Following the updates offered on the Continental GT model range, Bentley has now presented its new Flying Spur (which was long overdue) model at ongoing Geneva Motor Show. Although pictures of the car were revealed by Bentley few weeks back it was officially launched at Geneva before a large gathering of international media. Just like with the other models, the Flying Spur has received both exterior and interior changes, while the engine only received some minor upgrades.


A notable detail on the new car is that Bentley has dropped the Continental nomenclature in the new Flying Spur. At a glance it seems as if the changes are minor, but Bentley say that the new car has received a total of 600 new parts, while only the sun visors, grab handles, armrests, some of the front console and controls have been carried over from the older model.






Exterior changes include a new font fascia, the chrome grill is more up-right, the headlights have jewel-like LED lamps which were first seen on the Mulsanne. The front fenders have been revised and an elegant Bentley "B" motif has been added on it. The rear receives a swooping longer and lower boot lid, trunk-mounted spoiler along with slimmer ellipse-shaped LED tail lamps. One of the major motives of the designers was to reduce the weight of the new car and they achieved this by constructing the bonnet and front fenders from aluminum which resulted in shedding 50kg over the older model.
