PostHeaderIcon McLaren 600LT Configurator Invites You To Have Fun

McLaren has launched the online configurator for the new 600LT supercar. Launched at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed back in July, the track-prepped Sports Series supercar brings back the Long Tail heritage for McLaren. The 600LT is lighter and more powerful than the 570S. It’s powered by the same twin-turbo, 3.8-liter, V-8 that’s used throughout the entire Sports Series lineup. The 600LT’s V-8 engine is tuned to produce 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, 30 horsepower and 14 pound-feet of torque more than the 570S. Now that the supercar’s online configurator is live, it’s time to go have some fun with it.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Ranger Configurator Exposes Pricing of $24,000 to $34,000

Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Ford Ranger is set to return to American dealerships after a very long absence. However, pricing and some important information remained a mystery. Now, the truck’s configurator showed up earlier than expected on Ford’s official website, revealing cab options and specific pricing. I say earlier than expected because Ford has taken the page down shortly after it made headlines.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M2 Competition Configurator Has Surprisingly Few Options

Unveiled in 2015, the BMW M2 became the spiritual successor to the 1M Coupe and gained notoriety for being a closer rendition to the original M3 than the modern M4. Come 2018 and BMW unveiled the M2 Competition, a more powerful version of the coupe.

While Competition-branded cars are usually upgrades to the regular M model, the M2 Competition is actually a replacement for the standard M2, which was discontinued. Upgrades inside and out are rather mild, but the Competition variant stands out for featuring the engine from the bigger M4 under the hood. Available to order starting this month, the M2 Competition can now be customized through the company’s online configurator. Let’s have a closer look at the options.

PostHeaderIcon Design the 600LT of Your Dreams in The New McLaren Configurator

The McLaren 600LT is yet another feather in the cap for the British automaker. As if it doesn’t have enough mouth-watering performance cars already, McLaren unveiled the 600LT with the purpose of filling out its entry-level Sports Series lineup with its own track-focused beauty. It looks the part of a super sports car, has the most power out of all McLaren Sports Series, and it’s configured for the thrills of the racetrack. Unfortunately, all that acclaim comes with the downside of us having little chance of owning one in our lifetimes. So what’s the best way to deal with that reality? Play around with the new McLaren 600LT online configurator, and imagine what our 600LTs could look like. It’s only in the virtual world, but like most things that we literally can’t get our hands on, we’ll take anything we can get.

PostHeaderIcon Polestar 1 Online Configurator – How We Spec’d It

The Polestar 1 is arguably one of the most highly anticipated cars in the business today. The performance coupe checks a lot of boxes on what you want out of the first offering from Volvo’s former performance division. Needless to say, the Polestar 1 has our attention. That much was clear when the coupe’s online configurator went live. We couldn’t wait to play around with it, and when we got the chance to do it, well, this happened.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Ford Mustang – How We’d Spec It

The 2019 Ford Mustang’s online configurator is like a candy store for fans of the muscle car. It comes with a wealth of customization choices that made the whole process of creating our own version an exercise in patience and perseverance. But I got my way through it, largely because the whole thing was fun and exciting. It didn’t feel like work as much as it felt like seeing my creation come to life, at least in the virtual world. Even better, the Mustang is actually affordable for regular folks like us, so who knows, someone here might end up going home with a real one.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW 8 Series Configurator – How We’d Spec It

The highly anticipated debut of the 2019 BMW 8 Series finally happened this week, and as has been the case recently, the luxury sedan’s online configurator quickly followed. Online configurators have been fun exercises for us. We get to create our own version of the new model and spec it right down to the most specific of details. Far too often, our creations end up differing from another, but that’s precisely the purpose of these configurators. You create what you want regardless of the opinions of other people. In the end, you live by your creation, and you show it off to the rest of the world. And so it is, our spec of the 2019 BMW 8 Series.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Volvo S60 Configurator: How We’d Spec It

The Volvo S60’s arrival is a huge deal in the premium sedan segment. The all-new model is touted as a legitimate threat to shake up the establishment, and from the looks of it, the S60 has the chops to make a lot of noise. But before we start saving up for the S60, we’re being given the opportunity to create the version of the sedan that best suits us, all thanks to the sedan’s online configurator. As expected, I went ahead and played around with it.

