Love the part where they stop by the submarine dock. There's something about these left over docks that spooks me.

Quite surprised with all that rust and beat up shape, it is still floating.

And the Mig 19 graveyard... truly impressive from a bygone era. It was in some ways befitting of the Thatcher era middle aged men paying homage to the Gipper on his 100th birthday.

Poor Bentley for not giving them a car to test at the last moment. They really should have expected a backlash like that. I don't know what they were thinking or maybe the new Bentley is really so bad, that they'd rather be made a joke of than give it for comparison.

What backlash? Bentley wouldn't give them the ugly Mulsanne... so I see no backlash; just a pos for a 3rd driver.
