|Result||Sold - £24,640|
The Bentley Continental Flying Spur (2006 - 2013) was the second Bentley manufactured since the Volkswagen Group purchased the brand in 1999, after the Continental GT. The Flying Spur is essentially a four-door version of the Continental GT, with a stretched wheelbase and greater length for more spacious rear seating. The two models are similarly priced. The 2013 Spur weighs 5,580lbs and carries the same twin-turbo, 6.0-litre W12 engine used in the Continental GT, for an output of 600 horsepower and 533 pound-feet of torque. It has a zero-to-sixty-mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 200mph. The steering column-mounted paddle shifters enable direct access to the six-speed gearbox when the ZF transmission is put into ’S’ or sports mode.
This excellent two-owner Bentley Continental Flying Spur was supplied new by Bentley Essex in September 2006 and from 2007 to 2013, it was fully maintained and serviced by P & A Wood. Purchased by the vendor in March 2014 as an addition to his chauffeur driven fleet of hire cars, it has been fully maintained and used sparingly. Finished in Silver Tempest with magnolia leather interior and burr walnut woodwork, this Bentley Continental Flying Spur is fitted with individual air-conditioning for the rear seats. The car is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in July 2018 and the handbook pack containing the owner’s manual and the fully stamped up service book. This is an opportunity to purchase the ultimate 200mph, luxury Bentley saloon.
