Bentley customers usually go for somber colors, like black or silver, but the owner of a Continental GT decided to go for red.

Presented by Strasse, it is equipped with one of their high-end wheel sets, dubbed the SV1 Deep Concave FS. They measure 10×22-inch on the front axle and 11.5×22-inch on the rear, feature a 10-spoke design and sport a glossy black and red finish.

The wheels can be fitted to a different number of cars, and Strasse has already equipped the McLaren 650S and 720S, Audi R8 V10 Spyder and Lamborghini Huracan. They are available in different diameters and widths, from 18 to 24 inches and from 4.5 to 13+ inches respectively, and can be ordered in different color combos. Pricing starts at $7,500 for a complete set, not counting the tires, of course.

Save for the vibrant color and the two-tone aftermarket wheels with custom center caps, this Continental GT is stock. Thus, its twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 produces 626 HP (635 PS / 467 kW) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque, and is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic from ZF and all-wheel drive. All this is enough to propel it from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and on to a 207 mph (333 km/h) top speed.

Customers can also get the Continental GT with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, which kicks out 542 HP (550 PS / 404 kW) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm). It is 0.3 seconds slower to 60 mph (96 km/h) than its W12-powered sibling, and will top out at 198 mph (319 km/h).

Key sales details for some of America’s most popular muscle cars are in and they don’t paint a pretty picture for the Chevrolet Camaro.

Last year, Chevrolet sold a total of 29,775 Camaros, a 38.3 per cent drop from 2019. Of course, with the ongoing pandemic impacting the industry, it’s not much of a surprise that sales have slipped, but such a significant decline doesn’t make for easy reading, especially not for General Motors executives. In fact it’s quite disheartening when compared with sales of the Dodge Challenger.

In 2020, Dodge managed to sell 52,955 examples of the Challenger. That’s a great number considering the third-generation Challenger has been on sale since 2008, although it is still 13 per cent down from sales in 2019. Interestingly, Motor1 notes that Challenger sales rose by 2 per cent in the fourth quarter compared to Q4 2019, while final quarter sales of the Chevrolet Camaro dropped by 34 per cent.

Ford hasn’t yet announced sales details for the Mustang but it had sold 47,637 examples as of October 2020, a 14 per cent drop from the year prior. In all likelihood, it will have eclipsed the 52,955 Challenger sales and reign supreme over the muscle car market.

Details about the future of the current-generation Camaro remain unconfirmed, but some rumors suggest it could stick around until 2026. If that’s the case, Chevy will have to find a way (maybe with some special editions) to drum up consumer interest in the car.

As autonomous driving technology becomes more prevalent, the distinctions between various systems are increasingly important.

SAE International has been a driving force behind this as their definitions for automation were first released in 2014. They’ve been updated since then, and now range from relatively ‘dumb’ cars at Level 0 to fully autonomous Level 5 vehicles that can “drive everywhere in all conditions.”

However, some companies use generic terms such as “self-driving.” Tesla is the most obvious example and they even admit “currently enabled features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous.”

Safety groups have called for changes and now Waymo has announced they’ll stop referring to their vehicles as “self-driving.” Instead, the company will use “more deliberate language” when talking about their autonomous driving technology.

Waymo went on to say “It may seem like a small change, but it’s an important one, because precision in language matters and could save lives.” The company added they’re hopeful the new terminology will “differentiate the fully autonomous technology Waymo is developing from driver-assist technologies – sometimes erroneously referred to as “self-driving” technologies – that require oversight from licensed human drivers.”

Waymo criticized automakers who incorrectly use “self-driving” and noted this can give consumers a false impression of a vehicle’s capabilities. This, in turn, can to lead to dangerous behaviors such as not paying attention, falling asleep behind the wheel or filming a video from the passenger seat.

As part of the effort, Waymo has renamed their public education campaign “Let’s Talk Autonomous Driving.”  It was previously known as Let’s Talk Self-Driving, but the new site is still littered with references to “self-driving.”
