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 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 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 600hp and 533lb/ft of torque. It has a 0-60mph 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 impressive Bentley presents extremely well in white with a magnolia leather trim. With low mileage, this Flying Spur has the feel and look of a car that has been well looked after. This is borne out in the service book which boasts ten dealer stamps. The vendor informs us that this handsome Bentley forms part of his chauffeur driven fleet and is a strong favourite amongst his more discerning clientele.
Showing just 58,190 miles from new, this stunning saloon is offered to auction with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until October 2019 and includes the cherished registration D6 HEC. This is an inexpensive opportunity to purchase a 200mph luxury Bentley saloon.
