PostHeaderIcon Bentley Just Teased the New Flying Spur and We’re Beyond Intrigued

Two years on from the unveiling of the third-generation Continental GT, Bentley is doing the groundwork before presenting to the world its majestically brutal Continental GT with two bonus doors, otherwise known as the Flying Spur. So far, the British manufacturer has only released a vague teaser image showing the car’s silhouette, and now we’re seeing its retractable hood ornament in detail. Will the Rolls-Royce Ghost be schooled by the new Bentley?

Bentley and Rolls-Royce used to be two birds of a feather merely a couple of decades ago but, since they ended up under different ownership in the early ’00s, Britain’s two top luxury brands have arguably taken two different routes. Bentley, soaking in all of its sporting credentials and a rich motorsport heritage, specialized in brisk sedans and sumptuous grand tourers while Rolls-Royce decided to stay true to its own heritage and kept putting out full-size sedans that abounded in lavish materials and state-of-the-art equipment while more recently tapping into the niche of limited-edition models. The two brands are, as such, quite different in their image now but the upcoming Flying Spur will still have to worry about whatever Rolls-Royce is doing with the Ghost because, as you know, a new Ghost is on the way as well.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur

Launched in 2005 and updated in 2013, the Bentley Flying Spur is getting a little long in the tooth. As a result, the British firm has already begun testing the next-generation model and we have already received the first spy shots of the upcoming luxury rig. Don’t let the Panamera body fool you, this is actually a Bentley mule, and the fact that Bentley is using a Porsche body is by no means surprising. As you may recall, the first Bentayga prototype hit the road with an Audi Q7 body. Also, keep in mind the Bentley, Porsche, and Audi are all under the same Volkswagen Group umbrella. If you’re still in doubt, our paparazzi have already checked the British plates with the DVLA, which revealed that the prototype is indeed registered as a Bentley.

Likely to break cover in late 2018 or early 2019, the next-generation Flying Spur will bring major improvements to the nameplate. Arguably the most imporant is the MSB-F platform, which already made its debut in the new Porsche Panamera. The redesign will also spawn a new styling language, a more luxurious interior, and give the sedan more powertrain options. Official data is virtually non-existent, but I gathered all existing rumors in a speculative review that should keep you covered until a Bentley-bodied prototype shows up in 2017. Make sure you stay tuned for details.

Updated 04/10/2019: Bentley has just unleashed its first teasers of the 2020 Bentley Flying Spur. Check them out in our teaser section below!

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid

The Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid is an upcoming plug-in hybrid version of the company’s full-size sedan. The four-door follows in the footsteps of the Bentayga Hybrid, Bentley’s first-ever electrified model, which was unveiled in 2018. The Flying Spur Hybrid is part of the third-generation model lineup that should debut by the end of 2019.

Spotted testing with a Porsche Panamera body in 2017, the Flying Spur began making appearances in its camouflaged production shell in 2018. Come 2019, and the sedan is slowly losing camo, but Bentley is also testing new versions. Our paparazzi caught a batch of Flying Spurs testing on public roads in April 2019, including a plug-in hybrid version. Let’s find out what we already know about it in the speculative review below.

PostHeaderIcon The New, 2019 Flying Spur Will Be the Last Non-Electrified Bentley

The Bentley Flying Spur has been in the market for more than a decade now. The luxury sedan is one of the most popular models from the Bentley stable and is expected to be revamped as a much more distinctive luxury saloon in 2019. However, this will be the last Bentley to be launched before the company completely reinvents its cars for the electrification era. Read on to know more.

Exterior


2019 Bentley Flying Spur - image 753740

While the Panamera mule provided no details as to how the next-generation Flying Spur will look like and the more recent test cars wore camouflage that resembled the outgoing model, that’s not to say we are clueless on its exterior design. Much like the current model, the upcoming sedan will be a four-door version of the Continental GT. And before you say that the Conti has yet to show itself in public without camouflage, we already know that the coupe will borrow numerous features from the EXP10 Speed 6 concept. And the latest spy shots confirm just that.

right
“Much like the current model, the upcoming sedan will be a four-door version of the Continental GT.”

