Bentley Bethesda – Mulsanne Preview

We at Up-Shift.net have always said that our focus is not Lambos or Ferraris.  However, we have to be honest.  Who doesnt like looking at $100,000+ cars.  Theres just something about the quality and performance that demands respect and commands our attention.

Yesterday I had the privilage of being invited to preview the 2010 Bentley Mulsanne, Bentley’s new Flagship Sedan, by Kimatni Rawlins of http://www.automotiverhythms.com/.  I definitly enjoyed having the opportunity to learn about the craftsmanship behind this $285,000 car and truth be told, its worth every penny.  Hand crafted by just 98 people the car takes 9 months to produce.  Im told that one person can take up to 15 hours just to create the steering wheel alone.  Enjoy some of the pictures from the event.

College Park Tuning 2010

I had some free time on my hands this last weekend and decided to hit up the first tuner car meet that I have been to in a few years.  I had forgotten how much I missed hearing turbos on cars that didnt come with them stock.  Or seeing body kits and aftermarket wheels.

The tuner car sceen has changed alot in the lats 10 years and it seems that for once, no one is hopping on the latest fad or fashion and has decided to follow function verses form.  There are still a few gorups out there who are taking the function to the extreme but the majority of people seem to get the idea of “balance”, and it shows in the tuning.

The weather was really hot this last sunday and so were the cars.  Check out pics of our drive down, the show, and the ride back home.
