2023 Bentley Continental Summary

Bentley has been building cars for more than 100 years, but the famous British brand was re-born 20 years ago when it launched the Continental GT.

The sporty coupe and convertible reinvigorated the brand, returning it to its former glory days when it made cars that were dynamic and not just big and luxurious.

Now onto its third generation, the Continental GT has not only helped Bentley re-establish itself but also become a modern motoring icon.

Which is what the company wanted, an iconic model, like the Porsche 911 that could be a flagbearer for the brand.

Like the 911, this latest iteration is available in multiple forms, and we’re testing the Continental GT S Convertible, a two-door, four-seat grand tourer - with an emphasis on the ‘grand’.

2024 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Summary

The fastest-accelerating and most powerful series production AMG to date isn't some slinky supercar, it's a truly enormous four-door, four-seat barge that weighs just a smidge under 2.4 tonnes.

Surprised? Welcome to the wonderful world of electrification, one where manufacturers can produce physics-bending performance by combining an internal combustion engine (ICE) with an electric motor, just so long as they're willing to put up with some extra weight.

And so it is with the Mercedes-AMG GT63S E Performance Coupe, which is a plug-in hybrid, though perhaps not quite as you know them.

Efficiency is not the name of the game here. Performance, and lots of it, is the goal. And, thanks to the combination of a twin-turbo V8 engine and a powerful electric motor, this big beast delivers plenty of it.
