Aamir Khan, Mr. ‘perfectionist’ of Bollywood, has always been known for his acting skills, movies and social work. Although, a very few people know that the actor also has a great fascination for swanky and expensive cars. He owns various extremely luxurious and expensive cars including Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Mercedes Benz S600 Guard, Rolls Royce Ghost and more. The actor has been snapped several times with his most favorite Bentley Continental at different events. The Continental Flying Spur is also owned by Virendra Sehwag – one of the most destructive batsmen in the world.
The Continental Flying Spur is an ultra-fast, four-door super luxury saloon, which shares its platform with the new Continental GT Coupe. At the front end, it sports two pairs of circular headlights, LED-encrusted intricacy, a wide lower front air dam, a chrome band bisecting a running mesh of chrome and a stylish grille. The flowing shoulder line, slopping roof and pronounced haunches add more to its sporty appearance.
Interior is an opulent luxury. It’s spacious and very practical, too. All four seats are cooled, heated, massaging and reclining that offer immense comfort. Seats have leather stitching and soft pillow cushions. Wrapped in plenty of leather, metal, wood and fine details, the cabin looks very stunning and sporty. The saloon is power-packed with a 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine with a new engine management system that reduces its carbon emission by 13%.
The Continental Flying Spur is one of the most powerful Bentley cars in India. It delivers a whooping power of 616bhp with 81.6kgm of torque. Boosted with ZF’s 8-speed automatic transmission and AWD (All-wheel drive), it is claimed to achieve 0-100kmph in just 4.6 seconds. In Sports mode, the throttle response is very strong. In normal Drive mode, the car runs gently in the line, but then there is a sudden surge of torque that prolongs to the red-line. The saloon’s suspension comes with a ‘Raise’ mode that helps it deal with the nasty speed breakers and potholes. The regal looks, plush interior and ultra-fast performance are the three major reasons why the Continental Flying Spur is one of the popular celebrity cars in India or elsewhere.
