2015 Bentley Flying Spur vs. Its Competition

2015 Bentley Flying Spur V8
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2015 Bentley Flying Spur is one of the most exclusively finished and priced four-doors in the world.

Only a handful of cars meet its extravagant heights.

One direct challenger is the Rolls-Royce Ghost, a paragon of bespoke British motoring, with maybe a more sedate touch, and less eagerness to engage the driver than the Spur.

Quite the opposite of that, the Aston Martin Rapide S gives up all pretense of practicality for its stunning looks.

There's virtually no adult-sized room in back to speak of, but--well, have you seen it? The new Mercedes S-Class has been developed expressly to drift upmarket into Rolls-Royce and Bentley territory at its upper reaches.

A dramatic interior, lavish equipment, and far-reaching safety technology are as much its hallmarks as its in-car fragrance dispenser.
