The Bentley Continental Flying Spur (2006 - 2013) is the second
Bentley manufactured since Volkswagen Group purchased the brand in
1999, after the Continental GT. The Flying Spur is essentially a
four-door version of the GT, with a longer wheelbase and greater
length for more spacious rear seating. The two models are similarly
priced and the Flying Spur carries the same twin-turbo 6.0-litre
W12 used in the Continental GT, for an output of 600bhp. It has a 0
to 60 time of a very impressive 4.9 seconds and a top speed of
195 mph. The steering column-mounted paddle shifters enable
direct access to the six-speed gearbox when the ZF transmission is
in sports mode or the car can be driven at a more leisurely pace in
automatic mode. Twelve inches longer than the GT and sharing the
same permanent four-wheel drive platform and twin-turbo 6.0-litre
W12 engine, although it must be said the Flying Spur is not just
about eye-watering performance, the cabin is whisper quiet at any
speed thanks to the silky engine and the extensive noise insulation
measures that extend to double-pane glazing.

Originally supplied by Charles Hurst Ltd in Belfast on
13th February 2007, they also carried out the first four
services on this Bentley. Clearly a car that has been very well
cared for, although she is currently due a service, this Bentley
offers luxury and comfort in abundance. Finished in dark metallic
blue with magnolia interior, the passenger compartment is the best
place in which to appreciate the Flying Spur; it provides ample
legroom for all four passengers with acres of leather and wood
veneers and all the gadgets you would expect for such a capital
cost. The stereo system was specially created for the car by
premium British hi-fi manufacturer Naim, with 15 speakers driven by
a 1,100-watt amplifier. Supplied with a V5C registration document
and a current MoT test certificate valid until February 2017, this
Bentley Flying Spur is a magnificent vehicle to drive and offers
outstanding value given the modest estimate.
