Bentley unveils 2020 Flying Spur

"The Continental, GTC and Flying Spur were developed in parallel". As per the company, the new vehicle represents a quantum leap in technology, performance and innovation over its predecessor.

Dealers will begin taking orders for the new Flying Spur this fall, with customer deliveries to begin early next year.

How similar is the Flying Spur to the Continental GT? .

Rain ensured the covers remained on the pitch and square and prevented the toss taking place as scheduled at 10:00 BST. Rain played spoilsport in Bristol , with the match being cancelled without even a single ball being bowled.

Sharing only its name with the previous generation Flying Spur, Bentley describes the new Grand Touring sedan as a "technological tour de force of innovation, connectivity, passenger comfort and driver excitement". The engine combines high-pressure and low-pressure fuel injection meant to maximise refinement, lower particulate emissions and optimise power and torque delivery. That allows for more exaggerated curves in the bodywork, along with crisper lines. Although the Limo tips the scale at around 2,435 kilograms it could still do the 0-100kmph dash in sportscar-shaming 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of a respectable 333kmph. At low speed, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction from the front wheels. Brake-based torque vectoring manages transverse power.

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 auto.

As promised, Bentley has finally lifted the veils of the third-generation Flying Spur which marks a series of technological upgrades for the nameplate. There will be, after all, 15 interior leather colors to choose from, but only a choice of three wheel designs, with 21-inch wheels standard and two Mulliner 22-inch wheel designs as options. When you press the engine start button, the veneered section in the middle of the dashboard rotates to reveal the 12.3-inch HD touchscreen shared with the Conti twins. Another press flips the shape again to land on a blank wood panel called "digital detox" that merely matches the veneers throughout the rest of the IP. "The air vent inside with the 5331 diamond [shapes] is another stand-out for me". But the most important ornament on the exterior is the newly-designed "Flying B" mascot adorning the nose. The inserts were inspired by Bentley's EXP 10 Speed 6 concept. The seats have optional "cathedral window quilting", a progression of the diamond quilting in the Continental that is meant to differentiate the two Bentleys. It rides on an all-new platform, with all-wheel drive as standard. The Flying Spur can adjust how loud it gets, therefore, depending on whether it's being driven in earnest or doing chauffeur duties.
