Bentley Continental Flying Spur – Potent Luxury Car

Bentley Continental Flying Spur

A new Flying Spur model will complete the Bentley Continental family’s new look range of cars when it’s launched late next year. Testing has begun in southern Europe and this engineering marvel is well disguised to hide the new Spur’s near production-ready bodywork.

Similar to the revamped Continental GT coupé and GTC convertible, the new Flying Spur is based on a revised version of the current platform which is draped in a fresh bodywork and finished with a new and upgraded interior.

Although its predecessor makes the new version appear shorter and taller it is sitting on the same wheelbase as today’s car, with similar overall dimensions.

The totally revamped model however, does give away the crisper sheet metal new bodywork, which draws on the theme of the new GT and GTC. As you will be able to see that today’s Spur has flowing curves on the bonnet and boot, the new model will bear sharper and stunning features and will sport a more structured look on the flanks.

It’s important that the Spur succeeds in the biggest markets of China and the US that it retains the presence of a formal yet understated saloon.

“Power trains are expected to follow those of the GT and GTC, centering on twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 and 6.0-litre W12 units, with the speed range-topping at 616bhp and a 200mph-plus top speed. With its new power plant, the Spur Speed will again claim the title of Bentley’s fastest four-door vehicle.”

The Spur’s interior will get a new fascia, shared with the GT coupé, featuring higher-grade minor switchgear. The cabin will also be shortened with new materials and luxury carpet.
