    The front styling is vaguely reminiscent of the R-Type Continental from the '50s

    What I see of the spy shots looks nice.

    Not crazy about it. Bentley has lost something in my eyes. Everybody has a Continental GT or flying spur and there are more exciting options out there than the Arnage. Now they will release this car which doesnt seem to be all that impressive. The only car I like from them is the gorgeous Brooklands. I think they need to get slightly more aggressive with their designs.

    ^Yeah, I kind'a feel the same way ...but I will wait to see what this new model looks like in its entirety before I dismiss it. The front is certainly different.

    The new Rolls-Royce will be its closest competitor.

    To each his own - I guess I am more of a traditionalist though.

    I am for interiors! I need soft leather and dark wood and i have an appreciation for traditional dials. As for exteriors, I like them to be modern.

    I wonder what will become of Maybach.

    Do you think Daimler will enter this segment with a baby Maybach?

    Those front lights on the Bentley are nasty. [​IMG] Hate them.

    I'm more disturbed by the fact they're trying to make them a bit more sporty and cars that are fun for you to drive. If you get a RR, you shouldn't be doing the driving. [​IMG]

    I love it
    +1 ...especially with most Lux sedans doing nothing more than looking somewhat the same.
