id like one soooo much (the arnage T anyway)

500BHP, 1000Nm of torque,
179mph top speed,
0-60 mph in 5.5 secs,
new ZF six speed auto,

Yeah, if you can afford the car, no doubt you can afford to paint it.

That Bentley styling is just starting to look like an old-hag car. I was enjoying what they did with the bentley continental gt coupe and was looking for more new bentleys like that. Almost like they don't understand the concept of cars adapting to newer trends of society for more appeal.

Anyways I am sure if I was inside one the last thing I'd be thinking about is the styling.

its called keeping it conservitive, the last thing they want to do to the arnage is completely change the looks! all the bentleys look different apart from the arnage, its been like that for donkeys years, like the land rover defender!!!!

I think a company with so much history and prestige has every right to make its own trends and not follow the current style.

You talk about it as if it's a person. This is, as you said, a "company", meaning it provides a service for people, and it has to market things to people. Your company can do whatever the darn hell it wants, but at the end of the day, it still has to sell things to people, and if people aren't satisfied, they might go elsewhere.

What kind of statement is that?

But at least they have a wider range of models, and from a business perspective, that's probably the best way to utilize their "history and prestige".
