Photos & Video of Bentley Continental GT Burning to the Ground

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is yet another Bentley Continental GT in flames. Unilke last time, the fire was mostly the owner's fault and partly the fault of the illegal street racers that he ran into (we don't think the Bentley was connected to the street race.) Witnesses reported (and video shows) that he was heading from the airport to Minsk, Belarus at an extreme rate of speed when he crashed into a VW and then 3 other vehicles in the middle of the street for a drag race. You can see a large group of people scattering from the middle of the street right after the crash. The driver escaped before the Bentley caught fire.

Photos of 6 Exotic Cars Going Up In Flames

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is not one wreck but 6! A car carrier in Bangkok, Thailand was transporting a Ferrari, Lamborghini, 2 Bentleys, Mercedes and a BMW. One of the exotics caught fire while on the transporter (we're guessing the Lamborghini because they seem to spontaneously combust fairly frequently.) The fire spread to other cars while the truck was moving!


Thanks as always the the guys at WreckedExotics.com for our weekly dose of automotive mayhem!

You Don't See This Every Day-Bentley vs Panamera

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a PAIR of wundercars bashed into each other―a likely sign of the apocalypse. How often do you see a Bentley Continental & a Porsche Panamera in the same month? How about on the same day? How about tailgating each other on the freeway. D'oh!

Bentley Continental GTC First "Ding"

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day returns to the good ol' USA today where this once beautiful Bentley Continental GTC (base price $191,400.00) had a "parking mishap." Don't you hate it when you get that first "ding?" In this case, the Bentley driver dinged the parked BMW behind it and several other cars in New York City.

2010 Bentley Continental GTC Totaled

The car was a Bentley Continental GTC Convertible with a "base" price of $205K USD. The story is that a young man on a mountain road converted it into a very expensive piece of twisted junk. Thanks to our buddies at WreckedExotics.com for finding it.



Here's what one looks like without the mountainside modifications.

Sanity-Impaired? New Ice Speed Record

Bentley Supersport Ice Speed Record Edition
Here's something that would have never crossed our minds.

Autoblog is reporting Bentley's celebration of an impressive but, let's be honest, completely insane achievement with a new special edition Continental Supersport called the "Ice Speed Record" Convertible.

Who would have imagined that there are actually people trying to set records for who can go the fastest in an automobile on a frozen lake or, in this case, the Baltic Sea? Finnish ice racer (and rally star) Juha Kankkunen has just set the new record of 205.48 miles per hour (330.695 km/h) in a Bentley Continental Supersport Convertible. When I think of ice speed records, I always imagine doing it in a convertible. . . Actually, I suppose it does make some sense. You could get out of the car more quickly when the ice breaks and you plunge into the freezing water in a quickly sinking vehicle (see our article on how to escape sinking cars.)

What makes this achievement all the more incredible (or ridiculous) is that Juha was beating his own record set in another Bentley Continental in 2007 at 199.83 mph (321.6 km/h.)

Probably not a sport we'll take up any time soon. We're too busy curling.

None-the-less, congrats to Juha and Bentley. We hope this record stands for a very long time.

Bentley Driven Off Cliff in Hollywood

From our buddies at WreckedExotics.com, this new Bentley Continental was stolen near Hollywood and intentionally crashed off a cliff on Mulholland Drive. The crash happened at about the same spot where 3 other cars have been thrown off the cliff according to ABC News. These included two of Charlie Sheen's Mercedes Benzes, a 2010 S600, and an 2010 S500.

Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid the Star of Geneva Auto Show

From Edmunds.com (our favorite site for real world auto pricing), here's the scope on the awesome Porsche 918 Hybrid! Edmunds says it upstaged Lamborghini, Bugatti and Bentley at the premier automotive show in the world. And it may possibly be the fastest production car around Germany's famed racetrack, the N├╝rburgring—assuming it gets produced. We hope so.