That being said, I expect the Flying Spur to share most if its front fascia with the Continental GT. Notable features will include the quad headlamp layout with smaller lamps toward the sides, a lowered nose, and a wider grille placed lower into the fascia, as well as a sportier bumper with big side openings. A sculpted engine hood is also on the table, but with more subdued, elegant lines compared to the Continental GT.

Onto the side, the front fenders and doors will be identical for the most part, but most features will change toward the rear. Naturally, the Flying Spur will get a second pair of doors, a longer wheelbase, and redesigned rear fenders. The latter will continue to sport a muscular design, but this is where the sedan will stand out as a more graceful version of the Conti GT. The rear end is a complete mystery, but I expect Bentley to retain the rectangular taillight configuration, albeit in a longer and slimmer shape. The long decklid, raked D pillars, and imposing bumper should round off this area.

Rendering


2019 Bentley Flying Spur - image 718772

As mentioned above, we used many of the EXP10 Speed 6 concept’s features to design the next-generation Flying Spur. This is most visible up front, where the main headlamps flanking the grille are joined by smaller lights toward each corner. These are smaller than the ones seen on the outgoing model and now have their center sections covered, meaning they look like thin LED rings. The main grille retains the already traditional shape, but it now sits closer to the ground, thus lowering the nose for a sportier stance. Below, the Flying Spur should feature a three-piece grille configuration with two wing-like elements separating the cooling vents in the upper corners. The profile of the rendering is very similar to the current model, but we can see a revised fender vents, redesigned side windows, and more muscular rear haunches.

Interior


2018 Bentley Continental GT - image 728811

Note: Bentley Continental GT pictured here.

“Just like the Continental GT, the Flying Spur's interior will take cues from the EXP10 Speed 6 concept.”

Our paparazzi didn’t manage to get close enough to snap shots of the interior, but given the Panamera body, there a big chance that the cabin is also made of Porsche parts as of this writing. However, with the Continental GT’s interior having taken cues from the EXP10 Speed 6 concept, the sedan could go a similar way. If so, the Flying Spur will get a sporty yet elegant cockpit with a wide instrument cluster, a wrap-around dashboard that extends into the door panels, and maybe even the tall center console that separates the front seats in the coupe.

The GT’s new infotainment display should also find its way into the sedan. Called the Bentley Rotating Display, it’s a 12.3-inch touchscreen housed in a three-sided unit that revolves in the center stack. When the car is not in use, it appears to be no screen in the centre of the dashboard, with the wood veneer flowing uninterrupted across the dashboard. When the engine start button is pressed, however, the veneer in the center stack glides forward and rotates to reveal the configurable screen. The third side of the Rotating Display reveals three analogue dials displaying outside temperature, a compass, and chronometer.


2018 Bentley Continental GT - image 728813
“The sedan will get the Bentley Rotating Display, a 12.3-inch touchscreen housed in a three-sided unit that revolves in the center stack”

The new instrument cluster will be equally modern with two digital clocks with 3D LED lights that make the dials seem analogue and a big screen in the middle for high-resolution images and information.

We should find new veneers on the dashboard and center console too, including a dual-veneer. Most surfaces will be wrapped in fine leather with contrast stitching, Alcantara, and many other options from the Mulliner division. The 20-way adjustable seats should have heating, cooling, and massage function as standard. Apple CarPlay, real time traffic, and Private eCall for emergency services are just a few of the convenience features that Bentley will transfer from the Continental GT.

All told, no one will have a reason to complain about the car’s interior, whether they’re driving or resting in the back seat.

Drivetrain


2019 Bentley Flying Spur - image 692544
“The Flying Spur will share underpinnings, and possibly engines, with the Porsche Panamera”

The redesign should also bring a few changes under the hood, but given the new platform, these are mostly unknown as of this writing. Word has it the Flying Spur will share some engines with the Panamera, which makes sense given the Volkswagen Group’s current strategy. The most likely candidate for the Flying Spur is the revised 4.0-liter V-8 offered in the new-for-2018 Panamera Turbo.

The twin-turbo unit cranks out 550 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque and it could make it into the Bentley with minor changes. For reference, the current 4.0-liter V-8 pumps 521 horses and 502 pound-feet in the Flying Spur V8 S.
It’s not yet clear whether or not Bentley will get the 2.9-liter V-6, but if it does, it will generate around 450 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque in the base Flying Spur.

