Video: MT pits GT-R against Bentley Continental Supersports
GT-R vs. Continental Supersports – Click above to watch video after the jump
Motor Trend's infatuation with the Nissan GT-R (who can blame 'em?) continues, this team manifesting itself in a quarter-mile shoot out comparison between Godzilla and the Bentley Continental Supersports. Sound like a strange pairing? Well it is and it isn't. Though the Bentley does weigh over 1,000 lbs more than the Nissan (4,993 lb vs 3,885 lb), its twin-turbo W12 engine puts out a lot more horsepower (621 vs 485). Combine those two stats and you get the same power-to-weight ratio of 8 lb/hp for both vehicles. At that point, it's up to traction, transmissions and the god given nature of each engine to claim a winner. We won't spoil it for you, though. Check out the vid in full after the jump.
