Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

It’s a Bentley. That alone should leave you with no illusions that buying and running a Flying Spur will be anything other than hugely expensive.

The purchase price is suitably massive, it will cost a lot to service and the presence of either a V8 or W12 engine under the bonnet inevitably means you’ll spend a lot of money at petrol stations.

Overview

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.

  • Stunning interior
  • Huge performance
  • Mostly comfortable ride
  • Expensive
  • Awful visibility
  • Some road noise
