A car made to leave a great first impression. That’s the initial thought one may have when they put their eyes on the Bentley Continental Flying Spur. The epitome of luxury, this high-end sedan makes you want to get behind the wheel and hit the road in style.
At the first moment, all we can take in is how beautifully designed the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is. With an imposing silhouette and a defining look, it’s hard not to stare. But it’s on the inside that the car shows its true self. Delicate craftsmanship, with stunning handsewn details, is a reminder of how detail-oriented the people at Bentley truly are. The interior is also quite spacious, allowing riders to travel in unparalleled comfort. Buyers can choose from an array of leather and sewing colors to personalize according to their own taste.
Although the Bentley Continental Flying Spur might not look like it, it’s actually one of the fastest luxury sedans in the market.
The base model, the Flying Spur V8, can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. With 500 horsepower and a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine, it’s no surprise this car is as powerful as it is beautiful.
The Flying Spur W12 S, the most premium model in the lineup, can exceed speeds of 200 mph and accelerates from 0 to 60 in an impressive 4.2 seconds flat. It also has a more sporty interior, which is equal parts luxurious and powerful. The W12 S’s power output is nothing less than 635 PS, with a 6.0-litre engine.
And let’s not leave the Flying Spur V8 S behind. After all, it is able to go from 0 to 60 in just 4.6 seconds.
Speaking of the lineup, some of the biggest differences between the models lie on the engine capacity, max power, and, obviously, price.
Yes, with so many good options, it might be hard to make a decision. Buy or lease? Burr Walnut or Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus veneer? The V8 or the W12 S?
We’d advise you to follow a specialist’s opinion in the latter. The petrol heads at TopGear picked the V8 as their Flying Spur of choice. What’s yours?
