The Bentley Continental Flying Spur was the second Bentley manufactured since the Volkswagen Group purchased the brand in 1999, after the Continental GT. The Flying Spur was essentially a four-door version of the Continental GT, with a stretched wheelbase and greater length for more spacious rear seating. The two models were 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.
Finished in Silver Tempest with a black leather interior and burr walnut woodwork, this excellent Bentley Continental Flying Spur was originally registered on 28th July 2006 and comes with the optional sunroof. This example has a comprehensive full Bentley service history as follows;
