Bentley Continental Flying Spur

Bentley managed to develop the new Continental Flying Spur. Under the hood it hides a 12-cylinder engine capable of generating 600 BHP, offering pure driving experience and uncompromising performance. The specialists have modified the front and rear design. The new, more upright grille and bolder lower air intake accentuate the distinctive profile of the carmaker, while the new rear bumper delivers a more aggressive and sleek appearance. The new model also features an aluminum-intensive suspension with revised spring and dampers, but also a new bespoke 19-inch Pirelli UHP tires for outstanding levels of ride quality, comfort and refinement. Bentley provides three new colors and four duo-tone paint combinations for the exterior. The power produced by the engine enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 200 mph. The new 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur features a new bright chrome radiator grille at the front that has a more pronounced square edge. Since its launch in 2005, the Continental Flying Spur model has achieved a well-deserved reputation for outstanding cabin refinement. For the new model range, the engineering team was tasked to build on this success and create a unique cabin ambience with best in class refinement and comfort. Using the same technology as the 20-inch performance tire introduced on the 2008 Continental GT Speed, the 19-inch version is specially developed to optimize ride comfort and noise suppression, while providing outstanding grip and agility. All Continental Flying Spur model are equipped with the largest brakes of any production passenger car on sale today, with 405 mm x 36 mm ventilated front discs and 335 mm x 22 mm rears. Bentley is the first car manufacturer to use a next-generation Digital Signal Processor in its audio system, enhancing the listening experience still further.