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 BMW X5’s Online Configurator is Going to Take Some Getting Used To

The BMW X5 has arrived and as expected with models of its status, so too has its online configurator. We’ve gotten adept at these online configurators to the point that it’s become common for us to start working on our own versions of the just-released model just so we have an excuse to play around with it. This time, I’m taking the controls of the BMW X5 online configurator to see what I can do to create the X5 of my dreams. You don’t have to like what I end up creating, but that’s the beauty of this exercise. If you don’t like what I did, you can go make your own.

PostHeaderIcon Spec your own Rolls-Royce Cullinan in the fanciest online configurator ever!

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan finally arrived in May 2018 after many years of teasers and speculation to take its place at the top of the SUV market as the most expensive and luxurious hauler ever created. Priced from a whopping $325,000, the Cullinan is probably selling like hotcakes for a really expensive vehicle. The SUV can now be configured on the company’s official website, and the online experience is just as bespoke as the Cullinan itself.

And even though most of us can’t afford one, we can at least configure the Cullinan of our dreams until we can actually place an order.

PostHeaderIcon How would you spec your Audi RS5?

It took Audi quite a few years to offer a competitor for the BMW 4 Series, previously known as the 3 Series Coupe, as the A5 made its debut back in 2007. The performance-spec RS5 took another three years to arrive in showrooms as a competitor for the BMW M4 and Mercedes-AMG C63. With a brand-new A5 launched in 2016, an updated RS5 was finally introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Now that the German coupe made its way to the United States, you can configure the RS5 of your dreams from the comfort of your home.

PostHeaderIcon The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options

There was a time when online configurators for new cars took a few days (or even weeks) to become available. That’s a thing of past now, especially when talking about sports cars. Performance vehicles from Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini don’t spend too much time in showrooms, and it’s exactly why customers are given the opportunity to customize their ride as soon as the first official details are out. It’s been just a few hours since the updated Porsche 911 GT3 RS was launched and you can already configure your dream model. Ready to have some fun?

Crazy Options for the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS


The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options - image 769871
“Porsche also offers an extended individualization option with "deviated stitching"”

Porsche offers a few interesting options for the GT3 RS. While it’s a bit annoying that you can’t have the green seatbelts with the black/green upholstery, you can have several features painted in a wide range of colors. For instance, you can have the climate control panel and air vents finished in one of 16 colors. Choices include bright hues like Guards Red, Lava Orange, Sapphire Blue, and Racing Yellow. You can also get Mahogany Metallic for a veneer-like look. Unfortunately, no Lizard Green on this list. But hey, you can have the steering wheel’s 12 o’clock mark painted in this color.

Porsche also offers an extended individualization option with “deviated stitching.” That’s just a different pattern for the thread on the seats and door panels, but the cool thing is that you can have it in one of 11 colors. Choices include cream, cognac, Bordeau Red, and Luxor Beige. Fancy! Finally, you can put a Bose surround sound system inside the cabin. Just in case you want to listen to the latest hits while in Nurburgring. I’m kidding; of course, I think that this option is pointless. But hey, maybe some customers like to play music while polishing their prized Porsches in the driveway.

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Performane Upgrades


The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options - image 770093

Should you choose to remove the A/C and add a fire extinguisher, make sure you also check out the upgrades that make the GT3 RS a better track car. You can get the Chrono Package with Lap Trigger, the Extended Range Fuel Tack for 23.8 gallons for gasoline, and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake package. The latter doesn’t come cheap though at a whopping $9,210. The Weissah Package, priced at $18,000, adds a ton of exposed carbon-fiber and lightweight anti-roll bars that save almost 12 pounds.

The 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Color Options


The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options - image 769881
“If you want the GT Silver Metallic or the light-gray Chalk options, you need to add an extra $4,220”

As it’s always the case, you need to pick an exterior color first. There are nine options available, four free base colors and five hues you have to pay for. Standard colors include black, white, Guards Red and Racing Yellow, so you get an either flashy or more sober exterior without paying extra. But if you want the GT Silver Metallic or the light-gray Chalk options, you need to add an extra $4,220. The same goes for the more exciting Lava Orange, Miami Blue, and Lizard Green hues. I don’t know about you but that Lizard Green is gorgeous.

