Bentley Motors revealed its advanced luxury Grand Touring sports sedan - the all-new 2020 Flying Spur. The new Flying Spur showcases Bentley's modern sculptural design language and yet gets muscular proportions. Then there are the cut-crystal effect LED matrix headlamps - now enhanced by chrome sleeves - and new wrap-around rear lamps with 'B' motifs. The new 22-inch wheel designs add to the stance of the car. Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, England, the latest generation of the Flying Spur brings together the world of luxury and advanced technology. It is based on an advanced aluminium and composite chassis and 48V electronic architecture.
It features electronic all-wheel steering for the first time on a Bentley, coupled with active all-wheel drive and Bentley Dynamic Ride, delivering phenomenal handling and ride. New three-chamber air springs allow a much greater range of suspension adjustment between limousine-style ride comfort and sporting levels of body control - a driving experience of extraordinary breadth and capability not seen in this segment before. A host of new Driver Assistance Systems are fitted to the new Flying Spur as standard, including Traffic Assist, City Assist and Blind Spot Warning, while the ground-breaking Bentley uses state-of-the-art, multi-material body construction.
Under the hood is a 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12, mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission for faster, smoother gear changes. This new TSI engine delivers 626 bhp and 900 Nm. 0-100 kmph takes just 3.8 seconds while top speed stands at 333 kmph. A 48-volt system controls an electronic actuator unit which manages the stiffness of the anti-roll bar, changing the stiffness on demand to combat cornering forces and keep the Flying Spur level.
The 2020 Bentley Flying Spur gets a 130mm longer wheelbase which means the new car is more spacious. It gets an HD digital instrument panel display, the rotating centre console with choice of 12.3 inch digital touchscreen. There are also stowage space as well as inductive wireless charging and two USB sockets for mobile phones.
