Talk about bad

tim­ing: the con­vert­ible Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GTC Speed and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Road­ster ar­rived at

wheels tow­ers the very day the weather deities de­cided to turn up the ther­mo­stat to an un­com­fort­able 45 de­grees. How­ever, de­spite the crush­ing heat and op­pres­sive hu­mid­ity the team was primed and ready to make its sweaty sac­ri­fice at the al­tar of driv­ing fun.

On a dif­fer­ent note, you’ll have no­ticed the cu­ri­ous Ogle it! logo on the cover and on this page. It’s a handy bit of tech that makes cer­tain pages in the mag­a­zine pop to life. Just down­load the Ogle app for your smart­phone or tablet, fire it up, point it at the pages with the Ogle it! logo and watch in be­fud­dle­ment as hid­den ex­tra con­tent un­rav­els right be­fore your eyes. Head to page 37 to ex­pe­ri­ence the sights, the sounds— for­tu­nately, not the smells— from our clammy, scorch­ing drop-top ad­ven­ture. En­joy.
