The Rolls or Bentley thread made me think about how these cars have their own identity now. Up until the Turbo R cars of the late 80's Rolls and Bentley had virtually identical cars for much of the 70's and 80's.
The Corniche for example really did not seem to offer anything other than a more rounded grille for some customers and a sharper one for others. The Bentley became a Continental in 1984.
I have a model of this car almost exactly
Most people chose the Rolls Royce, my personal choice would be the Bentley personally, especially the limited Turbo models.Production
