Amazing — Just my sort of car. The best looking car off all time in my point of view. Its Fast, Amazing and one of the best looking. 5 star quality, speed and looks are mint. No other car is better than this.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fast

Cons: none

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...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Quality just got better and faster...

Cons: Price tag and taxes at Turkey made this car 410.000 Euros...

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 !!!!

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.

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....

Pros: Interior, Speed, Comfort, Looks from passers by!

Cons: Rear styling, Uninvolving, Needs more emtion...

Its Marvalice — Never need repairs never broken down great gas mileage Very fun to drive and i recommend it to everyone it makes you feel like you 20 again with a six back and the world is yous and you should live like it is and when you put your hand on the leather you feel like your being meld to the car and that its like a cage you want to live in this car for the rest of your life"But you would need a refrigerator, toilet , and A internet connection..... But all together this is a palace on wheels

Pros: its very fun and cool to drive

Cons: not the best gas mileage

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.

Owner for 0 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:8,000

Pros: fast, good looking, luxury in a sports car

Cons: Dealer and after service appauling, they pull to the left - apparently
