Bentley unveils new luxury Flying Spur

Bentley Motors has announced the details of its latest luxury sports sedan this week: the all-new Flying Spur.

Showcasing Bentley’s world-renowned innovative technologies and its attention to detail, the latest generation of Flying Spur pushes the boundaries of refinement, and is dubbed by the British manufacturer as “the finest super-luxury sports sedan ever built.”

Powered by a fearsome 6.0-litre, twin-turbo W12 and an eight-speed transmission, Flying Spur delivers 626bhp, with an impressive top speed of 207mph and a rapid 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds.

In a first for Bentley, the Flying Spur features electronic all-wheel steering, with new three-chamber air springs to allow for greater suspension adjustment between maximum comfort and a sports-style ride.

A suite of new Driver Assistance Systems are fitted to the new Flying Spur as standard: Traffic Assist, City Assist, and Blind Spot Warning.

The interior of the Flying Spur showcases Bentley’s reputation in its creation of a modern cabin of luxury and cutting-edge technology.

Sweeping horizontal veneer flows across the dashboard and into the doors, emphasising the spacious width of the cabin. An elegant, floating centre console houses a customisable 12.3-inch HD touchscreen and new Bentley ‘sculptural’ centre vents to the front and rear, housing stowage as well as inductive ‘wireless’ charging and two USB sockets for mobile phones.

“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.

The new Flying Spur is not yet available to order in EU28 countries, Israel, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey or Ukraine. It will be available to order in these markets later this year.

The price for the Flying Spur is expected to be around USD $240,000.
