Billionaire stock market investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala’s Bentley Continental Flying Spur was spotted recently. The new super luxurious sedan was spotted on the roads of Mumbai, Maharashtra recently.
The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is available in two variants in India. The most affordable variant is available for Rs 3.7 crore, on-road while the top-end variant powered by the W12 engine gets a price tag of massive Rs 4 crore. These prices are without any optional extras. Since most of the owners of such super luxury cars choose optional extras and go for customised cabin options, the price is likely to be a few lakh more than the standard model.
We are not sure about the exact variant that Rakesh Jhunjhunwala has bought. However, it seems like the top-end version gets the most powerful engine option. Interestingly, this is not the updated Bentley Continental Flying Spur that was showcased in India recently and gets a differently styled grille. This is the previous version of the car that Jhunjhunwala bought some time ago. This model came out in the market in 2005 and was discontinued in 2012.
However, the luxurious sedan is not often spotted on the roads. Hence, this is one of the few rare occasions when the Jhunjhunwala’s Bentley was spotted on the public roads by Automobili Ardent.
Bentley Continental Flying Spur gets powerful engine options
The Bentley Continental Flying Spur base is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 500 Bhp at 6,000 rpm and peak torque of 660 Nm at 1,700 rpm. The twin-turbocharged engine is mated to an 8-speed transmission and sends the power to all four wheels.
The more powerful Bentley Continental Flying Spur is powered by a massive 6.0-litre W12 petrol engine that generates a maximum of 616 Bhp at 6,000 rpm and peak torque of 800 Nm at 1,700 rpm. It also gets an 8-speed transmission.
Many celebrities own the same car
Many celebrities in India and around the world own the Bentley Continental Flying Spur. Virat Kohli is an avid fan of the Bentley cars and owns two super luxurious sedans. The one located in Mumbai is the Continental Flying Spur and it seems like Virat got the vehicle second-hand.
Also, the billionaire Poonawalla owns the Flying Spur with Mansory kit, which makes it unique in India. The Flying Spur in the video looks quite aggressive with the Mansory body kit that adds various parts like a rear spoiler, bumper spoiler, carbon fibre hood lid and side skirts. It also gets a Mansory exhaust system. On the C-Pillar, the Bentley gets the Poonawalla logo while the wooden dashboard gets the name of the family etched on it.
