Since my dad lives in Florida and flies up most holidays, he has to get a rental car to drive around. It’s always a base model economy car, like a Toyota or Hyundai. This Thanksgiving, a Bentley Flying Spur just happened to have a lack of weekend plans, so we told him this holiday he would be very thankful for his rental car. Because what better way to impress your family than driving a Bentley all around Minneapolis on Thanksgiving weekend?
After showing it to my dad and letting him take a few minutes to marvel at its beauty, everyone loaded inside. Instead of only taking the Bentley to special places, we decided to real world test it and drive it everywhere we needed to go. A few questions that summarize a Bentley Flying Spur: Does it fit in a compact car parking spot? No. Will it get good gas mileage? No. Will your mom call it a “perfect place to be”? Yes.
Every day we got in the Flying Spur, we found something new. We figured out how to put the blinds up on the rear windows, because heaven forbid someone in a Toyota looked at us! On the touchscreen for the rear passengers (you read that right), we figured out you could control almost everything in the car, from music volume to temperature to watching the speed. While driving around, we indulged ourselves with a Bentley version of a hot stone massage, which includes turning the seat massagers and heaters on (which are even in the back!). Then there was the enjoyment of watching someone drive by and do a double take when they realized this was in fact a car that cost over $200,000.
In summary, if you ever want to impress your family for the holidays, show up in a Bentley.
