Bentley has been the cornerstone of unadulterated British luxury for many years. The top-of-the-range Mulsanne might just break the bank with a price tag a shade under a quarter of a million pounds, but in terms of sheer opulence it has very few rivals.
Wealthy motoring enthusiasts who are more likely to take the wheel themselves might be surprised by the poise and agreeable handling of the Flying Spur. This large luxury saloon shares a chassis with the sportier Continental GT and can, if needs be, reach quite astonishing speeds.
The most surprising entry in the Bentley catalogue is the Bentayga, the manufacturer’s first SUV. This luxurious four-wheel drive car features an exquisite interior, bold Bentley styling and an engine with over 600hp – enough to haul it to 60mph from rest in just four seconds.
