Impressive car. Bentley will sell a ton of these I am sure. Just like the previous generations.

Fast as ruddy DB11 on the Saschenring...Brilliant! Despite being no lightweight like the DB11.

Well it helps when it has all wheel drive. It's not like a Hellcat or an XJR

Too bad by the time I feel I have more than enough money to splurge on a Bentley it would be easily 15 years from now, and this model would have been obsolete. Most new cars by then will probably be electric :(

Just like many of the people who will drive them :D

80 kg lighter than Mk II. Remember the GT3 R is the lightest Bentley in 40 years and this is only 45 kg more.

Still British with a few German parts.

If it's fast and handles well the weight doesn't really doesn't matter. The Ford Pinto hatch is 366 pounds lighter than a Mazda Miata (2,015 lbs vs 2,381 lbs). Is the Pinto a track beast because it's super light... no

Plus there are benefits to higher weight such as better tire friction which means the tires to spin a lot less when accelerating. The GT3-R has the same 0-60 time of the F-type V8 (3.4 seconds) despite being 1090 pounds heavier and similar hp.

BTW an elephant weighs 6600-12000lbs.

But it handles poorly. weight is NEVER a benefit for traction. Grip is traction is divided by weight. Only clueless people who would think weight = grip. Coefficient of rubber friction decreases fractionally when weight increases.

Does not handle poorly compared to other cars in it's class. This is not a sports car, nobody will expect it to track with an R8. Next to a Rolls or S65 coupe it will handle just fine.

but not a great getaway bond car, more of a hookers special uber pick up car

Fastedee  1y ago @cosimo

Bad guys usually have big Fast cars like a Granturismo or Quattroporte so it'll get away fine. If it's a Brera wouldn't work up. a sweat.

"Bond car"? At 6'5" I bet Sean Connery would make it work. The other Bond actors would look to diminutive on screen in a bigger than life car like the Bentley GT.
