Bentley Continental Flying Spur Leaks Early, Looks Fresh

And actually, it's just the Bentley Flying Spur now.

The official deets of the new Bentley Continental Flying Spur sedan drop tomorrow, but that hasn’t stopped pics and news about it from sneaking out early. Starting with a change to the name—in order to distance it from the Continental coupe and ‘vert, Bentley’s just calling the four-door the Bentley Flying Spur now.

In line with the new, simpler name, the Flying Spur scores a design that pushes it a bit away from the Continentals and towards the big Mulsanne sedan—a more stately front end, a more squared-off rear, and a look that overall makes the car appear nice and dramatically long. It’s powered by a 616 horsepower, 580 lb-ft version of Bentley’s 6.0 liter twin turbo W12, connected to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic; top speed should be exactly 200 mph, while 0-60 should go past in 4.3 seconds. Heated and cooled seats, a rear-seat entertainment system, and the softest leathers, most gorgeous woods and metals will likely all be on the options list—but with a base price expected around $200K, well, you’ll pay for it. We’ll bring you more details as they come…[Shout-out to The New York Times and CarScoop!]
