Bentley Continental GT

close to Ryerson Campus & Dundas Square

That day I also saw a VW phaeton and the new A8! Had to mention cause it was my first time seeing the phaeton.

haha, yea, not many profs pull anywhere close to the amount of money needed to buy those.. but then again, a lot of my profs owned multi-million dollar companies.

that car looks like a fat CLK...

and that's the whole appeal for the car.

some people just like to enjoy the luxury, without being notice. and can be careless about the popularity of his car.

^^^ if we were talkin bout say, a sunfire for like, 40K then yeah, that would be a scam...but for people who are in the market for buying a continental GT the price tag isnt a significant issue...personally i wouldnt mind payin 250,000 to be able to say "i drive a bentley"

i saw the phaeton a while ago (Winston Churchill & Thomas), and i think it was necessary for VW to make a high-end flagship car in order to stay competitive with the rest of the German marques

i also saw the A8 in the same area with the 19-inch wheels, and its absolutely amazing
