The Bentley Continental Flying Spur was always hampered by one thing – no, I'm not talking about VW Phaeton’s platform, because that was excellent and gave the driver huge confidence. The thing that hampered the car was the fact it was called Continental, meaning it shared a lot in common with its (cheaper) two-door sibling the Continental GT – it was a version of that model with two extra doors. Now, though, the new model has gained a more distinct body and a new name - the Flying Spur full stop. MotorTrend magazine flew all the way to China to find out what the new Flying Spur is all about. Enjoy.

It isn’t too often that we see a luxury automaker produce accessories to further accentuate the exteriors of their instantly recognizable and already well-admired cars. Naturally, when Mercedes-Benz chose to produce such an accessory for their cars, they wanted to refrain from adding something that could be seen as garish and keep it decidedly simple. The Illuminated Star is none other than just that, a simple LED-infused Mercedes-Benz logo that illuminates the radiator grille of the vehicle. The star can currently be outfitted on the GL-Class MY13+, M-Class MY12+, E-Class MY14+ or CLS MY06+ models, but the carmaker hopes to extend availability to other models in the near future.

Dissatisfied with the V8 Vantage, or its bigger brother with the V12 engine? Then meet Aston Martin‘s newest monster – the V12 Vantage S. While the name to most would normally denote fancier interior trim and a lightened body, the British masterpiece manufacturer have disregarded rival companies’ traditions and decked out this new release with a revised 6.0-liter V12 engine now outputting 565 horsepower, a new seven-speed “hydraulically actuated automated manual transmission” with race-spec software, and enhanced three-stage adaptive damping in its suspension. More noteworthy however is the improved top speed that now pushes this sports coupé past the 200mph milestone, a feat accomplished by only one other car in the Aston Martin family – the seven-figured special edition super car One-77. With a projected price tag of around $200,000 USD and a release in early 2014, this once touted “Baby Aston” seems to have grown up into a bona fide brute.

Touted as the “highest performing street-legal electric vehicle ever made,” the Mission RS Motorcycle aims to attract a field of riders who not only desire top performance but also a totally sustainable machine. This revolutionary two-wheeler is designed to match the aesthetics of Mission’s e-power bike that blew its competition out of the water at 2011’s FIM/TTXGP e-power race at Laguna Seca in California. The RS is powered by the company’s InfiniteDrive powertrain that delivers over 160hp, a sub 3-second 0-60 time, a top speed of 150 mph, and a range of 140 miles. Further enhancements include Ohlins FGRT forks, BST carbon fiber wheels, and a 7-inch, internet-connected touchscreen that offers turn-by-turn directions, an integrated HD camera with telemetry overlay, wireless HUD integration, and much more. With only 40 available, the Mission RS Motorcycle comes with a very appropriate price tag of $56,500 USD, especially when one considers it is both eco-friendly and technologically intelligent.
