I have decided that there is one attribute I value in a car more than any other. It is that said car, be it large or small, fast or slow, expensive or cheap, knows what it is for. This also explains my aversion to all those awful crossover SUV neither-fish-nor-fowl things with which the new car market is these days abrim.
And this Bentley knows precisely what it is for. Now, as it happens, somewhat visually ostentatious convertibles are some distance from being my kind of car, but that doesn’t really matter.
This Bentley is for people who want to be able to travel long distances in great comfort to some far-flung, sunny location and then drop the roof and strike exactly the right note when they get there. In this regard it is very hard to fault indeed.
