200+ MPH IN Style - Bentley Announces The New Flying Spur

Bentley hasn't announced pricing for the new Flying Spur, but the luxury sedan will be available for order beginning this fall. The rear wheels are steered in the opposite direction to the front wheels at low speeds, reducing the turning circle and making parking easier.

While the outgoing model and the new Continental have a matrix grille, the new Flying Spur adds veins to the grille to pay homage to WO Bentley's 8 Litre model from 1930.

Compared to its predecessor, the Flying Spur gets a longer wheelbase -the front wheels move forward by 130mm - but its overall proportions are similar to the outgoing vehicle.

The 2020 Bentley Flying Spur is here, and if you've been waiting for a handcrafted luxury sedan that just so happens to do 207 miles per hour, this will probably do the trick.

In India, Bentley now sells the Bentayga, the Mulsanne in standard and long-wheelbase forms, and the new Continental GT.

The weight distribution has also been played with, and the all-wheel-drive system can send power to whichever wheel needs the grip most.

The goal for the model - which follows the Bentley Bentayga and Continental GT in the sales rankings - is to offer sports saloon agility paired with limousine refinement so that it caters to both drivers and those being chauffeured. The three-chamber air springs-similar to those fitted to the Continental GTs-have 60 percent more capacity, allowing for finer degrees of adjustment, and the 48-voly anti-roll system uses electric motors to twist the rollbars against the cornering loads keeping the vehicle flat through turns. The Flying Spur can adjust how loud it gets, therefore, depending on whether it's being driven in earnest or doing chauffeur duties. A full-size glass panoramic sunroof is optional, and there are 17 colors to choose from - or you can go to the Mulliner team and specify something more unique. Crown Cut Walnut joins the wood veneer options, alongside seven others, and dual veneer can be specified too. As the name implies, the display sits in the center of the dashboard and can rotate at the touch of a button between a 12.3-inch high-resolution touch screen, a trio of analog gauges embedded into the wood veneers or nothing at all. Three audio systems are available, with the standard getting 10 speakers and 650 watts. Top of the range is a monster 2,200-watt Naim for Bentley system with 19 speakers and active bass transducers built into the front seats. Deliveries are expected to begin come early 2020.
