The British manufacturer Bentley has just celebrated the 40,000th copy of the Flying Spur (photo). After 15 years and three generations of the model, the anniversary car rolled off the production line in Crewe, England. Released in 2005 as a sedan version of the Continental, the Continental Flying Spur featured a W12 engine and all-wheel drive. All of this on the Audi A8 and Volkswagen Phaeton platform.
With the second generation launched in 2013, the model lost the name "Continental" to simply display "Flying Spur". During its career, this generation has notably seen a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
635 hp for the current Bentley Flying Spur
The third generation was released last year, built on the MSB platform shared with the Continental GT and the Porsche Panamera. She takes the place of flagship Bentley after the withdrawal of the Mulsanne. Under the hood, the W12 6.0-liter biturbo boasts 635 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque.
