Most people who are afforded the chance to poke around a Bentley go right for the driver's seat, and then probably the bespoke passenger compartment to put their bottom on some fine pleated leather seats. Not Ethan. » 2/20/14 11:07am 2/20/14 11:07am

2014 Bentley Flying Spur: The Jalopnik Review

The Continental Flying Spur was a key player in Bentley's Volkswagen Group-led revival, lo this past decade. The Spur's been made-over for 2014. Is the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur the same stout, Anglo-Saxon war wagon it was, or has it become something even more magisterial? » 7/11/13 12:41pm 7/11/13 12:41pm

Further proof money can't buy taste, a wannabe Duke brother turned this Bentley Continental into a trashy General Lee-replica. No word on whether or not this Daisy Duke is the driver's actual cousin. » 10/12/09 2:30pm 10/12/09 2:30pm

2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur Gets Facelift, "Speed" And…

We're guessing a lot of people forked over the extra change for the tweaked Bentley Continental GT Speed, convincing the product planners at the super-luxo marque to drop the same massaged 6.0-Liter W12 into the company's Continental Flying Spur sedan. Called the Continental Flying Spur Speed, the newly found 48… » 6/09/08 10:20am 6/09/08 10:20am

Spurs Fly in Chicago: Fairmont Adds Bentley to Fleet

We've never stayed at the Fairmont in the City That Works, but we have enjoyed the amenities and excellent cotomer sevis of its San Francisco sister hotel, as opposed to the recent subpar experience we had in Birmingham, AL's Tutwiler. And while the SF house of lodging ranks as one of the finest places we've ever… » 10/18/06 1:15pm 10/18/06 1:15pm

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Part 2

Exterior Design: ****
The Spur offends finely-honed aesthetic sensibilities in detail only: weirdly-shaped rear three-quarter windows, oddly over-sized taillights, incongruous chrome side window surrounds and deadly dull wheels. The Rolls Royce Phantom is the only place you ll find more automotive charisma, and it… » 7/27/05 11:16am 7/27/05 11:16am

Jalopnik Reviews: 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Part 1

Let s get this out of the way first: the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is a German car. Quite apart from the fact that the Spur is built on the VW Phaeton platform and assembled at their Dresden factory, there s nothing remotely British about that way this leather-lined leviathan goes about its business.
