2013 Bentley Continental Flying Spur Spy VideoTue, 14 Aug 2012
We have video of the 2013 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, in W12 and V8 guises, ahead of a 2013 debut.
It’s already two years since we saw the new Bentley Continental GT, since when we’ve had the arrival of the V8 Continental GT and the new GT Speed. But still the Flying Spur – the big saloon version of the Continental GT – hasn’t been updated.
But that’s close to changing, with a new Bentley Continental Flying Spur on the way, and we’ve grabbed video of the new Flying Spur out testing ahead of a debut, which could be as early as Paris next month but is more likely to happen at Geneva 2013.
Don’t be fooled by the bolted on bits that make the Flying Spur look like an S-Class Mercedes – that’s just Bentley’s version olf the black and white camouflage most car maker use – and instead expect an understated makeover much the same as the Continental GT got.

That means a gentle makeover of the interior and exterior changes that are evolutionary rather than revolutionary. The front is likely to stay faithful to the nose on the GT, but at the back we should see rectangular lights with oval tail pipes, and the same differentiation between V8 and W12 versions (yes, the new Flying Spur will also get the new Bentley/Audi V8 as an option) with the V8 getting a sportier look and figure of eight tail pipes.
