One kidney, arm, leg and any spare other bits you can still function without.

All the P8’s still haven’t been sold, there’s still some sitting at SVO unpainted ready to be bought. This is why they’ve released the touring version to shift more of them.

They are too expensive for what they are. A V6 Bentley is about the same price. Luxury and power all in one. OK fuel consumption is not good but I doubt the P8 will be a lot better if anything. I saw a beautiful blue Bently yesterday and it atttracted lots of looks too.

I still don't see why people are comparing it to a bloody Bentley???.
:roll:
They are entirely different cars both in nature and target owners.
One is a track-focussed nutter.
The other is a cross-continent cruiser.
A better comparison would be to compare the P8 to a Porsche GT3 or similar.

Just for info, early Bentley Continental GT's (the footballer one) are on autotrader now from about £16,000 upwards.

I was comparing what you can have for the money. I agree they are aimed at different markets and the XE higher powered road car is better value for money and will be more fun. Tight arse or not if I had the choice my money would be with the flying B.
