Had this for the last couple of days but the weather here has been too bad to get out for any real shooting. Grabbed this shoot during a brief lull in the rain. Hope to have more to share in the next 2 days.

For those not familiar with this variant, it's their fastest current production car, 6L W12, 616BHP, 0-60mph in 4 seconds (not bad for a shade under 2.4 tonnes) and tops out at 204mph. You don't really discuss fuel economy with cars like this but suffice to say, it drinks like an Irishman with 10 arms :-)

Superb photo of a superb car !
I like the comparison between the consumption and an Irishman with 10arms ( I may laugh because here in France we have the same kind of "well-armed" guys... ;) )

To find your post about this Bentley is funny because I'm just preparing a thread about an other Bentley.
But you will see, it's not the same time...

First thing I have read on the interwebs in days that ACTUALLY made me laugh out loud.

Thanks!

I am SO stealing that...

Good one, but I'd crop off the sign.
