Sorry the pic is so bad, the white balance was set too far, and I was in a hurry to catch it before the light turned green. This was definitely a Bentley... the logo was in the middle of the trunk. Anybody seen these before?

Dang, I saw THREE of them on the way home today!
(all silver)

(I was wondering what type of car it was... the symbol looked like a "H")

They have a lot of them in the city, how common are they?

How can you tell if a Bentley is owned by a drug dealing street thug and a normal rich guy?

The normal rich guy keeps the stock rims on his Bentley.

They're far from a concept model, haven been out on the market since 2003. In fact, they are introducing a 4 door version of that platform that carries the styling very well, the Flying Spur. Ultimate dream car. Bi-turbo W12 AWD with a top speed somewhere around 200 mph and you can still hear the second hand ticking on the clock. Fuggeduboutit.

You want real lust? Look around for concept sketch of the Continental GTC. Omigosh.

Getting divorced from Rolls Royce and married to Volkswagen was the best thing that could have happened to Bentley.

Oooooh, that hurts. There is NO comparison as far as an automobile goes. That's like saying you saw a Pagini Zonda and it looked like a Fiero to you. That's just so wrong on so many different levels. I think I'm actually tearing up...

Anyhow, imitation is the sincerest form of flatery, and the 300 has always been recognized by people who are connaiseurs of fine lines as an aping of Bentley proportion and profile. Going even a step further is Chrysler with their knock-off Rolls-Royce - the Imperial Concept, which looks like just the item for whisking those Chinese captains of industry to their meetings with WalMart executives. Buy American.

The "DUB" Chrysler adds 20" chrome wheels, and a Bently esque mesh grille and tailights to a 300 sedan.
It looks somewhat like a Bently.
Bling bling. Whoopie.
Theres nothing wrong with the Chrysler 300, but It AIN'T no Bently.

I saw one in Palm Springs a few weeks ago. Photos don't do it justice. It is a beautiful car and it seems smaller in person.

I was surprised by how loud it was when it drove off. Sadly, I can't speak regarding cabin noise levels.


Sorry that the photo quality is not the best.