Next up, you have to pick the wheels. Actually, there’s only one design available with five twin spokes, but you can choose between four finishes. There’s satin aluminum, a darker satin by Porsche Exclusive, satin black, or satin black with lip in Lizard Green. Oh, and the standard color is gold, which is sweet because it goes with just about any exterior paint.

Other exterior options include deletion of badges and model designation, LED headlamps in black, black door handles, and mirror caps and window triangle trim in carbon-fiber.

“You have access to a wide range of aluminum or carbon-fiber features”

Only three options are available here, but the really annoying thing is that two are in black only. Fortunately, you have the option to combine the black leather upholstery with Lizard Green inserts on the seats and door panels for $3,480. Speaking of the seats, you can pick between the standard adaptive sport seats or the full bucket seats. Go with the latter if you like long weekends at the race track. While the upholstery isn’t exactly exciting, you do get plenty of other options to choose from. Highlights include seat heating, floor mats, various features painted in custom colors, red or white dials and Sport Chrono clock. You also have access to a wide range of aluminum or carbon-fiber features.

How Expensive Can the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Get?


The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options - image 769954

The GT3 RS starts from $187,500, but go crazy with the options, and the sticker can jump beyond the $200,000 mark in a matter of seconds. I can’t afford one, but I went crazy with the options just to see how expensive it gets. Of course, I selected the Lizard Green exterior with matching wheels, the green interior with as many green details as possible, loads of carbon-fiber, and the fanciest upgrades available. Yes, I added the silly Bose sound system too, plus the Delivery Experience at one of the company’s centers. In total, I added $55,000 worth of options, taking the final sticker, including handling, to a whopping $243,600. Still more affordable than a Ferrari though.

PostHeaderIcon How We’d Spec It: 2019 Ram 1500

Ram has made a massive splash in the half-ton pickup segment with its all-new 2019 Ram 1500. It debuted at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show in January and is expected to arrive in showrooms by the end of the first quarter. That’s an impressively quick turn-around time as this processes normally takes six months to a year with most vehicles. Nevertheless, we’re restless to get our hands on the pickup.

In the meantime, we’re left dreaming of the ideal build configuration for an average American. Modern pickups offer literally thousands of possible cab, bed, engine, and trim combinations. Here, we’re shooting for that middle-class family who might tow a small boat to the lake on the weekends, haul sports equipment in the bed, and carry those 2.5 kids to their various extracurricular actives – all while staying within a reasonable budget.

Continue reading for more information.

The Configuration


How We'd Spec It: 2019 Ram 1500 - image 769590
“Crew Cab pickups are extremely popular these days and for good reason”

Crew Cab pickups are extremely popular these days and for good reason. They offer room for five to six people, have rear seats that fold away for storage of larger items, and still have a large enough cargo bed for most users. As such, we’d definitely opt for the Crew Cab for this build.

As for trim level, we’d opt for the Laramie. It lands slightly above average in the scale of trims, offering more standard equipment than the Big Horn but less than the Western-themed Laramie Longhorn and the range-topping Platinum. For those with a slightly more conservative budget, the Big Horn would still work nicely.

And speaking of price, this comparison will unfortunately not include MSRPs or package pricing. That’s because Ram hasn’t released the numbers as of this writing. Nevertheless, we can guesstimate the final price based on the outgoing 2018 model.

Exterior

“In addition to the Crew Cab configuration and five-foot, seven-inch cargo bed, we’d also opt for the incredibly handy RamBox system”

In addition to the Crew Cab configuration and five-foot, seven-inch cargo bed, we’d also opt for the incredibly handy RamBox system. The integrated storage boxes are watertight, lockable in conjunction with the doors, illuminated inside, and have a drain plug for evacuating water after they’ve been used as a cooler.

The Laramie trim comes standard with 18-inch aluminum wheels, which are just fine. On top of that, we’d pick Blue Streak Pearl as the paint color, just as something a bit more exciting than gray, black, or white.

Interior


How We'd Spec It: 2019 Ram 1500 - image 769602
“Ram has two big option packages for the Laramie: the Level 1 and Level 2 Equipment Groups.”

