Bentley's Flying Spur is one of the most exclusively priced and engineered sedans in the world--and as such, only a few cars appeal to the same clientele.
There's a new Mercedes S-Class coming this year, and it's being developed expressly to drift upmarket into Rolls-Royce and Bentley territory at its upper reaches.
Expect dramatic interiors, lavish equipment, and from what we've already seen, far-reaching safety technology.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost is the Spur's direct challenger--more bespoke British motoring, with maybe a more sedate touch, and less eagerness to engage the driver.
Quite the opposite of that, the Aston Martin Rapide gives up all pretense of practicality for its stunning looks.
There's virtually no adult-sized room in back to speak of, but--well, have you seen it?
