Where Bentleys Roam
Rancho Santa Fe, California - While much of the country is dealing with the latest cold front and snow dump of the never-ending winter of 2014, we are with Bentley in this upscale enclave in the foothills north of San Diego to drive the 2014 Continental GT V8 S coupe and convertible. The people who live here, in lushly landscaped gated communities nestled among orange groves and equestrian fields, are Bentley customers. We see two privately owned Continentals—one coupe, one convertible—on the road outside the Rancho Valencia resort. We encounter even more Bentleys during our three-hour drive to Palm Springs, where we lunch at Twin Palms, the mid-century modern ranch home once owned by Frank Sinatra. If Ol’ Blue Eyes were still with us, one could imagine that a Bentley Continental GT might reside in his driveway, too.
