The 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur has been caught testing and the car was camouflaged to make it look like the upcoming Mercedes-Benz S-class. There were pseudo Benz head and tail lights. The Bentley Flying Spur is expected to take some cues from the 2011 Continental GT and 2012 GTC. Just like the two, the Flying Spur too will sit on a carry-over platform. The four-door would get complete sheet metal makeover. There would be reshaped headlights, hood and new front and rear fascias. There is an addition of fender ‘shoulders’ over the rear wheels.
The new Bentley Continental Flying Spur will house a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine. There would be a power output increase from 552 BHP to 567 BHP in case of the normal sedan whereas the high performance speed model would see an increase from 600 BHP to 616 BHP. However, the 2014 Continental Flying Spur will be offered in only all-wheel drive. The upgraded version should hit the roads sometime in 2014 and the price of the same is bound to go up by a slight amount. Bentley currently bring the Continental Flying Spur to India via the CBU route and the new model will be offered her as well. The current price of the car is Rs. 1.74 crore (ex-showroom).
Automakers can some time be hilarious, as is the case with Bentley. By camouflaging the Continental Flying Spur to look like the S-Class, the company has got even more attention. This is not the first time the British super car maker tried this trick. Bentley did the same thing with the original Flying Spur by camouflaging it like the W220 S-Class. However how could Bentley forget that there front grille and wheels are easily recognizable and difficult to miss. A good effort none the less. Looks like Bentley is a huge fan of the S-Class and the Flying Spur also rivals the S55 AMG.
