    Bentley Conti BY624

    was just googling info on the Bentley Conti GT replacement.........no question please  and amongst the things i've read are that it might shift from A8 platform to Panamera platform.

    does not sound too out of this world for me now that Porsche is under VW umbrella.

    anyone have more info ?

    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

     you must be kidding intouch, a Conti doesn't sound like you at all.


    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

    in fact i have been eying it for quite a while and was gonna go for one when the supersports came out.

    2 reasons really kept me off.....its obvious that a replacement must be around the corner and secondly age-wise it can be tricky. at 38 it might not seem 'right' and i am not paris hilton either

    the main rason is that our roads are not really fit for real performance cars. i honestly do not remember when i took the gt2 for a spin last.

    the turbo gets used as it's far more compatible with our roads. therefore high performance gt's really start to make sense to me. i am not at all tempted by the italian offerings.

    time will tell.....

     well what about an Aston? 


    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

     

    i love the vantage.....but unfortunately no aston dealer in our country.

    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

     Thats bad news, i'm sure importing it on your own would be way too expensive. i encourage you to just keep your options open, then again maybe its just me not liking the Conti. but thats just a bit personal 


    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

    it wouldn't be more expensive to self-import than to buy locally. import tax remains the same.

    what would i do if i get a CEL ? i'd have to ship the car abroad ?

    dealers here don't really stock spare parts for exotics anyway. btw a 911 is exotic here.

    but they at least have trained mechanics and diagnosis equipment.

    there is no service for my superformance cobra either. then again it does not even have a diagnosis plug

    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

     well is there a bentley dealer over there? cause if you are going to go through all the trouble i'd say just go for the vantage instead.

    OT: please repost some pics of the cobra, i think i was a newbie back then when you were getting the car and was not paying much attention to the forum but would love to see it now.


    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

    yes, we have a local bentley dealer. they are also the local ferrari, jaguar and range rover dealer.

     

    here's the cobra:

    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

     Thanks for the pics and the video is great too. I suppose that if you already have a Bentley dealer it would make services and repairs easier to deal with, why wont you go for the italians though?


    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

    Pity you don't have a Aston Martin dealer. The Vantage or DB9/DBS would be the perfect car for you by the sounds of it. I use the V12 quite regularly. It's so comfortable! Would be on par if not even better than the Carrera S on a comfort point of view.


    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

    mike, i would really love a v12 vantag. it's one rally cool car but useless without dealer support........

    let's see what the conti gt series 2 will be like. whereas compared to the vantage it's really a barge.

    Re: Bentley Conti BY624

    I agree, rather wait. I too would not buy a car I intend to use on a frequent basis without dealer support.

    Yep, it would suck if your car broke and you'd have to take the bus for a month Smiley
