All-New Bentley Flying Spur Announced

Luxury British carmaker Bentley has announced a new version of its Flying Spur sedan. Check it out.

The Bentley Flying Spur has been replaced by an all-new version. "As with the launch of the Continental GT, the new Flying Spur is a ground-up development that pushes the boundaries of both technology and craftsmanship to deliver segment-defining levels of performance and refinement," comments Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors.

Not only is it luxurious, but Bentley is claiming massive levels of technology. There's an all-new aluminium composite chassis, as well as 48V electronic architecture. The vehicle also features electronic all-wheel steering for the first time on a Bentley, coupled with active all-wheel drive and new three-chamber air springs. The vehicle rides on new 22-inch alloy wheels and is physically longer, with the wheelbase lengthened by 130 mm.

Under the bonnet of the new Bentley Flying Spur is a revised version of the mighty 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 motor pushing out 467 kW and 900 Nm. Power goes to all 4 wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. Despite its large size, it's not slow at all, with a claimed 0-100 kph of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 333 kph. There's an assortment of semi-autonomous safety tech thrown in, with Traffic Assist, City Assist and Blind Spot Warning.

Being a Bentley, customers can go all out when it comes to customisation. Bentley offers a full coachbuilding experience called Mulliner, which uses only the finest materials for the interior. Speaking of the interior, Bentley's new Flying Spur offers 2 individual seats in the rear. The infotainment system screen neatly rotates out of sight and offers a minimalistic experience. 

Customers deliveries of the new Bentley Flying Spur will start in 2020.
