But are Americans really shelling out the dough for this four-door sedan?

Georges said Bentley is seeing its business "spiking" as a result of new releases such as the Flying Spur, saying "consumers feel, still, very confident."

The Flying Spur's 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged, W12 engine produces 626 horsepower and can reportedly go from zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. Its top speed is 207 mph.

Georges said 207 mph is "achievable in the car" because of added technology.
