Bentley GT Supersports by Anderson GermanyAnderson Germany is introducing a modification kit for the Bentley Continental Supersports (we’ll remind you that Bentley has unveiled the 2011 Continental GT at the Paris Auto Show). The tuning package brings engine, exterior and interior tweaks.

Porsche Carrera GTSPorsche have just broken cover with their new Carrera GTS set to be unveiled officially at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Essentially, the Carrera GTS is a wide-bodied version of the standard Carrera S as expected. It features an increase in power and the new aerodynamic kit to position it between the Porsche Carrera S and the Porsche GT3.
If the body work looks familiar, that’s because it’s cribbed from the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 – a trick Porsche has pulled off several times in the past. Nestled between that 1.73 inches wider track is an upgraded 3.8-liter flat-six putting out 408 horsepower, 23 more than the standard S, 27 less than the GT3, and 310 pound-feet of torque now peaking at 4,200 rpm. Power is sent exclusively to the rear wheels (and as it should be), with a manual six-speed transmission coming standard and a seven-speed PDK as an option.

Labourdette often experimented with aerodynamics, and decided to develop a swooping open body for the chassis at a cost of $44,000, at a time when the average price of a home was about $4,000.
The 400 SuperAmerica was powered by a 4.0-liter Gioachino designed V12 engine that delivered 340 hp at 7000 rpm. The engine was coupled to a 4-speed, all synchromesh gearbox, fitted with an electronic overdrive unit on top gear, driving through a universally jointed propeller shaft to a rigid rear axle.