The Laramie trim level comes standard with leather seats with a front bench seat. This means there is room for six people, which for some families, is a necessity. For those who would rather have the extra storage space, Ram has the front bucket option. The integrated center console that accompanied the bucket seats has space for hanging file folders, cup and coin holders, and even an optional wireless phone charger.

Ram has two big option packages for the Laramie: the Level 1 and Level 2 Equipment Groups. Level 1 adds things like automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a remote tailgate release, and a CD Player.

Level 2 adds even more goodies like a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, heated second-row seats, a rear under-seat storage compartment, the wireless phone charger, and the lovely 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with navigation. Naturally, Level 2 also includes all the features in the Level 1 package.

Drivetrain


How We'd Spec It: 2019 Ram 1500 - image 769591
“The 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie will initially be available with only the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.”

The 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie will initially be available with only the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. That’s fine with us since the engine kicks out an impressive 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. Better still, customers can also get the Hemi with Ram’s new eTorque system, the mild-hybrid addition that helps with low-end power while offering an improvement in fuel economy.

The standard transmission is the new, next-generation TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic. Customers do have a choice between rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. Since most people never venture off the pavement, we’d stick with rear-wheel drive and save on fuel economy and the initial purchase price.

Ram offers three rear axle ratios: the standard 3.21, a 3.55, and a 3.92. We’d stick with the 3.21 since towing and drag racing aren’t on the agenda. This ratio will also greatly help with fuel economy. We would, however, spend the extra money on the Anti-Spin differential. This will help with all-weather traction. Last but not least, we’d opt for the 33-gallon fuel tank, which gives the Ram an impressive cruising range.

To save on cost, we’d skip the four-corner air suspension option.

Pricing


How We'd Spec It: 2019 Ram 1500 - image 769603

Like we mentioned, Ram has not announced pricing for the 2019 model. So, in order to get an understanding of how much out specific configuration might cost, we’re looking at the outgoing model from 2018.

Configured with the same cab, bed, and drive type, the 2018 model starts at $42,095. Upgrading from the 3.6-liter V-6 to the 5.7-liter V-8 costs $1,450, though that cost might be baked into the 2019 model since the 3.6-liter doesn’t appear to be available. The Anti-Spin Differential is a $435 upgrade, the up-sized fuel tank costs $405, the Convenience Group adds $545, and the RamBox another $1,295.

On the inside, the removing the front bench seats for the buckets costs $695, while getting navigation programmed on the 8.4-inch Uconnect system costs another $795. Ram charges $345 for the CD player – something that comes included in the 2019’s Level 1 Equipment package.

The total price comes to $49,955, including the options and Ram’s $1,395 destination fee. Now, according to Ram’s Build And Price website, there is $7,500 in discounts on the 2018 model, which brings the price back down to $42,455. Of course, we don’t expect to see such hefty discounts in the first few years of the new Ram’s lifecycle, so the final price will likely be higher. Add to that the inevitable increase in price Ram will charge for the new truck.

Conclusion


How We'd Spec It: 2019 Ram 1500 - image 769600

While not cheap by any means, this configuration offers the best of both worlds – swanky tech, leather seats, a powerful V-8, and tons of interior space while not cresting beyond the $50,000 mark.

What do you think of this build? What would you do differently? Let us know in the comments.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun!

Launched in December 2017, the Lamborghini Urus is as fresh as they get. And it’s quite impressive too. Not only the first SUV made by Lambo (the LM002 was a pickup truck) and the company’s first turbocharged production model, the Urus is also the world’s fastest crossover, boasting a top speed of 190 mph. Mind-boggling to say the least! It’s also pretty quick as well, needing only 3.6 seconds to hit 62 mph. That’s quickest than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S! Finally, it’s the most powerful production SUV, besting the Bentley Bentayga by a whopping 50 horsepower. But it’s also very expensive at $200,000, not counting the many options you can have. Speaking of which, Lamborghini just fired up the vehicle’s online configurator, so if you’re planning to place an order, you can choose your options in just a few minutes.

