|Odometer reading||22,474 miles|
|Estimate||£18,000 - £21,000|
|Result||Sold - £20,440|
Drive a modern Formula 1 car around Silverstone and you will be subject to something in the region of 900bhp punching you through the corners with twin turbos then spooling up again and reaching 60mph in 4.5 seconds before pushing on towards 200mph. Impressive figures you’ll agree but add another three seats and the very last word in leather-clad luxury and you are now looking at Bentley’s Continental Flying Spur. These are extraordinary motorcars, extremely well equipped with a six litre, W12 engine and permanent four-wheel drive on the outside with an interior that creates an emotional reach far beyond that of its teutonic rivals. It is with a sense of occasion whenever one slides behind the steering wheel of a Flying Spur and with the expanse of wood and leather; it is easy to see why.
This stunning low mileage example is presented in silver with beige leather interior. The sumptuous interior is enhanced by the many factory options such as climate control, air conditioning for the rear passengers as well as the front, satellite navigation, heated front and rear seats to name a few. This superb Bentley has been in the keeping of the present owner since 2008/2009 during which time it has been regularly serviced at Jack Barclay’s Service Centre in Wandsworth with the last service being carried out in September/October 2019. A wonderful example of this majestic model providing one of the most comfortable rides in motoring. Offered at a fraction of its original cost, this surely must be one of the best available.
