Continental Flying Spur

2005 - 2013

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is an individual four-door Grand Tourer that provides space, refinement and style shaped by unrivalled craftsmanship. Employing cutting-edge technology and precision engineering, it delivers a depth of performance, comfort and ride quality that together epitomise over 90 years of Bentley.

Overview

Bentley Continental Flying Spur

The muscular flow of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur’s exterior mixes high performance coup√© poise with limousine presence, while the classic Bentley matrix grille is unmistakable. Behind the grille is an extraordinary feat of engineering that you will also find at the heart of the Bentley Continental GT and GTC models: the 6-litre, 12-cylinder twin turbocharged motor that propels the Bentley Continental Flying Spur from 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds with total refinement. Despite producing 552bhp and 479lbs/ft of torque at an effortless 1,600rpm, this uniquely configured ‘W12’ engine is extremely compact, which liberates significantly more space in the cabin.

Starting with plenty of usable space, the Bentley design team has created an elegant and relaxing interior framed by hand-polished mirror-matched wood veneers and trimmed in the finest hides. Traditional Bentley details such as the ‘bulls eye’ air vents with ‘organ stop’ controls are part of the unique ambience, and you will also appreciate a large boot for plenty of luggage.

Technology

Bentley Continental Flying Spur

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is handcrafted, but it is also highly advanced. Useful technology surrounds its occupants, such as the infotainment system that controls a whole range of functions including keyless entry, iPod connection, Bluetooth telephone system and TV tuner. There is also a DVD-based satellite navigation system and intelligent Park Distance Control. For true music lovers, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur can be equipped with an exclusive Naim audio system, which creates an in-car sound stage that has no equal. British through and through, and chosen by the most discerning people in music technology such as Abbey Road recording studios, Naim is a natural partner for Bentley.

Shaped around the comfort and safety of four occupants, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur provides complete fingertip control for rear seat passengers too. From individual seat settings to climate zones, communications and entertainment, you are free to fine-tune your environment, wherever you are travelling.