The configurator doesn’t give access to pricing, but it lists every single option available. This is actually something new, as previous configurators had scarce information and you had to go to a dealer to find out more. Now you can go beyond the usual exterior colors and interior upholstery and pick between various trims, carpets, contrast stitching, and a ton of technology and convenience features. It’s actually a nice way to spend a few minutes on this car even if you don’t have over $200K in your bank account.

Continue reading for the full story.

Exterior


Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun! - image 751850

As with any car configurator out there, you start off by selecting the exterior color. The offer isn’t as varied as you’d expect from Lamborghini, but you can pick between seven appealing colors. The palette includes Nero Helene, Blu Astraeus, Verde Hebe, Bianco Monocerus, Giallo Auge, Grigio Lynx, and Blue Eleos.

Interior

“As soon as you picked your favorite hue, you can go inside the cabin and select the color and trim”

As soon as you picked your favorite hue, you can go inside the cabin and select the color and trim. Things get a bit more complex here. First up, you have to pick between Unicolor, Sportivo, and Elegante leather. The main difference between them is that Sportivo is a two-one options, whereas the other two have just one color. Unicolor is black, while Elegante includes hues like brown, white, red, and cream. Alcantara interiors in Unicolor and Sportivo are also available. Once you selected the color you can choose what type of stitching you want, in either matching or contrasting colors. Lambo also offers a special trim option called Q-Citura with leather.

Next up are the floor mats, which come with leather piping and double stitching. The carpets match to the main hide, but you can get colored stitching for a striking contrast (especially if the upholstery is black). Moving over to the steering wheel, you can choose between sued leather and perforated leather. You can also have it in leather that matches the upholstery. Stitching options include matching it to the basic color or the contrasting color on the seats (for the Sportivo option).

“As for trim, you can choose between carbon-fiber and wood packages”

For seating options, there’s the fully electric, ventilated front seats with massage function and the option to get a two- or three-seat back row. The embroidered Lamborghini logos on the headrests are also optional. As for trim, you can choose between two carbon-fiber packages. There’s the small package with carbon on the door panels, center console, and passenger-side dash, and the big package with extra carbon for the center stack and around the instrument cluster. If you’re the classy type, you can have wood inserts instead. Options include piano black, open pore, and open pore with aluminum inlay.

Finally, you get down to the Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, a rear-seat entertainment system, an ambient light package, and off-road modes.

“The Urus is available with a ton of options, including both technology and convenience features”

The Urus is available with a ton of options, including both technology and convenience features. There are a head-up display and night vision for the instrument cluster, as well as driving assistance features like Highway Assistant, Full ADAS, and the Urban Road Assistant. The hands-free tailgate and the washing package will definitely make your life easier too. You can also get a TV tuner with Pay-TV, DAB tuner, heated rear seats, and steering wheel heating.

Other options include a garage door opener, a cargo management system, acoustic glass, top view camera, an electrical trailer hitch, sport side steps, roof box, cross bar transport system, and a load assist tray. Tire options include Pirelli P-Zero summer or Corsa rubber, a 21-inch spare wheel, winter tires, and snow chains. You can also extend the warranty by four or five years.

Unfortunately, the configurator doesn’t include pricing for each option so you can’t get a total at the end of your configuration process.

PostHeaderIcon The Rezvani Tank Can Get Crazy Expensive!

You probably remember the Rezvani Tank, the modified Jeep Wrangler Unlimited put together by this California-based company known for high-performance supercars. We brought news of the Tank back in early October, including its $178,000 starting price. Well, Rezvani has launched its online configurator for the tank, complete with outlandish options like three levels of bulletproofing and hand-stitched leather floor mats. Well, it turns out the Tank can get a whole lot more expensive than we originally thought.

The 2018 Rezvani Tank can cost upwards of $305,000!

That’s right – this Wrangler-turned-monster can cost more than a quarter-million dollars. So, what jacks the price up? Quite a bit, actually. Let’s tear down the build sheet and see what options Rezvani is offering. It’s actually pretty interesting. But for starters, remember this Wrangler has been fitted with a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 making near 500 horsepower and rides on upgraded axles with beefier suspension parts and 37-inch mud-terrain tires.

Continue for more information.

