The car handles great and has plenty of power. The interior could be a little better thought out, but only a minor issue. Reliability is a huge problem. There is an electrical bug somewhere in this car and the Bentley service has been poor at best. The car has been in the shop at least 5 times in the last year, and it is still not right. Dealing with the problems has taken all the fun out of this car.

I am a 60 year old maried businesman. We also own a 2006 Jaguar VP and 2004 Mercedes S500. I cannot drive this vehicle without someone giving me the thumbs up. This vehicle is the ultimate driving experience.

I bought this car for the interior and it doesn't disappoint - except perhaps the plastic display surround. The leather and wood is heavenly and reminds you of the English craftsmanship clothing the largely German dynamics. The latter is reassuring, since I have had an unpleasant ownership experience with an old school Brit supercar, the Aston Virage. The car is undeniably heavy, but the 4wd deals well with the power, and good drivers can push it further than you might suppose. However, dynamically it would be outpaced through the bends by some of my other cars - Ferrari 550, 911 Turbo, Noble (small volume English rocket!) Still, for elegant trundling, it beats any Merc, BMW or Audi.

After a Mercedes-Benz S55, the Bentley has restored my faith in expensive quality cars. The driving experience is all that I expected and the quality of build inside and out is first rate. Its performance is astonishing for such a heavy car but it translates to relatively poor mileage. The stereo is great but sat/nav is fiddly to use and very basic in its features. Servicing has been hassle free with all costs covered under the warranty and the dealership has taken care of any problems. The rear seat accomodation is tight but if I wanted a 4 seater I would have got the sedan! All in all I am very satisfied with the car and it fulfilled all my expectations. I highly recommended it.

This is the car! I've owned a few luxury cars and a few Ferraris' and this car is a great compromise between an everyday driver and a weekend fun car. It's very practical for everyday use with loads of performance for those spirited drive times.

Behaving well at every speed I am constantly amazed that 80 mph in my 2005 Bentley Continental GT feels like 40 and 110 feels like 60. This car is effortless in just about everything it does. It just keeps on delivering power. The back seats are a bit of a squash for adults but the kids are fine in them. The Turbo R feels like a real clunker now!
