Bentley Flying Spur’s production milestone

Bentley Motors has handcrafted the 40,000th example of the Flying Spur – the “most successful luxury sports sedan in the world”.

Now in its all-new third generation, it was originally launched in 2005 as the Continental Flying Spur and has evolved to further distinguish itself from the Continental GT.

Designed, engineered, developed and manufactured at Bentley’s home in Crewe, north-west England, each one of the 40,000 cars made has spent more than 100 hours on a dedicated production line where a 250-strong team meticulously assemble every Flying Spur by hand.

Once finished and subjected to hundreds of quality checks, the car is shipped to its discerning owner in one of the 68 different countries Bentley operates.

Approximately 50% have been commissioned by customers in Bentley’s two biggest markets, split evenly between the China and Americas regions.
