According to cars.com, there is only one Pink GT in America. Congratulations Neil or should we say Paris Hilton?

Why not an Austin Martin DB9 or something that actually looks good?

Very close to the truth. California is one of those states where you can put a deposit on a car and when it shows up, if you hate it, the dealer has to give your money back.

I had dinner with the general manager of one of the local Porsche dealers on Saturday. I asked him if he had a lot of orders for the new 918. He told me he won't take them. A customer has to put 400k down on the car and the dealer would come up with the other 400k. Now the customer can cancel at anytime so the dealer could end up stuck tying up all their cash. They said the profit on the car is only 30k where as on a 911 they make 18k on the front and back end. With California law it doesn't pay ordering these cars for people.

I'm sure the Bentley is very pretty.

Dealer: well Neil, here's your metallic pea Bentley.
Neil: Ed, uh, this is not the car I ordered. I distinctly ordered the Antarctic Blue Super Sports Wagon with C.B. and optional rally fun pack.
Dealer: you didn't order metallic pea? I could have sworn you ordered metallic pea.

haha Ok I'm back at work, just got this new Gallaxy note II phone so it took some time to sync everything up. The CGT that I got was custom ordered by the General Manager and it just came off the delivery truck last week, so no, it was not one that was sitting on the lot for a year and needed to get sold. The 2013's (new body style) just started comming in a few months ago and they only had about 8 cars in the premises but I got REAL lucky with this one because I'm certain it would had been sold if I waited any longer. It's EXACTLY the color I wanted. Very similar to my porsche, its called Brodger, a metallic grey. And yes, it is the only 2013 CGT in North America with this color. Remember Bentleys are hand made and are limited in numbers, not like porsche etc. And you don't see the new body style that often, even here in LA. Mine came fully loaded with every option that matters on a Bentley. 2 tone interior, massage seats, Twin Turbo charged V8 at 500 hp. I absolutely love these rims, a $6k option. Total price was $195k with $15k in extra options. These pics were taken while they were detailing it for me before I left the dealership. I felt bad but the GM, sales guy, detailer all stayed at the dealership until 11 just for me. It took them 3 hours to detail the car, while I waited they gave me a free car cover, some Bentley clothing / hats etc. They even bought my porsche from me at a fair price. I got to keep my HRE's rims so I can sell them later on. The car itself is very quiet. Last nite I went straight to a local club, parked up front and it got a lot of attention. It was cold so I left early but I think my Bentley looks bad ass. I'm happy, I'll keep it for a year or 2, than sell it and get mabye Mclaren MP12-4C or mabye Aventador or Rolls Royce.

I will take some interior pics later, its like a tuxedo schematic, looks like a concept car inside, eucalyptus wood interior, deep pile carpets, ventilated, heated, massage seats fully adjustable, embroidered headrest, full spare tire, power trunk (can't believe this is even an option), adjustable air suspension (can lift front for going into driveways or lower it in sport mode) Does 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. Top speed 192 mph. CGT's now have a rear spoiler thats pops up like porsche 911. Love this feature, kept it up at the club.
