Buying Guide

Good

  • Massive Bentley coupes 17' 6" long by 6' 9" wide.
  • 400bhp turbocharged V8s, and 420bhp from March 1999.
  • Four speed autoboxes.
  • Not as intimidating to drive as you'd think.

Bad

  • Handling not up to standards of a Jaguar XJR or Mercedes-Benz S Class.
  • By 2006 parts were becoming difficult to source, so parent company Volkswagen started a service manufacturing them from scratch.
  • This means you can get the part but it will be very expensive.
