The Quicker You Go, The Less The Hair Will Blow

Tiff Needell, the host of Fifth Gear, had this theory about the Bentley Continental GTC: the faster you go with the roof stowed, the less wind enters the cabin. To test his theory, he took the drop top Bentley, put two lovely ladies in the back seat and blast down the runway at 150MPH. Then he ran out of runway and ended up in the dirt. What happen to the hair on his female passengers? Watch the video and find out.

      That was quite a cool ending there seeing it slide around.

    1. Cheap Custom Content…. have you ever been outside of your house? 100+ comment… jesus man.

    did you notice the chrysler based rolls royce? thats crazy!

  9. forngren says:

    That must mean that you have to go 200mph, right?

    1. I guess it means that no matter how fast you’re going, you’re still gonna mess up your locks in the wind unless you put the top on and close the windows LOL.

  10. Some people have the best jobs. 😯

  11. Rhys says:

  13. Tyler Ingram says:

    My CEO has 2 of those Continental Sedans.. each were about $250,000.

    Fun video though, car report type shows should do more things like that 😉

  14. My favorite episode was when they were racing through the American South with the three cars and the hillbillies were going to lynch them.

  15. Oh wait… I think that’s Top Gear. I always confuse the two shows.

  16. Jeff Kee says:

    I liked the girl on teh right better than the Bentley itself.

  17. SEO Blog says:

    Reminds me of Monty Python and the search for the Holy Grail where the knight gets captured by those women and they come to “rescue” him.

    “You couldn’t handle it”
    “I… I’d like to give it a shot”

    1. James says:

      Are you sure they were British?

  19. Ma2T says:

    I have seen quiet a few of them around my way recently (England of course) I knew they were pricey cars.
    Good job Tiff is an ex-racing driver huh?

  20. Martin says:

    lol yeah I watched that 5th gear, why not just put the windows up next time? I suppose thats not as much fun as driving at 150 mph

  21. everton says:

    I think he’s at Brighton Airport as a mate of mine who works for Ricardo Engineering did the final engine testing of the Bentley turbo there. He had to do it at 2am when the airport was shut.

    We had the car for the weekend once, which was nice…..

  22. hahah their hair looks ok..but poor girls got taken for a ride 👿 hope they got paid well

  23. If you’ve ever had dirt in your wind-blown hair, you pretty much know what the two girls felt in that video LOL.

    1. Sarthak K says:
