    Default Bentley brakes ....... Small moons

    Parked next to this Bentley speed thingy today (evidently driven by the quintessential late middle aged successful early retired bloke who had stopped to pick up his daily newspaper)

    Then I got a glimpse of the calipers and discs ........

    Seriously pics don't do the real life size of these justice, they must put you through the windscreen ....

    When your car needs to perform and also weigh the same as the moon then physics dictates large discs and calipers

    415mm Discs I believe (16.5ins)

    I saw a couple of McLaren 650S's (probably, all their models look the same to me ) a few weeks ago, basically the entire of the inside of the rim was taken up with brake disc!

    These Bentley ones pretty much filled the rim!
