Just saw some sort of semi-exotic car tonight, and wondering what it was.  The emblem was a B in black, white background, and then silver wings to the sides.

Lol, no wonder I've never seen one before!

It was a Bentley Continental GT (as far as I can tell) in a darker brown metallic.

Where do you live?



I probably see 5-10 a week. Though it may be the same one sometime, they are not at all uncommon in Atlanta.

Eugene, Oregon.... not many rich people here... at all.  Tongue  Think I've seen two Ferrari's and two Lambo's in my life, not to mention this being the first Bentley.

*sigh*, I need to get out on the road more!

Yeah, but I bet the cost of living is way down, comparatively.  Here in Eugene, the most basic house you can buy (1br/1bd) still costs $120k.

Still, tis surprising that there's not more around here than down there.

Very. I live in the city, so that helps and we have so many rappers and sports stars riding around showing off all the time.

Continental GT's are the choice for a lot of these rappers. I see them with big ugly rims all the time.

+1 on that. I can't stand the rims that I see on some of the cars/trucks down here. We were up at Lenox the other day, and there was a White Hummer H2 with (I'm not kidding) copper colored rims and trim sitting in the Valet Parking outside of Crate and Barrel. By trim, I am talking about the mirrors, door handles, a strip down the each side, the bumper, etc. Basically, if it were something that someone would normally put chrome on, this guy used copper.

Oh, and speaking of rappers, Puff Daddy, P-Diddy, Sean Puffy Combs (whatever his name is) almost hit us in his Maybach 2 months ago. Well, it wasn't really him, it was his driver. He was coming out of Justin's on Peachtree and I guess he didn't realize how long that car actually is. We followed him to some ghetto gas station to see if it was really him or not, it was. To bad he didn't actually hit me, I might have gotten something out of that one.

He also has the Maybach in this thread.

Sounds like some people in the neighborhood we are a part of. The really expensive houses in Eagle's Landing are like that. Lamborghini on this side of the garage, Ferrari on that side, Bentley in front of the door, Maserati  behind that, daily driver (which is usually an $80K luxury car) parked somewhere nearby....

You know, more money in any two cars than most people have in house and two cars combined.
