Road and Track
A dizzying set of standard equipment can be topped with extravagant options. The 2010 Flying Spur comes with automatic four-zone climate control; power closing for the doors; multi-adjustable power seats with a massaging function; a navigation system and audio system that have unfortunately complex secondary controls driven through an LCD screen. Edmunds reports "standard features include 19-inch wheels, an adjustable air suspension, bi-xenon headlamps, four-zone automatic climate control, [and] heated rear seats with lumbar massage." ConsumerGuide notes "a navigation system, wireless cell-phone link, heated front seats with memory, [and] driver-seat lumbar massage" are also standard.
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, though Road & Track calls it the Spur's "coolest" option and admires its "crisp, clear, amazing" sound. And some features need updating; Edmunds takes exception to the "outdated infotainment interface" that makes the navigation system particularly difficult to, er, navigate.
Personalization is the key to making the Spur distinctive-and terribly expensive, too.
Edmunds adds that the 2010 Bentley Flying Spur can be outfitted with "power-adjustable rear seats with a full rear center console, flip-down wooden picnic tables for rear passengers, a full-length three passenger rear seat...[and] a rear-seat entertainment system with twin display screens."
The 2010 Bentley Continental Flying Spur lives up to its desired reputation as one of the most luxurious, feature-laden luxury cruisers on the road.
