"Something was wrong with the brakes" said Scott Coleman, boss man at London car graphics shop Totally Dynamic, about a hapless Bentley Continental GT that screeched across a rotary, blew through a metal post, and plunged lemming-like into the River Lee north of London.

While the driver escaped unharmed, firemen were unable to extricate the Bentley from five feet of water. The mishap occurred when someone on staff "went to move the silver Bentley."

Hm. If this had occurred with an old-skool Bentley, the kind with ornery mineral-oil brake systems that collapsed when traditional fluid was accidentally used, we'd buy this excuse. But a modern vehicle, with a dual-circuit master cylinder sourced from Audi/VW, getting this out of hand sounds about as plausible as the Audi 5000 unintended acceleration fracas of the 80s.

Perhaps the staffer wanted to see just how Totally Dynamic the twin-turbo, W-12, 552-hp bad boy really is.
