In 1952, a car that could reach a top speed of 120 mph was unheard of until Bentley released its iconic R Type Continental. The four-seater is known as the world’s first Grand Tourer, and only 208 cars were produced, making them the car of the season.
50 years later, this grand dame of the road inspired Bentley’s designers to girt the world the first Continental GT.
The Continental GT echoes the elegance of its R Type predecessor with the three Continental styling cues. First, the seamless curve of the striking power line and second the muscular haunches that indicate the brute force concealed within the updated version of Bentley’s prestigious heritage, built by coachbuilders H.J. Mulliner. The third element is the Continental’s famous swooping, fast roof line.
Almost doubling the performance of its first version, the Continental GT reaches a top speed of 206mph with its W12 power engine to give the world a technological marvel that is the Bentley Continental GT.

‘Striking’ and ‘Seductive’ were the two words used to describe the new Rolls-Royce Dawn by Torstein Mueller-Outdoes, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Hailed as the sexiest Rolls-Royce ever built, Dawn is seen to be setting a new benchmark in open-top, super-luxury motoring for those who wish to bathe in the sunlight in class and style.
Contrary to media speculation, the new Rolls-Royce Dawn is not a Wraith drophead. 80% of the exterior body panels of the new Dawn are newly designed to accommodate an evolution of Rolls-Royce’s design language and to encapsulate highly contemporary, four-seat super-luxury drophead architecture. The aim was clear. To do what no other car manufacturer had achieved so far – make a car that looks as beautiful with its roof up as with it down and the roof had to be graceful, beautiful and sensuous whilst remaining one of the largest canopies to grace a convertible car. One could almost say that the result of the design team’s restless endeavours has been to make the new Rolls-Royce Dawn two cars in one. Deliveries on the new Rolls-Royce Dawn commence in the second quarter of 2016.

The 2016 Mercedes – Maybach Pullman S600 having staged its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show recently has notched that class of distinction and pure luxury above all else.
This exclusive new limousine is a four door, six seat model complete with a middle row of rear facing seats. Its significance and greatness of its every detail can be sensed at first glance. More than 20 feet long and 5 feet tall, the Pullman offers backseat passengers the most legroom in the class and more headroom than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan.
