Model Highlights

The 2008 Bentley Continental Flying Spur is powered by a 6.0L aluminum-alloy, twin-turbo W12 engine--a unique V12 design that actually has four cylinder banks and a very compact overall design for a twelve-cylinder engine. It makes 551 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, which is enough to accelerate to 60 mph in only 4.9 seconds and to a top speed of 195 mph--making it one of the fastest sedans in the world. All Flying Spurs also get a full-time all-wheel drive system to deliver the power smoothly, through a six-speed automatic transmission.

That much power and speed requires good brakes; Bentley claims the huge ventilated discs to be the largest on any production car for sale today. The steering is precise for such a big car as well; it's surprisingly maneuverable for a 209-inch-long car, with a turning circle of less than 39 feet.

Outside of its recognizable Bentley front end and imposing presence on the road, the Flying Spur's roomy, luxurious interior is what really brings buyers to the model. It features hides in many different colors, along with several different wood veneers, all natural, unbleached, and hand-lacquered, with mirror-image grain symmetry in each car. The center console features a distinctive Breitling timepiece, revised for 2008, while the steering wheel boasts hand-stitched leather trim, pedals are finished with stainless-steel covers, and the air vents have real chrome handles.

The Flying Spur includes all of the high-end luxury equipment that you would find in the over-$100,000 price range, such as separate rear climate-control settings, power latches for all doors, lumbar-adjustable front seats, and a screen-driven control system that includes navigation features.

Like other Bentley models, Flying Spurs are very well equipped, and options are treated as a means of personalizing the car. Examples include upgraded 20-inch wheels, knurled-chrome trim, an alloy fuel-filler cap, premium Chestnut and Olive Ash veneers, front-seat lumbar massaging, a power trunklid, a TV tuner, Sirius satellite radio, and a heated, hide-trimmed steering wheel.


Pros

Overall performance; mix of modern exterior with traditional luxury; interior comfort; distinctive interior materials; exclusivity relative to "mainstream" luxury brands.


Model News

For 2008, Bentley's Continental Flying Spur gets a number of standard-equipment upgrades, along with several new optional features and colors. The electronic stability control system now has a Sport Traction mode, Bluetooth hands-free calling functionality has been improved with new dialing features and expanded cell phone compatibility, and a new thin-film driver-information panel are all standard, along with a new Breitling timepiece and Sirius satellite radio compatibility. A three-spoke steering-wheel design is newly available.

Two new exterior colors, Cumbrian Green and Granite, join the palette, while Newmarket Tan and Cumbrian Green leather hide colors are new interior hues.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Flying Spur, part of Bentley's family of more modern-looking and sleekly styled Continental models is, perhaps to sum it up best, an exclusive, sporty luxury sedan fit for the rich and famous who prefer to drive themselves. The tremendous detail and craftsmanship inside is what separates the Flying Spur from some luxury sedans from Mercedes-Benz or Lexus that cost quite a bit less. The value for the Flying Spur is in that, plus its exclusivity and its astounding comfort for long trips. In addition, the Flying Spur is one of the fastest sedans in the world in terms of top speed.

Summary
Bentley Motors, Inc. (Bentley) is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2011 Continental GT, GTC, and Flying Spur vehicles, manufactured from July 2006 through June 2010 and equipped with carbon ceramic brake discs. In the affected vehicles, the stainless steel screws that secure the brake rotors may fail after being exposed to salty conditions.

Consequence
Failure of the securing screws may result in a reduction of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

Bentley will notify owners, and dealers will replace the screws, free of charge. The safety recall is planned to begin in early November 2013. Owners may contact Bentley at 1-800-777-6923. Bentley's number for this campaign is RE13/14.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