Now that Bentley has already launched its first-ever diesel model in the Bentayga lineup, the Flying Spur could also get an oil burner. Naturally, the sedan will share the 4.0-liter V-8 with the SUV, which currently benefits from 429 horses and 664 pound-feet.

“The W-12 engine will likely continue as an option, but the new 6.0-liter will generate in excess of 600 horsepower”

The W-12 engine will likely continue to be an option, but the current unit will be replaced by the redesigned engine that debuted in the Bentayga and then found its way into the new Continental GT. Also displacing six liters and using two turbochargers, the W-12 cranks out a massive 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque in the SUV, and 626 horses in the coupe. Any of these configurations should push the four-door from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds and toward a top speed in excess of 200 mph.

Finally, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Flying Spur also gets the Panamera’s hybrid drivetrain. The combo pairs a twin-turbo, 2.9-liter V-6, an electric motor, and a lithium-ion battery and delivers 462 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of twist. It can also travel for 31 miles on electric power alone. This drivetrain will most likely find its way in the Bentayga first, and that’s when we will find out more about the configuration Bentley is planning to use.

Prices

With the production model set to arrive in late 2018 or early 2019, it’s definitely way too early to talk about prices. However, it’s safe to assume that the base model will cost in excess of $200,000, while the range-topping W12 version will fetch at least $250,000 before options.

Competition

Rolls-Royce Ghost


2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II - image 544479

The Ghost is the Flying Spur’s traditional rival as it can offer the same amount of opulence and performance. On the market for six years as of 2016 and updated in 2014, the Ghost will most likely receive a complete redesign by 2019. The next-gen Phantom is already scheduled to arrive in 2018, so it’s safe to assume that a new Ghost will follow suit. Unlike the Flying Spur, the current Ghost is a V-12 machine only, as both the standard and V-Specification models are powered by a twin-turbo 6.6-liter V-12. The first version comes with 562 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque, while the latter benefits from 592 horses. The next-gen model should come with a revised V-12, but a hybrid or even an all-electric version are on the table too. Likely to retail from around $300,000, the Ghost will be a much more expensive proposition, especially when compared with the less powerful, non-W-12 Flying Spurs.

Mercedes-Maybach S-Class


2016 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class - image 599556

Discontinued in 2012, the Maybach brand returned in in 2015 as Mercedes-Maybach. Now selling mildly revised S-Class models equipped with far more luxurious interiors, Maybach has two vehicles on offer. The base model is called S500 and uses a 4.7-liter V-8 rated at 455 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The second, more expensive version, goes by the name S600 and uses the larger, 6.0-liter V-12 with 530 horses and 612 pound-feet of twist. While the exterior of the Mercedes-Maybach is identical to the S-Class, the cabin is a different story, sporting the most luxurious features Mercedes-Benz has to offer. The wheelbase is also longer, providing more room for rear-seat passengers. It’s also more affordable too, with the range-topping S600 starting from $189,350 in the U.S. However, Maybach offers plenty of options to take that sticker beyond $300,000.

Conclusion


2019 Bentley Flying Spur - image 692540

It’s definitely too early to draw a conclusion here, but based on what Bentley did with the Bentayga, the next-generation Flying Spur should bring improvements in just about every department. The sedan should get more power, more luxury, some of the most ludicrous and expensive options on the market, and a sportier design. More importantly, it will also become more fuel efficient with either a diesel or hybrid drivetrain. Or both.

  • Leave it
    • * Still an expensive choice
    • * Still a couple of years away

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition

Fresh off of announcing the Mulliner’s new Design Series for the Flying Spur, Bentley is back at it again with another special edition version of the luxury sedan. It’s called the Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition and it’s essentially a dressed-up version of the sedan that features plenty of dark tints lights and black gloss brightware, among other things.

It’s become a little bit of a tradition for Bentley to offer these special edition models in quick succession, so it’s not a surprise that we’re seeing another so soon after the British automaker released a previous special edition Flying Spur with Mulliner heavily involved in it. No one’s going to confuse these new Black Edition Flying Spurs for Mulliner’s Design Series, and I suppose that’s a good thing. With so many SEs coming out of Crewe these days, being different is a good thing, even if it means getting fewer digs than others. That’s essentially what the Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition is. There’s not much to go by compared to what Bentley has come up with in past months, but there are still enough new features to at least justify it getting the SE label. It’s still a Flying Spur, too, so even if it’s lacking in distinctive upgrades relative to our expectations, there’s still more than enough opulence to go around for everybody.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition-0

It is usually the top dog W12 version of the Bentley Flying Spur that gets all the special treatments, but this time they decided to show some love to the V8 S and came up with a Black Edition model which makes the luxury sedan look and feel a lot cooler. It does so through the addition a host of interior and exterior appointments. 

