The Flying Spur might be cheap for a Bentley, but it still comes under the 'if you have to ask, you can't afford one' category. Running costs will be very high. Demand should keep resale values strong, though.
Bentley Continental Saloon quality & reliability
The Continental uses many components from the Volkswagen Phaeton limo, but those who sneer should settle into its cabin and note the exemplary quality of the leather, wood and chrome before passing judgement. If only the centre console's buttons weren't so plasticky. We've no reason to doubt the mechanicals, either.
Bentley Continental Saloon safety & security
The Flying Spur's peerless four-wheel-drive traction is combined with electronic safety systems to help you avoid skids, while twin front, side and curtain airbags, and active anti-whiplash front head restraints protect occupants in a shunt. Deadlocks and an alarm help keep the Bentley where you parked it.
