    Re: Canary Wharf Motorexpo 6-12 June 2011

    A couple of years ago, I did a session with Bentley similar to the one I did with MB SLS. The difference was they did not have actual models but renderings. They spent a couple of hours quizzing us regarding the future shape of Bentley.

    What I found interesting is as a group we invariably opted for a more futuristic sporty design. Amazingly, when Bentley surveyed their present owners, the majority preferred the older present day design and rebelled against significant change. Thus, you get this dated look which will satisfy their present owners. I guess when you think about it it should not be a surprise. All one needs to do is look to Porsche owners.

    The Bentley look enticed many new owners in new markets, where people didn't know the traditional look. This must mean something.

    I like the new continental, IMO it fixed a lot of small details that made a huge difference overall.
