Continental Flying Spur International Debut
The new Continental Flying Spur makes its international debut at the Geneva Salon on March 1st.
The new Continental Flying Spur makes its international debut at the Geneva Salon on March 1st. Sharing heart and soul with its highly successful stablemate, the Continental GT, the Continental Flying Spur is a four-door Grand Tourer born of a coupé.
The new Continental Flying Spur is the fastest four-door in the company’s history, and the fastest in the world, with a top speed of 195mph. It marries the excitement, power, refinement and craftsmanship of the Continental GT with enhanced luxury and space to provide a supreme combination of performance, style and comfort.
If one phrase could sum up the brief for the Continental Flying Spur concept it would be: ‘no compromise’. That clear but challenging ambition meant the Continental Flying Spur would need to offer the highest levels of elegance and comfort while still delivering performance and driving dynamics normally only found in sports cars.
In short it would be a sporting Grand Tourer with substantial rear legroom for passengers, a stunning interior and breathtaking cabin materials; a car capable of travelling great distances with ease while delivering immense driving pleasure - in other words, a consummate Bentley.
Design director Dirk van Braeckel created the car’s bold and contemporary look at exactly the same time as its sister car, the Continental GT.
