It was difficult to tire out the price of the midsize crossover for a mark of 2 million 10 years ago, and only those who had own oil well thought of Bentley Continental Flying Spur. But times were replaced: to some RAV4 in decent picking without 2 million you will also not be risen, and Flying Spur in which it is more genuine leather on an upholstery of one door, than in all inside of any new crossover costs … as much.
For this purpose, who loves machines eyes and ears, Continental Flying Spur – simply honey cake: the six-liter W12 engine, 560 horse powers, the fixed four-wheel drive, dispersal to one hundred for 5 with small seconds, the maximum speed exceeding 300 km/h and all this is in an interior from expensive skin of thin manufacture and a natural wooden interline interval.
And as it is not selfish two-door Continental GT, nobody will call this machine too impractical: the lordly comfort on a forward row has something in common with an imperial scope on back which isn’t deprived of either separate climate, or wooden finishing. In the most magnificent versions the back sofa was separate, with a wide central tunnel between chairs.
Pragmatists in case of a view of this car will think of another. The lever of the check point issues in this luxury sedan from British to Kr the relative of the German prosperous burghers – Audi A8 and even …
Volkswagen Phaeton with which Bentley is constructed on one platform. Moreover, even that six-liter W12 under a cowl – too German, also occurred it, in addition to notorious A8 and Phaeton, also on the Volkswagen Toureg crossover in the Sport version. Configuration of cylinders here, by the way, “cunning”: actually it two Volkswagen VR6 with midget disorder of the cylinders covered with general GBTs.
Such acceptance allowed to make the motor more compact without loss of key characteristics. But, of course, I didn’t make it simpler – if you want to purchase Continental Flying Spur not to drive few months on a residual resource, and then, having delivered a tick in the list of desires, to sell the car, it is necessary to be ready to the fact that investments in repair and servicing at some point will exceed the cost of the car.
