Touring Superleggera Increases Production Of Bentley Flying Star

Bentley Flying Star

For those of you looking for a Bentley shooting brake look no further as Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera can make your dreams come true, for a hefty price of course. The Flying Star was unveiled by the Milanese coachbuilder at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show but since then, they only managed to deliver three examples of this very interesting custom creation.

Why just three examples? Because they said that for building just one, they need about 4,000 man-hours. What they do is they take a Continental GTC (the outgoing model, for now) and transform it into a long-roofed coupe. Things will take a turn for the better as they recently made an investment in the staff and equipment and they said that in the near future they will be able to make five cars at a time.

However, each example will still take 6 months to deliver and the total annual production will be limited to only 19 units. The good side is that those wealthy buyers that can afford it will be able to choose from a wide variety of customizations, including the powerful 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 that can be available in various states of tune ranging from 552 hp for the entry-level configuration and up to 621 for the Supersports model.
