Bentley has officially showcased their Flying Spur Series 51 at the Geneva Motor Show. The Series 51 models were first seen on the Bentley Continental GT and GTC, but now the package is also an option for the Continental Flying Spur. The Series 51 are named after Bentley’s first official styling department in the 1950s.
Series 51 designs allow customers to tailor their cars to their individual tastes. They can choose from an extensive line-up of special colors, materials and options. Bentley has reserved the limited-edition Sapelli Pomelle veneer for the Series 51 Flying Spur and a range of further options, including Bentley’s leather trimmed child seat and scatter cushions for the rear seats, may also be specified. They have also created an unique Series 51 graphite-finished nine-spoke, 19 inch sports alloy wheel, while twin Series 51 wing badges, positioned behind the front wheel arches, complete the bespoke look.
All the latest Continental Flying Spurs, including Series 51 models, may now be specified with blue brake callipers and front wing vents. These sleek vents, positioned to the rear of the front wheel arches, are set into a tooled wing panel and feature a black or chrome mesh finish.
In addition, all Continental Flying Spur and Supersports models are now specified as standard with a 30GB touchscreen infotainment system. An 8-inch screen displays the car’s audio system, telephone, ride and comfort settings as well as the very latest navigation system, which uses both an in-car hard-disc drive and a DVD player to access route data. It also utilises dynamic navigation to avoid heavy traffic spots, locates destinations using geo-tagged photos from an SD memory card and is Google Maps-compatible for most markets.
The British luxury carmaker presented the 2012 model of the Continental Flying Spur and its stablemate the Flying Spur Speed already in November, but these bespoke cars now are for sale.
