2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed - Photo by C4PT41N SL0W
This might be the most beautiful 5,000-plus pounds of metal and awesome you will ever see. Here’s a luxury car dripping in opulence that can take a down a supercar on the drag strip. The Continental GT is a car that bathes you in ultimate comfort while hurtling you to triple digit speeds in isolation chamber-like silence. The GT features double-pane windows and nothing less than the finest materials and workmanship throughout. Sadly, most real-world Bentley owners will never unleash the gut-wrenching power of the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 under the hood but, rest assured, when the accelerator is depressed, face-warping speed isn’t far behind. As with most luxury coupes, the Continental GT is most at home on a long stretch of highway. The Continental GT is not meant to corner like a sports car, but its AWD will pull it through an apex with style and flair.
