Interesting article from TG website:

Drive a Bentley Conti Flying Spur? Own a lot of expensive jewellery?
We're guessing the two go hand-in-hand, but if you answered 'yes' to both questions, you might want to find yourself a watertight alibi for Thursday July 5. That's the day that a gang of deeply dapper burglars stole jewellery worth some £10 million from a Knightsbridge diamond store... using a chauffeur-driven Flying Spur as the heist vehicle.

We have to applaud the savoir-faire of the robbers - one of them arrived in a Panama hat and blazer - but the Flying Spur wouldn't be our first choice for an anonymous getaway vehicle.
Only 400 have been produced, which should make the job of tracking down the implicated car somewhat easier.
So if you own a natty Panama (as well as a Flying Spur and lots of jewellery), expect a knock from some friendly members of the constabulary very soon.

Maybe it was up for a service and they had to pay for it.

Good car though - my father has just swapped his cls500 for one in Spain. Will take some pics when I steal it next weekend. (prob before the jewellery shop stop)
