a car that weighs 2.5 tonnes and can do 0-60 in 5 seconds is cool!

Gaz and I seem to be just on the other side of each other's lines with these beasts!

It's yet another variation on a familar Bentley theme with an arguably more horrid interior than normal. You say "Bentley" and I just think "cigars attached to the fleshy gobs of fat b'strds".

...or blingy Breitling watches and footballers.

Uncool. No question.

Had it been the 80s Mulsanne Turbo or Turbo R, it's as cool as having a nuclear reactor running the heating in your stately home. That is just really vulgar.

Uncool. The headlights are wrong and ruin the car, which would otherwise not have looked as good as the Brooklands or the Arnage..

Awful, coarse, vulgar, boastful, macho, crude, tasteless, bejewelled, nasty thing.

Everything I dislike in a car.

I voted cool, on the basis that it's quite a car, and not the kind of thing footballists will go for.

Though I reserve the right to change my vote to "seriously uncool" if I hear of a professional footballer buying one!

The jury is out.

I like it from all angles except the front.

From the front it looks like an early 2000s Impreza.

It's cool, although the headlamps are a bit of a drop-shot. It's been given the corporate 'eyebrows singed off' look.

As Morgan stated previously, I reserve the right to change my opinion, should the Mulsanne become popular with footballers/gangster rappers, etc.

Has the one element that hideous Maybach lacks - style

Cool but not sub-zero

It's a worry, isn't it? As soon as the "new money" lot get their hands on cool cars, they instantly become deeply uncool.

Hold on, why am I bothered? I'll probably never be able to afford anything like that anyway!

Cool, but if I had the money probably wouldn't want to own one unless I could afford a chauffeur also

Love it. Very cool car with a very cool racing history badge behind it too!

I'm a sucker for a luxo-barge.

i really want to like it, but there's something about the front and the rear styling transmitting a whiff of naff that i equate to certain Ferraris driven by kebab shop owners.

It's more bloated plutocrat rather than chav made good so I think it only merits uncool rather than seriously uncool.

And most will be fortunate if they even see one, let alone own or ride in one?
