The chassis number of a Flying Spur has:
- the letter G on the fifth position
- a number between 54602 and 55761.

Further details about the production and the chassis numbers
- In 1995 the numbers of the following models are mixed within the same series of numbers: Silver Spirit III, Silver Spur III, Silver Dawn, Flying Spur, Bentley Turbo R, Bentley Turbo R LWB, Bentley Brooklands, Bentley Brooklands LWB.
- Number 54602 was built as a 1994 Silver Spur III (SCAZN02C0RCX54602). After some months the car got the turbocharged engine of the Flying Spur. Number 54602 was changed into a 1995 Flying Spur number (SCAZG03C2SCX54602), but Silver Spur III number 54602 was not deleted. In the archives the number 54602 is the only number that exists for two cars. In the archives a note can be found with the text: "Will all concerned please note that 54602 was converted + used as the development “Flying Spur” during jan – april 94. J Dyer."
