Middle East to get customised Bentley models

Bentley will be producing two special edition Continental models for the Middle-East market only, namely the Continental Flying Spur Arabia and the Continental Flying Spur Speed Arabia. Bentley will limit the two special editions to a (combined) total of just 50 units.

The Flying Spur Arabia gets the standard 6.0 liter twin turbo W12 engine with 552 bhp and 650 Nm of torque. The Flying spur Speed Arabia gets the same engine tuned upwards to 600 bhp and 750 Nm. The Flying Spur Arabia and Flying Spur Speed Arabia does the century sprint in 4.9 seconds and 4.8 seconds respectively.

These two special editions feature special Arabia badges on their fenders, door sills and ash-tray lid. The non-Speed Flying Spur also gets a new unique 14-spoke wheel design while the higher performance model gets 20-inch, ten-spoke wheels. Other touches include ventilated seats that can cool or warm passengers, veneered picnic tables inside the cabin and a chrome fuel cap with the 'B' insignia of Bentley.

Middle East now accounts for one-tenth of Bentley’s worldwide sales and supports the region with nine dealers. We can expect more of these special editions to come from Bentley and other brands both in the Middle East and China, as both markets become increasingly important to ultra high-end automakers.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
