Evolution of the Flying Spur

The new Flying Spur is the world’s definitive four-door grand tourer: a car built without compromise. Powerful, yet refined. Dynamic, yet serene. Contemporary, yet distinguished. To appreciate this, you’d have to discover its evolution and we are pleased to present an exhibition featuring all three generations of this extraordinary sedan. 'The Evolution Of The Flying Spur' exhibition runs from 19 February to 10 March 2020.

Continental Flying Spur | 2005 to 2012
Launched in 2005, the first generation Continental Flying Spur was launched as a four-door saloon sibling to the 2003 Continental coupe, retaining the performance values of the GT, while offering the space, convenience and refinement that only a luxury grand touring sedan can offer.  Available in both a Speed version, where performance was amplified and the design echoed its sporting character and Series 51 - where design values were paramount and for the first time a three-tone interior was offered, making personalisation almost limitless.

Flying Spur (2013–2018)
In 2013, the second generation of Flying Spur was introduced: a more sporting, muscular design than the first generation with a sharply defined body shape, distinctive upright grille, large jewel headlamps, sharp fender wing vents and athletic design lines. The interior built upon the design DNA of the first generation but offered new veneers, new materials and new design elements which continued the Flying Spur story for the next generation. Additionally, new technology was offered, including the Touch Screen Remote (TSR) to control comfort and infotainment settings from the rear of the car.
