Bentley Continental Flying Star and Continental GTZ Zagato!
During the Zoute Grand Prix I have recorded two of the most expensive
Continentals ever made: Bentley Continental editions: the Continental
Flying Star and a Bentley Continental GTZ!
The Flying Star is the most exclusive 'estate' car in the world. The
Bentley Continental Flying Star is a stunning two-door shooting brake that
mixes incredible looks with an equally jaw-dropping price tag of more then
Specs: 6.0L W12 producing 610HP and 750Nm and 0-60mph in 4.8seconds and a
topspeed of 322km/h.
The super-exclusive Bentley Continental GTZ Zagato which was unveiled in
2009 at the Geneva Auto Show. The famous Italian tuning company Zagato
modified the bodywork of the 600HP twin-turbo W12 Continental GT Speed with a special
two-tone body finish and at the same time providing a customized treatment
of luxurious leather to the interior. In order to have one, customers first
had to buy the €250,000 Continental GT Speed and then pay an additional
€550,000 for the Zagato styling. All togehter, to own a GTZ it cost about
€800,000 ($1.1 million).

all info about classic Volvos! If you need any parts manuals, hints and
tips or service manuals you can view them at Volvotips.com. We're still
developing the website so stay tuned for extra info about your favorite
This video (made by Volvo) shows how the new customizable Active TFT
crystal display in the instrument cluster of the new 2012 Volvo V40 works.
The dash and interior of the new Volvo V40 are really nice and points out
the "Design around you"-concept perfectly. It's very easy to customize the
instrument cluster to the color you want and it's a very cool feature in my
opinion. The 3 standard modes (or better said: themes) are: Elegance
(brownish), Eco (blue/green) and Performance (red). Note: the customizable
Active TFT display is an option for a Volvo V40 and doesn't become as a
standard so you'll have to buy it as an accessory. On the more luxurious
models it's already installed. The new Volvo V40 is for sale at the local
dealer since August 2012 and has already Modelyear 2013.

Slightly modified Bentley Continental GT - Lovely Sound! - Full HD 1080p
I spotted this CGT twice this week, but the first time it was driving, and
I wasn't able to make great shots, so I only put one shot of that day in
it, when the Bentley stops in front of a traffic light, but today I spotted
it again! It sounds pretty good! I don't think it has stock Exhaust, and the spoiler isn't stock as well I
believe! It looks great and in real life it sounds a lot better!
The Bentley Continental Flying Star
I film a Bentley Continental Flying Star at the Singapore Lamborghini
dealer at Tebans Gardens Crescent.
According to www.sgcarmart.com,
For the first time outside of Europe, Touring Superleggera displayed the
Bentley Continental Flying Star, the first high performance shooting brake
of this century. Only 19 units of this limited edition supercar will be
built and it is designed and body manufactured under the supervision of
Bentley Motors for engineering and quality, entitling the Flying Star to
Bentley warranty and aftersales service.
Italian style and refinement, combined with British technological
perfection, makes the Flying Star a true collector's item, yet perfectly
functional for everyday use.
The Flying Star was built based on the Bentley GTC convertible which
features a very rigid platform. The project required the modification of a
number of external dimensions, starting from the car's A-pillar backwards,
till the extended roof line, a wider section including the doors, new
aluminium door skins and a new aluminium, electrically operated tailgate.
It also includes a completely new rear compartment with two foldable rear
seats that fold completely to create a flat loading surface that is more
than two metres long with a 1,200 litres capacity - a first in this class
The side view of the Flying Star features a low roof, prominent quarter
panel shoulders and wide wheel arches, suggesting perfectly mastered
energy. Viewed from the rear, the new tailgate dives between the wide rear
wings and the oval rear light chrome bezels are a reference to Bentley's
fastback cars back in the 1950s.
Under the Flying Star is the chassis inherited from the Continental GTC.
The 6.0-litre W12 engine provides for a staggering 610bhp and a maximum
torque of 750Nm. This allows the Flying Star to fly into a century sprint
in a mere 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 322km/h.
Each unit of the Flying Star will be unique. Customers will be actively
involved in the early stage to choose the specifications of their own
collector's item, ranging from two-tone, glossy and matt painting to
bespoke cabinetry and trim plus a wide choice of dedicated options.
