Geneva Motor Show 2017: a look to the future of Bentley supercars

Like every year, Geneva International Motor Show has been the perfect stage for the world premiere of many luxury cars that will be tomorrow’s standard. We took a look over the horizon and got in touch with some of the best supercars of the future.

Bentley presented its new Bentayga Mulliner, a top-level SUV which will be built in very limited number and features a superior selection of materials and finishing, where the owner will play an important role from the customization point of view. This car surely represents a redifinition of exclusive luxury.

Bentley also presented its most powerful and fastest Continental model: the coupé version of the brand new Continental Supersports reaches a top speed of 336 kph and accelerates from 0 to 100 kph in 3.5 s. Quite good numbers for a car which reaches top level in both categories, luxury and sportscars.

Summer 2017 Early Bird Booking: ready for the warm season!

We do love snow. We love it, indeed. But since we travel everyday to give the best service around Europe, we have fallen in love with many locations which give their best during the warm season.

In our blog we already spent some words on beautiful Tuscany, a land of smooth hills and sweet valleys which is home to some of the best expressions of italian cuisine, touristic locations, arts and panoramas.

At the same time, we remain always astonished by the beauty of the southern France, where a rich and historic land meets some of the most famous shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Another location where we love to work is the area of Marbella and Malaga, where the warmth of the sun unleashes the spicy and folkloristic Spanish heritage.

Summer is also the perfect season to visit European capital cities: we feel at home in Rome, Berlin, Paris and Madrid, where we daily deliver our service to our customers, delivering the best luxury and sports cars at their hotel or at the airport.

If you plan a trip in one of these locations, or anywhere in Europe, contact us and benefit of our Summer 2017 Early Bird Booking opportunities: you will have the chance to choose the car you love, and rent it at the best price!

Our newest cars: BMW X5

One of the best mid-sized BMW Sport-Utility Vehicles (SUVs), the new generation of X5 has evolved into a Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV), becoming a perfect match between comfort and sporty look and feel. In fact, despite its size, BMW X5 can reach great performances on the road in terms of drive and stability.

Based on a unibody chassis, BMW X5 shares its underpinnings with the BMW 5 series, a performance luxury sedan. This makes this car less oriented on a hardcore off-road soul, making it a better fit for drivers looking for luxury and comfort, but still with the “X Factor” (which stands for 4×4 models, in BMW’s world).

At King Rent we are really glad to have the chance to offer to our customers BMW X5, a pinnacle in the SAV/SUV/4×4 category. Anyway, if you are looking for something different for your next trip, we have plenty of options in our Luxury Car Categories page.

Our newest cars: the new Mercedes GLS

It’s not about appearence: most of the new features of Mercedes’ luxury SUV GLS (evolution of Mercedes GL) are hidden inside its core. More efficient engines, the new 9G-tronic shift, evoluted multimedia management, active and passive security are just a few concepts the German engineers worked on to launch the new version.

From the design point of view, Mercedes GLS keeps the classic and immortal design of Mercedes SUVs we already know very well. Anyway, GLS features a new design especially on the front: bumper and headlights have been re-designed.

Those looking for a 7-seats-SUV with a sporty look can also choose the AMG Line package for exterior and interior: this means a bumper with larger openings, 21-inch wheels, brushed steel pedals, sporty seats and steering wheel and instrumentation with a checkerboard background.

Tuscany’s Treasures – The Abbey of San Galgano: inspiring King Arthur’s mythology?

A cistercian monastery found in the valley of the river Merce, the Abbey of San Galgano in the tuscanian province of Siena is a breathtaking, mystic place. The roofless walls of the Gothic style 13th-century Abbey church still stand tall above the visitor, and still remember the faith and industry of the local inhabitants which started building them around 1220 to remember the Catholic Saint Galgano Guidotti (San Galgano, in Italian), who lived as a hermit and died in the nearby town of Chiusdino.

Formerly a ruthless knight in its early life, Galgano – according to the myth – had a vision about Archangel Michael, the Apostles and the Creator himself. Reading this as a sign, Galgano decided to plant a cross, but having no chance to build a wood cross, planted its sword in the ground. The stone yielded like butter, then became rock again, and noone could ever remove the cross from that point. It is said that the episode inspired the very similar episode in the Arthurian mythology. Myth or not, you can still see the sword planted in the ground in the nearby Montesiepi Chapel.

Hollywood Supercars 5: General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard

Featuring its shining orange color and the “drifting and jumping” driving style of Bo and Luke Duke, General Lee quickly became an icon of its time. Seen between 1979 and 1985 in “The Dukes of Hazzard” television series, General Lee (often simply referred as “the General”) is a modified 1969 Dodge Charger which features a Confederate flag on its roof (symbol of the indomable spirit of indipendence of many southern US States), welded shut doors (which forced the Duke cousins to jump in and out through the windows), American Racing Vector 8×15” or 8.5×15” alloy rims, and a horn which plays the first twelve notes of the song “Dixie”, an anthem for the Southern United States.

Hollywood Supercars 4: the “real” Supercar

Michael Knight was a lucky guy. In fact, not many men had the chance to drive a real supercar which features turbo boost, can jump, talk. And even few can name the car after their family. The name of world renown KITT from Knight Rider’s american series with David Hasselhoff, in fact, stands for Knight Industries Two Thousand. This futuristic supercar was based on a supermodified 1982 Pontiac Trans Am and featured some of those qualities that every driving and racing fan could possibly love in a car. Continue reading

Hollywood Supercars 3: Batmobile Inspirations – The Tumbler

During his 75-years-and-more anti-criminal activity, multi-millionaire Mr. Bruce Wayne (a.k.a. the Batman) has had the best that life could give a man. In fact, being a multi-millionaire superhero seems to bring a lot of benefits, from partying with some of the most beautiful girls ever (Nicole Kidman, Kim Basinger and Michelle Pfeiffer just to name a few) to have at complete disposal an arsenal of bat-tools which could make feel McGuyver absolutely useless. But since our life (and our blog) is dedicated to supercars, there is only one benefit we really envy to the masked vigilante: driving the Batmobile. Continue reading
