It's been months since we've heard anything about the next-gen Bentley Continental Flying Spur. We know the four-door variant of the Bentley Continental GT is coming sometime soon, but all we've seen so far is one batch of spy shots of a car that doesn't stray too far from the current model. This new batch of photos shows another familiar car lapping the Nürburgring.
Bentley has started construction on what it says will be the U.K.'s largest solar-powered car port at its factory headquarters in Crewe, England. When completed, the array will have a capacity of 2.7 megawatts, enough to cover 24 percent of the company's energy requirements on the site.

The Bentley Bentayga will get a Porsche-sourced 4.0-liter gasoline V8 next year, the PHEV Bentayga to follow.

It comes with a gun case and storage system.
We all saw this coming, but we're still glad to see it.
