To everyone who votes Aston: if you buy one, your stealership is going to try to force you to buy one of these for $75,000:



Just something to... think... about.

As usual, you're an idiot. I know you're joking, but you're still an idiot.

Also the price conversion is worthless. Cars are much more expensive in Europe.

I think you've missed the point. This isn't just another update, this is actually the first truly sporting Bentley they've made in forever. It's an epic performer too.

I glanced over a few. Its impressive *for a bentley*. This thing would probably be as good on the track as that retarded BMW suv.

I'm tempted to change my vote to the Spyker, just because it's such a crazy-looking car.

i really couldn't care that its a bentely. the thing looks outdated and bulky...i could get a R8 V8 for half the price and be happier.

Oh I don't care about the badge appeal either. I'm just saying it's impressive for a Bentley...they don't normally make performance cars.
