Bentley Flying Spur: Parallel Universe

When Bentley revived the Flying Spur badge back in 2005, it was very clear that it wanted nothing but a four-door Continental GT. It was supposed to be the same exhilarating drive that the Conti GT offered but with the option of being able to experience it from the rear seat too.

As you know, this was before the flagship Mulsanne had made its appearance. But the Mulsanne turned out to be a different beast altogether – it was the new Bentley’s first proper chauffeur-driven limo. But that’s another story. The Continental Flying Spur had a lot more in common with the Conti GT than the Mulsanne had with the Continental Flying Spur. Confusing? Never mind.
