David Beckham. Bentley. Need I say more?
David Beckham is known around the world for his soccer talents and marriage to former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, but he also has an apparently profound passion for Bentleys. Can we blame him? The luxurious cars are not only amazingly beautiful to look at, but as David can surely attest to, they are a true delight to drive.
United Kingdom native Beckham recently sold his 2002 Bentley Arnage T and now he’s been seen driving around his current hometown of Los Angeles in a brand new luxurious Bentley Continental Supersports. While Beckham went through a ‘black car’ phase, he’s now opted for a lighter shade of quartzite hue for his elegant mode of transportation.
The Beckham family owns multiple luxurious cars, including a Range Rover, a Cadillac Escalade, a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, two Porsche 911s, and a Jeep Wrangler—although none of their children are of legal driving age yet, but hey, you have to have options, right?
But back to that new Bentley Beckham is sporting. It’s only the 17th of its kind to be delivered in the United States, and 47th worldwide, and it’s priced at $266,600. The Bentley Continental Supersports is a lighter version of the standard Continental GT Speed, reduced in weight by approximately 202 pounds with 620bhp, up from the standard version’s 20bhp. What’s that mean? Well, that means that Beckham can take the beauty from 0 to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds and is able to reach a top speed of 204mph. More eco-friendly celebs can also shift the car into a bio-fuel mode, so the environment is less severely impacted.
