Somebody buying a Bentley Brooklands isn't so concerned with how it performs, how it stacks up to the competition or how much it costs. They're far more taken by the Bentley-ness of the whole thing, that je ne sais quoi, a certain indescribable quality that you just can't put your finger on, lest the car's owner release the hounds...so you'd better get your own.

Put yourself in that mindset before you watch the following video. Imagine you've got all the money and taste in the world and ignore the notion that the Continental GT is the better performer, because the "baby Bentley" is just so nouveau riche. Now pour yourself a brandy, light up a cigar and enjoy what amounts to little more than some black and white footage of a land yacht accompanied by some acid jazz...jaaaazzzz!

      Comme ça AMGoff, tu serait assez naïf pour croire que le seul français parlé sur cette Terre est celui que tu as apris en classe? Désolé de te décevoir.

        It's what we call "Joual" in Québec, to take different words from different languages and francize them, "fitter" is the verb "to fit" converted in french. "Je fit, tu fits, il fit, nous fittons, vouz fittez, ils fittent"

        Then please my friend, enlighten me as to what "fitter" translates to in English?

      That video would be much more entertaining if the wipers moved in sync to the music.

      I like my Bro.-in-law's Bently Azur much better. But, nothing beats his Maybach.

      if u like this type of music check out the series of cd's called "Hotel Costes". I believe this song is the first one actually, by a group called DePhazz...

      Des racines francaises Noah? Ou si c'est seulement pour fitter avec l'aura un brin prétentieuse que dégage la Bentley? ;-)

        Dude... leave the babel-fish alone, you're impressing no one. It's been years since I've been in French class and yet I can still tell you can't speak it. English does not translate directly into French very well.

      Actually I like jazz but it is boring watching a Bentley doing nothing.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Lol, I still want one anyway.

      Suddenly, I feel much better about the fact that I don't have a Bentley.
