…The Bentley Continental Supersports is green?

Bentley Continental Supersports

The Bentley Continental Supersports might not look very green, but as the company’s first FlexFuel vehicle, it is. (Kinda.)

Bentley Continental Supersports Detail

The ‘Extreme Bentley’ is also the fastest and most powerful car to wear a flying B on the hood, with a 621 hp E85-compatible W12 propelling the car to 60 in just 3.7 seconds, and giving it a top speed of 204 mph.

In addition, the car receives carbon ceramic brakes, 24 lbs of weight reduction, a dark-smoked steel finish on all ‘brightware’ (front grilles, lamp bezels, window surrounds and wheels) and plenty of carbon fiber to go around, both inside and out.

It’s definitely not your father’s Bentley, but in this case, that’s definitely not a bad thing.

…Hummer’s HX looks like a winner?

Hummer HX

The Hummer HX concept is one truck that I would love to see make it to the showroom floor without getting smoothed over by the penny pinchers at GM.

Designed to be a Jeep Wrangler competitor, the HX features a 3.6-liter SIDI E85 FlexFuel engine, four wheel drive, a six-speed automatic transmission, and a modular roof that can be opened convertible style.

Considering the fact that the styling isn’t too far off when compared to the current H2 and H3, I can only hope that this is a nearly-there preview of the H4 to come.
