2012 Bentley Continental Flying Spur Series 51

The iconic Continental style is embedded in Bentley history and our passion for luxury Grand Tourers. One of the cornerstones of the Bentley philosophy is our passion for individual colour and choice combinations with unrivalled craftsmanship. Continental Flying Spur Series 51 celebrates this passion. In September 1951, the Styling Department was officially created at Bentley. At this time, John Blatchley was appointed Chief Styling Engineer. This historic date befits the title for Bentley Continental Flying Spur Series 51, where we celebrate our continued and unrivalled passion for individual and striking choices of colour and material combinations. It is to John Blatchley that we owe some of the most defining Bentley styling moments. John Blatchley developed the early styling inspirations, for the Bentley Continental two door and drop head coupe which paved the way for the late R Type Continentals. It is these historic cars which inspired the current iconic Continental Series.

 The Bentley Continental Flying Spur Series 51 colour and style combinations represent the ultimate in effortless style and individuality. Personally selected by the Bentley Styling Team from our vast colour archive, lovingly built since the creation of the Styling Department in 1951. Bentley Continental Flying Spur Series 51 not only allows you to tap into the creative talent of out styling team, but also be a part of the exciting developments in the world of colour and commissioning at Bentley, combined with inspiring features and options.

Created especially by the styling team at Crewe, Bentley Continental Flying Spur Series 51 allows to you to commission ‘off the peg’, from Bentley Styling’s unique choice of colours, features and options for the interior of the Continental Flying Spur. Our styling experts at Crewe have created an inspiring range of exterior and interior colours, inspired by vintage cars. Bentley Series 51 features a distinctive interior two tone colour split with a third accent colour. Striking colour combinations have been personally selected by our stylists from the extensive Bentley colour archive, lovingly built up since 1951.
