Even among equal luxosedans the 2016 Bentley Flying Spur may be a little more equal than others. More wood and leather probably goes into the Flying Spur than found on many working ranches, and whether in V-8 or W-12 form, own the big Bentley and no matter where you’re going it’s clear that you’ve already arrived.
Bentley used to badge the Flying Spur as a Continental, but Bentley split its lineup in 2016, making the coupes and convertibles Continentals and the sedan the Flying Spur.
The Flying Spur isn’t adorned with extraneous details. The position of the oval LED headlights have been swapped from the Continental; on the Flying Spur they’re bigger on the outside than they are on the inside. Compared to the Continental, the grille on the Flying Spur is more upright, and the Spur is sharper nose to tail; the fenders are more flared, the pillars are more steeply raked, and the taillights are squared off. Spotting the differences between the V-8 and W-12 models requires a sharp eye: V-8 cars have red badges, a black grille, and figure-eight exhaust tips. W-12 cars have oval exhausts, a chromed grille, and black badges. We hope there’s not a test on these later.
