Bentley Continental GT vs Porsche 911 Carrera drag race

These two cars have very different approaches to performance, but which works best in a drag race?

The Porsche 911 has been conforming to its own set of rules for many years, sticking resolutely with a rear-slung, flat-six engine rather than a more fashionable front or mid-engined layout. It's in stark contrast to the front-engined Bentley Continental GT, which has almost twice as much engine - 6.0-litres compared with just 3.4-litres in the Porsche, and 12 cylinders arranged in a W formation.

But which recipe is the best for drag racing? We put the 560bhp Bentley up against a 911 Carrera, offering up 350bhp to see which one was fastest. Watch the video above to see which one wins...
