Bentley Continental and Flying Spur receive 2023 updates

New exterior and interior tweaks revealed for Bentley’s luxury saloon and grand tourer

Last year we saw Bentley stretch the Bentayga with an EWB Azure model and now this has sparked a series of upgrades for the two-door Continental GT and four-door Flying Spur

Starting with the Continental GT and the GTC convertible models, Azure trim will now add 22-inch ten spoke black wheels and a ‘Vertical Vane Grille’ with chrome elements in front of a black mesh.

The interior of the two-door Continentals gets a new design of quilted upholstery and deep pile, 100 per cent wool carpets. Bentley says the standard-fit carpets across its range have also been made more sustainable with 100 per cent recycled Nylon. An optional Blackline package now becomes available on the Continental GT Speed variant.

The Flying Spur four-door has also received some tweaks with the same 22-inch wheels as on the Continental Azure, a new mesh grille pattern plus a new Topaz Blue exterior paint finish. Another new detail is the optional dark tint brushed aluminium for exterior accents - which we’ve seen before on the Bentayga. 

Bentley’s new updates to its Flying Spur and Continental are available to order now. For the latter these changes should keep it fresh until a mid-life facelift Continental launches this year.