Touring Superleggera has also appointed EuroSports Auto Pte Ltd as the
exclusive dealer in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. Established
in 1926 and recognised as one of the top Italian car designers and body
manufacturers worldwide, Touring specialises in combining refined Italian
styling with state-of-the-art engineering and craftsmanship to body
manufacture one-offs or very limited edition supercars.
The car is still there right now, so check it out! With only 19 of these,
it is truly a rare sight to behold.
Bentley Continental GT Diamond Series--D&M Motorsports Video Walk Around Review 2012 Chris Moran
Bentley Continental GT Diamond Series Walk Around with Chris Moran.
Presented by D&M Motorsports.
Here is a Bentley that weighs in at Porsche money, that stakes a claim as
the most technologically advanced car on sale, and which at the time of
launch, was billed as the world's fastest four-door coupe. Powered by a
6.0-litre twin turbocharged W12 engine
good for 555bhp, with four wheel drive and a paddle operated gearbox, the
Continental GT was born in a virtual world. Every nut, bolt and washer was
designed in concert with the Data Control Model - the computer simulation
that would then design the tooling to physically build the car.
Certain Bentley trademarks endure -- the bullseye chromed ventilation
outlets and the organ stop controls, but don't get the impression that this
interior is a quaint retro pastiche. A touch screen LCD display on the
centre console controls the air conditioning, satellite navigation,
computer information and entertainment systems, whilst many of the minor
controls can be operated without removing hands from the steering wheel.
It's this blend of old and new that's particularly fascinating.
Craftsmanship techniques have been similarly updated. For instance, wood
paneling can be dramatically curved in a way that was once impossible. By
the same token, while the leather is still applied to the car with the same
hand crafted care, it's cut from hides using a digitized process that
reduces waste and optimizes efficiency.
400 Continental GT Diamond Series cars were produced featuring exclusive
20" 12-spoke forged alloy wheels. The Continental GT was already fitted
with the largest brakes on any production car but the ones on the Diamond
Series are bigger. The black 8-piston callipers that peep purposefully from
between the wheel spokes clamp down on 420mm carbon-silicon carbide
cross-drilled discs at the front and 356mm versions of the same at the
rear. Inside, the Continental GT Diamond Series is based on the Mulliner
Driving Specification package that was developed by Bentley's bespoke
coachbuilding division to give an added sporting dimension to the standard
car. Quilted leather seats and door casings feature along with drilled
alloy pedals and a sports gear lever in chrome and leather. The ubiquitous
Bentley wood finishes are either dark stained walnut or piano black wood
for a more contemporary feel.
The Bentley CONTINENTAL GT DIAMOND SERIES History
This bold take on what a modern Bentley coupe should represent was first
unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September 2002. Drawing almost
universal acclaim, few were prepared for quite what a technological
tour-de-force this model represented. Advance orders poured in and when the
cars first appeared in dealerships in March 2003 business was, to say the
least, brisk. Beloved by Premiership footballers and raffish city boys
alike, the Conti GT spawned a special edition 'Diamond Series' and, in
summer 2006, a convertible GTC model.
The 600bhp Speed model arrived in mid 2007 billed as the first 200mph
Bentley. At the same time the standard GT models received a number of
revisions many lifted from the Speed model itself. Weight saving measures
knocked 35kg from the car's kerb weight while low friction dampers Boosted ride comfort and the steering was
tweaked to give greater feel. A new Exhaust system helped deliver a 3.5% reduction
in emissions and economy.
Bentley CONTINENTAL GT DIAMOND SERIES Driving Experience
Power is transmitted to the road via a rear-biased four-wheel drive set up
which gives the Continental GT a handy advantage when the going gets
slippery. The link between the driven wheels and the engine comes courtesy
of a six-speed automatic transmission built for Bentley by ZF. This can be
marshalled via paddles behind the steering wheel should you wish, or else
it can be driven like a conventional automatic. This was a surprisingly
controversial feature, with some engineers arguing that a car with this
much torque didn't need a six-speed gearbox. Yes, you could lock the
Continental GT into third gear and surf languidly along for much of the
time, but the enthusiast owner profile eventually dictated the six ratios.
Another first for Bentley was the attention to aerodynamics. A car that can
accelerate to 60mph in less than five seconds and on to the far side of
190mph requires sufficient aerodynamics that its owner can be assured of it
remaining dirty side down. The Continental GT benefits from the expertise
of the best aerodynamicists the Volkswagen Group had. The venturi tunnel
under the rear of the car and the cooling ducts in the engine bay all
attest to their labours.

