2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Mansory Bentley Continental Flying Spur

Usually, the Brand, Germany tuner is known for very questionable upgrades of beautiful sports or luxury cars. This time around Mansory is proving rather tastefully restrained with its take on the Bentley Continental Flying Spur.

While today the tuner – established by Kourosh Mansory in 1989 – has modified a wide range of cars from automakers, in its early days it focused especially on British built cars. So, the Flying Spur modification is natural and it shows how much the firm has progressed in its carbon fiber modification process.

The Flying Spur has much coachwork finished in chrome, brown and carbon fibre – with the latter showing up on the bonnet, the front apron (with separately integrated LED’s and daytime running lights, so you know it’s a Mansory), the side skirts, the rear apron and the rear spoiler.

The 6.0 litre W12 engine that usually sits in the Bentley’s front belly also spent some time with the tuner’s engineers, which took the power from a very good 635 hp to an outstanding output of no less than 900 hp – with the torque actually electronically limited to 1100 Nm to avoid any damage to the drivetrain. The performance numbers have been thoroughly upgraded – from the series 320 km/h top speed to the now 340 km/h limit, while the 0-100 km/h run is done in just 3.6 seconds.
