    Bentley Barnato GT



    Named after Woolf Barnato, the most famous of the "Bentley Boys" - a group of wealthy racing drivers in the 1920s - the Barnato GT is an imaginary four-door coupé for Bentley based on the Continental GT platform.

    It would cost a few grand more than the Flying Spur due to its sportier design and driving dynamics, making it a truer rival to Aston Martin's Rapide. The Flying Spur is the laid-back lazy cruiser of the range, while the Barnato GT is the fastback racy bruiser. And although the new, lower roofline does cut into some rear-seat headroom, practicality has been given some consideration in the form of a hatchback rear opening - suitable for carrying anything from your Waitrose shopping bags to your Manchester United away kit.

    Agreed. I am sure Wayne Rooney and the rest of the Manchester United players will enjoy theirs.

    On that subject, I'd like to see Bentley offer a new halo super sedan. Basically, a Mulsanne-based sedan with more dramatic, sportier styling (still elegant of course, such as with this sedan) and better overall performance. Would probably have to get a special version of the W-12 or such to make that happen. Anyway, you get the bespoke insane luxury of the Mulsanne but even more performance and exclusivity. Figure 800+ horsepower.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.
