How many Ferrari owners have a Bentley too?

So I was wondering since Ferrari is the Ultimate sports car, how many of us also have a Bentley which is the Ultimate Luxury car? I personally like the 1999-2007 Arnage which I am currently considering adding to my stable. It's a classy 4 door sedan and last of the real "Bentley's" before Audi took over.

I just got a 2004 Arnage T to replace the 1997 Turbo R that I am selling. The Arnage is so fast and smooth that you. The Turbo R drove more like a classic bus.

Talking It's great having both

Love the Bentley Gt (daily driver) it's like having a powerful elegant woman then come home to take out a crazy hot wild screamer (F430) it's the best of both worlds.

Here are some Arnage T interior shots, I love the turned aluminum dash and the diamond stitch leather.

Beautiful car. Much more elegant than the usual S-Class/BMW 7.

Not sure I would ever consider one, though. They seem to scream "I'M RICH!!" without having the motorsports cachet of a Ferrari.

Being in loud attention cars already in the fcar, i choose to go Lexus...very understanded, and i dont feel as guilty. As much as i love the bent...i took one out and found it to much for me as a daily driver. Maybe when i fully retire i will add...i guess you ahve to feel comfortable with it.

My Uncle owns an Arnage along with his Ferraris. It is fun to drive, feels a bit heavy but the twin turbos make up for that.

i thought about it. one of the problems i have with the continental gt (apart from some of the angles in which it doesnt look so good), is some of the other people that own it..............i may change my mind at some point though

My wife drives a GTC and loves it.

ross-I find the car a bit showy, but it's winning me over with the engine note, power and luxury - it's a sort of guilty pleasure.

i think they're awesome cars, never driven one, but know more than i probably should about them. (i've done a lot of research on bentley's and rollers) of the 3 rolls-royces i've driven, (none newer than 85) i think they're great cars, and definitely a great compliment to any collection.

I had a Bentley Salon 8 beater... does that count? For an older car with 131K miles it was still amazingly clean and reliable. I only put about 1500 miles on it while I owned it because it was just to big and pompous for me. The Bentley GT or Arnage are another story altogether... Would love one if I could afford it!
