CONTINENTAL FLYING SPUR POISE. PERFORMANCE. PASSION.


AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER. A CAR BEYOND COMPARE.


AWESOME POWER BORN OF THE MOST PHENOMENAL COUPÉ.


WHERE HANDCRAFTED ELEGANCE BLENDS WITH CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY.


STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD? WHAT CROWD?


SHEER RELAXATION. PURE EXHILARATION. WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF BENTLEY.


THE CONTINENTAL FLYING SPUR. A BEAUTIFUL MEETING OF THE PAST AND THE FUTURE. Bred from the breathtaking R-Type Continental, the fastest four-seat coupé of its time, came the Continental Flying Spur. A car hailed as one of the most elegant and yet powerful saloons ever created. The new Continental Flying Spur continues the Bentley bloodline of sporting Grand Tourers. Inspired by today’s most desirable coupé – the Continental GT – it delivers awesome levels of torque and seemingly endless reserves of power. Phenomenal potency unleashed by the same 6-litre, twin-turbocharged, 12-cylinder engine that propelled the Continental GT into the world’s motoring headlines. A formidable 552bhp with a top speed of over 190mph. Performance controlled by a 6-speed transmission and all-wheel drive, but never diluted. Pure exhilaration hand in hand with sheer relaxation. The unmistakable feel and aroma of the Bentley cabin surrounding you; with authentic, handcrafted veneer and leather hide encasing sophisticated technology. Hallmarks shaped by the craftsmen and women of Crewe, echoing a rich heritage of creating utterly unique cars. The future is here. The ultimate Grand Tourer has arrived.


THIS IS WHAT YOUR SENSES HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.


Model shown features optional full length rear centre console.
