(Source Bentley )  A little over two years ago Bentley Motors stunned the world by unveiling a Grand Tourer masterpiece, the Continental GT coupe. Now, only 12 months after the first deliveries of that extraordinarily successful car, we are proud to announce the arrival of the fastest four-door in the company's history; a car that shares the heart and soul of the 198mph coupe from which it is born – the Continental Flying Spur.

The Continental Flying Spur combines the exquisite design and peerless craftsmanship for which Bentley is renowned with the dynamics and power of the Continental GT to provide an unparalleled motoring experience that will attract a new breed of discerning customers to the marque.

With 552bhp at your disposal and an advanced all-wheel drive system to ensure that power is delivered in a controlled and measured fashion, the Continental Flying Spur has the performance to match its appearance.

As with every Bentley, this is a driver's car first and foremost. In common with the Continental GT coupé, the car's extremely stiff steel chassis allows the advanced air suspension system to regulate safely the handling and balance of a four-door with supercar performance: a top speed in excess of 190mph and 0-62mph (100km/h) in around five seconds. However, such is the breadth of its dynamic capability, the Continental Flying Spur also delivers supreme comfort for long, relaxed journeys

“Over the course of its development the car was subjected to a rigorous drive programme that saw it complete nearly a million miles on proving grounds, test tracks and roads across the world,” reveals Dr Ulrich Eichhorn, member of the board, engineering. “The result is a car whose breadth and capability, in any weather, on any road surface, is simply awesome.”

Bentley’s renowned powertrain development was rightly praised at the launch of the Continental GT coupe and the combination of that phenomenal twin-turbocharged, 12-cylinder engine with a smooth, six-speed ‘paddleshift’ ZF gearbox with Tiptronic actuation is carried over into the Continental Flying Spur.


  • An all-new four-door Grand Tourer that blends peerless Bentley craftsmanship and design with modern technologies.
  •  Exhilarating supercar performance thanks to a top speed in excess of 190mph and a 0-62mph (100km/h) time of around five seconds.
  •  Powered by a 6-litre, twin-turbocharged, 12-cylinder engine engineered and built at Bentley's factory in Crewe. Tuned to provide not just a massive 552bhp but also the legendary Bentley ‘torque' from low revs.
  •  A high-tech, all-wheel-drive system for exceptional stability and grip in any conditions.
  •  A stunning cabin that uses exquisite Bentley design and quality to create a spacious, welcoming interior. A classic mix of leather and wood veneers are combined to give a contemporary but timeless appearance.
  •  Over 11 leather hides are used to make a complete set of upholstery in the Continental Flying Spur.
  •  Spacious rear legroom provides total comfort for all passengers with a five or four-seat layout optional at the time of purchase.
  •  Designed and developed in parallel with the Continental GT coupé at Bentley's design studios and facilities in Crewe to ensure consistency in their visual appearance and in their on-going engineering and development programme.
  •  Pricing for the new Continental Flying Spur is yet to be finalised but Bentley expects a similar price structure to that of the Continental GT coupé.

     The new Bentley Continental Flying Spur will go on sale in Spring 2005.
