Bentley Flying Spur model would be moved away from the Continental GT line

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 13, 2012

Bentley will present the updated EXP 9 F Concept within the next few months. It can be recalled that it got plenty of criticism when it debuted. However, Bentley also got some positive comments and decided to proceed with the design of the SUV concept albeit with major styling revisions. David Hilton, Bentley’s new head of exterior design, said that its appearance will be sleeker and that its front end is likely to be controversial.

So far, the SUV still hasn’t gotten approval to start production. According to Kevin Rose, member of the Bentley board in charge of sales and marketing, the automaker aims to introduce a new or updated model every couple of years. It’s quite surprising that the Flying Spur model would be moved away from the Continental GT line.

It will be a lineup of its own and so it won’t anymore carry the Continental name. It’s believed that the Flying Spur will be sportier, differentiating it from the Continental GT models. This means that more radical styling changes are to be expected for the next-generation Continental GT model. Hilton said that there will be bolder upgrades for the upcoming models.
