Whether it’s to the touch or sight, there are certain (high) expectations placed on a car that surpasses the million Ringgit mark. With the new Flying Spur, Bentley has not only met those expectations but surpassed them.
Our hopelessly high import taxes aside, you really do see why these marques costs an arm a leg and a few “sell-able” organs. Every section, every corner, every component and fine detail appears to have been given hours of deliberation before it’s put into production.
The completely restyled body, possibly one of the most elegant Bentley has ever sculpted, is accompanied with a somewhat new name. The new 3rd generation model which coincides with the company’s 100th year anniversary, bears the Flying Spur name plate. The Continental moniker from before, is no more.
What a way to usher in a new century and to extend the brand’s legacy as the purveyors of some of the most luxurious cars man has ever seen.
