British ultra-luxury automaker Bentley will be producing two separate special edition Continental models for the Middle-East market only.

The two models will be the Continental Flying Spur Arabia and the Continental Flying Spur Speed Arabia. Bentley will limit the two special editions to a (combined) total of just 50 units.

The Flying Spur Arabia gets the standard 6.0 liter twin turbo W12 engine with 552 bhp (412kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. The Flying spur Speed Arabia gets that engine tuned upwards to 600 bhp (449 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm), shaving a tenth of a second off the 0 to 100 km/h sprint time (4.8 instead of 4.9 seconds) and adding 10 km/h to the top speed, now at 322 km/h (200 mph).

Distinguishing the models will be a localizing theme. The 'Arabia' motif will include a front fender badge as well as a tread plate and ashtray lid all badged with the Arabia signature.

Both models also get their own set of wheels. The Flying Spur Arabia comes with 14-spoke diamond alloy wheels, while the Flying Spur Speed Arabia features 10-spoke 20-inch rims in a shining silver.

Other touches include ventilated seats that can cool or warm passengers, veneered picnic tables inside the cabin and a chrome fuel cap with the 'B' insignia of Bentley.
