The all-new third-generation Bentley Flying Spur is out and about for you to tart it up over at the configurator
It’s nice for Bentley to have someone to lean on especially when that someone is Porsche. Since they all fall under the overseers at Volkswagen along with Audi, Skoda, Seat, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Ducati, MAN, Scania, the Hoover Dam, Santa Claus, weekends, and the Baltic Sea, everyone gets to share nicely or else it doesn’t get its strudel.
So when Bentley needed an all-new flagship, they turned to Porsche for the Panamera’s platform and built a Megamera. Except they didn’t call it that. And so the third-generation Bentley Flying Spur, the ultimate four-door Grand Tourer this side of a more expensive Rolls-Royce.
Now the question is what do you give a car that literally has everything, including a W12 engine that delivers 626 horsepower and 900Nm of torque. You give it a retractable Flying B mascot and a 130mm longer wheelbase, because at this end of the market size is everything. Have you seen BMW’s new grilles?
This is also why the Flying Spur weighs as much as a Land Cruiser, what with all the crystal LEDs weighing it down. No matter, because even with more options than a Chinese menu it does zero to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds and keeps on accelerating to 333km/h.
While those numbers make it sound like a super-saloon, which it is, the Flying Spur is actually all about comfort with a dynamic air suspension and all-wheel steering in a Bentley for the first time. Crewe gives you all the choice you’d want when speccing a Flying Spur, including seven sets of wheels, dual veneer trim, 15 hide colours, and plenty more.
