Bentley Flying Spur 2013-

THE ALL-NEW BENTLEY FLYING SPUR
  • Ultimate high luxury sedan with unrivalled performance
  • New Flying Spur brings more comfort and refinement
  • Fastest, most powerful four-door Bentley model ever
  • Sleek and elegant new styling
  • Contemporary cabin design with traditional hand-crafted luxury
  • Lighter overall despite enhanced specification
  • Connectivity and infotainment with own Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Global debut at Geneva Motor Show 2013

(Crewe, 20th February 2013) Bentley establishes a new luxury performance sedan benchmark with the launch of the new Flying Spur. With its unrivalled blend of effortless driveability, exquisite luxury and craftsmanship, sculpted design and state-of-the-art technology, the new Flying Spur takes the worldwide success of its iconic predecessor further. Bentley’s most powerful four-door model ever makes its global debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on 5th March.



It has lost it's "Continental" name, so I thought a new thread was needed.

From the A-pillar back looks excellent. But I'm not sure the Continental's styling cues in the front mate too well with the rest of car.

A shame.

I guess will have to continue saving up for a Mulsanne.

Or something.

Generally an attractive car...but lacks a little of Bentley's usual brutal substance and frankly looks just a little too svelte and blah for a Bentley. The side profile looks like an Audi. Don't get me wrong - I like the shape - it's just doesn't suit a Bentley. I am glad they kept Bentley's usual front fascia theme, though, and the largish sail panel and sculped little quarter panel "muscle bulge" are the high points.

That's funny, I think the front fits nicely with the rest of the car, but I'm not sure about the back. Those rear lights seem a bit out of place.

It's predecessor was as blend as it could be, this looks to me like a major improvement.
But off course the Mulsanne beats this by miles.

It is distinctive.

At least it doesn't look like a massively expensive Avensis anymore.

I'll be holding off for the Mulsanne-Azure, personally.
