A truly beautiful motor vehicle Peter that goes as good as it looks!

Drove a neighbors GTC a couple of years back. Delightful to drive and IMO the must stunning dash and interior ever made. Whoever was responsible needs a medal. 😎
PS. He swapped it for a Tesla.
 
Very very nice.
 
Shouldn't be jealous but I AM 😂
 
Love it👌🏻👍🏻
 
How does the ride quality and refinement of the Bentley compare to a CL/S Class Coupe?
Very differant, much better in Comfort mode and very noticeable in Sport. A much better set up than the CL, it also could have a lot to do with it being FWD. The build quality is far superior than Mercedes.

Thanks. So the ride quality is much better in the Bentley, compared to the CL?

How does the S Class Coupe compare to the Bentley?

Yes the Bentley is better, I've never driven S Coupe which replaced the CL.

Thanks. Did you test drive the W12? If so, how did it compare your V8 S?

And how have the general reliability and maintenance costs been since your ownership?

I am considering one as a daily driver - with an annual mileage of around 3000.

I'm not a great fan of the V12 or W12, i much prefer V8's. If you look at all the comparisons veviews the V8 comes out better, re handling and mpg. We use the Bentley mainly for touring europe every year ( 3/4000 miles ) and get on average 30 mpg, that's due mainly because the engine is cutting from 8 to 4 cylinders on the motorway.
I've had it for 4 years no problems, just service every year. Had the front discs/pads last year, pleasantly surprised ( £ 893.00 ) so all good. We are off to Spain/France in September for 3/4 weeks.
