Bentley has released another teaser video for its redesigned Flying Spur, and the next generation car is looking less like a grown up Continental GT and more like a junior Mulsanne. A viewing of the first teaser vid revealed a more upright grille, a three-spoke steering wheel, horizontal taillights and quarter panels with angles and curves certifiably lifted from the Mulsanne. After this second video, we can add lower door panels with a more aggressive shape, horizontal vents in the fenders and a rear end with the shape of proper haunches.

The English motorcar maker promises us we'll see more on February 20, when "performance and luxury unite." We'll be there in person when the "Camry for rich people" is revealed at the Geneva Motor Show next month. You'll find the videographic appetizer below.

      Can someone please explain this "Camry for rich people" line? I've seen it before on Autoblog. Is it something someone once said about Bentleys? Is it just Autoblog's overarching opinion of Bentleys? In any case it's definitely a slight and I'm wondering why it's being said and where it comes from. Somebody, anybody

        Because the Continental GT(and Flying Spur) sell really well and are quite common in wealthy areas.

          You are quite right. Where I live in southern florida, these things are a dime a dozen. Not saying these things arent great cars and I'd love to have the money someday to be able to purchase one (but I wouldnt), but these things are really common.

          What HaterSlayer and Matt said. The things are everywhere in affluent areas.

        It's not necessarily intended to be denigrating (well, maybe a little depending on the person). They're extremely common in affluent areas. I live in Orange County CA and I stopped noticing Continentals a looooooong time ago-- hence, Camry for rich people.

        I've never heard the term but I'll hazard a guess. I guess it's saying that the Flying Spur is to rich people what a Camry is to the average working-class person. That is, It's a basic "safe" sedan option. Middle Class person wants a family car, a Camry is probably always on the list because it's always a good-looking, reliable car, if a bit common and perhaps boring. Perhaps they're saying the Flying Spur fills the same role for rich people.

      Hopefully, in the flesh it won\'t look so much like a Chrysler 300 !- and let\'s ditch the Yokohama tires and the W 12

      That looks like the side of a Taurus.

      I'm just glad they finally fixed that hideous c-pillar! I'm definitely not in the market for such a vehicle, but the rear third of the roof of the outgoing car was reason enough NOT to own one. Apparently Bentley agreed, haha!

      Well thank goodness it will have fender vents. Wouldn\'t want Bentley to miss out on that attractive and functional trend..

      I am super excited for this. The Flyer Spur is one of my fav cars.

      This is not a brand new car. It is a new body & uprated interior riding on the same old chassis and mechanicals. It looks a lot better than the old model though. I am guessing they'll make it resemble a smaller Mulsanne, then put the price up accordingly. I am looking forward to when they build a truly new GT and FS. They'll be a lot lighter and well packaged. Rumour has it that when the 2 new models are eventually released they'll go upmarket and cost more, and a new 'Sporting Baby Bentley V8' will be introduced to take on the likes of Aston & Maserati.
