Description

This Shooting Brake version of the Bentley Continental GT is called Flying Star. It was introduced at the 2010 Geneva Autosalon. The Flying Star was designed by the (then 32 years young) Belgian designer Louis de Fabribeckers.

The Continental GTC received a number of modifications from the A-pillar backwards. The car has been given an extended roof line, newly designed aluminium door skins, rear quarter panels, rear bumper, new tail lights and a new aluminium, electrically operated tailgate. It also includes a completely new rear compartment with two foldable rear seats and a variable loading space. The rear chassis structure has been modified to obtain a completely flat luggage compartment with the rear seats folded down.

The Bentley Continental Flying Star was available either in the 560hp/650Nm version or the GTC Speed variant which delivers 610hp and 750Nm of torque. Touring Superleggera intended to build a limited run of 20 units, built to special order and according to customer specifications. The Flying Star was offered at a basic price of 590,000.- Euros / 803,000.- USD when based on the 560 hp Continental GTC version.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
