Flying Spur? This really doesn't sound as if it has something to do with a car. What's your
association with it? But this nomenclature has tradition at Bentley, since the 1950's Continental
4-door version was called so, inspired by the family emblem of the erstwhile boss of the
vehicle's coach builder Mulliner. Falling back on this name - despite its incomprehensible
gives proof of Volkswagen's sense for tradition.
But it slackens when it comes to money. After all the Continental Flying Spur is a VW
Phaeton in disguise. Admittedly, the camouflage is one of distinction. The faults that
Bentley lovers might find in a few details remain. The engine's that cranks 560bhp out is
certainly not amongst those things, as it is exclusively reserved for the British cars.
