What an amazing car, It has absolutely everything you require, German build quality and engineering, British luxury status, Power beyond belief, the great sound, the sumptious luxurious interior, road holding, drivability, sex appeal, and gives you the feeling that life is good.. I have owned and driven many cars, but this is by far the very best.. Well done
BENTLEY CONTINENTAL FLYING SPUR 6.0 W12 4dr Auto (Review date: 13th December '10)
The flying spur is superb. The power and torque this beast has is unbelieve, for such as big and heavy car it destroys every car on the road, even in the wet with its AWD.
It has ample room both in the cabin and boot. The only down side in terms of functionality is the satnav display, the graphics are poor. The other features such as a/c are annoyingm since they are accessed in the computer. However looking at the design of the new 2011 contiential gt, it looks like these probelms have been addressed.
Although it is big, it is very easy to judge on narrrow roads and tight corners. The 20" optional wheels ride a bit hard, but the AWD and having the suspension in comfort make life a bit easier.
Running costs: ummm.... well it costs me about £100 a week to fill up and averages about 13mpg. The service and cost of tyres are very expensive, but i will not complain since i would not expect anthing less form such a prestige brand. Reliablity is the best i have ever seen, the w12 engine is solid, and it has 2 batteries, just incase.
Verdict: Stunning car, thrilling to drive in any condtion. Great refinement and blend of luxury, with a supercar performace on hand. 5*
