The new Bentley Flying Spur is touted to be a car that offers an unrivalled blend of effortless driveability, exquisite luxury and craftsmanship. It is clear that this car is purely designed for those who have arrived in life and comes fitted with the latest technology one would expect from a car that boasts of such calibre.
The Flying Spur has literally been chiselled to perfection. Each line, every curve lends an appeal that leaves you mesmerised. A lower roof line, deeply sculpted panels, precise feature lines and a muscular rear haunch give the Flying Spur a more aggressive stance and a powerfully dynamic profile. The car is wider and lower than its predecessor which also lends to its sporty, muscular stance. Bentley has worked at ensuring that the vehicle possesses minimal shut lines, which work well to create a visually dynamic package.
The fine interiors boast of 600 new parts and have been made from the finest hand crafted materials. The contemporary interiors ensure that you are surrounded in an aura of luxury which is befitting to a high end luxury sedan of this class.
Available in both four and five seat configurations, the new seats use a softer yet more durable hide unique to Bentley and available in twelve different colours. The Flying Spur boasts of a central infotainment system that is controlled through a hi-res 8 inch touch screen interface. Rear seat passengers also get a touch screen remote that allows them to access various systems including climate control, seat heating, satellite navigation and other multimedia systems.
The car comes equipped with the Bentley Connectivity Unit, which allows devices such as phones, laptops and tablet computers to connect to the internet through the car’s own Wi-Fi hotspot!
The car was developed using lightweight acoustic under-floor panels which minimise road noise. It also comes fitted with acoustic glass that not only reduces the level of road noise in the cabin but has also been crafted with a better sealing system to achieve better aerodynamics. The new Flying Spur is a silent place to be where you can almost hear your own thoughts.
Powering the Flying Spur is Bentley’s most powerful engine, the 6.0 litre, twin turbocharged, 48 valve W12 that generates a stonking 625PS @ 6000rpm while delivering a staggering 800Nm of torque from 2000rpm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed quick shift automatic from ZF, which is capable of changing gears in under 200 milliseconds. This car can accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in just 4.6 seconds, and hit a top speed of 322 km/h making this the fastest Bentley four-door car ever produced and also earning it the title of being the fastest road-going luxury sedan in the world.
Fast, stylish and uber luxurious, the new Flying Spur takes the game a few notches higher in terms of products offered in this class of the car market. Its base price is Rs. 3.10 crore (ex-showroom New Delhi). However as the car is available through a bespoke program you can expect the actual cost to be much higher.