The Extensive Options List


The Rezvani Tank Can Get Crazy Expensive! - image 740209
“The biggest single upgrade comes next – the armor”

Rezvani starts with the outside, where it offers ten color choices at no extra charge. The wheels can be had in Brushed Aluminum, Dark Gray, and Black, with the latter two at a $500 premium. The biggest single upgrade comes next – the armor.
Opting for the B4 Hand Gun Protection package costs $45,000. For those who are worried about high-powered rifle fire, the B6 Assault Rifle Package costs $60,000. And for those wanted by some government agency or fear a terrorist group is out to get them, Rezvani has the B7 Armor Piercing Protection option, which protects against armor-piercing rounds. That option costs a whopping $97,000. Ouch!

Of course, seeing at night is important, so Rezvani will install at thermal Night Vision System for $5,500.

“There are two suspension choices: the Off-Road Suspension and the Off-Road Extreme Suspension”

There are two suspension choices: the Off-Road Suspension and the Off-Road Extreme Suspension. The first, for a mere $5,500 fee, brings a six-inch lift on top of Dynatrac ProRock axles. The front axle is built off the Dana 44 and the rear is off the Dana 60. Both have E-lockers and upgraded 1350 Driveshafts. Fox Racing 2.5-inch, remote reservoir shocks keep the axles from dancing, and 37×12.5-inch mud-terrain Tires finish the build.

The Off Road Extreme Suspension option brings Dynatrac ProRock XD60/80 axles front and rear, a set of air-actuated differential locks and an onboard air compressor, 1350 front and 1410 rear driveshafts, a brake upgrade kit for both axles, and Fox Racing 2.5-inch shocks with internal bypasses. This option still gives six inches of lift, but is more heavy-duty and includes 37×13.5-inch mud-terrain tires. The price for all this: $12,500.

“You can choose a full leather interior for $3,500 and pick one of three color options”

Inside, Rezvani continues to offer outlandish upgrades. You can choose a full leather interior for $3,500 and pick one of three color options. For $500, you can upgrade the stitching to a contrasting color. Even more outlandish, Rezvani will throw in a set of hand-stitched, leather floor mats for $650. Leather floor mats! A welcomed upgrade of the Wrangler’s dull and severely outdated Uconnect 47N with an iPad-like head unit from Alpine that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for $2,500.

Other ancillary add-ons include a weatherproof car cover for $750 and a battery trickle charger for $175.

Select all the most expensive options, and the final price comes to $305,075. That’s pretty darn expensive for a modified Jeep Wrangler – even if it has 500 horsepower, massive axles, and can withstand armor-piercing rounds from an assault rifle.

Rezvani Tank $178,000
B4 Hand Gun Protection $45,000
B6 Assault Rifle Protection $60,000
B7 Armor piercing rounds $97,000
Thermal Night Vision System $5,500
Off Road Suspension $5,500
Off Road Extreme Suspension $12,500
High Performance Brakes $3,500
Full Leather Interior $3,500
Colored Stitching $500
Leather with unique design and hand stitching $650
Premiium Sound – Alpine Apple CarPlay Unit $2,500
Weather Proof car cover $750
CTEK 4.3 $175

What do you think? Is Rezvani charging too much for its 2018 Tank or is the price just right? Let us know in the comments below.

PostHeaderIcon Configure the Bentley Continental GT of Your Dreams

After nearly seven years on the market, the second-generation Continental GT is getting ready to enter the history books and make way for a redesigned grand tourer. Built on a new platform and with a much lighter aluminum body, the third-gen Conti GT also brings new technology and a revised drivetrain into dealerships. And as it is the case with all new Bentley products, it features new technology and a large amount of new luxury items. There’s new wood veneer, new display, and a rotating infotainment screen, just a name a few, on top of the state-of-the-art interior design and the powerful W-12 engine.

The new grand tourer has yet to make a proper auto show debut, which is scheduled to take place at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, but Bentley has already launched an online configurator for the car. There aren’t any prices available and you can’t browse through all the Mulliner options, but it has what it takes to help you create your next Continental GT. And if you can’t afford one, it’s an entertaining way to play with all the color, upholstery, and equipment options you can get in one of the most luxurious vehicles available as of 2017. Check it out below.
