This isn't a production Bentley. Far from it. This vehicle was created by Italian coachbuilders, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, and it's a shooting brake take on the 2010 Bentley Continental GTC, the convertible model. It came about because a rich Belgian (apparently they do exist) wanted to carry around passengers in style, as well as a large amount of whatever the Belgian word is for "stuff." Touring took a GTC, added a carbon-fiber hatchback, kitted the car out with high-end, um, kit (love those wire-effect wheels), and called it the Flying Star Shooting Brake. Then presented its client with an invoice for $780,000. Bentley has already said it would do all the servicing and honor the factory warranty, and the car is being uprated to Speed spec: 602 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The Milanese craftsmen are now inspired, and think they might make another 19.
Does it drive as good as it looks? Yes it does! #superstreet #drivingisbelieving #bmwi8 #azusacanyon
