The bluff front end isn't a great match w/ the tapering rear, IMHO, and the rear overhang is very, VERY long (although I guess the 1% want to take a ton of luggage w/ them)? I'm sure it's intended audience will love it.

Best Flying Spur so far. Very stately looking, very handsome.

It's awkward, heavy/flabby, and 15 years old looking.

It's a lot better than before, finally proper luxury car (non FWD) proportions; The detailing seems in a very un VAG way restrained and elegant, probably there is hope other brands will dial back the sea of creases and fake stuff as well.

Now if the headlights were a little different, it would be a full win.

Most tasteful Bentley model in a long time, I like it very much. Especially after the Bentayga.

It's nice and all, but Bentley needs an injection of modernness to their designs that they haven't seen since the first Continental GT

Given how the sedan market is imploding, this needed to be a sedan that broke the mold and caused a sensation in the way the Aston Martin Lagonda was a stunning expression of the 70s "Ital Design" look or the way the 1976 Seville caused heads to snap.

This is safe, dull, dated, and insufferably boring to look at. The current, about-to-be replaced S Class is more compelling to look at.

The Acura Precision Concept is the stylistic shot-in-the-arm remedy that the sedan world needs to rescue it from the styling doldrums ditto the Escala, ditto the Bertone B99. Too bad Acura, Cadillac, and Jaguar are too stupid to build them.

There is NO REASON that a Bentley must be thick and truck faced.
