Went Bentley SS

Pulled the trigger on the SS Convertible.

Have two solid offers on the 612 - so it's looking like she is gone but the more likely buyer has an Enzo and Aperta so it's going to a good home.

Hoping to have the SS next week

I know I know - but servicing two modern Ferrari's by a dealer 300 miles away is just too much work.

kinda sad, really

which SS convertible? was it at STLM or...?

if you sell the 612 to the Enzo owner, you need to require a ride in the Enzo as a condition of the sale!

Fantastic to hear Doug, looking forward to hearing all about it and seeing the pics....great car, you'll be very surprised by just how good these cars are!

I hope you went for the white convertible with the linen and Newmarket tan seats as that was an absolute stunner....

Delighted for you!

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!

I will post some pics tomorrow - out of state as usual never even been in a Bentley let alone driven one.

You loved the 612 - so did I but it was time.

SS - 3.5 0 - 60 200 mph drop top - fastest 4 seater convertible that will most likelly ever be produced.

The way I see it - I own the two best spiders in the world

612 was a great car but given all the BS with STLM, LFSC, and FNA, I don't blame you.

but you CANNOT under any circumstances sell the 16M

Bentley SS isn't a bad way to go....

You hit the nail on the head - 612 has been gone 13 weeks - friggin ridiculous.

The 16M has no replacement - never will.

I would like to tell you how great the SS is - but I haven't a clue besides you tube videos.

Thought long and hard about the Aston line up - but given their financials and interior room - nope.

Need to go see the watch selection.

But nope - more like this .... most likely keep it less than a year.

I am a deal guy - couldn't pass this one up.

Less than 400 made worldwide.

Love it, love it, love it.....I'm now on the look out for its twin RHD Brother, I'll let you know how it goes!

If it rains with you, I'll throw in a Bentley Brolly with all the goodies you bought from my eBay Store - would that be of any use?

Thanks Peter - it should be a blast.

I thought it came with Brolly's.

I am not done yet - lots of good stuff left.
