The all-new, third-generation Bentley Flying Spur rolls into our lives behind a retracting, brightened Flying B hood ornament. The grand tourer sedan brother or sister to the Continental GT also brings a new platform with a longer wheelbase, a new style, more innovation, and fluted leather and wood finery. About the only thing that doesn’t alter is horsepower, with the 6.0-liter W12 putting out the same 626 horse power as the high-level Flying Spur W 12 S trim of the second-generation sedan. Torque, however, makes a considerable jump from 605 to 664 pound-feet.

The very same MSB architecture that serves the Continental GT and the Porsche Panamera has been contacted for responsibility. A wheelbase stretched by 5.1 inches over the previous Flying Spur provides handling advantages and participates in particularly to the convenience of rear-seat guests.

Superformed aluminum panels develop sharper, smoother lines everywhere, starting with the sedan’s face. A much wider grille re-establishes percentages in advance, as well as a business appearance that goes its own method from the Continental Vertical vanes in the grille channel the 1957 Bentley S1 Continental Flying Spur, and sit just ahead of a gloss black matrix mesh. The lower grille is available in gloss black matrix too, but can be specced in intense chrome. The LED matrix headlamps have actually been fitted with chrome sleeves in order to twinkle even when the lights are off.

A prominent crease stresses the shoulders and haunches. Below that, the front fender vents adopt a bigger and more obvious “B” shape, the lower doors accentuated by a chrome strip running in between the wheel arches. Those arches will be filled with either the standard 21- inch wheels, or more brand-new 22- inch wheels on sedans optioned with Mulliner Spec. In back, wrap-around taillights handle the illuminated “B” graphic, and the license plate holder relocates to the lower bumper, leaving just the Bentley wings and the word “Bentley” to adorn the decklid.

The interior overhaul befits Bentley’s move into its 2nd century. A high-definition digital instrument binnacle sits behind the brand-new steering wheel. A 12.3- inch screen on the cockpit console deals with infotainment needs and carries out several techniques, one of which is a proximity sensor that primes the system for commands as a hand draws near. Another technique is that the screen is set into a three-sided, rotating shape. A press of a button turns the screen to reveal a panel with 3 analogue assesses – temperature, compass and chronometer. Another press turns the shape once again to arrive at a blank wood panel called “digital detox” that simply matches the veneers throughout the rest of the IP. A storage area at the base of the center console uses two USB ports and wireless charging.

A brand-new pattern of fluted leather seating comes requirement, with diamond-quilted and three-dimensional diamond quilted leather door inserts available on the alternatives sheet. Likewise on the extra-cost menu, a full-length panoramic glass roofing system with an inset sunroof. Alcantara blinds shield guests from a harsh sun, interior state of mind lighting in seven colors guards eyes from the ordinary end of the light spectrum.

Drivers will appreciate the benefits of safety systems like Traffic Assist, City Assist, blind area caution, night vision, a direct screen, top view cam, and self-parking abilities. Occupants will value any of the 3 stereo: 10- speaker, 650- watt audio; a 1,500- watt, 16- speaker Bang & Olufsen system with illuminated grilles and BeoSonic; or a Naim for Bentley 2,200- watt, 19- speaker system with Active Bass Transducers built into the front seats.

The evolved 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 mates to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. In addition to the bump in twist, the faster cog-swapper drops the 0-60 mph time from 4.2 seconds in the previous Flying Spur W12 S to 3.7 seconds. The 207- mph top speed is readily available in sixth gear, seventh and 8th equipments dedicated to saving fuel at saner speeds.

A host of driveline and suspension changes elevate the vibrant experience. The 48- volt electronic architecture differs anti-roll bar tightness to maintain a level mindset. New variable dampers hold 60 percent more air by volume, allowing a broader trip latitude in between luxury and stylish travelling. Electronic four-wheel steering turns the rear wheels to diminish the turning circle or quicken high-speed reflexes. Rather of the former set torque split, active four-wheel drive can send out all 664 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, as much as 31 percent of torque to the front axle in Sport mode, or approximately 53 percent of torque to the front axle when in Convenience and Bentley modes. Brake-based torque vectoring handles transverse power.

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