Whew! Just short of attack, the FS vanishes and GT makes debut. Quite a thriller.

Congrats to you and your family on the prized possession.

Raj, yeah I know a few TFort fleets do exist but man I so much hate to see that, fortunately the sight is not as frequent as Innova Taxis.

My hearty congrats on the Flying B Manuuj. Wish you a lots of happy miles with it!

Trust me on this, I never liked the facelifted GT when it was launched in India (the launch cars were, I think, red and silver) right until I saw the absolute first pic of this thread. White never fails to do the magic.

I would love to have the GT but If I was offered to pick one among the trio, I would have gone for the SS. Just for kicks! Love its menacingly understated looks

Waitng for more pics. Thread rated 5 stars earlier. How did the specs compare between the two finalists? Glad to see that you went with your heart.

Supersport, my not soo realistic dream car... I thought it looked best in white but the pic of it made me think again. The pics are just Awesome. Congrats to you and your brother for the GT. I am not too surprised to hear that the ride in the supersport was a bit harsh compared to the GT.

Thanks a lot for sharing the pics and your experience. And yes, the way you write is commendable.

@Manuuj: Congrats and nice write up. This pic of the Bentley with a small 'nimbu' beneath those massive tyres reminds me of one thing: "The Princess and the Pea". Good to see some one tear his hair apart over the choice of which Bentley it would be.

It was going to be the Bentley Continental GT.
Congrats Mannuj. Finally the suspense is over. Wishing you a long ownership and a pot hole free ride.

Looks like the Home Minsitry is not getting their way in politics as well as in real life

Congrats for the big B bro. I was thinking he will go for FS Speed. But anyways, GT is also a great car !! Enjoy.

fabulous choice !! there are a couple of these GT's in Hyderabad and every time I see one in different colour zoom past I can't help drool over it's gorgeous shape. I think the GT and GTC really do proudly wear the Bentley badge

Do please take a video of the car's growl while being driven and post here for us to enjoy
