TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL is cozy, comfortable and loaded with enough performance and technology to entertain even the ultra-wealthy. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL Class feels content as a grand tourer, but it's sportier than you might expect.
