2010 Bentley Continental Flying Spur Reviews
Inspired by the company's Continental Flying Spur of 1957, the modern sedan is called a "grand tourer born of a coupe." It has essentially everything offered in the Continental GT coupe, including a 552-horsepower, twin-turbocharged W-12, along with enhanced luxury and space. Like the Continental GT coupe, the Continental Flying Spur has all-wheel drive. Bentley claims acceleration from zero to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds.

Though a sedan, the Continental Flying Spur closely matches the appearance of the Continental GT Coupe. Bentley says the two were developed in parallel to create consistency in their visual appearance.
Leather surfaces and wood veneers provide a sumptuous feel to the inside of the Continental Flying Spur, which can be equipped with four or five seats. An optional radar-based adaptive cruise control system manages the throttle and brakes to maintain a preset distance behind the vehicle ahead.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the Continental Flying Spur's 6.0-liter W-12 moves the 5,500-pound vehicle with great ease.
Standard safety equipment includes:
