does it handle
Tough call, but no it does not. The Bentley Continental is not as "tight" as the DB9. It's definitely not as good as the new DBS.
my father and I debated the GTC and DB9 for a year and ended up getting the DB9. You absolutely can't go wrong, it ultimately came down to the Aston Martin because it was not as flashy and ostentatious as the Bentley. If your up for a flashy, soft and smooth driving car, you buy the bentley. If you want more of a sports car ride and feel then u buy the Aston
