Bentley unveiled today two unique Continental models, engineered and designed exclusively for the Middle East market, which represents 10 per cent of firm's retail sales globally.
The new vehicles carry the same impressive W12, 6-litre engine capable to delivering 600 bhp (610 ps, 449 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque in the Flying Spurr Speed Arabia while in the Flying Spur version delivers 552bhp (560 ps, 412kW). With these numbers the car can hit 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 322 km/h. The Flying Spur Arabia hits 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 312 km/h.
The unique modes are offered, of course, with unique wheels. The Continental Flying Spur Arabia is designed with an elegant 14-spoke diamond alloy wheel while the Continental Flying Spur Speed Arabia receives bright silver, 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels.
Inside we find veneered picnic tables to the rear of front seats inset with vanity mirrors, chrome inlay strips to the door waistrails and deep-pile carpet mats with hide trimming. Even the fuel cap has been engineered in bright chrome with the famous B badge.
Bentley also offers an additional valet key with limited functionality that allows him to drive the car without having access to the boot or glove box.
This means the car is safer when using valet parking services. Also, the models include Adaptive Cruise Control with follow to stop feature, a rear-view camera, the iPod interface linked to the infotainment system and privacy phone handsets in the front and rear of the car.

According to Geoff Dowding, Asia and Middle East Regional Director, the company has a long tradition of designing, engineering, and personalizing its cars to suit its customers’ driving tastes and individual styles.
This is one of the reasons why Bentley created these special edition models for the Middle East market, he adds. The exclusive models were also made to acknowledge how important the Arabic customers are to the company, Dowding continues.
