Looks like a real Bentley instead of a badge-special Roller; W12 engine still pulling strong at 150 mph; wood and leather interior would make a Prime Minister feel at home

Dislikes

VW Phaeton–sourced navi system and other switchgear ergonomically hopeless; back seats too small for a chimpanzee

Verdict

VW got the Continental as much right as they got the Phaeton wrong. The GT reeks class and exclusivity (Maybach stylists take note), and even at $162k seems like a bargain
