The Ferrari Portofino is a groundbreaking Grand Tourer named after one of the most beautiful towns on the Italian Riviera, and any such vehicle is bound to draw envious competitors. Thus, a Ferrari Portofino vs. Bentley Continental comparison is inevitable. What you’ll notice when you dig in is that that the Continental is a brute, while the Portofino combines power and impressive design in such a way that they complement each other.


Powertrain and Performance

While the Continental GT offers more brute power — 626 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque vs. the Portofino’s 591 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque — the Ferrari jumps off the line faster thanks to its focus on elegant, aerodynamic design. So while the Continental has an engine that’s more powerful in isolation, the limitations of the vehicle show when you hit the track: the Portofino can jump from a standstill to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, while the Continental takes 3.7 seconds to do the same.

Design

The design is where the Portofino shines: not only does it have a distinct, head-turning look, but every aspect of the vehicle was conceived with aerodynamic efficiency in mind. As such, any Bentley vs. Ferrari comparison should consider the aerodynamic innovations that you’ll only find in the Prancing Horse, including:

  • Side Air Vents: Not only do these catch the light in such a way that creates a distinct chiaroscuro effect, but the belt-line and air extraction fin serve to relieve pressure from inside the wheel arch by way of a visible vent.
  • Air Curtain Intakes: Half-hidden at the edges of the headlights, these intakes vent into the front of the wheel housing, reducing drag by channeling that air along the car’s scooped sides.
  • Taillights: Not just any taillights, the positioning of these lights allow for an extended spoiler, which in turn allows for an enhanced region of controlled airflow, reducing drag.

The Continental tries to overcome its relative aerodynamic inefficiency with brute force, and still comes up short.

Interior

The final piece of a Bentley continental vs. Ferrari Portofino comparison is the interior, and it’s just as important as the rest. Both vehicles offer several comfort and convenience-focused amenities, but you’ll find a few things in the Portofino that aren’t in the Continental GT:

  • More Adjustable Steering Wheel: The Portofino includes a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, while the Continental only offers a tilt-adjustable wheel. When you’re tearing up the track, you want to have everything in the most comfortable location, and Ferrari gives you that power.
  • 18-Way Electronically Adjustable Seats: Continuing the theme of giving control to the driver, the Ferrari allows for fine-grained control of seating position, while the Continental does not.
  • Larger Trunk: Despite its performance-focused design, the Portofino offers superior practicality in the form of a 10.3-cubic-foot trunk, while the Continental offers a relatively paltry 8.3 cubic feet.
