In the past few weeks, Bentley Motors announced the new generation of its luxury limousine Fyling Spur, and today the car is finally officially unveiled as the “most advanced luxury Grand Touring Sport Sedan”.
With the new Flying Spur Bentley will compete with cars such as the Rolls-Royce Ghost and the Mercedes-Maybach S600, with the design being modeled on the new Continental GT.
Among other things, the striking front grill, LED matrix headlights, B-motif lights and 21-inch wheels (optional and 22 inches) stand out.
Flying Spur is now 5304 mm long, and thanks to the 130 mm longer wheelbase (now 3185 mm), passengers will experience greater comfort.
Expectedly, Flying Spur under the hood has a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine with a 635 hp and 900 Nm of torque, combined with a 8-speed automatic double-clutch transmission.
This 2435 kg heavy car ranges from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and reaches a maximum of 333 km/h. Here is the fact that the brake system with 420 mm front discs is taken care of.
It should be noted that the new Flying Spur has all-wheel drive, all-wheel-drive control, and the Bentley Dynamic Ride support (for better control and more comfort).
For the interior, a HD digital instrument panel is provided, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, Head-up display, leather, wood, piano black elements, as well as a standard audio system of 650 watts and 10 speakers (the offer will also include Bang & Olufsen audio system of 1500W and 16 speakers, as well as Naim audio system of 2200 cards and 19 speakers).
There is also a panoramic glass roof, a Night Vision system, a blind spot detection system, and a Top View Camera with a bird’s eye view of the car.
New Flying Spur will be able to order from this Autumn (at a price of £)165,000 and up), while deliveries to customers start in early 2020.
Customers will normally be offered a palette of 17 colors, as well as a number of personalization options.
Some reports say that later we can expect a 4.0-liter V8 engine, as well as a sports Speed version. Also, the plug-in hybrid version is unofficially mentioned, with a drive system that combines a 2.9-liter V6 petrol engine and an electric motor.
