6. THE BENTLEY FLYING SPUR HAS LOST A BIT OF ITS BRITISHNESS
It might represent the very best of British, but such is the appetite for the Flying Spur that Bentley has been forced to temporarily move production of its four-door luxobarge to VW’s Dresden factory in a bid to meet global demand.
“The new Flying Spur shows a significant increase in volume,” a Bentley spokesman told Top Gear. “We have therefore decided to assemble a limited number of Flying Spurs – around 100 – in November and December in Dresden.”
Bentley says the Dresden plant will work only on final assembly of the cars, with their interiors and powertrain work remaining in Crewe.
