The headlights and the bottom grille somehow cheapens the look. The class that oozes out of the older Bentley models is missing due to all that chrome IMO. [Edited 2009-08-21 22:20:52]
Life only makes sense when you look at it backwards.

Looks like Bentley didn't want to wait for the Chinese knock-off copy so they decided to come out with their own version instead. Does it have a throne in the back as well?
Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

Not bad... not bad at all. Definitely worlds better-looking than the current Bauhaus-inspired Rolls-Royce.
Let us hope that on the new Bentley the interior designers who are responsible for the doors are allowed to communicate with the interior designers who are responsible for the dashboard so that the two finished assemblies don't look like they were designed for entirely different vehicles as is the case on the current Rolls-Royce.

It looks like Bentley doesn't have any idea of what it should be or do. I think the new Mulsanne is not very nice. I much prefer Rolls Royce.

Quoting Phoenix9 ( Reply 1): The headlights and the bottom grille somehow cheapens the look.
Same here. I find the headlights really ugly and they spoil the general look of the car.

It looks like
VW still hasn't gotten over losing RR to BMW so they're coming up with their copied version of the Phantom...
You got screwed. Get over it and bring the Arnage back or your own original design.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

I like it! I think it is beautiful! The Rolls-Royce Phantom is a little too much of a brick IMO. This one is more elegant.
The RR Silver Ghost coming looks very good too!
edit: I do agree that something isn't right about the headlamps though.. [Edited 2009-08-22 04:15:43]

Those headlights are hideous!

Not the best looking car, and not a steritypical Bentley either. But I'd take one. It does bear look quite a bit like the new Jag
XJ, which when it came out I said looked like a Bentley so go figure. I think that this looks more like the XJ than the XJ did the old Bentley though.

Honestly, the only thing bentley about it is the back end. Everything else looks like something Chrysler would make.
RR 1, Bentley 0. Although I'd have this over the Maybach.

I like it very much, can't wait to see this one in person. I think it would look great with a two-tone paint job.
