2009 Bentley Continental GT vs. Its Competition

2009 Bentley Continental GT

So few two-doors offer the interior space and ultra-lux fittings of the Continental GT, and only one rival comes to mind: the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class.

The CL-Class blends a classy, conservative interior design with performance that has the straight-line acceleration, if not the handling, to keep up with top sports car models.

Both feel hefty and poised on the open road, while the Bentley has the exclusivity edge to go with its cut-above cabin.
