Comes standard with side and side curtain airbags front and rear
The 2010 Bentley Continental Flying Spur is exceptionally rare and expensive, and as such, it hasn't been crash-tested by NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or 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. According to Edmunds, the 2010 Bentley Continental lineup comes "standard with side and side curtain airbags front and rear," while ConsumerGuide points out that "safety features include ABS [and] an antiskid system." Other standard safety features on the 2010 Bentley Continental include active headrests for the rear seats that help reduce the likelihood of whiplash injuries, as well as a modified stability control system on the Speed version that Edmunds reports "has been further enhanced over last year's 'sport traction' mode to be less intrusive."
Visibility from the driver's seat is compromised by the Flying Spur's large pillars. ConsumerGuide describes how "visibility is generally good all around, though thickish front pillars compromise [the] forward view to the corners."
No crash-test results are available, but the 2010 Bentley Continental Flying Spur has a full complement of safety equipment.
