It’s Really NOT A Bentley
After possessing my 300C for 3 months, I like it as much as ever. I thoroughly recognize all the worrying faults that I want it didn’t have, yet after that I’ve never ever had an auto that I wouldn’t have actually upgraded somehow. However what I intended to say was, this cars and truck does NOT look like a Bentley. I saw all the current Bentleys up close at the LA program last weekend. They do not actually look similar to the 300C. If you haven’t contrasted them in person, discover the string below with the magazine post with side-by-side images. Honestly, the 300C is a far better looking cars and truck. Real, the Bentley has more cash in its natural leather and wood than Chrysler put in the whole vehicle, as well as has (of course) much better fit and also finish, but from the outdoors, the 300C has IMHO a better form. What I think is that the 300 appear like the typical person’s memory of what a Bentley resembles. The actual thing is not as nice as a memory. We bear in mind the very first time we saw one – looooong, loooong hood driving by, at some point complied with by a cabin, all regally turning nose up at the hoi polloi. Seeing one genuine, it looks really antique, and I indicate that in a poor 80’s style sort of method, not a sexy timeless old automobile type of method.
