    Qu'importe, l'anglaise absorbe aussi bien les petits raccords que les grosses compressions...


    The anglaise in question being the Bentley, are these little and larger shocks it's absorbing?

    Any idea what is this paragraph is talking about?
    For me raccords have nothing to do with compressions...

    It says that the Bentley's suspension system deals as well with small oscillations as it does with big oscillations.

    Normally a suspension system would have a bias towards one type of road surface irregularity or else be a set at some compromise level.
    We must assume therefore that the Bentley has some sort of "intelligent suspension."
