Princess Anne's Continental Flying Spur

Lets take a look at this 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur.

It is very nice in sapphire blue with its 20" diamond cut alloy wheels.

It even looks quite unassuming, as it is so proper.

But a keen Bentley Spotter would notice some unusual shadows behind the grill. Notice them?

Lets open it up and take a look. Extra lights!

Here they are in action.

Blue. Blue blood in fact.

That's right, this is Princess Anne's old Bentley Continental Flying Spur, and below is a photo of the car under formal escort, with the extra lights put to good use.

The BBC has reported that on one occasion, Princess Anne was driving her Bentley to a function, and a Police car pulled up behind her with its lights on. Princess Anne thought it was an escort, and carried on at speed. Unfortunately on that occasion the Police car was trying to pull her over for speeding. Woops, her solicitor had to explain the situation to the Court. Read about it here.

That story was actually in 2001, before this Bentley was made, so it could have been a Bentley Turbo R, or maybe a Continental, I'm not sure.

Now to the interior.

The two tone certainly is impressive.

And now to the rear seats.

The 4 seat option with full length console is quite Stately.

Fit for a Princess one might say.

Here is a video of the car. The electronic rear blind in action is a sight not often recorded.

And if you would like to purchase the car, it is currently available from Marlow Cars Ltd. where there are quite a number of additional photos.

Quite Royal. Princess Margaret's old 1954 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV is still for sale also here!
