Remember feeling from the Chekhov «Cherry orchard». From the stories of Bunin. Or from the «White household troops» and «Doggy heart» of Bulgakov. Yes, as early as the last century on the map of Europe there was Russia inhabited not simply by \"electorate\", but by the different estates of people, keeping traditions and living on the, special moral criteria. They were mowed by revolution, sparing neither principles, nor machines of those years nor drafts of Russian «Russo-Balt» in concert.
If to look around
Let a proud brand back be bought on to Cornu by the prudent managers of Volkswagen. But if \"Russo-Balt\" now bought anybody from Germans, to produce prestige cars, I would not be disordered personally - so, this name yet costs something.
Prestige of the English brand was mortgaged yet at the beginning of the last century, when machines with winged \"B\" on an emblem not once went out winners from competitions on endurance on the ring of Sarte, simpler speaking, in Le Mans.
Mark\'s back, producing excellent sporting machines for veritable gentlemen, was bought Rolls - Royce in 1930 and on years took the place \"in the tail of comet\". But it does not talk that all glory was reached Rolls - Royce. Two brands divided her in half in an interesting manner.
\"You can lead Bentley, but in Rolls - Royce you are driven\" - so defined the features of each of the prestige motor vehicles Englishmen. Thus, the brand of Bentley became scanter intended for more active and young representatives of the establishment, and Rolls - Royce. is it needed to explain? Nobleness of paints and materials, moderation and harmony, animated and completeness - all that distinguishes work of art from mass consumer goods, is in Bentley. But in this \"museum\" of classic neighbors with a modern - a bright-polished metal replaced more usual to the proprietor of such machine noble wainscots.
Nevertheless, classic proportions and form of front panel remained former - her all distinguishes a minimalism and restraint of emotions also. And - to no fancifulness!
This car compels to reflect. About the future in that already there will not be such machines - in fact with arrival of the German management and changing of priorities, a company Bentley Motors is takes a course on the decline of cost of cars. Old, and they are produced from 1991, Continental of place in a productive line will not leave already - he will be occupied by produced on the platforms of VW of machine, like new Continental GT. 150 thousand euro against former 335 thousands! Such is advantage in the cost of new, \"compatible\" machines. But old customers will go away with the new breathing.
