If you're a fan of the Bentley car (as seen in many James Bond films), you'll want to make plans to attend the Concours d'Elegance. Classic Bentleys, such as three of the early race car Bentley Speed Six and four of the supercharged Birkin Blower, will be on display. Motor Trend just announced that the first Bentley ever entered in a Le Mans race will also appear. As previously reported, Bentley will also reveal the concept version of its new Arnage at the event. Bentley isn't the only marque planning to unveil a new car at the Concours d'Elegance. Devon Motorworks has announced it will roll out the super-fast GTX at the event. Here's some computer-generated images of that beauty: A record-setting auction is expected when Ettore Bugatti's Bugati type 57C goes on the block. The winning bid on that automotive work of art is expected to be somewhere north of $12.1 million. Wired has stunning photos of the one-of-a-kind vehicle. As Bethpage prepares for the 2009 U.S. Open Championship, avid golf fans are already making plans for the 2010 U.S. Open Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links. The USGA will begin accepting ticket applications at the USGA website on June 22. If you'd prefer to lend a hand, the USGA is currently accepting volunteer applications. For detailed information on the ticket application process and how to volunteer, as well as hotel booking information and more, see our 2010 U.S. Open Championship page on SeeMonterey.com.
