The glowing rotors are stunning.

Frankly expected the M8 to put more distance between the two cars.

Pretty close competitors vis-a-vis straight line speed. I'd definitely think the M8 takes the Bentley on a track with some twisties due to weight alone.

Drag racing is pretty dumb for most cars, but especially so for this duo

Drag racing is so dumb itís a sanctioned Motorsport.

There are cars that are quicker, we just have to deal with it.

We canít dismiss an entire Motorsport because BMWs always lose to Audi on it.

Drag race is a great indicator of how well a car is engineered and how drivetrain can performe with respect to power, torque and traction.
Infact a showroom of engine, transmission, differential , chasis , weight distribution and their connections…

I didn't dismiss it because it lost; I didn't even watch it because it was a dumb exercise. Yes, I acknowledge that such content attract eyeballs (and ad revenue), and yes it's a motorsport of sorts... for cars that are designed to compete in this realm. These are not.

These are high-dollar, luxo GT's. 0-60 carries some bragging rights, but it's fairly low-brow for this crowd.

I will happily be an old fart menapause man if I got to drive one of these beauties every day. The Continental GT is just a stunning car inside and out.

Well if this is true then why people pay +130k to buy plaid? Or why even Tesla spends lots of time and money to build a car "with absolute no luxurious " just to claim the quickest sedan?
Believe me good or bad , the next generation of high performance cars are participating in sub 2 seconds 0-60 war…

I had this Bentley and raped the shit out of it. I thought cars are meant to be driven and even luxury cars especially ones with decent hp and tq.

LOL.

The interior is arguably nicer... Yes luxurious but with that nice RS7 4.0TT engine.

11.2 seconds. I'm sure earlier models were 10.9/11. Conditions looked cool and dry. Perfect for the best times. I wonder if the LCIs are slower due to emissions tuning?

Regardless of the result, I'd take the 8 any day of the week if I had to choose one to drive every day. In the UK at least, the Conti GT has always just had a whiff of footballers car about it, and I've never really liked the way it looked.
