‘I do’ want to hire the Bentley Flying Spur
Satisfy your need for speed and luxury in Cape Town in the world’s fastest four-seater sedan
Cape Town, South Africa is a rare and beautiful place. Built around one of the new seven wonders of nature in the world, the city and its surrounding azure waters, dramatic cliffs and idyllic vineyards are like something out of an incredible book or movie, which is slightly ironic as many of the world’s top film productions are shot here. It’s fitting, then, that the Bentley Flying Spur, a rare and beautiful machine that only a lucky few have the privilege of experiencing, is available for rent as the ideal vehicle for conquering the Mother City.
As the fastest four-door car in the world, this exquisite chariot is the obvious choice for those who demand unrestrained luxury, no matter if you’re hiring the vehicle as a wedding car, conducting crucial business deals from within or simply arriving in unparalleled style.
About the Bentley Flying Spur
In a car like a Bentley Flying Spur luxury is obvious and craftsmanship unrivalled. Practically every inch of the vehicle is handmade. The leather is flawless and sourced only from Scandinavian countries where there are no insects, a fact that means the hide is near perfect. The dashboard is solid wood, built from rare eucalyptus by lone crafters who hold themselves to standards as high as the trees themselves.
It goes without saying, then, that the feeling of travelling in the Flying Spur is not unlike lounging in a lord’s library, regardless of whether you’re sitting up front or reclining on one of the sumptuous rear seats.
And then of course, there is the feeling of speed. The Flying Spur is the fastest four-door car ever made. Officially, the Bentley will do 312km/h, or 195mph, but there are rumours that on the right piece of road, it can hit the notorious “double tonne” – 200mph or 320km/h. The wonderful thing is, there are places in South Africa where that is legal and possible.
