The is sparkling in that aqua blue-like color. It is definitely a scene stealer.

I’m really excited on this convertible of Bentley that lots of pictures were taken when the rumor splotted on the net. Maybe the Mulsanne have the speed and the engine of that car seems too great that I know it have a V12 twinturbo but as the first Bentley convertible, i think this one will be the talk of the town car.

I didn’t think it looked that bad in the other color either. The blue does look nice though. It is quite the stately car that has presence and commands attention without being ostentatious.
