Bentley GT Exhaust Design Just Like Lexus!!

So I'm at work today and my boss decides to leave his Bentley GT in the B Lot shop for a couple days while it gets detailed.

I've seen this car very many times but have never taken the time to look at all the minor details.

After observing the exterior in its entirety, I got a closer look at the ''quad'' exhaust. As you all know, it's the two oval shapes in the back that appear to be ''dual'' exhaust.

So, as I'm kneeling down getting a close-up of the Bentley's exhaust design, I realize its truly a quad exhaust with two oval shapes surrounding them. They're completely detached JUST LIKE THE IS-F prototypes and the 08 Lexus LS430.

I was shocked to see that Bentley would go that route.

Anyone else ever seen this before? If you get a chance to, check it out and you might laugh.

the exhaust "covers" compliment the exterior in a better way. i think if bentley was trying to make the continental more of a "sports car" instead of a luxury cruiser, they would have probably taken those covers off with of course, a re-designed exterior.

of course, this is just all my opinion.

just a little observation i noticed when i was looking at my parent's flying spur.

hehe, the funny thing is that the Continental GT came out BEFORE the new LS and IS-F. You should be shocked LEXUS went that route!

Here are the pics of the Continental GT and GT Speed.

Neither one is dual oval exhaust.


Here's the IS-F.


And here's the actual exhaust of the production IS-F.
