Larry Kosilla, founder of Ammo NYC, takes a paint gauge to two cars in their detailing shop in this video covering his detailing of a Jesko in preparation for a show. The first, a Porsche, registers just under 5.0 mils (1/1000th of an inch) of paint. The next, a Rolls-Royce checks in at 7.3 mils. This Jesko? Its paint is more than 30 mils thick.
“The paint is the thickest and most robust of any production vehicle on the market today,” said Kosilla, “I’ve polished a lot of cars, and this one in particular is very resilient. You can just feel how heavy it is.”
Kosilla says it has 20 coats of base, one coat of pearl (which makes up the most of what you see), then one of champagne (for the fleck). Then, on the dark panels, it has a coat each of grey, blue and green. The color is then covered in nine layers of clear coat. Just wow.
As Bentley celebrates its centenary history, the British automaker looks toward the future featuring a showcase of their EXP 100 GT concept on their new augmented reality app. Named “Bentley 100 AR”, the app allows users to get behind the wheel themselves. At Bentley Beverly Hills, users will be able to view a full-scale virtual model of the car, with commentary from the design team.
Powered by four electric motors that produce 1,106 pound-feet of torque the EXP 100 GT can do zero to 60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. Step inside and have the biometric sensors determine the best seating positions for yourself and recognize discomfort of your occupants by tracking blood pressure and eye movement. Welcome to the future of Bentley.
The “Longtail” moniker was born more than two decades ago. It was conceived with a simple idea: create the purest version of a championship winning car. The McLaren F1 GTR “Longtail” was an evolution of the only car to ever win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its first attempt. Add power while significantly reducing weight. Increase aerodynamic efficiency. Improve braking performance, shift speeds, mechanical grip. These engineering principles developed 20 years ago stay true to the current McLaren Longtail offering – the 600LT.
