Bentley Spy Photos

The Lehmann Photo-Syndication is renowned for getting the first spy photos of new cars well before they go into production.

This photograph hit the net well well before the Bentley Continental Flying Spur was released. I recall that is was only a little while after the Bentley Continental GT was sold.

It is now interesting the comparison between the first spy photo and the real thing. The spy shot is oh so similar.

Here is the spy photograph.

Now take a look at the real thing.

The rear door arch has been changed significantly. The door line is on the actual Flying Spur is more rounded and limousine type than sedan type of the spy photo.

Everything else is pretty much the same. My guess is that it was an initial test vehicle. Interesting.
