Review

There are plenty of luxury cars that make more sense, but few have the sense of occasion you get with the Bentley Flying Spur. Flawed, but we can see why you might.

As its name suggests, this limited edition model commemorates the arrival of the latest Flying Spur. The changes are mainly superficial, so it's best avoided unless you really desire bespoke ‘First Edition’ badging.

The 542bhp V8-powered Flying Spur is cheaper than the W12 and still indecently quick (0-60mph takes 4.0sec). To our ears, it also sounds sweeter than the W12 engine, so it's where our money would go.
