    Spying: Bentley Continental Flying Spur Doing Its Best Impression Of A Mercedes S-Class

    Its not often we get spy shots of a new or refreshed Bentley, but today is different. Bentley appears to be working on the next on the Continental Flying Spur and some spy photos caught it during some testing.

    If you can look past the Mercedes-Benz S-Class veil that Bentley has put on this mule, you can make out a new set of headlights sitting between a new upright grille. Also, the door handles on this mule sit lower than the current Flying Spur. Expect new profile lines and a reworked rear-end with new taillights to appear.

    Under the hood, expect some tweaks and changes to the 6.0L twin-turbo W12. Also, the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 introduced into the Continental GT and GTC could make its way into the Flying Spur.

    I like what I am reading and find it funny at how well they did an S class body cover, but you can clearly see the work going on to take it to the next logical evolution. Should be cool to see what they end up with.

    If money was not an issue, I think it would be fun to have one of these flying spurs in a Ruby Red color or a Metallic black with Black Chrome rims.
