 Pros The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is a very well rounded luxury car. It provides good performance with ride comfort and amenities that few other companies can even come close to matching. It's as much a pleasure to drive as it is to ride in.

 Pros Price is reasonable, for a Bentley. The basic model costs about $190,000, but buyers can expect to spend as much as a new Honda on optional extras.

 Pros The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is much more subtle than its competitors. Compared to the BMW 760Li and the Rolls Royce Ghost, the Bentley performs quietly and draws relatively little attention.

 Pros The Flying Spur is at home driving through traffic, with a classic design and professional colors, it will not draw unnecessary attention.

 Pros The engine will run on gasoline, B85 bio fuel, or a combination of the two. Who said green can't be classy?

 Pros Every Bentley is hand-made, ensuring the highest quality.

 Cons Poor cup holder placement means that drivers will have to select between a place to put their beverage and a place to rest their arm.

 Cons A Motortrend reviewer noted that the car seems to be designed to be driven in, rather than to drive. The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is more of a passenger's car.

 Cons Electronic stability control cannot be completely turned off, so the brakes will be constantly working during sessions of spirited driving.

 Cons The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is fairly expensive compared to other, sportier models.
