The Design of Speed

English luxury car maker Bentley has always been about performance with stately grace. For 1999, they produced a special version of their two-door coupe, and gave it a lift out glass sunroof along with a more powerful version of the turbocharged 6.7 liter V8: 420 horsepower and 650 foot-pounds of torque. The car is capable of topping 170 mph.

While the design of such a car doesn't immediately suggest speed, there's no question that the enhanced wheel arches, flared fenders and lower body molding give the car a muscular appearance. Bentley only made 73 examples of the Sedanca Coupe, which was based on the shorter wheelbase Continental T model.
