Special-edition Continental Flying Spur Speed launched at the Qatar motor show
26 January 2011

Bentley has launched a special 'Arabia' edition of its Continental Flying Spur Speed at the Qatar motor show in Doha.

Only 50 units of the model will be made, each selling for 894,000 Qatar Riyals (£155,000). It boasts a range of additional extras over standard Speeds, mainly focused on the visual elements of the car. They are distinguished by exterior and interior ‘Arabia’ motifs that appear on the front bumper, the tread plate and ashtray lid badge.

The Flying Spur Speed Arabia has bright silver, 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels that are compatible with optional carbon ceramic brakes. Its exterior colour choices are also unique.

Inside, there are ventilated fluted seats, veneered picnic tables with inset vanity mirrors to the rear of the front seats and deep-pile carpet mats with hide trimming.

The Flying Spur Speed comes with a more powerful 600bhp version of Bentley’s W12 engine, which also puts out 553lb ft of torque. This allows it to achieve a top speed of 200mph and a 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds.
