    Last time we saw the 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur out testing, our only questions about the new car regarded its rear-end styling, and when the car would debut. Well now we know for certain that the car will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, and we're also getting a better idea of what the car will look like thanks to Bentley releasing a brief teaser video.

    Seems it's lost a little muscle (mass) in the redesign. I always liked that Bentleys had a heavy feel to them, it was imposing, but not overly. Hopefully it is just the blur of the image distorting it.

    Very generic looking basic profile. Like it could be a Mercury Sable from the 90's or something. Expected a much longer hood.

    I prefer an old-fashioned, original recipe Martini. 2 parts Gin, 1 part vermouth, and as Patrick Dennis once said: "Stir don't shake. Bruises the Gin." (James Bond was wrong.)

    The Continental and Flying Spur, to me, have always looked fat and heavy without being adequately regal or formal, like Volkswagens that have spent too much time at Golden Corral.

    Based on this very blurry photo, they appear to be pursuing something sleeker to fit the car's sporting image.

    Though he does use Vodka not Gin.
