Bentley continental flying spur

I Bought The Cheapest Bentley Flying Spur In The USA !!

The car called the Bentley Continental Flying Spur was first introduced in 1957. In those days it was a luxury sedan built on the basis of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. The name of the model “Flying Spur” (translated from English as “Flying Spur”) is directly related to British heraldry. The flying spur was depicted on the family coat of arms of the ancient Scottish clan Johnston. The idea to give such a name to the Bentley sedan belonged to Harold T. Johnston. At that time, he served as executive director of the bodywork studio H.J. Mulliner, which was engaged in the development of the body for the Bentley Flying Spur. In contrast to the heraldic meaning of “flying spurs,” the term Continental carries a different meaning. He emphasizes that the Continental Flying Spur sedan is designed for comfortable long-distance travel in continental Europe. The 1957 Flying Spur Sedan was equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine. The release of the Flying Spur sample of those years was discontinued in 1966.

The new era of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur began only in 2005. In fact, it was a 4-door version of the Bentley Continental GT coupe. It was introduced as the fastest luxury sedan from the Bentley company. Like the Continental GT, it was built on the basis of the Volkswagen D platform. The exterior design of the Flying Spur has no significant differences from its fellow GT. But we note that it looks even more impressive, because it has become much longer. The size of the wheelbase of the sedan is 3 065 mm, the length of the car is 5 307 mm, width - 1 918 mm, height - 1 479 mm. The car body is made of steel, which explains the weight of the car, which is 2.5 tons.

Under the hood of the newly-built Continental Flying Spur was a 6-liter W12 engine with two turbochargers. The power of this power unit is 560 hp. with a maximum torque of 650 Nm. It allows a heavy car to accelerate to 100 km / h in just 5.2 seconds. The maximum speed of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is 314 km / h.

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur has all-wheel drive with a Torsen limited-slip differential. The sedan is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission ZF 6HP26. The car has air suspension (front - double-lever, rear - multi-lever), with stabilizers.

The interior of a luxury luxury sedan is superb. Here and high-quality leather trim and wood inserts - all to please the eyes of those who are inside. A high comfort will allow you to enjoy your stay in all this magnificence, even with long journeys.

Currently, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is being assembled at the Bentley plant in the city of Crewe (England). Although until 2006 the car was assembled at the Volkswagen plant in Dresden, Germany. This was due to the absence at that time of the opportunity to collect the car completely at the plant in Crewe. But in 2006, all the necessary conditions for assembling the Flying Spur in Crewe were created.

To date, the main competitor of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is the Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG.
