Here is a vicious but noble competition: to pit two of the most luxurious cars on the market in head to head showdown. Which is better? Jonny Lieberman from Motor Trend subjects himself to the personal experience required to answer that.

First let us acknowledge, Jonny Lieberman would make a showdown between a VW GTI and a Skoda fun. In this episode of Motor Trend’s Head 2 Head, he is going to address the nagging question posed at many a Millionaires Anonymous meeting: should you prefer a Mercedes Maybach or a Bentley Mulsanne Speed.

First Jonny shows us what it’s like to actually drive one of these yourself. You’re behind the wheel.  But then recognizing that no self-respecting oligarch would drive him- or herself, he moves to the back seat to provide a report from this more realistic perspective. A chauffeur named “Skeeves” drives him around.

Apparently “Skeeves” can not only chauffeur Jonny around in the dreamy stateliness with which one expects to be squired around… “Skeeves” can also hammer it, and we get to see what the passenger would experience if suddenly confronting an ambush and the chauffeur had to summon all 750 lb-ft of torque. Brilliant!

The two cars turn out to have two distinct approaches to offer the elite and pampered, as you’ll learn. FWIW Legendary Car Guy agrees with Jonny’s choice of winner.