As the name Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition clearly suggests, the main highlights of the treatment have to do with black stuff. There are black gloss brightware, dark tint lights, gloss black window surrounds and door mirrors, dark tint and black bezels, and new wheels, plus three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel, stitched leather hide that frame the four seats’ centre panels, contrast stitching throughout, and Piano Black veneer inside the cabin. You are not, however, limited to black for the choice of exterior color.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition-00

Should these fail to satisfy your need for exclusivity, Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition can also be ordered with a number of Mulliner options, namely diamond-quilted hides in the seat and door panels, with contrast stitching for a more contemporary visual tone, and two 21” five-spoke Directional Sports wheel finishes in gloss black or dark tint. The car is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine that delivers 528 PS (521 bhp) and 680 Nm (502 lb. ft.), which propels the Flying Spur to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds), and on to a top speed of 306 km/h (190 mph).

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur Design Series by Mulliner

Ah, Bentley. The purveyor of all things automotive luxury is at it again. As if coming out with a treasure trove of special-edition and one-off spectacles isn’t enough, the British luxury brand is sprucing up the Flying Spur with a new Design Series line meant to give the luxury sedan the proper limited-edition send-off ahead of the next-generation model’s arrival. Needless to say, anything Bentley does with the words “special edition” on it comes with the involvement of Mulliner, the automaker’s very own personalization department that also happens to be responsible for some of the most incredible Bentleys we’ve seen in a while.

The new Flying Spur Design Series certainly fits in with its exclusive-packed peers, thanks in large part to an extensive list of cosmetic add-ons that injects some life back to the current-generation Flying Spur before the car makes its proper send-off. And since Mulliner is in charge of putting the Flying Spur Design Series together, it goes without saying that customers should prepare for something out of the ordinary. Exclusive colors? Yes. New wheels? Right on that too. How about a carbon-fiber and titanium cabin? On that last bit, let’s just say that we’ll leave it to Bentley and Mulliner to make that happen.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur Limited Edition By Mulliner

Bentley’s Mulliner personalization division is capable of some luscious creations. Just last week, it presented the Bamford X Bentley Mulliner Mulsanne Speed. That one featured a black-on-black color scheme that was created through a process called Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD). It’s a complicated process that flies over my head; all I know is that Mulliner is capable of such a thing. I mention all of this because Mulliner’s back with a new creation, only this time, it’s for the Bentley Flying Spur.

At this point, refinements like a Peacock Blue paint finish and British Elm in the interior are what you can expect from Mulliner. They’re quintessentially British by nature, and so is the Flying Spur, which makes this particular personalization program a treat to the senses for those who prefer going over-the-top with their luxury amenities.

I don’t think it necessary to remind everyone of the kind of class and status surrounding the Bentley Flying Spur. It’s a sedan that’s made to ooze those qualities on its own. Then again, it doesn’t hurt that a personalization program like Mulliner is a skip and a knock away from rolling up its sleeves and working on the well-crafted additions that a particular customer may want from there Flying Spurs.

The results certainly speak for themselves, and in this particular instance, the final product is a testament to the quality of the Bentley Flying Spur and the all-around ingenuity of Bentley’s go-to personalization program.

Launched in 2005 and updated in 2013, the Bentley Flying Spur is getting a little long in the tooth. As a result, the British firm has already begun testing the next-generation model and we have already received the first spy shots of the upcoming luxury rig.

Don’t let the Panamera body fool you, this is actually a Bentley mule, and the fact that Bentley is using a Porsche body is by no means surprising. As you may recall, the first Bentayga prototype hit the road with an Audi Q7 body. Also, keep in mind the Bentley, Porsche, and Audi are all under the same Volkswagen Group umbrella. If you’re still in doubt, our paparazzi have already checked the British plates with the DVLA, which revealed that the prototype is indeed registered as a Bentley.

