Pricewatch: Bentley Continental Flying Spur v Mercedes-Benz S600L

FLEET NewsNet looks at how new cars taken on to a fleet might perform over the next three years/60,000 miles.

Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle.

This week, we compare two ultra-luxury saloons – Bentley’s Continental Flying Spur and the new long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S600L.
