    This Bentley Continental GT Speed convertible is the most expensive car I've ever driven for an extended period of time. I enjoyed the heck out of it, but there are several cars I would spend my house-sized pile of money on first. There were some fun moments, though. The good times included finding a VIP parking spot right in front of the trendy pizza place in my neighborhood.

    After dinner we were talking outside and relaxing with a crowd, and then I jumped in the big beast unannounced, to the confused look of the group. I like the Bentley Continental GT coupe on its own merits.

    Disregarding the price, I love the shape of the sheetmetal, the blinged-out grille, twin headlights and general cat-like appearance with the fastback. It looks like a rapper or basketball player should be driving. The Continental can accommodate them because the front seats slide so far back , a 7-footer could probably slide behind the wheel.

    I'm not a fan, however, of the convertible. The lines of the coupe's roof make the GT look badass, the cloth top makes it look like a glorified -- sorry, Bentley -- Chrysler Sebring. But, from the driver's seat, you don't notice any of that. All you can feel is the comfort of the seats, which, with massage, heating, cooling and adjustments, can cradle you in any way imaginable.

    I'm sorry I only noticed the shiatsu at the end of my weekend. The steering wheel is thick and feels hefty in the hands, though it is easy to steer at slow speeds. The paddle shifters work quickly as long as you're on the throttle; they're a little lazier when cruising. I did grab the turn signal and windshield wiper stalk a few times on accident, understandable since they are placed right below. I think they're a little too close.

    The wheel song skip dial is super hard to be precise with; I just ended up switching to AM or skipping nine songs at once. On that same note, the radio wasn't even close to where it needed to be. It hesitated too much when switching functions or stations, and there's no easy way to control it. You'd think Bentley could take a page from Audi's playbook. It was, of course, loud and the sound quality is great from the Naim system.

    The rearview camera also worked great. It took me a few minutes, but I got my phone hooked up through Bluetooth, and could play all of my audio files wirelessly. This flying brick shoots out of the box like a cannonball, mowing down small bumps in its way.

    It does jiggle a bit on the bigger ones. It's kind of disconcerting, to be in something so big, taking off so fast. In sport mode the exhaust gets louder, the throttle gets more sensitive and the suspension tightens up as well. It feels stiff and sporty, but still leans in corners. The brakes are rock solid, hauling this bruiser down to a legal speed with a medium-sized foot plant on the metal-accented pedal. It was fun to roll this car for the weekend, despite not being able to drop the top because of the weather, but give me a triple black, GT Speed coupe and I'll show you a car that beats some of the best in the world.

    I was grabbing some groceries in the Bentley Continental GT Speed convertible and someone complimented me in the parking lot. As the words left my mouth I realized that I had just made a total butt of myself to a complete stranger. Bentley owners of the world, sorry for making you guys look like jerks. But the worst thing: I wasn't even correct. Its top speed is mph. But this was the convertible, and apparently Bentley engineers decided that driving more than mph with the top down will rip hair follicles from your head and detune the drop-top ever so slightly.
