Ecks, you must be really enjoying the beast. Only if in india we had custom plates, RAGN BUL would fit it perfectly.

345's are only in 20" & his stock size is 18" so it would need new rims! And the 355's are for SUV's made by Kumho!

This is purely torture. He is toying with us. Its been so many days since it arrived, and still no pics and report from him yet. . He should remember that team bhp was with him through all those agonizing days of him waiting for his machine. So he should end this torture and post as soon as possible, else we should give him an infraction

Ok guys, let me explain what happened. The much awaited day comes. It's raining cats and dogs in chandigarh. The car is waiting in a truck near Industrial Area (for those of you who reside in Chd) . I go there with a friend of mine from my office and WOW is the car huge! I mean , while it was being off loaded, it's rear seemed like a fighter jet / alien space craft!

All this time , I am trying to keep calm. The car is off loaded and the service tech tells me that we should wait till the rain stops and then drive back home. I was cool with it till streams of people start stopping by and taking snaps. I had to take the call to leave as I wasn't comfortable with that.

When I sat in the car, first reaction was, WOW! I revved the car at idle and it was DAMN nice.. The sound was out of this world! Very low car, front end seems deceptively low but even with nose down it drives very very nicely. With nose up, it takes over bumps with ease. There is no way that I can see the front end of the car and the seat can not be lifted, as it only reclines/moves front and back. I drove the car real slow back home.

On reaching home, while my driver was cleaning the car, he noticed something. First, there was a paint chip over the left headlamp. Second , around the same spot, was a scratch mark. Third was a metal tear, probably caused by a sharp object , literally , impaling the metal. I immediately showed this to the tech, who took snaps and called up the Service Center at Delhi. I had NO idea how to react! I mean, they said this might have happened during transportation because when they loaded the car, it was fine. Any who, I was patient and asked for a repair job. I didn't drive the car that day. It took 3 days for them to complete the job, which included a trip back to delhi and coming over the day after and they fixed all of it here. Another interesting thing was that moisture had went into the couplers in the engine , which gave the, " Check Engine" light which was fixed by them on the spot. A little jinxed it would seem, but fixed nonetheless.

Ok,so once the car is all fixed, I can hardly wait for it to drive it! Once i drove it, man is it a beast! Amazing power, sound and handling! Till 5 k RPM,it just grumbles for more! After that , it screams F1 baby! To the point that I felt scared at first that I couldn't handle that much speed. It's like a time WARP!

Anywho, enough of words, and here are the pictures. They aren't the best clicked AT ALL, but I promise I'll click better ones and prepare a video soon.

Oh. My. God. I've sat in one of these but seeing these pictures, man am I drooling or what. Now all that Bull needs is another 0001 like the rest. Hot stuff, man.

.......and yes, I know you guys will tell me to focus here, but that is one sweet Bentley
