SEE LOCAL CLASSIFIEDS

The Spur's front seats are supportive yet soft, and the back seats are equally plush--but it's a bit tighter in back than in some other limousine-class cars. All seating positions are swaddled in top-drawer materials and bespoke craftsmanship; the Spur is hand-fitted with leather, wood, and chrome details that make "cheaper" cars like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class seem pedestrian.

Since it's so rare and so expensive, the Flying Spur has not been crash-tested by NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), nor by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). A full roster of airbags and safety features-including side and side-curtain airbags and electronic stability control-is included.

A dizzying set of standard equipment can be topped with extravagant options. The 2011 Bentley Flying Spur comes with automatic four-zone climate control; power closing for the doors; multi-adjustable power seats with a massaging function; and a navigation and audio system that have unfortunately complex secondary controls driven through an LCD screen. Bentley offers adaptive cruise control as an option, along with a Naim 1,000-watt audio system that hasn't impressed editors as much as its price tag shocks them. Personalization is the key to making the Spur distinctive-and terribly expensive, too.

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.
