Bentley fans visiting the Geneva Auto Show were in for a treat as the famous automaker unveiled yet another stunning beauty at this car expo.
This is the Bentley Continental Flying Star by Touring Superleggera, a stylish transformation of a 2-door coupe in a shooting brake with plenty of space to join a hunting party or a golf tournament which keeps the elegance and efficiency. Based on either the Bentley Continental GTC the Flying Star can be built with a 560 hp twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine, or the GTC Speed with a 610 hp engine, only 20 examples will be built at a base price of about $800,000 each.
The rear bodywork was also reinforced with an integrated structure between the rear suspension domes, functioning both as roll bar, and as support for the new, extended roofline. The term shooting brake does not refer to the braking system but originated with custom built two-door luxury estate cars altered for use by hunters and other sportsmen such as golfers, equestrians, and polo players requiring easy access to larger storage areas than offered by the typical automobile trunk.
The design is completed by the impressive 20-inch Borrani X-Ray spoke wheels. As you expected, inside, the car remains a true Bentley showing elegance, whether the back of the rear seats are folded or not.
