BENTLEY LAUNCHES THE DIFINITIVE FOUR-DOOR GRAND TOURER
The new Flying Spur’s confident form immediately commands attention. The gloss-black radiator matrix grille with new bright chrome vertical vanes sets the tone. Sharp, uninterrupted design lines - created using the largest superformed panel in the automotive world - draw the eye over the car’s graceful yet muscular new profile. By positioning the front wheels further forwards we have lifted the bonnet profile to create balanced proportions. The result is an exterior with a sophisticated and captivating look. The discovery of each new detail takes you on an inspiring journey. It is full of intuitive technology that keeps you connected to your car and the world around you. And it is designed to deliver an experience that is as refined and exhilarating for the passenger as it is for the driver.
The cabin of the new Flying Spur takes craftsmanship to new levels. Its contemporary design, with an emphasis on comfort and refinement, creates a stylish and relaxing environment for both the driver and those who prefer to be driven.
The harmonious interior features a new twin flute seat design – or if you opt for the Mulliner Driving Specification, you can select the new Lofted Diamond design that combines intricate stitching and embroidery. The Crown Cut Walnut veneer, with its horizontal straight-cut grain, contributes to a feeling of width and spaciousness. Sculpted vents in a polished or optional diamond-knurled finish add to the refined feel, while the panoramic glass sunroof lets light flood into the cabin.
An eight-speed dual-clutch transmission ensures rapid gearshifts and smooth acceleration, reaching maximum speed in sixth gear, so that seventh and eighth gears provide reduced fuel consumption when you’re cruising at speed. The new Flying Spur has the versatility to deliver engaging performance in all conditions. The torque-vectoring-by-brake system employs braking on the inside wheels when entering and exiting corners, working alongside Bentley Dynamic Ride, our 48V Electronic Active Roll Control system, to provide impressive agility at any speed. New Electronic All Wheel Steering reduces the car’s turning circle at low speeds for easier parking and manoeuvring, while out on the open road it increases the stability of the car, making overtaking and lane changes more assured. With the added reassurance of fast and effective braking, along with enhanced air suspension for elevated ride comfort and impressive dynamism, you can drive with confidence at higher speeds and with ease at low speeds.
My Bentley Connected Car* features, including Apple CarPlay®, Satellite maps and My car status, available through the My Bentley app, connect you seamlessly with your new Flying Spur and the world around you. Meanwhile intelligent safety systems such as Local hazard information and Private eCall give you complete confidence on the road.
Smart LED matrix headlamps automatically cut a hole in the full beam when another car approaches to avoid dazzling other drivers, allowing you to remain fully focused on the drive. An optional Night Vision camera uses infrared road monitoring to alert you to pedestrians, or large animals, up to 300 metres
The Digital Instrument Display includes sophisticated new graphics and adjustable views designed to enhance your driving experience while allowing you to concentrate on the road. The Central Display features a 12.3” HD touchscreen with refined touch sensitivity and the ability to switch to a split-screen view. So, for example, you can change the music without losing sight of the navigation.
The optional Mood Lighting Specification enables you to tune atmospheric interior lighting, including illuminated Bentley treadplates, to a range of colours and intensities to suit your mood. You can even store your favourite lighting configurations in the new Touch Screen Remote.
Included as standard, this precision-crafted screen is integrated into the rear centre console, but can be easily removed at the touch of a button, enabling passengers to sit back and personalise their journey in comfort. As well as adjusting the mood lighting, it allows rear passengers to access all the functions available through the Central Display, including heating, ventilation, sunroof, infotainment and navigation.
Part of the distinctive beauty of the new Flying Spur lies in making it yours. Starting with a palette of 17 standard colours, carefully chosen to complement the exterior style, there is the option to choose from the extended range, giving you a total of 30 colours.
Two exclusive new 21” ten twin spoke alloy wheels are available in a choice of finishes. The Mulliner Driving Specification also gives you the option of a 22” wheel, available in a choice of two finishes to match the balanced proportions and unique character of the new Flying Spur.
A chrome bonnet strip draws your eye to the addition of a striking new Flying B mascot - available as an option on the Flying Spur for the first time since the 1950s. Completely redesigned for our second century, it is crafted from stainless steel and hand-polished – and now features innovative illuminating wings.
The mascot automatically deploys when the car is unlocked, illuminating in synchronicity with the headlamps. When the Flying B is stowed, a stylish chromed Bentley badge covers the opening.
The new Flying Spur has been designed to provide a tranquil and relaxing environment that feels just as spacious in the rear as at the front.
A new glass-to-glass panoramic sunroof lets the light flood in, giving the space an uplifting feel. Our new twin flute seat design is as comfortable as it is elegant, with ventilation, massage and top tilt features that allow you to make everything exactly how you like it. We have even designed new wheels specifically to optimise ride comfort.
