Driven: 2013 Bentley Continental GTC V8

On the road, the GTC wasn’t quite so freight-train-like as a full-tilt W-12 or Speed model. Don’t be mistaken, the wave of torque that this engine could produce was admirable and easily accessible. But, the V-8 wasn’t as prone to flattening us to our luxuriously upholstered seats as it was to gently pressing us back under hard throttle.

Winding Road Showroom: 807-Horsepower, Mid-Engine Golf GTI For Sale

Think of this car as the GTI W12’s older cousin, many times removed. Modified by the team at 034 Motorsports, what started as a standard Mk4 is now powered by a 3.0-liter, turbocharged V-6.

Driven: 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish

Yet when you’re behind the wheel, these figures and metrics and the fact that there are faster, cheaper cars available mean very little. Driving an Aston Martin isn’t a performance choice so much as a lifestyle choice. You feel a little bit taller, a little bit happier just standing next to a beauty like this. Driving an Aston Martin singles you out as a connoisseur, someone that could have a Ferrari, or Lamborghini, or Bentley, but recognizes that there’s more to life than 0-60 times and top speeds that you’ll never hit. That doesn’t mean this isn’t an inspiring car to drive, though, as we found out during a long weekend testing it.
