Considering the UK journalists are only now getting theirshands on the car - this is quite an achievement and pretty good on Bentley for getting the car in double quick

The Indian Jeremy Clarkson, what can I say! From Mercs to Skoda Superbs, Audis to Bentleys...havent we driven them all?

I have to give you credit for pulling something like this off. Very very nice

GTO
Unlike Clarkson, he drives them forward and backwards and not sideways or does not try shaving the tread of the tyres

Whoa Dippy! How in the world did you manage to pull this trick off!

I saw the Spur on MD at about 2pm. It's not really an imposing car and I couldn't help but think of it as a glorified Phaeton though.

Thank you everyone. I feel it is great that I could get a review of the Flying Spur for Team BHP even before we read it in the ACIs and ODs. I think I was one of the only few to get my hands on it within a week of its official launch. Goes to show that Team BHP is right up there when it comes to New Car reviews.

dippy, you lucky dawg.....!!!! what can i say- another feather atop the team-bhp's "ripped and revved" hat, eh....??? great going there, dude...... nice review, and awesome pics, too..... and i'm pretty sure that you didn't feel the 100 mph mark lurking on you until you saw the speedo...am i right..?? methinks a bentley driver must be feeling like it's doing 60, when the car is actually doing 160.....

n_c and dippy, please feel free to share the "secret code" with me too.....will surely come in handy....

and dippy, considering that the new carrera 4 will be hitting the shores soon, pray tell if you're going in for a test- no matter where you are, will be there in one hour flat.....
