Blown Away By It !!!

After owning many high end vehicles, the end result renders the Bentley Flying Spur at the top of the list. Power and quality are present in all aspects of this creation. I was really expecting the built quality to be similar to a top of the line Mercedes-Benz. Rude awakening for me. This monster is comparable to a jet to say the least. However, it lacks some new technology that the other manufactures? have equipped their cars with. Night vision, blind spot detection, visual parking sensors, and quite a few cameras. Shortly after, I realized that this vehicle is a timeless classic that doesn't focus and pride it's self on too many bells and whistles. Sure they have access to all the technology, being owned by the VW group, but why did they choose not to incorporate any of these features in this Continental? Well, Bentley is known for its quality and performance. Everything about this car is yelling out craftsmanship, build quality, and personalization. Not necessarily a high tech space ship but rather a cocoon for peace and quiet to get away from it all. At the end of the day, what is especially impressive is the interior and its use of real wood and the best of leather that seamlessly comes together. This vehicle doesn't just get you from point A to point B, it let's everyone know you have arrived.


Quiet, Powerful and Gorgeous

I have just completed purchase of a Flying Spur after much shopping and testing. While I admit to being swayed by the concept of "buying my wife a Bentley", I must comment on the sheer presence of this particular saloon. It is beautiful! The FS's handling and accelleration belie it's enormous weight, but the benefit of so much mass is that it is smooth, sure footed and very, very quiet. I look forward to "borrowing" the FS when "necessary". As a reference, my other car (a CLS 55 AMG w/ Kleeman Stage 1) is a luxury, 520hp, daily driver. The accelleration of the Bentley is different in that it is so smooth that you don't realize how quickly you're gaining speed, as opposed to the viceral, raw thrust of the AMG. If I must criticise, I suppose that I do prefer GPS navigators of Japanese origin, however, the Bentley GPS will suffice. It is there that the dislike ends. The solidity of even the most ordinary function is apparent. We absolutely love the back massagers! The shifting options may be too much for the wife, but I love paddle shifters. Even the plungers for the air vents have a smooth, solid feel. The fit, finish and styling must be experienced personally to appreciate them fully. I have no regrets and my wife is thrilled!

My assistant and I love my Bentley. When he drives me places, it is nice to know that I am in car that is more expensive than most around me. It makes me feel good. I have not problem with car, and it has huge back seat. All my son's friends are jelous of him when he drives it with his friends. They all have Mercedes benz and Bmw, but I have Bentley.
