Bentley Bentayga Downtown in Rainey ‘Hood

Written by Ken Altes

First sighting of this $225k++ SUV. Gets good reviews, powered by a W12 making 600 hp and 664 lb·ft of torque and will toss the Bentayga from 0-6o mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds, slamming this 5300 lb. luxo-barge to 186 mph. Appropriately, the name, Bentayga,  means “carried interest” in Swahili. 

Family Car: Ferrari FF at Petrol Lounge in N. Austin

Written by Ken Altes

Another extraordinary car stored/coddled at Austin’s own Petrol Lounge. I am sometimes asked which is my favorite car: This is the car I would most want for everyday use.

To keep your family safe and happy, Ferrari kindly created the Ferrari FF in 2011:

  • four wheel drive (first for Ferrari)
  • folding rear seats give 28 cu. ft. of storage space
  • 6.3 liter V-12 turns out 651 hp @ 8000 rpm
  • 7-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic paddle shift transmission
  • 117.7 inch wheelbase, 4150 lbs.
  • top speed (in case of emergency): 208 mph
