Flying Spur
After World War II, faster and better roads on continental Europe enabled cruising at high speeds for long periods. Bentley Motors responded with the Continental - a series of rare, high performance, and expensive motorcars to discerning owners from 1952 to 1965.

This car is one of the 49 left-hand drive examples built in the S2 series 388 vehicles from 1959-62. The S2 series introduced the new 6.2-liter V8. All Continentals were 'coach built' lightweights by H.J. Mulliner & Co. using aluminum panels over a frame of extruded light alloy, and weight was the key to Continentals performance. When customers demanded more rear headroom and easier access than the 2-door coupe, Mulliner designed the four-door 'Flying Spur', keeping all the performance in an elegant and more practical continental touring car. The combination of high performance, higher gearing, light weight and wind tunnel proven aerodynamics, enabled the Continental to achieve speeds well in excess of 100 mph, qualifying it as the fastest genuine 4-seater in the world at the time and also the most expensive.
