- The new Bentley Flying Spur gets more standard features than before
- It also gets the 'city' specification feature as a standard offering
- The Cambrian Grey paint shade on the 2022 Bentley Flying Spur is new
The 2022 Bentley Flying Spur has been upgraded with a few more features making it more opulent than it already was. So on the outside, Cambrian Grey is the new paint shade that expands the standard palette to 63 choices. The cabin is now offered with open-pore wood veneer trim in the colours Liquid Amber, Dark Burr Walnut, and Tamo Ash. They receive just a 0.1 mm thick coat of matte lacquer, rather than 0.5 mm for the existing High Gloss finish. And so, the open-pore wood retains the original texture that occupants can feel.

The city specification that was optional on the Flying Spur so far, well! That's a standard offering now on the 2022 Bentley Flying Spur. This gives the vehicle traffic sign recognition, hands-free boot operation, reverse traffic warning, top-view camera, welcome lighting, and automatic dimming mirrors among others. Then, the air ioniser is also now a standard offering and it emits negatively charged particles from the HVAC system to enhance air purity by creating a static charge around pollutants and make them stick to nearby surfaces. Bentley also updated the company's ESI Group to create digital mock-ups of the Flying Spur's interior in a bid to check noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels even better. They did perform virtual acoustic tests to figure out from where airborne sounds and tyre noise were filtering into the vehicle.
That said, mechanically the new Bentley Flying Spur remains pretty much the same and continues with two engine options on offer. First up, it's the 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 that churns out 617 bhp and 900 Nm of peak torque while being mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission. Then, it's the smaller 4.0-liter V8 engine that puts out 535 bhp and 770 Nm of peak torque. But the V8 also makes the Flying Spur about 100 kg lighter compared to the W12, adding up to its on-road prowess.

Bentley Motors has successfully manufactured the 40,000th unit of its popular luxury sports sedan, Bentley Flying Spur from its Crewe plant. Currently, in its third generation, the sedan was originally christened as the Continental Flying Spur, and later it was renamed as Flying Spur to distinguish the car from the Continental GT. Notably, all three generations of the Flying Spur have been designed, engineered, developed and manufactured at Bentley's home in Crewe. Each one of the 40,000 cars manufactured has spent more than 100 hours on the production line where a 250-strong team assemble each Flying Spur by hand.
