"This is a complete one off. It's been built from the ground up exclusively for Her Majesty the Queen. It's the first time ever that a state limousine has ever been designed - interior, exterior, chassis - from the ground up for a member of the British royal family."

"It's always something very special if you do a car for a king or queen, and specially for the English queen. This is a great car, six metres long, weighing four tonnes, and it has impressive acceleration."

Britain's Queen Elizabeth received a special Jubilee gift on Wednesday - a new state limousine courtesy of the Bentley motor company.
The vehicle was crafted by hand and took two years to build. It's worth around 250-thousand dollars.
Bentley is one of the most famous names in British motoring, although it's now owned by the German company Volkswagen.
The new limousine will be used for the first time on Tuesday when the Queen leaves St Paul's Cathedral after a Thanksgiving service to mark 50 years on the throne.

Edward Benkert FOOL! If Diana’s grave is a mess, that is ENTIRELY Earl Spencer’s fault (Diana’s brother)
If you are going to make STUPID and crass statements like that, at least know who owns the place where she is buried....
Francés Besaya the engine is made in Crewe actually and the gearbox is made by a German company because it’s outsourced and one of the best. Not because VW make it as they don’t. And the suspension is bentleys own
I see what you mean. But correct me if I am wrong. The engines, gearboxes and suspension (arguably the most important elements in a car) Bentley use are sourced form Germany. The Flying Spur and Conti were made in the glass factory in Dresden along side the Phaeton. I would hardly call that "a few things made in another country". As far as I am concerned, the previous Continental was a thoroughy German car, in fact it might as well been called Phaeton Coupe with a proud big shiny VW logo on the front grille.
Francés Besaya they share technology and expertise, realise though that the people working on the car are in Britain. The same way JKR is owned by TATA, they don’t do anything but finance the company and everything is done here in the U.K., however in VW;a case yes they do share more things with the other brands however it’s not making the car German given it’s mainly a few things made in another country such as the chassis or whatever. It’s the same for Rolls Royce
Yes, in the same way that Seat is Spanish or Lamborghini is Italian. What they all have in common is that they are owned by the VW Group in Germany and often share their engineering and strategic decisions are taken within the context of the whole group. Hence , whilst the Bentayga and Q7, for example, share many elements, they are carefully tailored to satisfy different segments of the market.
Really? Another car? For free? Well, it's a good thing, because the other 67 cars she has are all falling aprt, poor woman. We can't have her driving around in a 2 year old Benley piece of junk. The royal family is so deserving, one more free car makes a huge difference to someone with a mere existance. Just look at that pallace, it's deplourable, how embarrassingly small. I'm guessing 50,000 square feet of granite, exquisite living space. They need another castle just to store all the gold, jewels, and money. That free custom bentley was well deserved. Why help people that are starving, they are used to not eating. Good job.
We have a well balanced society. I'm so proud, aren't you?
The crown estates pay for the Royal Family. Also, Harry’s wedding brought one billion plus to the UK economy. Tax payers pay 65p (33 cents) a year for the Queen. Politicians on the other hand are the burden to the taxpayer. You also do not comprehend the amount of money that the people of the UK receive from the various charities of the Royal Family.
Not when the recipient is the most famous woman on the planet and the eldest and longest serving head of state in the world (head of 15 countries BTW). A woman who is so respected that US Presidents shit themselves when she enters the room. You can't buy marketing that lucrative as she will be seen in this car over all the world for decades - I'm surprised they didn't pay HM a billion in addition to giving her fleet of them. You have a lot to learn about selling!
It's PUBLICITY for Bentley, and also free advertising. Im from a far away land and I notice this car whenever I see the queen being driven in it. You underestimate the value of free advertising. Also I assume it showcases UK's motor industry to the world every time the Queen is photographed with it.
Tribe of Joseph it’s a gift from Bentley. If anything you are the tranny, at least the queen actually brings something to the UK and the economy. They are what add billions to it and you are a fool if you think they sever no purpose
A Golden Jubilee is the fiftieth anniversary of a significant event and a Diamond Jubilee is the sixtieth anniversary of a notable event, especially a sovereign's accession or the foundation of an organization.
a ks Though the company is German-owned, Bentley cars are built in the U.K. It is good marketing for the British monarch to use one, because of the "halo effect" of prestige it gives the brand. And in the super-luxury market, prestige is everything. So to sum up, the Queen is participating in this "gifting" event because British jobs depend on this British car's success in the marketplace.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
