The Road to St. Moritz

Can't you just hear the 'scrunch' of tyre on crisp, freshly fallen snow? Clean air, sparklingly white snow and brilliant blue skies: winter-time in the Alps, particularly just before Christmas, is magical...

And if the destination is the Swiss Alps, it's that much more special. As we near the holiday period we thought it would be fun to drive Bentley's latest eight–cylinder convertible over the Julier Pass into the Engadin and its jewel, St Moritz.

It reminds your Editor of a similar trip in the Jensen FF and Ferrari FF earlier this year. We'll be re–visiting this, and other popular stories from 2012, in a special newsletter on New Year's Eve.
