Thanks to its impressive power and prestigious brand image, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is an intriguing alternative to more mainstream ultraluxury sedans. The Bentley Flying Spur is a AWD luxury saloon produced by Bentley Motors Limited. It is the four-door variant of the Bentley Continental GT coupe.
We are proud to offer this Beluga Gray Flying Spur with tan leather interior here at Motoexotica Classic Cars!
This US version Flying Spur was produced at Bentley's factory in Crewe, England. As the name sharing suggests, the four-door Flying Spur is similar to Bentley's Continental GT coupe. The two cars utilize the same basic architecture, drivetrain and styling cues. In terms of size, the Flying Spur is about 20 inches longer than the GT. The additional length has been put to good use for providing the rear-seat occupants with ample room to stretch out. Bentley says it made an extra effort to minimize the Flying Spur's weight increase; indeed, the car weighs only about 200 pounds more than the GT, although, at about 5,500 pounds, it's never going to be considered a feisty sport sedan.
Standard equipment highlights include bi-HID headlights, adjustable suspension damping, 19-inch wheels, automatic door latching, four-zone automatic climate control, 16-way power front seats with three-position memory, DVD navigation, a premium audio system with a glovebox-mounted CD changer and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, the mirrors are power but the passenger side mirror is loose but functions.
Entering the Flying Spur means being hit by a flood of premium leather that covers everything from the seats and door panels to the rear parcel shelf and headliner. The rich leather interior looks great (it takes 11 complete hides to cover the interior from top to bottom) and a full burled walnut dash with bright chrome and muted aluminum details. Please note there are some usual surface cracks in the wood grain veneer.
The Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive Bentley Continental Flying Spur does pack plenty of power, though. In line with the company's performance-themed tradition, the Spur's 552-horsepower, twin-turbo W12 and 4L65-E four-speed automatic transmission can propel the car forward at rates similar to those of a BMW M3. In the higher ranges, the Flying Spur will leave most sports cars in the dust as it accelerates to its near 200-mph top speed. Braking distances and resistance to fade are equally impressive thanks to the massive 15.9-inch front and 13.2-inch rear vented power disc brakes. All for tires are newer with good tread life all around, wheels have some curb rash as pictured.
To protect its occupants, the Continental Flying Spur is equipped with a full suite of safety equipment. There are side and side curtain airbags for front and rear outboard passengers. A passenger occupant sensing system in the rear seats automatically raises the rear headrests to ensure the best possible protection against whiplash injuries. Antilock brakes, traction control and stability control are also standard equipment.
Ultra-luxury competition to this 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur include Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 series, Aston Martin Rapide, and Rolls-Royce Ghost.
