The British really know how to build the cool GT car. Aston Martin has cemented itself as a premier British sports car company thanks to its many appearances in the James Bond franchise.
And, if you read the books, Bond actually drove the Bentley, maker of the Continental GT, which although technically British, and uses various German components courtesy of parent company Volkswagen.
McLaren has also come along in recent years as the sports and supercar company but has now moved into GT cars. So which is best? Well, Auto Trader decided to find out which company makes the best British GT car.
The candidates are the Aston Martin DB11, the Bentley Continental, and the McLaren 570 GT. If the choice were up to us, we would go with the DB11 because it combines great power from the 5.2-liter twin turbo V12 and plenty of comfort thanks to the partnership with Mercedes-Benz.
The McLaren is much more sporty thanks to the mid-engined layout with the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8, and the Bentley is the softest of the three with its VW Phaeton roots.
You’ll have to watch the video below to see which car Auto Trader chooses, but you probably have your mind made up.
