    Diving up the M1 between Luton and Toddington today when this drove past.
    Lucky for me the police did a rolling road block and I caught up with it. The guys inside even gave me a wave as I was snapping away.:D :D
    Excuse the quality as had to use my phone camera but it did look very impressive on the road...Honest !!!

    Wow, lucky you. That is one gorgeous car. I'd love to see it in the flesh. I saw a Bentley Continental GT on the M6 in the Lakes at the end of August, but didn't have my camera with me ...

    That's a big windscreen you have there in the C32 ;) .

    we got real close to a Continental GT yesterday - i.e sitting in it.

    As far as I am concerned the jury is out, sure, it says Bentley on the front but it lacked the opulence, space, finish that you would normally associate with the marque.

    For tall people the driving position is very claustrophobic and some of the trim is just plain tacky and some of the body panels felt a little flimsy

    I can think of better ways to spend 100k+ on a car.

    It,s a shame I could'nt get a piccy of the front but that is one low and long engine lid with the star laying quite flat.
    Made my day seeing that on the road... only place I thought I'd see one was at a motor show

    I also saw the same car yesterday! (M25)

    In the jam coming the other way (so that was you trying to keep up, eh?).

    Headlights on full, it was difficult to miss, at first I thought it was an SL with a body kit.

    Neat looking, though I didn't like the back end too much.

    Alas, I was in a recovery truck (with a company Focus on the back...).
