Bentley Flying Spur


Bentley presents the new version of the Flying Spur luxury sedan, the four door version of  the acclaimed Continental GT.

Powering the new Flying Spur is Bentley’s well known 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, coupled to a ZF eight-speed transmission. Developing 625 hp at 6000 rpm and 800 Nm of torque from 2000 rpm, the new Flying Spur features more power than any other Bentley four-door in history. A 14 per cent improvement in the power-to-weight ratio over the outgoing model delivers a 0-100 km/h time of 4.6 seconds and a top-speed of 322 km/h. In the modern Bentley tradition, power is delivered to the road via all-wheel drive with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split.

Bentley’s styling team has developed a design for the new Flying Spur that combines traditional Bentley styling cues with a sporting stance and contemporary details. Sharp feature lines complement muscular rear haunches, while LED day-time running lights, dipped headlights and taillights characterise the front and rear profiles. The interior designers have created a luxurious, spacious cabin that dresses advanced acoustic and electronic technologies in the traditional hand-crafted leather hides and wood veneers that one expects from the british luxury brand.


The Flying Spur takes a big leap forward in terms of modern, connected technologies. Central infotainment is controlled through a high resolution 8” touch-screen interface, complete with Bentley’s advanced satellite navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity, while infotainment features can be controlled by voice activation. An eight-channel, eight-speaker audio system featuring Balanced Mode Radiator technology for optimum sound clarity and frequency range can play music from an on-board hard drive, CDs, DVDs, SD cards and via an iPod. Rear seat passengers have access to an extensive array of infotainment technology. A new Touch Screen Remote, deployed from a housing in the rear console at the touch of a button, allows passengers to control a variety of different systems. From climate controls and seat heating and ventilation through to the satellite navigation and multimedia systems, the TSR means passengers can interface with the car from the comfort of their seat. The new Multi-Media Specification adds the Bentley Connectivity Unit (BCU) which allows portable devices, laptops and tablet computers to connect to the internet through the car’s own Wi-Fi hotspot with an active SIM and includes 64 GB of internal storage capacity. Two 10” LCD screens are installed to the backs of the front seats, while top-loading multimedia players sit in pockets fitted beneath, allowing the user to load and enjoy video, photo and music content from DVDs, SD cards, USB devices including iPods and iPads, and HDMI devices.

Each rear passenger can view separate content, or stream media from the BCU. A USB charging port keeps batteries fresh, and wired headphone ports complete the connections, allowing music and internet radio to be played directly through the BCU. Bentley wireless headphones complete the specification for the ultimate in rear-seat infotainment.

Exterior dimensions of this connected vessel are 5295mm in length for 1976mm in width (2208 with side mirrors) and 1488mm in height. New 19″ rims are standard fitment, with a choice of 20″ et 21″ wheels as options.
