AutoHunter Spotlight: 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur.

When it was new, Bentley marketed the Flying Spur with the tagline “Poise. Performance. Passion.” The car was referred to as a “seductively beautiful four-door,” and it would set you back $164,990 in 2006. This 63,000-mile example in Barnato Green still yields all the same elegance 18 years later. The car is being offered by a private seller, and the auction will end on Tuesday.

The equipment list of this car is impressive: It boasts a 552-horsepower twin-turbocharged W12 motor, all-wheel drive, 19-inch wheels, a 12-speaker audio system, quad-zone automatic climate control, a navigation system, and an adjustable air suspension. The original retail price mentioned above inflates to a staggering $255,613 today. Can you imagine driving a quarter-million-dollar vehicle? This auction could be your chance to acquire it at a deep discount.

The Continental Flying Spur rode on the Volkswagen Group D1 platform and was first shown to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2005. The spec sheet was impressive on many levels; of course, the amenities were generous, but the car could also move with authority. Power came from a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a Torsen permanent all-wheel drive system. Despite its size, the car was said to achieve 60 miles per hour in fewer than five seconds.

The odometer reads 63,065 miles, and everything on the CARFAX report checks out. In fact, the CARFAX chronology is one of the biggest selling points of this car. It contains 26 service records, the majority of which were from Braman Motorcars of Palm Beach. Braman prides itself in being a premier exotic-focused dealership for the area, it is nice to know that this Flying Spur has been serviced by people who are experts in the model. For added peace of mind, recent work has included service to the struts, alignment, brakes, and cabin air filter all within the last few years.

Are you ready to take your commute to the next level in European executive style? This Silver Spur will look right at home in your driveway. It makes a statement of poise, performance, and passion – just as Bentley intended it to.
