The Appeal

During its infancy, Bentley was synonymous with luxury and performance and while the former remained part of the brand’s ethos under Rolls-Royce, some felt Bentley’s had lost their edge dynamically. All this was to change under Volkswagen ownership, with a return to their sporting routes marked by the arrival of the 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 Continental in 2003. The Flying Spur was to be the four-door saloon variant and proved equally pleasurable to drive or be driven in. 
We’re delighted to offer this very fetching 2006 example which has covered just 55,367 miles from new.
