Heritage. Luxury. Prestige. Words all synonymous with the centuries old Bentley name. For as long as the storied automotive brand has been producing cars, it has been known as one of the best in the world. Superior craftsmanship, attention to detail, and a need to be the best has propelled Bentley though the decades to be the brand it is now. In the last 2 years a shift has begun. What was becoming a stale product line up, is now a fresh and modern take on best selling models. Part of that refresh includes the incredible new Bentley Flying Spur.
In recent years it was known as basically a 4 door continental. It’s styling, especially in the early models, was bulbous and uninspiring. The Spurs of the 50’s and 60’s were also quite soft and rounded but with flowing fenders that gave it an elegant shape. Fast forward to the launch of a leaner, sharper, more focused automobile. With creases that give the car definition and style, not just where the fenders and hood connect. The wider flatter front grill feels imposing and has much more presence. The shape and styling harks back to the 80’s and 90’s that saw some other incredible designs like the Brooklands and the Azure T.
The new Flying Spur helps to drive home the new direction Bentley has gone. With the GT and it more modern look and streamlined shape, it was important that Flying Spur follow suit. What made this version of the flying spur different was that in the past, it was considered a four door continental. This time it stands alone in its styling cues and design.
The upgraded styling didn’t stop on the cars exterior. The Flying Spur has an all new cabin and controls, some of which are from the incredible new Continental GT. But don’t let the shiny new gadgets and touch screens distract you from what the car personifies. One hundred years of Heritage, Luxury and Prestige. The all new Bentley Flying Spur is available now at all three O’Gara Bentley locations.
