On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago pits two great Britons against each other: the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and the Jaguar XKR-S GT.

The similarities between these two run deep. Base price and power are similar, and both have carbon ceramic brakes, adjustable dampers, and Pirelli P Zero Corsas.

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish vs 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed! [Head 2 Head Episode 38]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, two of England’s most prestigious brands duke it out as Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago pits the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed against Aston Martin’s 2014 Vanquish. With names like Vanquish & GT Speed, it’s inevitable that some spirited driving awaits. Join Carlos as he he flogs both these fine automobiles through Motor Trend’s dynamic testing course before heading out to carve up the canyon roads.

Both Aston Martin & Bentley are synonymous with luxury, class & the finer things in life. However, there’s nothing gentlemanly about the 12 cylinder motors each car packs under it’s bonnet. Even more savage is their more than 500 horse power capabilities. Add carbon ceramic brakes into the mix & price tags near $300,000 & you’ve got an exotic match up.
