TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Aston Martin DB9 offers a refined balance of power and prestige, James Bond-cool whatever the situation. Well-mannered in nearly every situation, the 2014 Bentley Continental GT is a powerhouse more fitted for a gentleman than a rock star; but the new GT V8 S should add a little more urgency to the driving experience. As the entry point to Ferrari ownership, the 2014 California balances performance, style, and practicality surprisingly well.
