Thank God for that. I don't understand why Bentley is so bent on abusing he Continental platform. They have a new performance version out every month, seemingly.

@ SamtheLeo : The Corsa Sail and Swing were two of the very cute looking, non-disproportionate cars which unfortunately couldn't stand the "kam daam mein jyaada" attitude of the Indian buyer back in the day.

As far as the Bentley goes, the front is as elegant as a Bentley's should be, but they've royally messed up the rear turning a would've-been-beautiful-car into nothing less than a very majestically ugly hearse I'd say.

In one of the pics they've also demonstrated how the back seats fold in order to accomodate the coffin of that rich bloke who apparently bought it

What an ugly car!! Wonder what the designers were thinking of when they drew this on paper and I'd like to know how management would approve such a thing. Its hideous!

+1 to that, if i ran the Bentley. I would have hidden the badges in some volcano Still, the front quarter is a total give away that it is a bentley.

Congrats on your new bentleys, brothers.
No, you haven't bought it, Bentley has decided that they'd give it to you for FREE.
Its because the research for potential customers for the "Flying Star" by bentley states a figure called "ZERO", so they thought of you instead!

No offence meant brothers, but I do not understand what is the basis of your saying

I liked it too, except for the cane/coir kinda finish at the back of the seats.
I think the car looks different.

Looks a Bently from the front, Estate from Back - Start with what you have : get that back half of that car in easy 30/40K. And start saving for the front part.
