The first-generation Bentley Continental GT was arguably the most modern car to wear a flying B in decades. With loads of engineering work done by parent company Volkswagen (including a novel W12 engine layout), the big Conti GT is fast and comfortable, as any Bentley should be. Those who want a little more of the former and a wee bit less of the latter might be enthused by the Continental GT Speed, boasting 602 horses to the base model’s 552. Lighter, lower, and stiffer, the Speed nevertheless offers a serene interior and iconic styling, serving up a nice balance between the luxobarges of Bentley’s past and the high-tech wunderwagens of its future.
