Series 51 represents Bentley design at its most vibrant. It allows customers of both Continental Flying Spur and Flying Spur Speed to order 'off the peg' from an innovative and exclusive range of recommended combinations created by Bentley's colour and trim designers at the company's headquarters in Crewe, England, as Dirk van Braeckel, Bentley's director of design comments: "The Series 51 design concept is inspired by the spirit of the inaugural Bentley styling department in Crewe established by the gifted John Blatchley, who shaped the original and iconic 1950s Bentley Continentals. Today, it provides for a virtually bespoke ordering service due to the thousands of configurations available through Bentley's expansive colour and trim catalogue." First offered on the Continental GT and GTC in 2009, Bentley's colour and trim team has now created no fewer than14 unique Series 51 designs for the Continental Flying Spur and Flying Spur Speed, enabling customers to tailor their cars to their individual tastes as Melinda June-Jenkins, manager of colour and trim, explains:

2008 Spyker C8 Aileron (500th Video)
The all-new Spyker C8 Aileron marks the next step in Spyker Cars' evolution. Initially unveiled at the 2009 Salon International de l'Automobile in Geneva, the new Spyker C8 Aileron coupe took pride of place at the 2010 Geneva show just as it enters production in a new facility in Coventry, UK. Inspired by the company's aviation heritage, Spyker's second-generation sports car features cues from second-generation aircraft propulsion, highlighting the turbine blade, rather than the propeller which adorned many elements of Spyker's first generation cars. With sleek aerodynamics, a long GT wheelbase, luxurious and spacious cabin and world-class ZF six-speed automatic transmission, the new C8 Aileron broadens the appeal of the Spyker brand while maintaining the marque's exclusivity. The Spyker C8 Aileron is available in 16 standard colours, but customers may choose any colour they wish as an option, as well as the Spyker Squadron GT2 racing colour scheme. The standard colours have been developed by Sikkens Autolakken Nederland and AkzoNobel Car Refinishes. Spyker selected these companies because of their high quality standards and their flexibility to meet the special requirements of owners wishing to give their Spyker a unique appearance. Some of the standard colours are exclusive to the C8 Aileron. V8 powertrain and automatic drivetrain The Spyker C8 Aileron's performance is visceral, vibrant and alive. Power comes from a naturally aspirated Audi 4.2-litre V8 petrol engine. This powerunit features a 90 degree angle block, 40 valves (5 valves-per-cylinder, 3 intake and 2 Exhaust), and variable valve timing. Highly responsive, the V8 generates 400 ps at 6,800 rpm and an immense wave of torque (480 Nm at just 3,500 rpm), to ensure thrilling drivability. Strong torque, high power, sleek aerodynamics, modest car weight and an excellent power-to-weight ratio all result in sensational acceleration: 0-to-100 kph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 300 kph. As standard, the engine is fitted with a long-life stainless steel Exhaust system tuned to put the driver 'truly in touch with their senses' - according the company CEO Victor Muller. Also standard in Europe is an Exhaust system with 'Whisper' mode (optional outside Europe). This system uses noise-dampening reed valves to create a quieter drive below 3,500 rpm. The valves naturally open as engine speed rises above this figure, and can be opened electronically below this speed by the driver if desired. Marking a 'first' for Spyker, the C8 Aileron's engine is mated to an automatic transmission that provides seamless, yet instant, progression through the gears. The highly regarded six-speed ZF gearbox features a regular torque converter and offers drivers a choice of fully automatic or clutch-less sequential manual gear shifting using the standard paddle shifts behind the steering wheel. The transmission selection operation retains Spyker's trademark exposed gear change mechanism that provides a sense of occasion and proves that aesthetics and function go hand-in-hand.
