Cruising the Pacific Coast Highway in the Incredible New Bentley Flying Spur

The temperature was a cool 65 degrees and the mist lay curled around the peninsula as we pulled on our driving gloves outside the posh Inn at Spanish Bay on Pebble Beach’s legendary 17-mile drive. The soft lambskin olive green gloves, purchased at a century-old leather shop in Florence, just happened to contrast perfectly with the plum Bentley Flying Spur we’d be driving down to Los Angeles. The new 2014 Flying Spur, Bentley’s most powerful four-door model ever, managed to turn a lot of well-coiffed heads in Pebble Beach, which is no mean feat; during the annual Concours d’Elegance the roads are filled with more Ferraris and Lamborghinis than you usually see in a lifetime. Bentleys don’t scream “look at me,” but they still exude a powerful allure, an almost magnetic attraction sparked by the sweeping, supple lines of the super-formed aluminum exterior.
