Redesigned 2014 Bentley Flying Spur Sketched and Video Teased

|

Following on from the refreshed two-door Continental GT coupe and Continental GTC convertible models and their respective Speed variants, it's almost time for Bentley to reveal the saloon version of the series named the Flying Spur.

The redesigned for the 2014 model year Flying Spur was teased on Monday through a sketch and a video that shows bits and parts of the exterior and interior ahead of its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March, though, Bentley noted that it will share more details about the car on February 20.

The makeover of the Flying Spur will mirror that of its two-door siblings with a more sculpted body featuring a flowing belt line and a new face, and a heavily revised interior with even higher grade materials, new switchgear and additional tech features.

Underneath, the biggest change is expected to be the addition of Bentley's twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 generating a maximum output of 500hp (507PS) and peak torque of 660Nm (487 lb-ft), connected to an 8-speed transmission and all-wheel drive.

Furthermore, Bentley will replace the 6-speed automatic with a new 8-speed unit on the W12-powered models.

Looking forward to seeing this car unveiled.I hope Bentley plans on making a four door sedan as well as a two seater continental

Steve, are you okay? Because didn't the article state that Bentley is making a four door continental called the flying spur? And does the continental already exist?

My only problem with this is that it crosses the a bit to well with the Mulsanne (if I spelled right) This actually may very well take a lot of sells from the Mulsanne.

I meant as in a four door coupe like the rapide,a7,panamera.And the continental is a four seater but I would like to see a more sportier Roadster rival to the Mercedes SL.
