These are some of the best connected cars on the market today; they range from an affordable hatchback to a racy new minivan and all the way to one of the most luxurious rides on the planet.

Behind the Wheel: 2014 Bentley Continental GTC V8 S

The Continental name has been a part of the Bentley family since the early 1950s. Though the 2014 Bentley New Continental GTC V8 S ($216,000) remains relatively unchanged in its iconic style and interior club room feel (which rivals a rich mahogany office), what's under the skin of this Monaco Yellow grand touring torpedo sets it apart from previous generations.

Behind the Wheel: 2014 Bentley Flying Spur

The application to work at Bentley must go something like this: here's some wood, some metal and a cow...go make a car. Bentley arguably sets the industry standard for this wild world of luxury vehicles, and it's mind blowing how much work goes into their hand-crafted, hand-assembled chariots. As the Flying Spur is essentially a stretched Continental GT, it had carried that namesake since its inception -- but the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur ($200,000) drops the prefix and gets a boost in power and a fully refreshed exterior that separates it from its two-door brethren.

2013 Frankfurt Auto Show: 10 Best New Cars

There was another huge auto show this year in Frankfurt, Germany. Spread out across a dozen exhibition halls covering a mile of real estate, the 65th IAA show featured wares from virtually every automaker on the planet. It is at Frankfurt, for instance, where you can learn about cutting-edge technology like heated armrests (no, we're not kidding) and then walk around the corner and sample the same technology in a 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. If the question is asked, “Wasn’t that car shown at Frankfurt?” chances are, at least for now, the answer is “yes”. Ditto on whether said car saw extensive press coverage. With that, here’s a rundown of the best of Frankfurt -- not just the big names, but the ones that made us take notice.

Automotive Horology: A Compendium of 10 Iconic Cars & Watches

Wheels and gears, second hands and tach needles, power trains and power reserves. Men have always been fascinated by time, speed, accuracy and power -- and the beautiful combination of high-end timepieces and exotic roadgoing automobiles captures these obsessions appropriately. And whether the watch of choice is used to measure lap splits or to simply echo the same kind of quality and heritage as his car, you can be assured that careful time was taken to select both. We match up some of the best in timekeeping and automobilia in Gear Patrol style.

The Ultimate Dreamliner

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.

Best Sports Cars at Detroit 2013

As happy as we are to see a smorgasbord of automotive selections at the Detroit Auto Show this year, our pulses raced especially fast for sports cars. But even the definition of a sports car has changed. They don't always have two doors anymore, and they may never even set tire on a track. But some things never change; what they still can do (at least the good ones) is perform and put a crick in your neck from looking too hard. Here are some of our favorites from NAIAS 2013.
