It looks as if Bentley is working on a new Continental Flying Spur. Spy photographers recently spotted this machine out for a little testing. Look through the veil of Mercedes-Benz S-Class camouflage, and you can spot a new set of a headlamp arrays paired with an upright grille and more aggressive front fascia. New door handles sit lower on the body than before and designers have also rolled in reworked side mirrors. Otherwise, the design looks awfully familiar, though Bentley has been sure to underscore the next Flying Spur will be an all-new generation instead of a simple facelift. As before, we expect the Flying Spur to look like a four-door version of the Continental GT coupe, which got a fresh look and updates for 2012.

Bentley has kept its lips sealed on what sort of drivetrain advancements we can expect to see, though we wouldn't be surprised if the model bowed with the same twin-turbocharged V8 as the Conti GT complete with 500 horsepower on hand. If that's the case, buyers can expect to find an eight-speed automatic transmission handling shifting detail as well. The W12 will doubtlessly also continue, though, just as it has with the coupe.

      So they made it look like a Maybach in order to disguise it? Genius!

      Looks like a poor Chinese copy of a Chrysler 300. Which is a poor American copy of a Bentley

        Thats what they want us to believe what it is. The front and rear lamps are just printed pictures of the S-casses lamps ;)

      There is something wrong with this picture. Looks like a bad Chinese immitation and has all the elements of the new MB S-class albeit, disjointed.

      why not replace the W12 with V8 and save some MPG. driving a car with 10-17 miles per gallon will simple take away the joy of daily crising.

      It's clearly an all new design with that Mulsanne-inspired roofline. Yay! The current one, derived from the GT, never really looked "Right" to me. This one looks designed as a sedan from the start.
