Bentley Continental Flying Star

Unveiled at the Geneva International Auto Show the Bentley Continental Flying Star is one hell of a head turner. The custom fabricated uber-wagon was build by Italian Car maker Touring Superleggera at the request of one very persuasive customer and the end result is simply stunning. I love this thing… it’s big, muscular and in your face with the power to back up the attitude. Don’t believe me? How does 560 hp / 479 lbs. tq. grab ya’.

This car is a hammer, pure and simple. It was made to go like hell while carrying you, four friends and their golf clubs to any course on the planet in style. Cars like this are why car guys are car guys. It’s different, with thinking and design that’s completely out of the box. I have a feeling that the Bentley Continental Flying Star will be one of those rare beasties that will gain quite a cult following over the years. Problem is, they’re only making 20 of them per year, so you guys best get your orders in now.

And yes… they’ll be expensive.

    As a fan of all automobilia, and a magazine publisher and frequent automobile writer who has the benefit of seeing and driving quite a few interesting rides, I must admit that Touring Superleggera’s rendition of Bentley’s already bad ass car is one that really got me thinking. Not so much about robbing the old piggy bank (albeit, a few hundred thousand short for this one) but about how the big boys at VW should seriousely take a look at making something similar to this in the upcoming Bentley lineup.

    We all know that the old ‘Shooting Brake’ was once a popular stable of true British motoring and everyone from Aston to Bentely to MG put a few of them together and on the road two or three decades ago, so why not be brave -uh, I mean “forward thinking”- and make this great looking and performing ride more than just a limited edition 25 car exercise. After all, even in “real” Bentley production numbers, you wouldn’t likely run into another one at the local strip mall.

      I couldn’t agree with you more and I absolutely think there is a place for this automobile… or at least something similar.

      so why not be brave

      … are there any of those left in the automobile industry?

    Well, put Estell. I too would love to see such as car as the Bentley three door “brake” put into production, and I just might decide to add one to my own garage. Not to brag, but as one who does have an extensive ride collection of my own, I think kept to the 200-600 manufacturing range, that VW would see that their Bentley dealers would move these cars like hotcakes, even at just north of $225k or so.
