The Beautiful Cars of Summer: 2012 Bentley Continental GT

The glacier white Bentley Continental GT parked in the driveway inspired me to reflect on how a car can be transformative. Why should any sensible investor spend money on a car north of $200,000 in this torrid economic climate? Transformation must be part of the package.I watched pedestrians as they spied the car — they paused in mid-step, and squinted.

If they were particularly bold they tiptoed closer for a sneak-peak. This is part one of the Bentley-owner experience — the looks you get from the common man. Then I eased myself into the driver’s seat.

Part two is what happens when you drive a Bentley. You become boss. Driving any kind of Bentley is likely to boost the confidence of a reasonably competent driver. The sheer weight alone (5478 pounds) makes a Bentley easier to handle than a slimmer, leaner friskier sports car (3946 on the Ferrari FF). Yet, the power and speed are easily accessible to a novice driver (552 HP and a 6.0 liter W-12 engine.)
