just fapped. thrice. Also, the first pic of the 458 really does so much more for the car at that angle. The line from the top of the fender vents, following down the top of the headlight shape and then above the vents in the bonnet, creating the sharper snout within the face, plus the 'teeth' vanes in the front = awesome. That plus the greenhouse getting pulled so tightly towards the rear, I agree that the 458 might just be the best looking Ferrari out right now, and maybe the best of the mid-engined V8 cars.

Does anybody else think the center nose panel (that is matte black plastic) on the 458 would looked better match-painted, leaving the strakes and surrounds as-is? I think it'd do a lot more for making that flat nose look more centered, and continue the rear theme as well.

Well not exactly on the street but at the RR-Bentley dealer on Loop 610 in Houston, Tx.:

An Azure Bentley convertible. My favorite.



A white Bentley coupe:



It's gorgeous interior:



A black RR sedan:



Side view:



Note the suicide doors:



And here are my favorite pics;





Someone left the window down a bit on a Bentley Coupe. So I stuck my card in the window and wrote a note saying " What if it rains? Call me if you want to trade this Bentley for Gold " I don't know if you can make it out in the pics.

Years ago I knew the RR-Bentley dealer in Houston. He was another larger than life Texas figure, Jerry J Moore, who is now dead. He had the dealership on Memorial Dr. and now the RR-Bentley dealership is owned by a very prominent Houstonian who moved it right next to his company headquarters.

I bet he wouldn't be happy about windows being left down on his Bentleys

I saw one on the highway in Germany a few weeks ago. I was as giddy as a little kid.

I saw a Nissan Figaro parked in front of Au Pied de Cochon this morning! Cute!

Another RR, but with a twist: The pictures are taken at a detailing shop that I use. The RR is not mine ( of course ), but belongs to a local Hip Hop celebrity ( Houston has more of those than I thought ). The car is pretty much a standard 2006 Phantom with one notable change: He replaced the standard RR wheels and tires with the ones above. They are something called Auto Couture and are 24". I asked how much they are? I was told 50K!!! Yeah, that's correct, $50,000! I hope he kept the standard RR wheels and tires

You're not sure if we can make it out? What do you think? It's like staring into the sun.

I'm betting those wheels are cubic zirconia.

Well might have been. They were not understated

In addition they had some sort of gyroscope mechanism ( or something like that ) that kept the RR logo in the center cap of the wheel always in the upright position ( as pictured ) . This would be even when driving too. So it appeared that the RR center cap logo was not revolving when the car was driving and always looked like it does in the picture below ( even when the RR was moving ).



For $12,500 per wheel you get a lot
