Because I'm a sucker for a pretty girl in a red dress or a fast car in a glossy red.

The 2012 Bentley Continental GT now offers up a twin-turbo V8 engine (which lives a less glamorous life in an Audi S8) a much more fuel efficient alternative to the W12. Still motivated enough to give up a sub-five-second quarter mile, the new girl is also 50 pounds skinnier. But it's not the weight that makes the 500 hp GT V8 more efficient, it's the fact that into an economy mode and shuts down four of its eight cylinders while cruising, putting its MPGs around 23 on the highway and at least 500 miles on a full tank.

 If you've got the dough to shell out for the $200,000 sport coupe, hit me up because I just want to take a ride in this girl and spin a few miles down the PCH in her.
