Bentley will release their updated Bentley Continental Flying Spur next year. Autocar reports that the underneath the interesting test mules, the design is near production ready. Bentley are expected to release the final product towards the end of 2013, perhaps at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The new Bentley Continental Flying Spur should feature a brand new design that closely mirrors the new Continental GT range. Expect power to remain the same as the current Bentley Continental GT and GTC models. This means the updated W12 engine with an output of 575hp, a 0-100km/h sprint of around five seconds and a top speed just short of 318km/h.
The 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur will probably retain the same wheelbase as the outgoing model. Inside, trim levels will be improved and a higher grade cabin will be fitted. The Flying Spur will be an important model for Bentley, especially in US and Chinese markets.
