The Roaring ’20s will start with the roaring of the all-new Bentley Flying Spur, a vehicle that fuses the comfort of a limousine with the performance of a sports sedan. This is the third generation of Bentley’s luxury four-door Grand Tourer.
The Flying Spur resembles its antecedent in name only. The new design is original from start to finish and comes with innovative features.
Manufactured at Bentley’s Crewe, England factory, the new Bentley Flying Spur will be seen on the world’s most luxurious and famous streets starting in early 2020.
“The absolute commitment to excellence has been taken to a different level on this car,” says Peter Guest, Bentley’s Product Line Director, of the Flying Spur. “Every aspect of its technical solution has pushed our technology and manufacturing ability to the absolute limit. This is, without a doubt, the most advanced Bentley ever built.”
The retractable Bentley “Flying B” mascot leads the car, a first for a modern-day Flying Spur. It is electronically operated and rises from beneath the Bentley badge. It will be driven by the new 21- and 22-inch wheel designs.
A lavish interior comes with newly design fluted leather seats, featuring diamond quilting for the Mulliner Driving Specification. Three-dimensional diamond-quilted leather doors are a world first.
The Bentley Rotating Display on the dashboard and the Touch Screen Remote Control in the rear allow total power of the vehicle’s many features.
Electronic All-Wheel Steering is used for the first time in a Bentley, combining with Active All-Wheel Drive and Bentley Dynamic Ride—the world’s first 48V electric anti-roll system—to deliver phenomenal handling and ride.
Driver assistance systems include a Night Vision infra-red camera, Traffic Assist, Blind Spot Warning and a Head-Up Display, an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot and more.
At the heart of the Flying Spur is an enhanced version of Bentley’s 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12, mated to an advanced dual-clutch eight-speed transmission for faster, smoother gear changes. The new TSI engine delivers 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h time of 3.8 seconds) and a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).
The all-new Flying Spur is available to order. Customer deliveries will begin in early 2020.
