If you are in the market for a Bentley Continental GT, a Ferrari California etc, then yes, they are poser cars that scores high on the coveted "valet test" scale... A Ghibli is a heavy (over 1800kg) car that surely is more aimed at luxurious touring than a pure driving experience and tail out track and Nurburgring action!

I would instead ask myself, which car would pass the Nurburgring test?
It would be the M3/M4 every time
The base Corvette is going to beat the M4 in the ring test. If that doesn't fit your image, get a BMW or a Maserati.

The M5 gets cross shopped with the Quattroporte.
