Now that is what you call a celebrity ride. We’re talking about a tidal wave of luxury torque that hides a monster under the hood. The 2014 Bentley Flying Spur has a twin-turbo W12 6-liter engine that develops 660 horsepower and a peak torque of 590 lb-ft (799 Nm). When you ride in it, its grudge is the only thing you get to hear before you reach the 62 mph (100 km/h) mark, which is 4,2 seconds.

It’s a white rocket ship that Bentley’s engineers compare with cars like the Mercedes S-Class , while others think it competes with the Rolls-Royce Ghost itself. Having an 8-speed transmission, it is what you call a car made for the opulent lifestyle, while still keeping things classy.

Well, looking at the sportsman’s career it’s not such a big surprise he’ll be driving a car worth more than $200,000 (EUR 146,500). The 35-year old American baseball player has a 359 home runs record that speaks for itself.

Being a Bentley, it doesn’t really matter whether you are the one driving or you are on the passenger seat. Actually, considering you can fit two champagne bottles in the rear-fridge, staying in the back doesn’t really sound like such a bad idea.
