You're Too Poor To Afford A Bentley Brooklands

Ah yes, the Bentley Brooklands. If you have to ask how much it costs, then you can't afford it. This leather-lined locomotive of an automobile is the essence of what a proper Bentley should be. It's exclusive: only 550 will be built. It's monstrously powerful: the 6.75L twin-turbo V8 makes 550bhp and an absurd 775lb-ft of torque. And since it's based on the old Bentley architecture and not a whored-out Volkswagen platform, it's hand-crafted and handsome too. But don't think that because it's a sleek 2-door that it's not practical, because even your rear-seat passengers have their own doorhandles. In almost every way, this limited-production coupe is the epitome of old-money cool. Pull up to the yacht club in this, and you'll make that Maserati Quattroporte Collezione Cento look downright silly.

A Beautiful Car, no doubt. However, I am finding the posh accents a bit infuriating. Yes, I know this is as British as anything (still owned by Volkswagen though), but it seems that anyone with a posh accent is classy, rich, elegant. Madonna has picked up a posh British accent lately, and she if far from classy, elegant, and tasteful (though she is very wealthy).
