After the initial success of the Continental GT coupe, Bentley felt it necessary to add a sedan version to its plutocratic lineup. Using the same Volkswagen Phaeton underpinnings and 552-horsepower, 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W-12 as the Conti GT, the Continental Flying Spur offers sedan spaciousness at a much lower price than Bentley's flagship sedan line, the Arnage. The all-wheel-drive Flying Spur will muscle itself to 60 mph in about five seconds flat on its way to a 190-mph-plus top speed. Styling cues and interior appointments carry over from the Continental GT, as does the use of a PETA-instigating eleven hides in each vehicle.

The Flying Spur will begin cruising boulevards and showing up in hip-hop videos this spring at a price around $170,000. At that price, you could buy the Volkswagen Phaeton it's based on, along with every other vehicle in the VW lineup. But what status would that give you?
