Quick Spin: 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible
Bentley is undoubtedly a mega-luxury brand that backs up ridiculous comfort with serious performance. Take the 2014 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible ($240,000 base), for instance. Though its looks and interior are nearly pornographic in their excesses, it'll also punch you in the throat and drink your beer without hesitation. After taking it for a drive in non-ideal conditions -- and almost wrecking it on the icy streets of Squaw Valley -- I got firsthand experience on why the brand is held in such high regard.
