2010 Bentley Continental Flying SpurSpeed China

On one side you have the visually influenced Bentley and, on the other, you have the mechanically influenced Bentley. The second special edition unveiled today by Bentley at 2010 Auto China Motor Show, Beijing is the Continental Flying SpurSpeed China. This special edition comes with a range of engineering upgrades developed for the Chinese market.

It gets a bespoke ’comfort’ suspension which emphasizes the car’s superior ride quality for both driver and passengers, whilst ensuring the class-leading performance of the W12 6-liter engine is in no way diminished. The car is capable of achieving a potential top speed of 200mph and a 0-60mph sprint time of just 4.5 seconds.

The Continental Flying SpurSpeed China is distinguished by sporty 20-inch multi-spoke Speed wheels, a range of design features that accentuate its special edition status, ’Speed China’ treadplates and wing badges and a special display case for the ignition key.

It probably would have been a good idea just to combine the Flying SpurSpeed China’s engineering upgrades with the Bentley Continental GT Design Series China ’s bold color choices to make one helluva sedan or coupe.

Bentley is also launching the Continental Flying SpurSpeed China which retains all the potent performance of the company’s Continental Flying Spur Speed, the world’s fastest luxury four-door saloon, but with a range of engineering upgrades developed for the Chinese market.

A bespoke ‘comfort’ suspension setting has been developed for the Speed China which emphasises the car’s superior ride quality for both driver and passengers, whilst ensuring the class-leading performance of the W12 6-litre engine is in no way diminished. The car is capable of achieving a potential top speed of 200mph/322km/h and a 0-60mph sprint time of just 4.5 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds).

The Flying Spur Speed’s distinctive, sporty 20-inch multi-spoke Speed wheels are retained to emphasise the car’s athletic character but for the Speed China, this performance is balanced with greater refinement through the re-tuning of the exhaust to produce a quieter note.

The Speed China’s refinement and handling upgrades are also accompanied by a range of design features that accentuate its special edition status. ‘Speed China’ treadplates and wing badges (with a matching badge visible on the centre console) have been created for this car and Bentley’s famous ‘B’ emblem has been affixed to both ‘C’ pillars.

Bentley’s ability to add extra, well-executed, touches of luxury can be found in the custom leather cushions for rear passengers which are embroidered with Bentley wings. Each car will also come with a special display case for the ignition key. Geoff Dowding, Regional Director, Asia and Middle East, comments:

Ha ha... Looks like suzet001 tell it all. Vehicles that are being sold here are often exaggerated with graphics, accessories and too many bling-blings. And this is what I like about this Bentley, it is simple yet classy.

No doubt we can expect more of these special editions to come from Bentley and other
brands both in the Middle East and China, as both markets become increasingly important to ultra
high-end automakers.
Unlike here in the U.S, cars design here has excessive options & accessories, way-oversized wheels, bling bling & chrome..which are not classy taste at all. Just excessive & ugly.

So the china is the new middle east today? because most of the super and exotic cars are making a china edition.

This car is luxury and has a wonderful and perfectly structure.

Wow so many special editions for the Chinese these days, so it is like a fashion now

it’s not low key at all...just normal. not like it here in the U.S.: excessive options & accessories, way-oversized wheels, bling bling & chrome...which are not classy taste at all. just excessive & ugly.

Well that’s the problem with bentley they import it to china, with that china had a chance to study can copy the car.
