  Find of the Week: Deadmau5's Bentley Continental Supersports Is a 6.0L W12 engine enough to be our autoTRADER.ca Find of the Week? How about a four-seat convertible that originally sold for more than $300,000? What if it was owned by one of the biggest Canadian musicians today? And he made it famous in a YouTube video? That's exactly what we have this week. A 2011 Bentley Continental Supersports convertible. Previously owned by deadmau5, and used in one of his Coffee Run interviews.The Continental was the first model that Bentley designed and released after the BMW and Volkswagen Rolls debacle that saw Rolls in the hands of BMW and Bentley under the VW umbrella. The new car needed to impress, and it did.

Here are some particularly good times to buy a car The end of the summer or early fall when automobile companies introduce their new models can be a great time to buy , since dealers are clearing out their old inventories to make room for the new models.

A fantastic time to buy a car in particular isn’t one that has a defined time of year, but is during a model run out. When a new car is introduced, it often (but not always) comes with a rush of demand- people wanting the newest model and prepared to pay top dollar for it.

GM's new Marketplace is a group of apps that use the 4G LTE connectivity in select Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles. It's designed to let people handle everyday tasks safely while they drive. The goal is to save time and effort. And make it safer and easier to do things you're probably already doing via your smartphone.

The GM shop lets you buy more data for your car or extend your OnStar subscription, but it's also used to send the driver offers for parts and service for their car.

The Starbucks app lets drivers order their coffee and food on the go, letting you skip the line by having it ready for pickup when you arrive. There is a similar app for Dunkin' Donuts.

Shell and ExxonMobil apps will find gas stations, as well as give pricing and station amenities. Pay from your car isn't available now, but it's expected. Jaguar lets you buy fuel direct from your car in other parts of the world already.

Other food apps include Wingstop, TGI Fridays, Applebees, and IHOP. The TGI Fridays app lets you make reservations, the other ones do online ordering. There is also a delivery.com app that lets you order from more local restaurants and stores for pickup or delivery.

Parkopedia and Priceline let you find parking and book a hotel while you're on your road trip.

GM is planning to add more features over the next 12 to 18 months. The Marketplace will be added to millions of 2017 and 2018 GM vehicles as well as new models.

But you can't order your Tims on the go just yet. The Marketplace is US only, for now. GM Canada told us that they are evaluating expansion to other markets based on how popular it is in the US.
