Bentley teases Continental Flying Spur ahead of Geneva Motor Show

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur has been around since 2006 and a new model is imminent. Following on from the refreshed two door Continental GT coupé and Continental GTC convertible models, and their Speed variants, Bentley is now teasing us with the redesigned Continental Flying Spur.

Set for a 2014 debut, the car is headed for debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. However, the British marque has promised to reveal more details about the car on 20 February.

The facelift will bring the Flying Spur in-line with its two-door counterparts, with a bolder face and pronounced belt-line. The interior will also be heavily revised with higher grade materials and finishes. Expect specifications to be improved as well, with additional hi-tech features.

Like the Continental GT, the Bentley Flying Spur is set to receive the company’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 mill, producing a maximum power of 373kW (500hp) and a peak torque of 660Nm (487 lb-ft). It will be mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels.

The W12 engine in models further up the hierarchy will get the new 8-speed unit as well, replacing the old 6-speed automatic.
