Every day, I’ll pick a brand and choose one car I think represents the pinnacle of their design - not just the looks, but technology, engine, and desirability as well. The car had to be sold new in the USA.

Round 5

When I think of Bentley, one car always comes ahead of all the other models. It is a proper 4 door Bentley, with 4 proper doors and a boot, Mulliner designed interior, 6 3/4 L V8 turbo engine with adequate torque and horsepower... I present to you the Bentley Arnage, especially the last ones made, Bentley Arnage Final Series

Arnage - in my opinion - is the last of the old school Bentleys, and it is the best Bentley. I don’t mind the new ones at all - but they are all just too nouveau riche.

You’d drive this in your Savile Row suite and Crocket and Jones shoes, pull out a James Smith and Sons umbrella, and walk (never run) to the hotel for tea. /myideaofanenglishgentleman
