Garage List
Bentley Continental and C63 AMG

Coming home from Wildwood, NJ last night at around 9:30 on the garden state parkway I had lots of fun driving with firstly the Bentley and we did a couple sprints side to side, I followed him, he followed me, overall lots of fun at higher speeds (illegal).

Anyway the guy was an older gentleman with his wife and I though that his wife was either pretty lenient on his driving or he was just not listening to her

Later on I met up a C63, beautiful white one (cross shopped one, so I appreciated it that much more) and he was relaxed and we did several miles of cruising. A standard Camaro also joined us in the left lane.

Anywhooo. I was really impressed with their manners and driving styles, no teenager bull, no reckless maneuvers, just plain old fun!

I\'m pretty sure the Continental isn\'t as fast as our cars right? And will the extra horsepower and torque of the C63 outpace the M3? All settings on sport of course + DCT.

Depends on which Bentley Continental and which C63.

Not really sure, what are the differences between the GT and Supersport? It was probably a flying spur though.

And it wasn't a black edition C63.

There was this older Mitsubishi eclipse however that was really grimy, got in front of me and tried to basically break check me. Long story short, I just left.

That's good. It's best not to let emotions get the better of you because bad things happen when people get blindingly mad in high horsepower cars.

Yes... base C63 will be faster... C63 with performance package will be even moreso. The C63 with performance package (481hp) trapped 120mph in the quarter mile and did 0-100mph in 8.6s. The M3 is not built to win drag races and many cars are faster... it is built for balancing speed, handling, etc.

This. ///M cars were never about winning in a straight line.
