People of Oversteer, I present to you a 2007 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, currently listed for sale on Autotrader, that's the following things: bright green and incredibly cheap. I suspect, in the world of used Bentleys, "bright green" goes hand in hand with "incredibly cheap."

So I'll start with the particulars. This is a 2007 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, which is the sedan version of the gorgeous Continental GT Coupe, and it's currently offers for sale at Auto Deal Corp. in West Park, Florida, near Fort Lauderdale. And yes, it's green: not dark green, or some shade of gray that looks like green from certain angles, but legitimately, seriously, green. Apparently, it was always green, because the Carfax report shows DMV records that note the car as "green" as early as 2007.

Maybe more amazing than the fact that it's green is the asking price: $26,997, which is about $140,000 off the original price, and surely cheap enough to make it the least expensive Continental-era Bentley on Autotrader. The asking price also buys you huge wheels and a gorgeous brown interior, though it may also include green accents on the dashboard -- it's hard to tell for sure.

So why's it so cheap? The primary reason is the mileage: While most Bentley models from this era were used sparingly as second or third cars for special occasions, this one has covered 84,400 miles, which likely makes it the highest-mileage 2007 Bentley on Autotrader. The Carfax report also tells a sad story, with two separate accidents -- one in New York and one in Florida.

Still, those things only give this Flying Spur extra character, right?
