    i raced a bentley continental

    i was on my way home from work last night and stubbled upon a bently continental.he was cruisin so i got up next to him just to admire the car.next thing i know is hes accelerating away from me.so i speed up and see his brake lights come on.so here we are now running side by side.he gets on it and so do i.he started about a car length ahead of me and i finished about 3 cars back.which made me feel good.i believe these things are 12cyl.and $200,000.i pulled up to him at the light(we just got off the highway)i put my window down told him it was sweet and asked if hes was flooring it or was i just trying to keep up.he replied well i dont drive 130 on a regular basis. light turned green and we went our own ways.

    I see them everyday...

    The guy that owns the dunkin donuts down the street from my office has two of them, one in silver and one in blue. I was talking to him one day, because he pulled in right infront of me in his Porsche Carrera GT...then he went behind the counter and took my coffee order!

    Federal Hill in Providence RI is loaded with sick cars everyday, I'm going to race all of them =P

    my friends and i had one for an hour

    when we were done, it was making all sorts of hissing and ticking noises, and it smelled like burning

    aparantly, the car does not like repeated 0-145mph runs

    See quite a few of them. pretty daily here, but never even seen one going over the speed limit. The owners of them seem to drive very cautiously.
