Blown Away By It !!!
September 29, 2009
After owning many high end vehicles, the end result renders the Bentley Flying Spur at the top of the list. Power and quality are present in all aspects of this creation. I was really expecting the built quality to be similar to a top of the line Mercedes-Benz. Rude awakening for me. This monster is comparable to a jet to say the least.
However, it lacks some new technology that the other manufactures? have equipped their cars with. Night vision, blind spot detection, visual parking sensors, and quite a few cameras. Shortly after, I realized that this vehicle is a timeless classic that doesn't focus and pride it's self on too many bells and whistles. Sure they have access to all the technology, being owned by the VW group, but why did they choose not to incorporate any of these features in this Continental? Well, Bentley is known for its quality and performance. Everything about this car is yelling out craftsmanship, build quality, and personalization. Not necessarily a high tech space ship but rather a cocoon for peace and quiet to get away from it all.
At the end of the day, what is especially impressive is the interior and its use of real wood and the best of leather that seamlessly comes together. This vehicle doesn't just get you from point A to point B, it let's everyone know you have arrived.
