Bentley’s Continental Flying Spur proved that the revived British brand was no one-hit wonder when it was launched in 2005. The four-door companion to the four-seat GT sportscar is claimed to be the fastest four-door in the world, with a top speed of 195 mph.

 

The luxury sedan shares its platform and major drivetrain components with the Continental GT coupe and GTC convertible, including a W-12 engine with twin turbos generating 552 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard, as is a six-speed automatic transmission. It can reach 60 mph in about 5.4 seconds.

 

Standard amenities include four-zone climate control, auto-adjusting suspension, 19-inch wheels and 16-way power driver's seat. As with other cars in this class, each individual car can be extensively customized with factory-available and dealer-installed optional equipment.

 

For 2008, the Spur gets minor updates including a handful of new options, new colors, and upgraded technology. The Spur’s stability control now includes a “sport traction” mode. Like the GT and GTC, the Spur now gets standard Sirius satellite radio, a new Breitling clock, better Bluetooth hardware, and a brake pedal embossed with Bentley’s historic “B” logo.

 

New options for the Flying Spur include a rearview camera, a three-spoke steering wheel, carbon-ceramic brakes, new green or gray paint, and new tan or green leather interiors.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
