THE BENTLEY FLYING SPUR

Evolved from the popular Bentley Continental GT Sports Coupe, the four-door Sports Saloon version named the Continental Flying Spur was introduced in 2005. Adorned in extreme luxury with a spectacular design lending itself to the legendary Sports Saloons produced by Bentley in the past, these executive top-of-the-line motorcars soon became very popular among the business elite around the Globe. Powered by the strong and very torquey 6-liter, W12 engine, the performance of the Continental Flying Spur didn't disappoint either.

Motor Trend raved upon their first test drive: "The moment of truth, when it came, was almost an anticlimax. Almost, because watching the speedo needle kiss 320 kph--200 mph--while storming down the fast lane of a German autobahn is, like reaching the summit of Everest, a rather special experience for any driver. It's just that the Bentley Continental Flying Spur made it seem, well, a bit too effortless".

"Think 200 mph in a road car, and you'll invariably think of some shrieking, low-slung Italian exotic--all noise and carbon fiber; all edge and sweaty palms. Yet here we were, arrowing along the M92 toward Munich in a 5450-pound luxury limousine with leather on the roof lining, burled walnut on the dash, and Mozart on the CD player. At close to 200 mph. Suddenly, I understood exactly what the Continental Flying Spur was all about."

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur was delivered new to the North American market and has remained here since. The luxurious sports saloon is finished in business-like black over a black leather interior, and the cabin is adorned with a long list of amenities including beautiful wood-veneer and aluminum finishes. The Bentley has had owners all over the US, and total mileage is recorded over 92,000 miles at the time of cataloging. The CARFAX report notes a sideswipe accident in 2014. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a spectacular four-door Bentley who's retail price when new rivaled that of a modestly sized home.