Bentley Continental Flying Spur--Chicago Cars Direct
Detailed walkaround and test drive of a 2006 Bentley Flying Spur with Chris
at Chicago Cars Direct.
For roughly 40 nights a year, a small patch of blacktop in Downtown Los
Angeles becomes the most sought after real estate in Southern California.
It's a parking lot across the street from the Staples Center, home of the
L.A. Lakers NBA team, and unless you're a season ticket holder or Kobe
Bryant's mother you're not getting in. Or so we thought.
We drive by to get a look before the game. There's a half million dollars'
worth of cars in the front row alone, and a stone-faced attendant at the
gate. Under normal circumstances we would have kept right on going, but
we're driving a 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur sedan so we try our
luck and turn in.
The attendant takes one look at the car, smiles and waves us through the
gate like he was expecting us. We try not to look surprised when he directs
us into a space between a Ferrari F430 and an Aston Martin DB9. Another
security guard standing watch assures us the Spur will be safe. Neither one
asks to see our tickets.
Just a few years ago this glimpse into how the other half lives would have
never happened. Back then, Bentleys looked old and were driven by people
who looked even older. Other than the Bentley name, the cars didn't have
much going for them.
The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is a different story. It looks modern
and powerful and has the performance to match. Its $165,000 base price
makes it less expensive than the older Arnage flagship, but it's the Flying
Spur that gets people's attention.
Bentley owes all of its newfound popularity to Volkswagen. The General
Motors of Germany took over Bentley in 1999, giving the British marque
access to a new engines, chassis, and suspensions. Not to mention plenty of
And Bentley wasn't shy about using its new resources. According to its
window sticker, 55 percent of the Flying Spur's parts come from Germany,
many of them borrowed from Volkswagen's own Phaeton luxury sedan.
At over 208 inches, the Flying Spur is 5 inches longer than the Phaeton and
3 inches longer than the 2007 Mercedes-Benz S550. The Bentley shares the
same height and width as the new S-Class, but the Mercedes rides on a
Compared to Bentley's Continental GT coupe, the Flying Spur has identical
styling up front. Other than the obvious addition of its rear doors, the
Flying Spur differs from the coupe mostly through its softer, straighter
lines down the sides and in back. It's not as instantly recognizable as the
GT, but it looks right for a sedan in this class.
Determining which class isn't easy. Top-of-the-line Audi and BMW sedans
barely crack $125,000 and Maserati's Quattroporte doesn't even top
$100,000. Ultraluxury models like the Maybach 57 and Rolls-Royce Phantom
cost more than twice as much. The Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG will be similar in
price and performance when it goes on sale this summer, but until then the
Flying Spur sits somewhere in the middle when it comes to high-dollar
Don't call it a Volkswagen
The extra $65 grand the Flying Spur commands over the top-of-the-line
Phaeton gets you more than a reskinned Volkswagen. Both cars use
Volkswagen's 6.0-liter W12 engine, but the Bentley version has twin turbochargers, specially developed pistons and
reworked cylinder heads.
The result is 552 horsepower at 6,100 rpm
compared to the Phaeton's 444 horses. Bentley's engineers also tuned the
Flying Spur's engine to deliver its 479 pound-feet of torque at just 1,600
rpm. Continuously variable valve timing helps smooth out the power delivery
and earn the engine Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV) certification.
All that low-end torque makes the Flying Spur perform like it weighs only 2
tons instead of nearly 3. Our test car took just 4.8 seconds to reach 60
mph from a stop and 13.1 seconds to cover the quarter-mile. The Ferrari we
parked next to is only two-tenths of a second quicker to 60.
Bentley's kind of power
The Flying Spur doesn't jump off the line, though. The throttle reacts
softly, as if the engineers were worried that 552 hp might be too much to
handle all at once. It could be if the Spur was as ferocious off the line
as most other 500-plus-hp cars, but it's not.
Permanent all-wheel drive is one reason. You could mat the pedal in a
downpour and still not slip a tire. Its six-speed automatic transmission
has a short 1st-gear ratio and even that's not enough to make the Spur feel
anything but perfectly civilized under full acceleration.
There are steering-wheel paddle shifters if you're up to changing gears
yourself. They're not easy to reach, not quick to shift and they don't
match engine speed when you downshift. In other words, they're useless for
anything but showing off.
