Lotus Exige Sprint 2008



Pictures from France this time with this Lotus Exige from 2008. This is the Exige Sprint edition. What was specific about this edition? The livery mainly as the two-tone paint aims at recreating the colour scheme of the Elan Sprint built between 1971 and 1973. It also gets a heritage pack with a certificate signed by Lotus boss Mike Kimberley, as well as 'The Lotus Book' by William Taylor covering all the models produced at Hethel. There are also some extras like lightweight forged alloys as standard, air-con, a Sport Pack, a Touring Pack and the Performance Pack. That means the 1.8 4-cylinder engine reached 243bhp, with a 0-60mph in four seconds and a top speed of 146mph or 235km/h.
It seems to be quite a rare car as only 40 have apparently been built!

Bentley Continental GT 2019



As much as I love Aston Martins, I must admit the new Continental GT is an absolute masterpiece! I particularly like the front end of the car. Under the bonnet you will still find the brand new 6.0 twin-turbocharged W12 engine which produces 626bhp. 0-62 takes 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 207mph or 333km/h.
