Since the groundbreaking debut of W.O. Bentley’s mighty 3-litre sports car in 1921, Bentley has been producing some of the world’s finest motor cars. First unveiled at the Geneva Salon of 2007, the Bentley Brooklands coupé is no exception, combining exquisite craftmanship and the height of luxury with nerve-tingling performance. The Bentley Brooklands is a glorious celebration of this remarkable, handmade grand tourer. Featuring a fascinating insight into the car’s design and manufacture, and a first-hand account of how it performs on the open road, the book also follows the Brooklands as it is driven from London to the south of France to commemorate the famous ‘Blue Train’ race of 1930 between a Bentley Speed Six and the Calais–Mediterranean Express. With stunning photographs throughout, The Bentley Brooklands is a wonderful tribute to a landmark Bentley – a true driver’s car in the finest traditions of the marque’s history.

Excerpt: The Bentley Arnage is a large luxury car produced by Bentley Motors in Crewe, England from 1998 to 2009. The Arnage, and its Rolls-Royce-branded sibling, the Silver Seraph, were introduced in the Spring of 1998, and were the first entirely new designs for the two marques since 1980. Another break from the past was to be found under the bonnet, for decades home to the same 6.75 litre V8 engine, a powerplant which could trace its roots back to the 1950s. The new Arnage was to be powered by a BMW V8 engine, with Cosworth-engineered twin-turbo installation, and the Seraph was to employ a BMW V12 engine. The Arnage is over 5 metres (197 in) long, 1.9 metres (75 in) wide, and has a kerb weight of more than 2.5 metric tonnes. For a brief period it was the most powerful and fastest four-door saloon on the market. In September 2008, Bentley announced that production of the model would cease during 2009. Following the uplift in sales for all of Rolls-Royce, and resurgence of the Bentley marque, the then-owner, Vickers, set about preparing a new model to replace the derivatives of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/Bentley Mulsanne which it had been selling since 1980. In a complete switch from tradition, these new cars would have bodies built at the Crewe factory, with its internal combustion engines built elsewhere. A number of potential.

Inspired by the William Jefferson Clinton White House scandals, a pulpy page-turner of tabloid intrigue. The steady rise and stunning fall of a wealthy Cincinnati family is brought to life at the height of Monica Lewinsky scandal. Self-made businessman Griffin Jewells Saunders II is a handsome black embodiment of the American dream. A lucrative business alliance with his Clinton cabinet-appointed half-brother easily ensnares in the Republican attack machine. Griffin's frantic efforts to evade imprisonment and public shame push both him and his family to the brink: his attention-desperate bisexual teen son becomes the unwitting victim of a gay pornography ring; his local celebrity self-absorbed wife plots to use a blackmail scheme to catapult to the national stage. GJS II twists and spirals, in prose by turns lyrical and coarse with political incorrectness. At times, it's hard to know whom to root for, but the read is always riveting. Urban. Literary Fiction. Explicit.

The word "luxury" has almost lost its meaning. Once used to describe genuinely prestigious products or places, the concept of luxury has been hijacked by a multitude of aspiring or overpriced commodities, from foot spas to chocolates. So what is real luxury? Which are the genuine luxury brands, and how have they reacted to the rise of the "mass luxury" sector? What strategies do they use to lift themselves into the realm of the truly elite? Who are their customers - and what kind of lives do these remarkable people lead? How do luxury brands attract and retain them? And above all, where can the industry turn now excess is out of fashion? With wit, accuracy and insatiable curiosity, Luxury World takes us on a voyage around the luxury universe, slipping behind the facades of the world's most sophisticated businesses to demonstrate how they function. Among other destinations, Luxury World visits Swiss watchmakers, the Champagne houses of France, the diamond district of Antwerp, the luxury enclave of Monte Carlo, the discreet ateliers of the last craftsmen and a host of brands in Paris - the self-proclaimed capital of elegance. Along the way, he uncovers the true face of today's luxury industry.
