The Bentley Continental Flying Spur was always hampered by one thing – no, I'm not talking about VW Phaeton’s platform, because that was excellent and gave the driver huge confidence. The thing that hampered the car was the fact it was called Continental, meaning it shared a lot in common with its (cheaper) two-door sibling the Continental GT – it was a version of that model with two extra doors. Now, though, the new model has gained a more distinct body and a new name - the Flying Spur full stop. MotorTrend magazine flew all the way to China to find out what the new Flying Spur is all about. Enjoy.
