2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur 4dr Sedan AWD (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

A super luxury sedan with 4 wheel drive, 0 to 60 acceleration in 4.8 seconds, and a top speed of 195+ mph (magazine reviews) is not available anywhere currently in this price range except from Bentley. Austin Martin is planning something in next 2+ years. The super huge trunk is great for trips but the acceleration at any speed makes it fun to drive even though it weighs about 5,500 pounds. Our Beluga exterior with chrome wheels and Cognac/Beluga interior looks stunning. Other drivers have actually backed from other lanes at red lights to do a double take. While drivers going the other way have stared or even turned around to get a better look. This car is very roomy, has stunning looks, and has great acceleration and speed!

Favorite Features

I love the acceleration from such a roomy passenger car; however, I added a built-in K40 radar/laser system with a lazer defuser as when you feel like you're going 60 mph you're actually going much faster. The TOTAL leather interior that allows you to order black carpet and dashboard with Cognac elsewhere.

Suggested Improvements

The chrome wheel option comes with cheap gray/silver plastic valve covers. Be sure to order the Bentley "B" Chrome Valve Covers from the dealer for $35. They should have been included. The navigation system uses 8 CDs which is disappointing to say the least! The 2007 Spur does use a DVD navigation system.
