Bentley announces two special edition Continental Flying Spur for the Middle East
Join the leagues of automakers that are busy producing special edition cars for targeted markets is Bentley, who has created two new special editions for the Middle East market. The new wheels aimed at the Middle East market are special edition Continentals dubbed the Continental Flying Spur Arabia and the Continental Flying Spur Speed Arabia respectively. Limited to just 50 examples (combined), these beauties are sure to be usurped fast by the swanky-car-loving community of the Middle East. The Flying Spur Arabia boasts of the standard 6.0 liter twin turbo W12 engine with 552 bhp (412kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque while the Flying spur Speed Arabia gets that engine tuned upwards to 600 bhp (449 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm), allowing it to speed from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and adding 10 km/h to the top speed, now at 322 km/h (200 mph).
The cars will boast of an ‘Arabia’ motif that will be flaunted on the front fender badge as well as a tread plate and ashtray lid. If the motif doesn’t help the cars stand apart, the wheels should definitely succeed in doing that. The Flying Spur Arabia comes with 14-spoke diamond alloy wheels, while the Flying Spur Speed Arabia boasts of 10-spoke 20-inch rims in shining silver. The interior of these cars too has been given a special touch with ventilated seats that can cool or warm passengers, veneered picnic tables inside the cabin. The chrome fuel cap with the ‘B’ emblem of Bentley adds the perfect finishing touches to these beauties on wheels.
These special edition cars will ensure that Bentley becomes a favorite with the Middle East crowd.
