    Reminds me of an Audi Q7.

    Although I think the Q7 is better on the eye than the Bentley!

    Can't wait for Clarkson and Co to get their hands on one and 'put it through its offroad paces' - and then hand it to The Stig.

    ............................... and on that bombshell

    Let's face it , the only off roading it will do is two wheels on the pavement opposite Harrods.

    bear in mind the kerbs in Knightsbridge, and your correct assumption, low profile tyres (and therefor vulnerable alloys) would seem to be a major design fault for the situation for which the car is intended? :rolleyes:

    You can see the Cayenne appearance of which it's based. I rather like the new Cayenne. It's not grown too large like the others in that segment

    Still ugly & ostentatious.
    I can see why the arabs would go for it. Except they should have put hair round the bumper.

    Well the ones where i used to live would spend half their lives stressing over their 60-70 hours a week job and the other half stressing over whether their cars were new/posh enough/kids were at a good enough private school (despite the local government ones being the best in the country) and generally how to waste their money to keep ahead of others (women watering the flowers in designer outfits!)

    They were kind enough to make suggestions to my parents as to when they should buy a new car or what the latest designer gimmick was, even though my parents retired at 50 and, unlike them, actually owned their house (not on a 90% mortgage).

    I think i'd rather have a meaningful life of relative poverty but enjoyment rather than a new Bentley 4x4 on the drive and the other nouveu riche accoutrements...
