The Bentley Continental R released in 1991 was the first machine from Bentley to not share a body with a Rolls Royce since the ’65 Series III Continental and it was comically expensive. The gargantuan 2-door sedan sold for something in the range of $272,000 in 1991, which is $519,500 in today’s money. It has now depreciated over $500k in today’s money, so it has likely cost the various owners $500k in depreciation, $80k in maintenance (wag), and $19k in gasoline (85k miles at 10 mpg, $2.25/gal). That adds up to $7 per mile over the last 30 years. Or, more than 3x the cost of uber ($2/mile) and still MORE than double the cost of NYC taxi ($3.50/mile). Only London (£8/mile) has more expensive cab fees than driving a Bentley Continental R. Find this 1993 Bentley Continental R offered for $19,000 in Heber Springs, AR via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

For awhile, it seemed that Morgan’s position on the modernity spectrum could only go one way: the wrong way. Then they unveiled the brazenly steampunk 3-Wheeler. Lauded for its stalwart mechanical charm, it unfortunately cost about as much as a Caterham with options. But at 1/4 of the price, this well-built replica is ready for […]
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word “classic” as: serving as a standard of excellence : of recognized value, traditional, enduring. The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider is a classic in every sense of the word. The convertible (spider) design by Pininfarina was launched in 1958 and is just as pretty today as the day it was relased. […]
Today’s next feature was under the DT radar a few months back, but for whatever reason (probably a batch of freshly El Camino-ized something-or-others arrives on craigslist) we didn’t post it. Naturally, the car was panegyrically written up on bringatrailer.com in February of this year to much acclaim, accolades, back slapping and joyous trumpets playing […]
