Bentley Motors has announced two Continental models, which are specially designed for the Middle East market. Both models offer a range of striking features to match the taste of Arabic customers.
Because the Middle East market now represents 10 per cent of Bentley retail sales globally, the compnay have to take care for its customers demands.
Bentley has dealers in Dubai, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Jeddah, Riyadh and Al Khobar. These two new models have been launched specifically for this unique market.
The two new models are the Continental Flying Spur Arabia and the Continental Flying Spur Speed Arabia. Both cars are further distinguished by some subtle exterior and interior „Arabia” motifs. These include an exterior front fender badge, tread plate and ashtray lid badge – all bearing the Arabia signature.
Flying Spur Speed Arabia is powered by enormous W12 6 litre engine, which produces 610PS and 750Nm of torque. The acceleration for such big car is just astonishing – 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds and the top speed of 322 km/h makes Flying Spur Speed Arabia the world’s fastest luxury four-door saloon.
The huge car stands on 14-spoke diamond alloy wheel or vibrant and sporty, bright silver, 10-spoke, 20” wheels. The carbon ceramic brakes are available as an option.
Bentley is one of the most luxurious brands in the world and they offer unique style and comfort touches to their cars. Continental Flying Spur Arabia features ventilated fluted seats that effectively cool and warm the body, helping driver and passengers always to stay comfortable. The car has veneered picnic tables to the rear of front seats inset with vanity mirrors, chrome inlay strips to the door waistrails and deep-pile carpet mats with hide trimming. To surprise and delight the customer, even the fuel cap has been designed with jewellery in mind and is engineered in bright chrome with the famous „B” badge.
For convenience, an additional valet key is offered with limited functionality that allows the car to be driven without giving access to the boot or glove box. This provides secure storage of personal belongings when using valet parking services.
The options list is impressive – Adaptive Cruise Control with „follow to stop feature”, a rear-view camera, the iPod interface linked to the infotainment system and privacy phone handsets in the front and rear of the car and much more.
“We have created these exclusive new models for our Arabic customers in recognition of the growing importance of these influential customers. Bentley has a long and proud tradition of being able to design, engineer and personalise our cars to the individual styling and driving tastes of our customers and these special-edition Bentleys showcase these skills for the Middle East Market”, commented Geoff Dowding, Regional Director, Asia and Middle East.
