1959-1962 BENTLEY S2/S3 Flying Spur specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Continental chassis were intended just for two-door Bentleys but, in 1957, HJ Mulliner was given special dispensation to build variations with four doors. These graceful cars were christened Flying Spurs and featured bigger boots than their more racy-looking two-door counterparts. The same changes made to the S2 and S3 saloons were also applied to the Flying Spur, so in 1959 there came the 6230cc V8 engine and, for 1962, twin headlamps were adopted. These final cars were considered the most handsome of the bunch.
