesse means velocity and Rosé is the color that covers this very feminine super car. The exterior of the Vitesse features Mansory’s signature aero package that consists of a few carbon fiber bits as well as a new front bumper with larger intakes up front and a redesigned rear unit complete with cutouts for the quad tipped over under stainless steel exhaust that gives Barbie’s Bentley an earth rumbling exhaust note. Finishing off the exterior of the highly modifiedd Bentley are a set of Mansory designed 21 inch lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT rubber for an added level of fun behind the wheel.

On the inside functionality and luxury are the themes that Mansory touches on by using premium materials like soft supple leather, highly detailed carbon fiber accents and meticulous hand stitched details that set the Vitesse Rosé apart from ordinary Bentleys. The very exclusive Vitesse Rosé will be limited to only three units starting at 269,000 euros each.

Now, here’s a promotion that will be hard to turn down.

Pearl Motor Yachts, a British yacht company, is enticing customers with a one-of-a-kind offer that is too good to be true – if you have money, that is.
The company is selling their Pearl 60 yachts with one pretty sick add-on: a free Bentley Continental GT Coupe.

You read that right. A Bentley Continental GT Coupe. Before we start questioning the sanity of these guys, let’s first consider the situation the entire industry is in. The current recession has caused the sale of luxury items to take a hit and as a result, these businesses have tried to find alternate means on how to sell their products to a market that is increasingly drying up. The folks over at Pearl motor Yachts decided that a free Bentley, which by itself, costs around $200,000, would be the way to go.

BMW had their Art Cars and Mini has specialty celebrity designed automobiles, but Bentley decided to take things a step further and recruit contemporary artist Romero Britto to create the centerpiece for their “Come to my world” exhibition in Germany. The English automaker provided Mr. Britto with a Continental GT as a canvas, prepared with a Bentley Blue base coat for the South Florida artist to get to work.

The car is covered in colorful, comic-like figures featuring a large multi colored flower on the hood, winged heart on the driver’s door, ladybug inspired door mirrors and a few orange and purple stars. The negative space is covered with Britto’s recognizable signature, similar to the mathematical symbol for pi; it is consists of a “T” followed by a squiggly line that sometimes goes down like a backwards “J” and other times is just a continuation of the character before it. The entire feeling of this piece of 200 MPH artwork is that it is as playful as the GT is fun to drive.

This mysterious Bentley Continental GT was spotted recently in Spain. What is so mystifying you may be asking? If you look closely into the back window at the rear deck lid, you will notice a few bare metal items strapped down. What this looks like to us, is the control unit for an electric motor and battery pack combination. Could this be the beginning of a hybrid GT, or did this Bentley owner’s stereo shop just do a shoddy job?

If you have any idea, please let us know!

Lately, golden cars have been popping up everywhere, especially in Dubai. Following in the tradition of the golden Hamann Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and the golden Bugatti Veyron , may we present to you, the golden Bentley Continental GT.

If white has become the color of choice for Europeans and black the chosen shade for Americans, it would seem that Arabs are partial to the reflective golden surface treatment. Lets just hope that the golden GT doesn’t share the same fate as the golden Porsche .

After our first round of spy shots , the future Bentley Continental Supersports has been caught on video, this time testing at the famed Nurburgring racetrack in Germany.

It can also reach 100 MPH from a standstill in just 8.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 204 MPH.

Bentley is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. It thinks that the economies of the world will have recovered enough by next year that its customer base will be back to buy. So now Bentley is moving up the schedule for the new Continental GT (possibly previewed in the Supersports ) to give customers something to look at when they are back in the money.

"We know that coming out of the dip is when new models will pay off," Stuart McCullough, Bentley’s board member for sales and marketing told Automotive News. "We have done enough work with our customers to understand what they are thinking and when they are likely to be back in the market."

Just like Jaguar’s development plans , Bentley is realizing the best way to win in the long term is to have fresh products when bank accounts are on the upswing. That means making the tough decision to spend on development when pockets are still empty. Good for you Bentley.
