They're hot. Bentley have seemed to go off the boil a bit, no doubt they're producing technically advanced cars but they lack the presence of the older cars. Whereas Rolls have still got that presence, you really notice if a Phantom arrives somewhere. I'm seeing the continental gt's around the place a fair bit but they do nothing for me.

The reason I posted this poll is because I'm not sure myself. The Bentley's are impressive machines, but the fact that they're based on a Phaeton subframe prevent
them from tinkering my bell. On the other hand, the Roll'ses does seem quite outdated, non?

Even though I am not from the UK, I still think they are very hot, but I never want to own one. If I could / would spend that amount of money on a saloon, I would buy myself a 4porte without a doubt.

Voted no, I can appreciate the engineering that goes into such a good car, and Im proud of its origins, but the cars do nothing for me, too big, too heavy, too 'look at me!!!!', just not my sort of thing........but then I wouldnt buy a ferrari ( not that I could afford either)

Indeedy Hans, one of my all time dreamcars... allthough.. I do like the new one quite a lot, the understatement of the previous model really makes my heart sing :D

I could understnd buying one for the british-ness and luxury, but they are now owned by Germans.
Too big and heavy for me, I would have a Ferrari..

Seriously lardy and uncool motors bought by people who need to try (and subsequently) fail to impress everyone else with their ostentatious show of wealth.:rolleyes:


So, I'm not a fan.:) The old ones make nice wedding cars though and are much nicer than those yank stretch limos that seem to be everywhere now.;)
