Bentley Continental Flying Star revealed

Updated: 


Bentley has released the first teaser pic of the new, ultra-exclusive Continental Flying Star which will be officially unveiled at next month's Geneva show.

Based on the Continental GTC, the new Flying Spur was designed and built by Italian coach builder, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Just 20 examples of the car will eventually be made.

Bentley is unlikely to have any trouble shifting them. The shooting-brake body is likely to cause quite a stir, especially as it isn't just for show; the two rear seats can be folded flat to reveal over two metres of shotgun-swallowing load space.

Prices will depend on just how bespoke you want your Flying Star to be, but expect it to have a hefty premium over the £156,800 Continental GTC Speed.
