Known History

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur, which went on sale in 2005, may be considered a worthy heir to the Mulliner-bodied Bentley S1 of the same name from the end of the 1950s: a luxurious four-door saloon with a big engine made for long journeys in complete comfort.

This example was delivered new in November 2006 in Cap d'Ail. Its lavish brown leather interior, combined with 'Beluga Black' paintwork, undoubtedly prompted Kenzo Takada, the famous fashion designer and founder of the Kenzo brand, to use it as his personal car until his death in 2020.

The service book documents its regular maintenance until 2014, when it had covered 77,146km. Today, it has done just under 118,000km and is in need of a general service, including the replacement of the batteries. The buyer will also need to carry out the statutory safety inspection. The bodywork is in used condition and bears the marks of the car's use in Paris, which should be made good to restore it to the condition befitting its status. Its impressive level of equipment and meticulous finish make it a privilege to get behind the wheel. The sunroof adds to the driver's pleasure, while the rear-seat passengers enjoy a regal standard of comfort. The twin-turbo 12-cylinder engine is as docile in town as it is ferocious when provoked (0-100km/h in 5.2sec!), leaving the owner to hesitate between taking the wheel of this 'supersaloon' or relaxing in the sumptuous rear compartment.
