It looks worse in the metal...

Also, do don't get an idea of the vastness of it from the pictures. It's really quite big.

Everything that is wrong with the World is right there in that picture.

What a joke.  Doubtless the mean streets of Knutsford will be full of the damn things soon enough.

In a world of SUV sameness they have managed to make something the same yet horrifying.

I actually think Bently should make an SUV (it makes more sense than Porsche or Maserti making one), however they should NOT make one that looks like this!

Apparently they have been working on it since summer 2010 too, so not even a rushed job!

I assume it is a Cayenne underneath hence looking so similar from the front doors back.

I had a go of a Cayenne Turbo once, ugly mofo but laugh out loud fast and handled like a car that size had no right to.

Right idea, wrong execution. Rare misstep from VAG.
