Speed Week: Porsche 911 Turbo S vs Bentley Continental GT Speed
Here come the big guns. The jet set. The high rollers...
Posted: 28 Jul 2014
The Bentley Conti GT Speed and Porsche 911 Turbo have much in common. Both shove daft power through four-wheel-drive transmissions. Both have (just about) four seats. Both will cost you over £150,000 once you start slapping on options. But you shouldn't think of these two as competitors. Instead, consider them partners in crime. Or, rather, partners in crime-fighting. See, you know how, in any self-respecting telly or Hollywood cop duo, there's always the same dynamic? One's always the straight guy, the guy who plays by the rules. And then there's the maverick, the guy who'll do what he damn well needs to do to get the job done, and to hell with The Chief. Well, that's the 911 Turbo and Conti GT Speed, that is.
