Summary:

Superb

Faults:

The costs of maintenance and service at the Portuguese agent (SIVA) are incredible. For a small revision I paid close to 7,000 pounds!!!

(Just for checking if the fuse of the electric clock was good or not, I paid 68 pounds..., oil filter - 650 pounds..)

Portuguese owners of RR/Bentley: when driving near Azambuja, pass far away from Bentley Lisbon.

General Comments:

It's real a car that gives me pleasure to drive.

Of my 17 car collection, the is the one I like most.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Better correct your engine capacity: it's 6230cc unless a Chev engine or something else has been substituted.

You really should learn to repair a fuse yourself and this would eliminate a great deal of your pain.

Well, if the guy owns 17 different cars, money shouldn't be the problem ;)
