BIG OOPS: Last Tuesday, six editors were test-driving Bentleys in Ridgefield, Conn. “You know Tuesday was so slushy and icy. The roads were awful,” said Kate Winick, a senior editor for Worth magazine. She was driving a new convertible, the Continental GTC Speed 8011. Daily Beast books editor Lucas Wittmann was sitting in the back after two turns at the wheel. Winick was going 25 miles an hour up a hill, but lost the car into a skid when she swerved away from a UPS truck parked on the side of the road. “ ‘Lost its bumper’ is the nice, passive-voice way of saying [what happened to the car],” she said, and nobody was hurt. The $250,000 Bentley had to be towed back to New York. You would think the automaker would be upset. “No, the people from Bentley have been so lovely. You know, they deal with this stuff all time,” Winick said. “And I’ve been getting made fun of at the office, but it’s not the end of the world and hopefully not the end of my career.” The car will get mentioned in the forthcoming green luxury issue of Worth. The crash, she said, will not.
