The combination of a twin-turbocharged 12-cylinder engine, a six-speed ZF gearbox with Tiptronic actuation and an advanced air suspension supporting a permanent all-wheel system are carried over into the Continental Flying Spur.
The generous wheelbase of the Continental Flying Spur's chassis means spacious rear legroom for passengers and an impressive canvas on which Bentley's interior design team could set to work.
