yes, but don't forget this

''2/ weight/HP ratio :
CGT = 4.5kg/hp
QP = 5.2 kg/hp

the power of the W12 is massive.

Neither of these are classified as sports cars but both are strong cars. Since I have the Bentley it is quite obvious which one I think wins the competition.

Still like the QP. Why not consider the Aston Martin Rapide?

I think that the CGT and the QP are very different, as I said earlier.
It's the reason I didn't sold the QP when I bought the CGT
The Rapide is a nice car, indeed. I really wanted a GT and the AM is NOT a 2+2, no one can seat in the back comfortably.

Besides, AM has not the financial and the technological strength of VAG the design is amazing (do you know that the VANTAGE/DB9 series had been designed by a Dane? Henrik Fisker who also designed the BMW Z8) but the technology is obsolete.

I now drive 2 cars built by VAG, the CGT and the R8 and they are both technological wonders!

Am curious about your feelings on the Nissan GTR. It's an incredible tech-wonder for relatively reasonable money when it comes to performance and putting/keeping the power on the tarmac.

I never drove the Nissan GTR.
Thus, I have no opinion.
aesthetically I find it ugly. it's figures are impressive but I'm far from impressed by the interior photos I have seen.

I did take a used one out for a test ride and was not impressed. I think I was expecting more raw power but it did not feel especially fast. They are not that special looking but if I was to mod a car this is the one to take into the realm of ultra vulgar with body kits, outlandish paint and a totally blow motor. Things that should not be done to the finer super cars. IMHO.
