Left: Red Label Arnage The most obvious feature is the headlamp cover, mercifully dropped from 2005 on.
Right: The late Arnage (2005 on) dispensed with the "bubble" over the headlamps, presenting a frontal aspect similar to the Brooklands coupe and the remodelled Azure. This one also has a chrome radiator shell and two-tone paint.
This frontal shot of another late Arnage shows the bonnet line and framing of the headlamps to be distinct from the Continental R. It is, however, similar (perhaps identical) to that of the Brooklands coupe and the "new" Azure that was derived from it.

Right: a black 2010 Continental GTC and white Continental Supersport; enlarged lower-wing and bonnet vents give this 2-seater, 200+mph car a distinctive appearance.
In 2012, 4 litre V8-engined versions of the Continental GT and GTC (pictured here) were launched. DIstinguishing features are a gloss black mesh grille in a chrome surround and figure-of-eight exhaust tailpipes.
The grey Continental Flying Spur alongside the GTC (foreground) illustrates distinctive features beside the fact that it has four doors.
It is more upright in appearance, both as to the radiator shell and the front wing line. Both these cars are 2010 models.
A New Flying Spur was launched in 2013: details and pictures are below

The new Mulsanne, unveiled in 2010, is Bentley's current flagship car.
Seen here alongside a Continental R, the sheer bulk of the Mulsanne is evident. This one has a chrome radiator; two-tone finishes are also an option.
A new Flying Spur model was introduced in March 2013; because this is a completely new car, designed from the ground up, rather than a four-door variant of the Continental GT, "Continental" has been dropped from the name. The most obvious identifying feature is that the outer headlamps are larger then the inner ones.
At the time of writing, the New Flying Spur is probably the fastest four-door saloon ... in the world.
