On this episode of Head 2 Head, Kim Reynolds re-enacts the Battle of Britain by pitting the Union Jack’s two great luxury names again each other — Bentley versus Rolls-Royce. However, these two require testing that’s elevated above the routine, so we’ve devised as few, ah, unorthodox challenges. With almost 1200-hp, twenty-four cylinders, and four turbochargers between them, the Flying Spur and Ghost can both paint tire streaks on the dragstrip.
But can they paint with acrylics on canvas as well? We’ll find out. And which car can turn more heads in ritzy Santa Monica? We aimed video cameras at the sidewalks and counted the eyeballs. All that, and the answer to which car has a $40,000 paint job, is just a click away!
