This car is not for everyone! This car is for the coinsurer and the cosmopolitan. Unlike the new GT version which is half the price of the T or R and dime a dozen, this car is one of the most exclusive cars in the world. The continental T and R are like no other cars. After driving one, one feels impassioned and enthralled to drive again and again and no other car will suffice. The car can make anyone feel like a real king. All doors are open for the driver and one can park this car where ever one stops. Again, I implore you to not seek out this car. If after the first two seconds of seeing one, you don't feel a longing for it, a constant feeling of emptiness without one then this car is not for you. But if you are among the very few that know about this extraordinary car and are not afraid to drive it after buying one then I encourage you to do so and join me amongst the gentile. Bentley started the production of the Continental in 1993 and stopped in 2003. They made two models: T and R. The T has a four inch shorter wheelbase and stronger suspension for better handling. Both the T and R have special models with Mulliner packages. Both can be found with 4 inch fender flares and 420hp with 675lb torque. The R also comes in a SC, which has a hard top that comes off. The SC is the most limited in production and was only produced for two years. Both T and R have special models such at the Millennium edition and California edition, etc. My favorite is the 2000 Continental R Millennium edition with wide body, because it is the best and has everything. Well, except the sunroof. This is a good thing, because once one looks at the leather plush ceiling there is no need for a sunroof. But for those who can�t be without one, there is always the SC of 1999. A special feature on all of the 420hp models is a turbo gauge in the middle console. Turbo gauges are installed only on a very few production cars in the world and this is one of them. The Continental is truly ONE of THEM. Today, 2006, the Continental T/R/SC can be purchased from anywhere between 80K and 180K. I aver that every penny is worth the ride, presence, feeling, and empowerments this car provides. No life is complete with out one.
