Touring Superleggera Flying Star – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Porsche 918 Spyder might've been our pick of the Geneva Motor Show, but the consensus on which vehicle we'd drive home was unanimous: The Bentley Continental-based Flying Star.

As many of you have pointed out, we've got a undying love of all things shooting brake, so the Flying Star lit up all the right nerve endings. And apparently, we aren't alone.

Car and Driver
spoke with Stuart McCullough during the launch of the Mulsanne and when asked about the possibility of a Bentley-built hatch, the Volkswagen board member said, "We have an idea in the back of our minds that we may yet bring to market."

That's far from a confirmation and it's doubtful that a Continental-derived shooting brake is coming, particularly when you consider that the GT is due for a refresh. However, something based on the Mulsanne's underpinnings could replace the aging Continental, and Bentley is sure to be considering other body styles when that model arrives within the next few years.
