Pros

Awesome power, capable of both cruising effortless at 140 MPH and driving safly through the snow

Cons

A rather wilting 11 MPG, crappy seats, a bit Audi without having the toys of the A8.

Bentley Continental Gt Speed — The Bentley GT Speed is a 600 BHP monster that accelerating in a straight line at least it is able to shrug off its 2.5 tons and accelerate at a rate that can only be described as startling!!!! I am sure the massive 6L W12 twin turbo engine has something to do with it :-) In the corners your couldn't really get away from the weight but it could carry surprising speed in the bends none the less. Having covered over 1000 miles in this car in a week I can confirm that it is a fantastic GT, but you have to set the adjustable suspension to comfort, the sport setting is too harsh and a complete waste of time. At one stage I found myself driving a forest road a foot deep in snow, here the 4 wheel drive proved its worth, making a 600 BHP leviathan somehow manageable on what seemed like a ski track and I loved the rooster tails of snow flowing behind the car :-D The bad points are that for an amazing GT the seats really weren't comfortable enough and for a £260,000 + car it didn't have RADAR guided cruise control !!!!

Possible The Best Bentley Convertible Ever? — What a hairdryer.... Amzing car... With two V6's put into one (makig it a W12) it is surely just short of scud missile take off. The only problem is that I found it a bit uninvolving. You take off, your eyes water and you feel the G's, but you just dont hear much, no emotion, no sound.... Hmmm. Otherwise, an amzing car. The built quality, wood and leather are the best I've ever seen. And its all real.... Lovely lovely car....

Absolute Quality For Me. For Now... — Performance is absolutely solid for a 2.5 ton car. The thing that made me dissapoint was gt speed supersports. It only had a double clutch transmission and 0-100 just went insane. So i sended the car's ecu to modification. Now my car is nearly 720 Hp. And 0-300 just became really unbelieveable. 720 horses are just a magical number for a car like this...

Excellent In Many Ways, But............. — The car is fast, superb to look at and is one of the few cars in the world that makes you feel like your in a supercar, when your sitting in it rather than looking at it. however i have had a constant issue with the car pulling to the left, the Cheif mechanic at my dealer tells me that 'unfortunatley they all pull to the left'!!!. the trim doesnt match, i have piano black on one-side and Dark Burr on another, its 2.5 months old and still this cant be ammended, i have had a recall on the oil filter and a rattling in the exhaust was a loose screw, the dealership has turned up late on every occasion to pick up and drop off my car, the call backs are non-existant, i have to chase, and the sales & servicing disenfranchise themselves from each other, the day service at the 1000 mile mark, took 9 days however the dealer forgot to call to say the car would not be back! All in all the car is a good one, but for £140,000, you would expect a fautless machine and a gracious service.
