Sharing its platform with the Continental GT, the second generation Bentley Flying Spur made its debut at the Geneva Show in March 2013. The 6.0-litre W12 engine now produced some 625bhp and an astonishing 800Nm of torque fed through an 8-speed automatic gearbox with Quickshift, Block Shifting and a wheel-mounted paddle shift. This all contributed towards a top speed in excess of 200mph for the first time in the model's history. A more driver-focused Mulliner version was also offered and the car received praise for its combination of exceptional handling for its size, combined with amazing performance and outstanding ride quality.
This car was sold new in July 2014 at a cost of £173,200 to its first owner who owned the car until early in 2019 and covered just 7,100 miles from new. The service history indicates that it has been serviced every year by a Bentley main agent, including 2019, when it was also fitted with four new tyres.
Finished in Silverlake Blue with Linen Hide, it is built to full Mulliner Drivers specification and also includes further factory options of 21” five-spoke polished wheels, comfort spec, steering column gear selection, storage case to centre console, electric glass tilt and slide sunroof, electrically adjustable rear seats with massage, single fine-line stripe in beige, contrast stitching to the over-mats and interior leather upholstery, deep pile over-mats front and rear, dual-tone three-spoke hide trimmed steering wheel, first aid kit and warning triangle, veneered picnic tables in the rear with vanity mirrors, Bentley battery charger, digital TV tuner, Mulliner rear-seat entertainment, rear view camera, remote control garage opener and a space-saving wheel.
Purchased by Silverstone Auctions Managing Director because of its outstanding condition and mileage early in 2019, the car has today covered just 8,800 miles in total (atoc). Having been kept indoors from new, it is naturally in outstanding order throughout and is offered at a very competitive guide price for a 'best of breed' example. Simply delightful and ready to use and enjoy.
