2013 Bentley Continental GT vs. Its Competition

2013 Bentley Continental GT
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Bentley's breathless performance, luxury fittings and pricing put it in a sliver of the atmosphere where few competitors compete for oxygen.

The Maserati GranTurismo is somewhat less expensive and maybe less prestigious, but its sonorous Italian V-8 and fantastic styling belie its more youthful appeal.

The Aston Martin Virage skews a little more sexy, too, and its perfectly tasteful exterior and interior cloak a powertrain that rips off spectacular, race-ready engine notes.

For all-wheel drive and better four-seat capacity, there's the Ferrari FF, with its bulbous styling a polarizing factor that undercuts the added value of its prancing-horse badge.
