June 2 It may be Bentley’s fastest motor but there’s still only one way to drive a GT Speed. S-l-o-w-l-y.
After a week steering this behemoth it feels almost rude to suggest anything as vulgar as performance. That’s for Porsche 911s and those nasty red Ferraris.
No, a Bentley is for going gently. Soaking up the atmosphere, listening to Test Match Special on the Naim radio and generally revelling in the warmth (stop laughing) of a balmy British June.
Indeed, if Andy Murray wins Wimbledon and England beat Pakistan at Lords next month, all I need is a GT Speed to make it the perfect summer.
Right I’m off to Woking collect another British slice of madness – the McLaren 650. More tomorrow…
