2014 Bentley Flying Spur

Redefining Super Luxury On A Shrinking Planet Anyone on Earth with access to the Internet, a television or radio for the last 20 years knows that China is no longer the poor stronghold for strict Communist ideals that it was for much of the 20th Century. (Well, at least not in some places.) Traveling to China twice in less than a month – first to Shanghai for a very international auto show and now to Beijing to drive and review the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur – I've learned that there's no lack of personal wealth, at least in two of the world's largest cities.

    Geneva: The Bentley Flying Spur V8 shows even a basic Bentley is a nice place to be

    While it is hard to call any Bentley entry-level, the Flying Spur V8 that's debuting at the Geneva Motor Show is technically the lowest rung among Bentley's four-doors. However, if our experience with the Continental GT V8 is anything to go by – the Spur and the Conti still share a platform, despite the former dropping "Continental" from its ...

    Official: Bentley bringing Flying Spur V8, upgraded Continental GT Speed to Geneva

    Until the new Falcon sport-ute comes along, Bentley is still a brand that revolves around two model lines: the Mulsanne, which is available essentially in one form, and the Continental family, which is available in many.

    Geneva: 2014 Bentley Flying Spur makes its Swiss debut

    Ever since the two-door Bentley Continental GT debuted in 2010, we've wondered how the coupe's new design and technology would carry over to the four-door Flying Spur model. We received official details and images a couple of weeks ago, but we've now had the chance to see the Spur in person here on the eve of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It's a handsome ...

    Video: Bentley teases new Flying Spur before Geneva debut

    Last time we saw the 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur out testing, our only questions about the new car regarded its rear-end styling, and when the car would debut. Well now we know for certain that the car will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, and we're also getting a better idea of what the car will look like thanks to Bentley releasing a brief ...

    Continentals for the Mainland: Special edition Bentleys previewed for Beijing show

    It's been barely eight years since Bentley entered the Chinese market, and they haven't looked back. Since arriving on the scene in 2002, Bentley's sales have grown ten-fold, to the point that today China is the company's third largest market.
