    That's an easy one, the Aston. The Bentley is just a tarted up VW in a hand-made suit.

    The Bentley wins on room in the back seat, but its still not impressive (tight for an adult) The boot is also much more useful. It also has a more relaxed ride and is quieter.

    The Aston wins everywhere else.

    I dissagree. These two cars are quite similar in every way you look at them; quality, rareness, style, price, performance, origin etc etc...

    Whichever has the least parent company parts bin components. The DB9 has ford fiesta window switches, if memory serves. So I'd probably go for the Bentley.

    Neither car appeals much to me at all, but they are both GT cars so I'm just going to go ahead and take the more comfortable of the two, the Bentley.

    Well in my opinion using a Volkswagen drivetrain is worse, fifties Ferraris used Fiat or Alfa Romeo parts for the door handles or window mecanisms, and not for that are regarded as less pure or worse cars.

    Very different cars. Aston, and if the Bentley were a 4-door, they'd be a perfect compliment to one another.

    They were made for two totally different target groups. The Aston is sport oriented whereas the Bentley is more of a cruiser. Of course they are both rare, pricey, fast etc. So is a Bentley Flying Spur, but that doesn't make it similar to the Aston.

    Who cars if it has ford focus carpet fibers? A good car is a good car, no matter where its pieces come from.

    If a Mclaren had a shift knob from a Lada it would still be a terrific car.
