If you did not click the pics, then you must mention the source.

, this car must have cost pittence to build and a bomb for the buyer, if it was made for a special custom order. As of now it looks wierd and unlike the master pieces from the Bentley stable but i feel the more you look at it, the smile will come on.

Right now i just like the key and the key ring of the car .

Thumbs up

I think it looks gorgeous! Perfect companion to a Defender at an English Manor in the countryside.

It is not based on the Flying Spur but as will be evident to Bentley fans, it's based on the Continental GTC.

It's intended for Gentlemen of Leisure. Those who love their supercars but require space to carry a few hunting rifles or golf clubs

As others have mentioned it's a shooting brake.

From WikiPedia

The term originated with custom built 2-door luxury estate cars altered for use by hunters and other sportsmen such as golfers, riders, and polo players requiring easy access to larger storage areas than offered by the typical automobile boot.

In the early 19th century, a brake was a large carriage-frame with no body, used for breaking in young horses. By the late 19th century the meaning had been extended to a large waggonette designed for country use. A "shooting brake" carried a driver and gamekeeper facing forward and up to six sportsmen on longitudinal benches with their dogs, guns and game carried alongside in slat-sided racks.

The carpet in the back is made out of woven leather!

Personally I'd love to see a Speed variant of this Flying Star!

Ha ha ha... It's a hatchback: won't sell at it's price in India

But seriously, isn't this a coupe? I don't know.

I certainly wouldn't say no if anyone wants to give me one. Yes, the rear is a trifle weird, but not the worst by any means.
