New 2014 “Flying Spur” Luxury Sedan from Bentley
Bentley – Flying Spur
The new Bentley 2014 Flying Spur luxury sedan is scheduled to make its debut at the upcoming 2013 Geneva Auto Show on March 5th and once again in New York City in April.
Iconic Bentley offers the unique combination of fine craftsmanship, using skills that have been handed down through generations, alongside engineering expertise and cutting-edge technology.
The luxurious four-door sedan has a sportier, contemporary aesthetic look but still keeps Bentley’s signature attributes of bespoke craftsmanship and using only the finest materials.
As the successor to the prestigious Continental Flying Spur, Bentley’s new Flying Spur will have a top speed of 200mph and feature unparalleled performance and driveability with striking interiors.
For those on the go, the new Bentley offers mobile connectivity with its top-of-the-line Wi-Fi hotspot and mobile entertainment system. There’s an optional eight-channel, eight-speaker audio system with Balanced Mode Radiators that will provide high quality sound clarity, with the 1100W Naim® for Bentley premium system.
The Flying Spur utilizes Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, along with a ZF eight-speed transmission. Offering greater power than any other Bentley four-door in history, the new Flying Spur delivers a staggering 0-60 mph time of only 4.3 seconds, plus a top-speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
Providing all road and weather condition driving, the new Bentley features all-wheel drive with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split and a 14 per cent improvement in the power-to-weight ratio.
The Flying Spur will deliver 625 PS (616 bhp) at 6,000 rev/min and a staggering 800 Nm (580 lb ft) of torque from only 2000 rev/min.
You can purchase the Bentley Flying Spur in either four- or five-seat configurations. The luxury sedan features redesigned front and rear seats that are beautifully trimmed in natural premium-quality leather. The new custom seats are made with a softer, but more durable hide that’s unique to Bentley and available in twelve different colors.
The sleek exterior is “pure Bentley” with a lower and wider appearance with sharp lines and gently curvaceous surfaces. The new model has 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 front of this luxury sedan comes with a more upright chrome grille situated between the jewel-like LED pair of headlamps. The outside lamps are the larger of the two. Beneath the front grille, the lower intake is now full width with no vertical divisions, but instead with a chromed horizontal accent that completes the dramatic face of the new Flying Spur.
A new 19-inch Classic wheel is fitted exclusively to the new Flying Spur, either bright-painted or with a diamond turned finish. The new design consolidates a wider range of 20-inch five-spoke, 21-inch six-spoke and 21-inch ten-spoke wheels available as cost options.
The interior is just as stunning. The ultimate high-luxury Flying Spur sedan utilizes almost ten square metres of sustainably sourced natural wood per car, and features book-matched and mirror-polished veneer to the fascia panels, consoles, waistrails and picnic tables. The car’s roof lining and pillars are also trimmed in natural leather.
Bentley customers can specify an optional glass sunroof at no additional cost. Behind the central rear armrest, a nine-litre bottle cooler can be specified to keep drinks perfectly chilled. The interior designers also focused on improving interior stowage around the cabin, whilst including new electronic technologies discretely throughout the interior.
