Chicago Auto Show -Media Preview 2016

February 17, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I made a brief visit to the Chicago Auto Show Media Preview this past Friday and immediately noticed they had switched a lot of the car display locations. The Lexus, Cadillacs, Acuras, Alfa Romeos and a lot of the other high end cars had been switched with the other cars to the west end of the the Auto Show exhibits.  Looks like they were trying to change things up to keep it fresh for 2016.  This year I focused more on the concept cars along with other cars I did not photograph last year.  I found Perillos and Foley's car displays in the east end and immediately noticed the Blue 2016 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM DROPHEAD COUPE and Beige 2016 BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GTC.  

 

The Rolls boasts a 6.8-liter V-12 engine that develops 453-horsepower and an amazing 531 -lb, ft. of torque to the rear wheels.  It goes from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and has a top governed sped of 150-mph.  This luxury monster even has a hidden refrigerator and a set of monogrammed glasses beneath the teak floor of the picnic trunk.  MSRP $548,700

The Bentley is equipped with the same twin-turbo engine and luxury features as its coupe stable-mate, with the inclusion of open-top cruising.  It has a 626-horsepower V- 8 engine and a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which catapults it from 0-60 in just 4.7 seconds, with a top speed of 203-mph.  MSRP $288.005
