Axl Rose to Pony Up Tens of Thousands for Battered Bentley

Axl Rose
will fork over $53,000 to cover some serious Bentley damage -- but even though it seems like a lot ... the "Guns 'N Roses" singer actually got a nice discount.

Axl was sued by Bentley Financial Services last year -- which claimed Rose leased a $192K Bentley Flying Spur back in 2005, and proceeded to beat the crap out of it ... eventually returning it with damages and fees totaling $73,000.

But last week, Axl finally settled the case -- agreeing to cough up $53,000 to call it even.

Which is a great deal -- because if you do your math, that's a 27% discount.
