By rgrubbs | Posted in Bentley on Wednesday, January 9th, 2019 at 1:05 AM

 

With the new Bentley Continental GT on the way later this year, we at O’Gara La Jolla were given the opportunity to showcase the grand tourer to our clients. Most dealers would simply stage the cars in the showroom and do short drives in the surrounding area. We wanted to do something special and decided to aim a little higher. A few hundred feet higher. The Fly and Drive was born.

Optimal Car Maintenance Schedule for Your Exotic Vehicle

car maintenance schedule

For the profane, it would appear evident that the more expensive the car, the less maintenance it requires. Luxury brands, after all, are praised for the incredible engineering that goes into designing a supercar, and unsurpassed quality in every detail. Except that the complexity of engines and parts, the high-tech components that set those cars apart, not to mention the thrill-drives they are put through, make them not just expensive, but precious. Which is exactly why owners of Rolls Royce, McLaren, or Lamborghini automobiles know the importance of maintaining a strict checkup schedule, even more so than for an everyday sedan.

Differences Between a Lamborghini Performante and Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini Performante

From 2014 – 2018, the only two Lamborghini models in production were the Hurácan and Aventador. Until the addition of the Urus SUV in 2018, these two cars were the sole heirs to the Lamborghini dynasty. Today, they still remain the only supercars in production by the manufacturer. Due to their shared heritage in sports car excellence, the vehicles’ stylings are similar and can be difficult to tell apart by the untrained eye – specifically the Hurácan’s Performante edition. Here’s how you can impress your friends and identify a Lamborghini Performante or Aventador when you go car spotting.

More Than just a Sports Car – the McLaren 570S

McLaren 570s

3.1 seconds…

Tick

Tick

Tick

T..

Any car that goes from 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds belongs to a special class entirely.

What if we told you that such car can also stop from 62mph in just 105 feet? (basically, 3.3 seconds and 100 feet later, you’re back to a complete stop).

While reminiscent of primary school math problems, these facts are not arcane to sports car enthusiasts. Those in the know – all our readers, we reckon – have recognized some specs of the McLaren 570S.

What’s in a name really? Would you expect 570S to elicit much of a response? You would and you should. With or without the brand name, it’s already become a classic, packing no less than 562 horsepower (570 metric horsepower, hence the name), designed according to McLaren’s highest principles of engineering and performance.

McLaren 720s

With the 720s, McLaren has created a super sports car, aggressively-styled, and highly-focused on improved drivability. It’s sleek, balanced, powerful. Needless to say, you don’t want to confine that gem to congested freeways and boring straight streets. Of course, if you want to show off a little – who would blame you for being the proud owner of a light yet powerful vehicle – you can slowly go up and down Rodeo Drive.

But our guess is you’d much prefer experience all this exotic car has to offer on an exhilarating drive.
