Best GT cars of 2022
A GT, or grand tourer, is a very particular type of car, being one primarily designed for covering long distances at high speed, in great comfort, and while rewarding the keen driver. GT cars tend to be rather a niche proposition, not least because by their nature they are typically rather expensive. But for those seeking to recapture the romance of driving, few cars have the appeal of a true grand tourer. Here, we pick 10 of the best.

GT cars FAQs
Pigeonholing cars is subjective, but in general terms a GT, or grand tourer, should be able to cover vast distances effortlessly, with its occupants kept in refined comfort. Striking, desirable looks and a coupe shape tend to be required, too.
How much money do you have? The sky's the limit for both GT and luxury cars, so combine the two together and you're likely to get a heady price. Plus don't forget personal taste: some might argue a Bentley Continental GT is the best luxury GT car, while others might prefer a Mercedes S-Class Coupe, and others still would only ever choose an Aston Martin.
If you're looking for a new GT car, the Kia Stinger represents great value for money. If you're shopping used, it depends how brave you are. Head to the classifieds you can pick up a 2005 Mercedes CL for around £5,000, or a 2004 Bentley Continental GT for £14,000. But while these were highly desirable, six-figure grand tourers back in the day, they were also fearsomely complex cars. Used buyers therefore need a degree of nerve (or a degree in electrical engineering), plus potentially deep pockets for repairs, if they are toying about in the world of cheap used GT cars.
