Bently-One For Leno ?

Take a look see at this, looks like the factory made it.

"This is a car with a little extra va-va voom - but you'll need a pretty big wallet to keep it running.

A stunning Bentley went on sale today - but this is a car that will certainly have heads turning.
The classic car it has been fitted with a 27-litre Spitfire engine."

My God, what an automobile! What I wish is that I could buy a ticket for a ride. I mean I bought a ticket to fly in a B-17, why not that?

My neighbors shake their heads now - I suspect hearing that exhaust sound 'burbling' down the street would send them immediately to the phones for reinforcements.

Love it

(I wonder if acceleration traction under anything more then a throttle tickle just might be a problem)

I was worried they were going to call the fire department on me last weekend for the smoke pouring out of my basement.

Yes I imagine traction could be an issue, but it also raises another issue. Does it have brakes or just a parachute for the driver to bailout with.
