2011 Bentley Continental GT

There's no way around it: the 2011 Bentley Continental GT ($TBA) has one tough act to follow. The first redesign of Bentley's most accessible ride since its 2003 introduction, the 2011 GT is powered by a twin-turbocharged, FlexFuel-capable W12 good for 567hp, a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, and a top speed of 198 mph, both also partially due to the new Quickshift transmission that also offers double downshifts. Other features include a new body with more upright grille and a "double horseshoe" rear profile, LED daytime-running lights, "cobra" seats designed for increased rear cabin space, a new Google Maps-capable touchscreen infotainment system, 20-inch wheels, and an all-wheel drive system with a 40:60 rear-torque bias. No word on whether they'll be offering a special "Stallworth" edition with a pedestrian pre-attached to the hood.

  • Audi RS5

    Looking for race car-like power in an unassuming package? You could do a lot worse than the Audi RS5 (€77,000; roughly $104,000). This stately coupe packs a lot of punch under the hood, thanks to a 4.2-liter, 450hp V8 engine, a dual-branch intake and exhaust system, and a seven-speed S tronic transmission with two clutches and two subsidiary transmissions for lightning-fast shifts, and also offers high-end features like quattro permanent all-wheel drive, optional 20-inch wheels, a powerful and internally ventilated disc braking system, an MMI navigation system, and Xenon HID headlamps.

  • 2011 Audi A1

    What would it look like if Audi made a Mini Cooper? Probably a lot like the 2011 Audi A1 (€16,000 and up). This small compact Audi offers go-kart-like handling thanks to its sort overhangs, wide stance, and short height, and comes powered by one of four either TFSI gasoline or TDI diesel engines, ranging in power from 86hp to 122hp. Five-speed or six-speed manuals are available as well as a seven-speed dual-clutch S-tronic automatic, and niceties like the MMI navigation system, a 100 percent LED-lit interior, 18-inch wheels, LED rear lights and Xenon headlamps, four colors of roof arches, and ten exterior colors.
