As the driver's Bentley sedan, there's only one real natural competitor, the Rolls-Royce Ghost.
As the driver's sedan of the Rolls-Royce range, it closely matches the Flying Spur in terms of power, luxury, equipment, and style.
Mercedes-Benz's S600, while not springing from so exclusive a niche, offers much in the way of a similar driving experience; the S63 and S65 AMG models go to even more extreme levels of large-sedan performance.
All S Class models come up a touch short in terms of opulence, however.
The Maserati Quattroporte takes a sportier angle at the luxury sedan theme, with Italian flair and style.
Porsche's Panamera offers even more incredible sporting performance, as well as a very well-trimmed interior, but its slightly awkward exterior and more ordinary interior likely take it out of the equation for the Bentley shopper.
