Re: Bentley Continental GT

ugly as sin and driven by footballers who don't realise they're driving around in something that looks like a great big 1920's mahogany sideboard. uncool.

The most uncool and soulless Bentley. In many ways a victim of it's own success. Impressive performance at the expense of desirability.

Errr........uncool!

Re: Bentley Continental GT

Not sure about this one.

Not seen many driven by footballers, but do see
quite a few around.

Verging on cool but there's something missing...

Can't go around a bend. Looks like some sort of dead animal. Just a tad better than the 4 door version though: uncool.

Re: Bentley Continental GT

I work in Mayfair and probably see a couple of these each day (or the same two every day)..... no one bats an eyelid over them.

And one day there was a Brera parked outside the office in blue... the coppers outside the nearest embassy were looking, cars slowing down, people stopping and having a look.

So Continentals cool? Not particularly. Driven by very rich guys, yes. Cool, not in my book.

Re: Bentley Continental GT

Something and nothing really, I expect it's very comfortable, fast, quiet, refined, full of funky gizmos but it lacks coolness because they're everywhere and a bit on the dull side. It's all a bit Puff Daddy and footballers wifey

The old Bentley Turbo R was cool, looked like a breeze block and went like stink

Re: Bentley Continental GT

This is, if you can afford one in these economic difficulties, the best way to travel. While the styling may be a cross between a Morgan and and Roller (both of which are ghastly), the comfort and power of this car cannot be overlooked. There may be more wood in the cabin of this car than in your normal Highland retreat but this is a place to feel relaxed and unwind after a hard days work staring at the plummeting stock market. It has more than enough power to let off some of that pent up rage should you be one of the unlucky souls who only manages to put in an hour before being sent home on permanent leave too. It's image is of the ****** behind the wheel, not helped by all the footballers that have been pictured in them, but this car is still cool. And anyway, Beckham has his up for sale now.
