2018 Bentley Continental GT vs. Its Competition

2018 Bentley Continental GT
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Bentley competes a notch above the mass-market luxury brands.

Exotic woods, soft leathers, and unrelenting power are standard equipment.

Still, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class coupe and convertible are competitors, and in fact they’re newer cars with more technology, far more safety features, more engine options, and an undeniable beauty of their own.

The Aston Martin DB11 is also much newer, and its fantastic noises and handsome shape lead directly to lust.

The Ferrari GTC4 Lusso isn’t as beautiful, but it’s design is cool and polarizing, and it has all-wheel drive, four seats, and Ferrari performance.

The Maserati GranTurismo isn’t as expensive or as prestigious as the Bentley, but it has the sonorous engine note of an Italian V-8, as well as exotic styling.
