The 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur Gets Speed, Too

July 22, 2008
Introduced here at the London motor show today, the new 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed edition is the most powerful four-door car the company has ever produced, according to the Crewe-based automaker.

The Speed's 12-cylinder engine turns out 600 horsepower, good for a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph.

It's also ever so slightly updated from the 2008 version of Bentley's flying sedan, as is the entire four-door lineup. For 2009, Bentley's changed the front and rear ends of the Flying Spur. There's a new, more vertical grille and a more prominent air intake beneath it, while the back end gets a little sleeker. A ton of work has gone into making the F-Spur even quieter than before--there are undertrays, new acoustic glazing, and liners for the wheel wells. Speed editions get subtly tinted grilles, wider tailpipes, and special 20-inch wheels.

Fresh options include an adaptive cruise control system, new leather trim colors, new exterior colors including four two-tone choices, and a Naim audio system with 1,100 watts of power.
