Performance and exclusivity aren't only Bentley territory.
The Maserati Quattroporte is more of a sports car than a sedan, and its styling is more suave-and Italian, of course.
The Mercedes-Benz S600 and the performance-tuned S65 AMG are powered by big twin-turbo V-12 engines and are just as comfortable as the Flying Spur, even if the cabins are a bit less stunning.
The Audi S8 is a bargain by these standards-even though it's driven by a Lamborghini-derived V-10 and has more satisfying performance and a lighter, nimbler feel.
Finally, the Porsche Panamera Turbo has stupefying performance and real interior room for four passengers to go with a finely finished interior and an exterior that just misses the elegance mark.
