On July 24, during the Elton John AIDS Foundation Gala, Bentley announced the release of their limited-edition model, the all-new 2020 Flying Spur. At the gala, it was auctioned off to one of the guests, which included stars from the biopic, Rocketman, and many other A-listers. The proceeds will go towards the foundation. The first owner of the Flying Spur First Edition has been invited by Bentley “to create their own bespoke and completely unique car through Bentley’s exclusive Co-Creation Luxury Service, offered only to a tiny selection of clients.” Customizing this new luxury car will come with a sense of purpose after donating to a foundation that helps people all around the world and an overwhelming feeling of options to create a sleek sedan so rare to other Bentley models that it will be built for only 12 months beginning at the end of 2019.

Let’s talk exterior. There have been several models of Bentley’s Flying Spur over the years with luxury exterior features that are optional. On the limited-run model of the new Flying Spur, these features, which include the electronic Flying B hood ornament with illuminated wings, the spectacular Bentley Rotating Display, and the Touring, are automatically included. The aluminum lines decorating the exterior of this beautiful vehicle give it a corporate and sharp presence. Bentley proudly reminds spectators of the Flying Spur’s manufacturer by widening the grill on the face and forming an obvious “B” shape on the side vents. Even the wraparound taillights illuminate a “B” graphic. To add prominence to the outer center, a First Edition badge consisting of a Union Jack flag with the number one displayed on is perfectly revealed. Once walking around to the back of the vehicle, people will see the car’s limited edition nature by laying eyes on the First Edition treadplates. To top things off, chrome arches decorate the sides and are filled with 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification alloy wheels.

Much like former models, the 2020 Flying Spur First Edition includes a luxurious interior. Once climbing inside this beautiful car, the driver and his or her fellow passengers will be dazzled by the First Edition Bentley Winged Emblems embroidered into the headrests. The First Edition badge described above is also placed on the C-pillars of the passenger-side dashboard. For the owner’s peace of mind and safety, driving assistance systems such as lane assist, night vision, head-up display and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist are included. The added interior features, also found in previous Flying Spur vehicles, include configurable mood lighting, a panoramic sunroof, and color-match electrically operated Alcantara blinds.

Finally, the only thing the New 2020 Bentley Flying Spur has not changed is what can be found under the hood. With exceptional horsepower, the power plant enables 0-62 miles per hour sprint in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 207 miles per hour. This luxury vehicle from Bentley also includes an impressive dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission attached to a six-liter W12 gasoline engine producing 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Buyers who are looking for a vehicle with class, yet ridden with incredible speed need to act fast!
