Introduction

What Car? says...

Usually, the saloon version of a car is the sensible one; worthy but about as exciting as a bowl of white rice. However, there are exceptions to every rule, like the 207mph Bentley Flying Spur.

A rival to the Rolls-Royce Ghost, as well as high-end versions of more mainstream luxury cars such as the Mercedes S-Class, it’s essentially a Continental GT with two extra doors. And given how much of a step forward the latest Conti GT is, that’s a pretty good starting point.

True, the Flying Spur isn’t for shy and retiring types; it’s almost five and a half metres long, for starters, with a front grille that’s as wide as most cars. But then you don’t buy a Bentley to blend.

Indeed, a big part of the allure of a car like this is the option to make your car a personal statement. Assuming you have the money, the only real limitation is your imagination.

Beyond that, though, is it any good? Or are you really just paying for the name and the history? That’s what we’ll be exploring in this review. And before you buy any luxury car (or, indeed, any car full stop) be sure to check out our latest deals.
