Bentley’s new Flying Spur is streamlined, elegant and comfortable and is the most advanced Bentley ever built
The UK car manufacturer has pulled out all the stops with this new class of vehicle; technology is state-of-the-art, finish is modern and ultra-luxurious whilst the performance speaks for itself, with long-distance driving in mind. With exclusive four-door, limousine-style comfort, this is supreme Bentley craftsmanship, marking the third-generation marque Grand Tourer.
The reinvented ultra-sleek form has an extended wheelbase and for the first time since the 1950’s, a retractable Bentley ‘Flying B’ mascot sits boldly above the gloss-black radiator matrix grille with new bright chrome vertical vanes.
The cabin is unmistakably Bentley, with contemporary lines throughout and the completely new-design fluted leather seats with diamond quilting add a stylish touch.
In the cockpit, the Bentley Rotating Display is a central feature of the exquisitely crafted dashboard. For rear passenger comfort the ultra-modern detachable touch screen remote control operates all major functions.
The interior cabin is light and airy with a full panoramic glass sunroof, whilst for night driving, mood lighting adds ambiance. For entertainment, three audio systems, including a 2,200W Naim system, are great for music lovers.
On the road, the car automatically adapts to changing environments and driving conditions. The new addition of three-chamber air springs offers a much greater range of suspension adjustment between limousine-style ride comfort and sporting levels of body control. Advanced driver assisted systems include night vision infra-red camera, traffic assist and a head-up display, all-wheel electronic steering and active all-wheel drive and Bentley dynamic ride – a 48V electric anti-roll system – that delivers exceptional handling and ride.
The new Flying Spur is powered by an enhanced version of Bentley’s 6-litre, twin-turbocharged W12. With an advanced dual-clutch eight-speed transmission, it has a top speed of 207mph (333km/h), and a 0-60mph time of 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds).
