2016 Bentley Continental GT vs. Its Competition

2016 Bentley Continental GT Speed
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Compared to more mass-market luxury brands, Bentley competes in a completely different stratosphere, where fine leathers, exotic woods and obscene power are all standard features in every model.

The Aston Martin DB9 is another infinitely handsome and terribly powerful car that produces all the noises that lead to lust.

If you're looking for all-wheel-drive and a little more seating, there's the Ferrari FF, with its very cool, very polarizing design–but hey, it's a Ferrari.

The Maserati GranTurismo doesn't cost as much and may even offer a little less prestige, but its sonorous Italian V-8 and exotic styling earn a slightly younger audience.

The most likely vehicle to show up alongside the Continental GT in a parking-lot duel is the Mercedes-Benz S-Class; as a two-door coupe, it's undeniably attractive, and runs strong with every version, from base V-8 to twin-turbo AMG trim.

Quick Specs
The 2016 Bentley Continental GT family of coupes shows that brash performance can live hand in hand with a genteel demeanor.
Coupe, Cabriolet, and Maybach versions—and even a Plug-In Hybrid—make the 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class far more diverse and adventurous than it used to be; it's now not just a flagship sedan, but a family of flagships.
The 2016 Maserati GranTurismo puts a gorgeous wrapper on Ferrari-inspired performance, to stunning effect.
All the practicality in the 2015 Ferrari FF is genuine, but most will buy it for what's unique—its shape, its drive system, and its badge.
