After offering updates for the Continental GT and the Continental GTC, Bentley has switched focus over to the Continental Flying Spur to provide it with some similar upgrades.

While most people will consider this a facelift, Bentley says the changes provided to the Flying Spur will make it a new model - just like the Continental GT. We have to admit, the changes are significant enough to justify the title. They include more upright bumpers with a new shape, new headlights with LED lights, and redesigned side mirrors. The chrome stripe at the bottom of the car has been removed and the door handles have been moved further down on the door. The Bentley has also received a slightly different roof line, new rear doors, a new bumper, and new taillights to match the headlights.

The only place left untouched on the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is its already superb 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine rated at 575 HP and 516 lb/ft of torque.

Expect to see the new Continental Flying Spur launched by the end of 2012.

So what are the tracks did Bentley have their test drives? I guess this one has a good opportunity in the US market if ever Toyota refuses to the Scion convertible.

Its good that they have started testing the Flying Spur. I’m good with the current details of it.

I think the reason why they have accompanied it by video is to make people anxious about this model. Good strategy though.

Yeah, Bentley needs to provide videos showing the Bentley zooming on the track. And much better if Playboy drives that Flying Spur.

Those shots need to be accompanied by videos.

The shots are intriguing. I’m getting excited on its release. When will it be?

Wow, it seems that the Bentley stirs something new to offer us. I wonder what will be its ultimate figures.

Upon a closer look at the teaser, the Flying Spur appears to bear some design similarities to the standard Continental, particularly the distinguishable hood lines, the aggressive fascia, and the headlamp configuration. And based on the images, it has a sleeker look.
