Bentley, Lexus and Tesla Motors have turned up the heat in 2017

Carmakers are pushing new limits in every arena.


    In the time you take to read this sentence aloud, the Continental Supersports has hit 100kmh. And that’s if you’re fast about it. British carmaker Bentley topped its own Flying Spur – and the rest of the world’s four-seater sports cars, apparently – with a twin turbocharged W12 petrol-powered beast that does 0 – 100 in 3.5 seconds. For those who like wind in their hair, there’s a convertible option that manages it in 3.9 seconds. To rein in that raw power, Bentley installed the largest carbon ceramic brake rotors in the car industry to match. The exterior’s been refreshed as well: Lithe yet chiselled features set on muscular haunches bring to mind a jaguar (the animal, not marque). It does, however, retain the unmistakable front grille design. Wearnes Automotive, 45 Leng Kee Road. Tel: 6378-2628
