Its official launch is due in the coming hours, but the 2014 Bentley Contintental Flying Spur has broken cover early today.

The "baby" Bentley four-door has had a styling refresh under designers Dirk van Braekel and Gareth Thomas, bringing it into line with the Continental GT and GTC and big brother Mulsanne.

The ageing curves of the previous model have been sharpened up, and the boot even has a touch of Rolls Royce Phantom about it.

The interior has also come in for some work, gaining a new steering wheel, instruments, switchgear and centre console.

Cabin materials have been updated, although there's no word on the Mulsanne's duck-down loose cushions moving down the range.

As always, there's an enormous amount of leather, wood and wool applied to the spacious interior.

The car shown here is said to be powered by a 6.0 litre twin turbo W12, which in other Bentley models produces a meteor-chasing 460kW and 800Nm of torque.

Also expected in the Flying Spur is the Audi sourced V8 turbo, good for around 373kW and 660Nm. The V8 model will sport figure-eight shaped exhausts to differentiate from the V12, which has two simpler oval-shaped pipes.

Both models are expected to pick up the ZF eight-speed from the GT and GTC.

As is so often the case, the Flying Spur was teased through a series of videos ahead of today's launch and its public debut at the Geneva Show in two week's time, alongside an updated Mulsanne.
