And now Bentley can proudly stake claim not just on the roads, but also as a piece of the sky! The 2013 version of the stunning car comes with a twelve-cylinder engine that is 55 pounds lighter which gives the vehicle 40-percent better fuel economy. The car can go from 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds. To show off its power, Bentley flew its new Continental GT V8 over Munich through a special SkyLounge which was placed in a glazed bridge between two skyscrapers.
