The New ‘Bentley Flying Spur’ Is Quite Spectacular, But As Far As I Am Concerned It Is a German VW!

by Anura Guruge



It breaks my heart, these once GLORIOUS British companies now under German or Indian ownership. Bentley part of VW and my BELOVED Jaguars part of Indian Tata Motors.

This new ‘Flying Spur’, like all Bentleys, is near magical in its presence and gorgeousness — BUT it is no longer ICONICALLY British. Aaahhh! Why or why? Why did we let this happen.

Yes, I salivated over it, not that I would ever pay that kind of money for a car. But, an old Bentley, when it was still a British Bentley, might still be on the cards at some point. SMILE.

Anywho …

Just wanted to share with you and also express my distress as to what has happened to Dear Bentley.

I was CRUSHED!

It HURT!

How could they do this to US? How could they do this to ME?

Drive up in an ugly, black KRAUT wagon. WTF!

Beautiful, majestic British cars everywhere else Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Damilers, Jaguars …

And then this DISGUSTING German monstrosity.

Harry …. What were YOU thinking with?

I will NOT dredge up their German antecedents. We are beyond that.

But, why … oh, WHY?

You have enough Bentley’s in the family.

This was, to I, the LOW point of the day.

I really was crushed. I had to have a swig of wine to regain my composure.

I hate German bloody cars.

I love British cars.


This was CLASS.

British PRIDE.

We have Bentley’s and they don’t get ANY BETTER than that.

Confused As To Why UK PM Theresa May Is Concerned About Trump’s New Tariffs — UK Hardly Makes Any Cars!

OK. To be fair, Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, did call on Thursday to talk with Trump about tariffs and OTHER matters (e.g., ISIS and N. Korea). So, that was before Trump had explicitly said that HIS TRADE WAR will involve levying a tax on ‘European‘ cars.

It was the TAX on ‘European’ cars — in particular BRITISH cars — that got me thinking … and then rather upset.

We, the Brits, no longer OWN many car brands! All of our ICONIC British cars companies/brands — Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Mini, Land Rover — are owned by FOREIGN entities, in some cases the dreaded, despicable Germans!

Aston Martin and Morgan are about the only ones that are not owned outright by foreign companies. This is so sad. Breaks my heart. That Rolls Royce/Bentley are owned by BMW/Volkswagen is beyond the pale and that my beloved Jaguar brand belongs to Indians makes me cringe.

Not sure where they get the $9.8 Billion in UK vehicle exports to the US. That must be the cars shipped from the UK. That does not mean all the money goes to the UK.

………for classics like the ‘climax plug’ & ‘seminal’ ….



There times when I get so chuffed and relieved that I am a Brit. This is my humor. This is what I live for. Bravo. Made my day. I did not, alas, find this. Though Bentley, ever hopeful, sends me e-mails about their latest cars and promotions, alas Aston Martin ignores me — as they should. No, I couldn’t even afford a used Aston, though Devanee now has it in her mind that we are going to buy a used Bentley or Roller in the next few years. She lives in hope.

I never understood why ads like this are considered ‘not American’.

P.S., I do know that this ad. is a fake but that doesn’t detract from its British connotations. It would only work with a British car.