PostHeaderIcon Geneva 2016: Mansory Bentley Flying Spur

Mansory Bentley Flying Spur-0

One of the latest ultra-luxury saloons to get the Mansory treatment is the latest Bentley Flying Spur. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the super exclusive Mansory Bentley Flying Spur features a bespoke styling treatment, custom interior and a meaty power upgrade.

The Mansory Bentley Flying Spur presented at Geneva comes with a two-tone white and gold, complemented with carbon detailing and a set of 22 inch light alloy wheels, also in gold. As you know, each Mansory car is bespoke to the individual. So if you don’t have to go with this showoff-y gold. There are endless possibilities with Mansory when it comes styling.

What you should get for your Mansory Bentley Flying Spur without arguing is the performance kit they offer for the W12 engine. Adding 120 PS to the standard output, the program results in a total of 745 horsepower and 950 Newton metres of torque. That oomph translates into a 0-100 km/h time of 4.0 seconds. The car goes past 200 km/h 10 seconds later.

This Flying Spur also features a custom interior with two-tone white and brown leather and embossed golden trims. Again, the choice here is yours. You can tailor every last detail of the cabin to your liking.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S-0

We don’t know for sure, but there must have been people writing to Bentley complaining they find the W12 Flying Spur a bit too powerful but the V8 version not powerful enough. So they went ahead and made the new Bentley Flying Spur V8 S which slots between the two, packing 528 horsepower.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 S gets the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 you find in the base model in the range, but here it is tuned to generate 21 extra horsepower. Not sure what that would accomplish in the real world, but in the lab they found it results in a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.6seconds) – 0.3 seconds faster than the regular model – and a top speed of 306 km/h (190 mph).

But a little bit of extra oomph is not all you get with the Spur S. The car also comes with a number of sporting styling cue for a more aggressive look. The main features include black radiator grille, rear diffuser and a unique grille insert. You also get 20” open-spoke painted wheels and a range of Mulliner options such as 21” black wheels, dark-tint lights (front and rear), black gloss exterior mirror covers. Piano-black wood veneers and a three-spoke sports steering wheel are main highlights of the interior.

Furthermore, Bentley Flying Spur V8 S boasts new responsive suspension tuning and re-calibrated Continuous Damping Control (CDC) and Electronic Stability Control tuned for sporty handling without compromising ride comfort.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur Gets New Mulliner Options

Bentley Flying Spur Mulliner-0

Bentley’s exclusive department, Mulliner, announced the launch of a series of bespoke new options for the magnificent Bentley Flying Spur. The list includes many cool things, from new styling features, to new comfort and convenience options inside the cabin.

The main highlights of new Mulliner options for Bentley Flying Spur include a refrigerated bottle cooler between the rear seats, painted veneers, Mulliner quilted leather, sterling silver atomisers and hide-trimmed stowage boxes. It some of these sound like overindulgent and unnecessary – like the hide-trimmed boxes, for instance – well, that’s Mulliner is all about: excess.

The refrigerated bottle cooler is a nice addition though, and an option all cars should have. Of course in Bentley Flying Spur the refrigerator comes with storage for a champagne bottle in a canted position, a bottle stopper and two bespoke champagne flutes, all secreted behind frosted glass with bright chrome detailing. The atomisers used to spray a fine mist of water or perfume is another cool feature and a work of art unto their own. But we just can’t see the significance of those hand-crafted stowage compartment.

Geoff Dowding, Director of Mulliner explains “Mulliner offers customer the opportunity to personalise their car over and above the one million plus combinations already available to them. Creating bespoke features is about understanding our customer needs and requirements and the Flying Spur is a perfect outlet for us to interpret their ideas.”

It’s kind of odd that we don’t really hear too much about theFlying Spur. It seems like most of those in the eye of the public tend to hit the road in cars like the Bentley Continental GT or the Bentley Mulsanne. Be that as it may, the Flying Spur actually accounts for more than one-third of Bentley’s sales. Offered with either a 500-horsepower V-8 or a 616-horsepower W-12, the Flying Spur sets the standard for performance and luxury in one package.

