Besides the Bentley Continental GT Design Series China, the British manufacturer will also bring the Continental Flying Spur Speed China at the same 2010 Auto China Motor Show.
The new edition developed especially for the Chinese market features a bespoke comfort suspension setting, which helps the car to deliver a superior ride quality for both driver and passengers.
The Continental Flying Spur Speed is known as the world's fastest luxury four-door saloon and it appears that this edition makes no exception as it comes with
the same W12 6-litre engine capable to push the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds), while the top speed achieved is 200mph/322km/h. The new car has also a re-tuned exhaust in order to produce a quieter note.
The Speed China is accompanied by a range of design features that accentuate its special edition status such as Speed China treadplates and wing badges (with a matching badge visible on the centre console) as well as the Bentley's famous B emblem affixed to both C pillars.
Inside we find custom leather cushions for rear passengers which are embroidered with Bentley wings. Each car will also be offered with a special display case for the ignition key.
According to Geoff Dowding, Regional Director for Asia and Middle East, Bentley has a long and proud tradition of producing exclusive cars designed to cater to the styling and driving preferences of customers around the world. He noted that the special-edition Bentleys were designed and offered only for customers in China.
He added that these models are a showcase of the abilities of the carmaker's styling and engineering teams and a highlight of Bentley's desire to create cars for the Chinese market.
Interested people could take a glimpse of the models at Bentley's stand in Hall E5 of the Auto China Motor Show in Beijing, which is set from April 23 to May 2 in the New International Exhibition Center.
