The Continental Flying Spur perfectly complements the existing range of Bentley models. The Continental GT continues to fulfil our customers’ desire for a dynamic coupe that offers the very essence of Bentley: sporting prowess and Grand Touring performance. Similarly the Arnage range represents a unique proposition: the emotional purchase of a truly bespoke, hand-built and entirely individual limousine. The Continental Flying Spur will appeal to customers seeking a sumptuous four-door Grand Tourer sharing all the virtues of its coupe stablemate: high-performance, timeless design and superb craftsmanship.
Bentley chairman Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen says the distinction between the new Continental Flying Spur and the Bentley Arnage range is simple:
“As Continental Flying Spur production begins, the Arnage will retain its true position as the most exclusive limousine in the world. If you work in a major capital city you might see a Continental Flying Spur a few times a month, but you will only come across an Arnage a few times a year. The Arnage will continue to be a bespoke car with real exclusivity.
“With the Continental Flying Spur we are opening our doors to new customers who value that unique combination of luxury, style, excitement and practicality. Nowhere else will they be able to enjoy a car that possesses all this as well as the dynamic qualities and power of the Continental GT coupe. The Continental Flying Spur promises a new motoring experience and we look forward to welcoming a new breed of discerning customers to our marque.”Published 19 January 2005
