    Intercontinental...that'd be hilarious. I love this

    The vehicle will be capable of running on biofuel, which the company says represents “stage one of Bentley’s environmental commitment.”

    I do not think Bentley will be using the Veyron chassis for this car.
    Exactly.

    Bentley will launch what it calls its “fastest, most powerful production car ever” at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The U.K.-based luxury carmaker hasn’t released much information on the new model, but a single photo of the front end indicates the car is definitely Continental-based.

    The car will deliver “supercar performance,” according to Bentley. “This new model is very much the extreme Bentley,” reads a statement to the press. The vehicle will be capable of running on biofuel, which the company says represents “stage one of Bentley’s environmental commitment.
    Can anyone else see the irony here?

    Same position as aircraft manufacturers take.

    The A380 battles environmental pollution too

    Being slightly better than the excesses of before is now something manufacturers have reslised fools will think as "good news".

    Not that Bentley should be caring about the environment at all...

    my goodness. the dry, blunt, truth I LOVE IT.

    simply was on everyone's mind (pretty much) but just nobody has said it yet (either out of lack of articulation, or trying to be "polite", "apathetic", and/or "moderate)

    for some reason people think it sells. I assume it must affect some buyers (although doubtful that it affect bentley buyers) or they wouldn't waste their money advertising it.

    i dunno about you guys but eco friendliness has never made or broken a purchase of mine and I feel like in most things i am an average consumer.
    A woman goes to the doctor to figure out why she is having breathing problems...The doctor tells her she is overweight. She says she wants a second opinion...the doctor says, "your ugly".

    Eco products may not sell in your country, but they do elsewhere.

    There's your problem.
    Little wonder the world's in the sh!t.

    PS It's not personal, just an observation on the far, far end of consumerism...
