I think deep down he probably still thinks his movie flopped cuz it wasnt a 'blue' film.

Those are 5 spoke standard 19 inch alloys, as the car runs on 275/40 R 19 tyres as standard.

I wouldn't call them heinous. My neighbour's got a Conti GT in Emerald Green with 8-spoke 19in rims. They look pretty decent. There's another GT in Black nearby with the 5 spoke design seen on the Flying Spur in Delhi. It looks gorgeous, and I guess it goes to show that colour really does make a difference.

Here's the Bentley alone:



Check this out for 'PART' of his collection:



Seen above are the GT, a CLS55 AMG and a Jaguar S-Type 3.0 V6. Other cars in the kitty include a Mini Cooper in sky blue, an SL500 in silver, and an E55 AMG (estate) in silver. Other cars SEEN at the home are a 996 Cabriolet, a Cayenne S and a 645ci Convertible.

Another picture taken last summer, grabbing a few more cars. A friend's 997 Carrera S in black can be seen to the extreme left:

you are mistaking the awesome Conti GT wheels with the flying spurs..



the std flying spur wheels are



still different than conti GT wheels which are better and the wheels this gentleman has are hideous..very very bad..he might have opted for a diff std set than the ones on most ad pictures..but those are bad..

The stadard set of wheels I was discussing with the black GT near my house, make the car appear as follows:



The colour really does make quite difference.
