Bentley’s Continental Grand Tourer was the first car released by the British luxury automaker under the stewardship of Volkswagen. Following the Continental’s success, the Continental Flying Spur (actually just Flying Spur) was released in 2006 as the four-door variant. This 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur that we’ve got up for sale wears just 20,102 miles since new, and is great if you’re on the lookout for quintessential British luxury wrapped in a four door package without the wallet sting of a brand new one. Car prices are at all time highs globally due to the economic situation, so why not be a savvy buyer and snap up this low-miler instead?
Dressed in a very unassuming gray paintwork, this 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur is the car for those who want to travel in sublime luxury, but not shout about it. That being said, the iconic design of this car, including its quad headlamps, sleek side profile and Bentley ‘B’s in various places, it can’t really be mistaken for anything else, especially when it clocks in at 208 inches long. This car also comes with a sunroof. Let’s open the door and step across the stainless steel Bentley sill plates into the cabin, that’s predominantly black, with wood and aluminum trim. Even though this car is from 2006, you’ve got a host of techy stuff, including electrically adjustable and heated seats, four zone climate control, digital screen infotainment system, multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, a Breitling clock in the center console, and Bentley’s signature ‘organ-stop’ air vents. There’s also a premium sound system to ensure that your choice of music sounds at its best. Gaze downwards, and your feet rest on Bentley monogrammed floor mats.
A car with such poise and presence deserves a worthy powerplant, such is the 6.0L W12 twin turbocharged engine that lies beneath the hood of this 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur. Pushing out 552hp and 479lb-ft, let us remind you that these were entry-level supercar figures back in 2006. A six-speed ZF automatic transmission sends the power and torque to all four wheels via a Torsen permanent all wheel drive system. Headline figures include zero to sixty in a hair under five seconds, and an official top speed of 195mph, which is widely believed to be very conservative.
