Posh gets new ride
Now that Mrs. David Beckham, who made her own name as Posh Spice, has relocated with her husband to Southern California, she needed a new ride. And, rumor has it, it was none other than Tom Cruise who came through with a new Bentley Continental GTC – even one a bit blinged out with larger, mongramed wheels and monogrammed headrests.
These photos catch Mrs. Beckham’s new ride being delivered by flatbed.
In case you’ve forgotten, the Continental GTC stickers at $189,990 in base form. It is powered by a 6.0 liter V-8 developing 552 hp at 6100 rpm and 479 lb. ft. of torque @1600 rpm, and drives a continuous all wheel drive system through a six speed automatic transmission. The suspension is fully independent air suspension with continuous monitoring and adjustment, which the driver can override if he or she so chooses.
Zero to 60 is quoted by Bently at 4.8 seconds.
It’s fortunate, however, that Ms. Spice was given the car by Mr. Cruise, as the savings on the purchase price will be needed when she pulls up to the gas pump.
According to Bentley, the GTC gets 10.8 miles per gallon in city driving. If she leaves town, though, she can save money. It gets 23.7 mpg on the highway.
