MT's Carlos Lago Finds Bentley Continental GT Speed Surprisingly Agile


Read more

Nobody in their right mind would ever think of associating the big slab-like look of the Bentley Continental GT Speed and the huge inherent weight with sporty handling and a fingertip-precise driving experience.

However, it seems that somehow, the VW-owned luxury automaker has managed to defy physics, as Motor Trend magazine's Carlos Lago reports that the car is surprisingly agile, and much better to drive around the twisties than anticipated.

MotorTrend Goes All the Way to China to Experience the New Bentley Flying Spur

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur was always hampered by one thing – no, I'm not talking about VW Phaeton’s platform, because that was excellent and gave the driver huge confidence. The thing that hampered the car was the fact it was called Continental, meaning it shared a lot in common with its (cheaper) two-door sibling the Continental GT – it was a version of that model with two extra doors.

New Bentley Flying Spur Bows Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show [Photos & Videos]

The 2014 Bentley Flying Spur. was one of two new cars we had the opportunity to show you earlier today before their official unveiling, the other one being the Audi RS Q3.

You probably noticed that we have not used the Continental moniker. That's because Bentley doesn't either, even though the car is essentially a redesign of the outgoing Continental Flying Spur and continues to be a sibling of the Continental GT coupe and Continental GTC convertible models, which have already been updated.

While it continues to use the underpinnings of the Continental Flying Spur, the new model has received a complete exterior makeover, with the only part of the car that reminds you of its roots, being the front end with the quad headlamps and cross-hair chrome grille. Then again, even the headlights have a new shape and now feature jewel-like LEDs.

The lowered roofline, the sharper and more sculpted lines on the profile and the squatted rear end with rectangular tail light clusters, give the Flying Spur an edgier and more dynamic look than the rounder Continental sedan.

It's not only about the styling, though, as changes made to the body structure with the use of lighter materials and additional weight savings throughout the car, make the Flying Spur 50 kg (110 pounds) lighter than the first generation car, despite offering "additional refinement measures, enhanced technology specification and stronger structure", as stated by Bentley.

In case you think the Stig smashing the Ariel Atom’s lap record in the Pagani Huayra is the only exciting thing that happened in the first episode of Top Gear's 19th season, you’d better reconsider.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from watching the BBC TV car show over the years it’s that you can count on the three hosts to do much more than test cars or hand over the keys of the latest supercar to their tame racing driver for a quick lap around the TG test track.
