For 15 years of production, the brand’s plant in Crewe collected 40,000 vehicles.

The British plant Crewe assembled the 40,000th Bentley Flying Spur. The model is sold in 68 countries, including the USA, China, Saudi Arabia, Germany and many other European, Middle Eastern and Asian countries. The model was revived in 2005 as a sedan version of the Continental. Then the car bore the name Continental Flying Spur and was equipped with a W12 engine and an all-wheel drive system, which allowed the sedan to confidently pick up speed up to 312 km / h.

The second generation, which has been produced since 2013, received a new name – the Continental prefix is ​​gone, and only the Flying Spur remains. Since then, the model has been constantly improved – in the latest update, the sedan received a 4-liter turbo engine, which is equipped with the Porsche Panamera.

After Bentley abandoned the Mulsanne model with a 6.75-liter engine, the Flying Spur took the place of the flagship in the company’s model line. It is worth noting that the flagship shares the platform and powertrains with the current generation Continental GT.