One of the best things about buying the Flying Spur, just like any other vehicle from Bentley, is that purchasing one means you can select from a long list of luxurious options from the brand’s in-house coachbuilder. With Mulliner on the scene, it’s practically impossible not to create a Flying Spur that isn’t different from the rest. There are so many different options that there are literally more than a million possible combinations. That list is getting a little bigger now, as Bentley and Mulliner have just announced even more bespoke options for the Flying Spur.

You’ll have to keep reading to hear about all of the options, but my favorite on the list has to be the option of painted veneers. It is a first for the Flying Spur, and opens the door for an even more bespoke interior, allowing customers to choose from the entire range of exterior colors to compliment the interior. To get the unique look you see in the photos, each veneer is hand sanded, lacquered, and painted, before being polished with lamb’s wool to create that shiny, mirrored appearance. It’s a nice touch isn’t it?

Well, now that we’ve talked about those painted veneers, let’s dive into the other new features available for the Flying Spur by Mulliner.

Startech Bentley-IAA-0

After revealing their upgrade program for the Land Rover Discovery, Startech continues their love affair with British cars by engaging two hot Bentleys. Startech Bentley Continental GT and Flying Spur packages bow at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Starting with the Startech Bentley Continental GT – or the convertible to be more precise, but you can have this kit on the coupe as well – the package consists of a handsome carbon body kit that builds on the unique features of the 2016 modelyear Continental to make a sporty look. So you get a revised front bumper with a chin spoiler and grille surrounds, side skirts, and a sporty rear diffuser. A set of 22-inch wheels complete the look on the outside, while inside the car receives a lovely two-tone black and white leather upholstery garnished in places with green suede. It looks absolutely magnificent.

As for Startech Bentley Flying Spur, the body kit is a bit more subtle on the luxury saloon, featuring a prominent front spoiler and a rear diffuser, plus the inevitable 10Jx22 wheels. The tuner has paid more attention to the cabin with this model, fitting the big Spur with a superb white and brown leather upholstery package featuring contrast stitching and accents, special headlining and door cards, and an entertainment package with large headrest monitors complemented with folding tables at the back.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Flying Spur V8 Beluga Specification

The Flying Spur is the Bentley that you might sometimes forget exists. It’s not as popular with celebrities and those who love to be seen in the 2016 Bentley Continental GT, and neither is it as awe inspiring as the bigger luxo barge that is the 2016 Bentley Mulsanne Majestic. Yet the Flying Spur makes up nearly 40 percent of Bentley’s sales, which makes you wonder what would be possible if anyone paid any actual attention to it. So to spice the car up a bit, Bentley has introduced what it calls the “Beluga Specification,” which essentially boils down to a sport-themed appearance package for the sedan.

It’s a subtle upgrade, and it doesn’t come with any extra power. But it also isn’t especially expensive, at least as far as Bentley option packages go, and it’s a nice touch for the sedan. And more important than what you get with the Beluga Specification is the simple fact that the Flying Spur is an excellent luxury car that sometimes gets overlooked in favor of its sexier stablemates.

Bentley Flying Spur Beluga

Bentley announced the launch of a new trim level for the V8 version of the Flying Spur luxury saloon. Called Bentley Flying Spur Beluga, the new model comes with a host of cosmetic changes and upgraded equipment which, according to Bentley, give the “a more athletic stance and purposeful visual appeal.”

The main features of Bentley Flying Spur Beluga on the outside include exclusive 20” Black and Bright machined alloy wheels, a gloss black radiator matrix and a body-coloured lower grille bar. Inside the cabin you get piano black veneer, knurled gear shift paddles, contrast stitching to the luxurious seats and steering wheel as well as deep pile floor mats and boot carpet with contrasting leather binding.

But if that’s not enough luxury for you, the Beluga specification can also be ordered with Mulliner Driving trim, adding diamond quilted hides, a knurled gear lever, drilled alloy pedals and an indented hide headlining, as well as 21” 6-spoke Extrovert wheels.

As mentioned, Bentley Flying Spur Beluga is only available with the V8 engine, a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo unit with 500 horsepower which takes the big saloon from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds) and is frugal enough to cover a distance of 500 miles on one tank of fuel. Mind you, the Flying Spur has a pretty big tank. Pricing for the new Bentley will be announced closer to launch in autumn.

Magenta Bentley Flying Spur-0

There is no doubt that Bentley Flying Spur is a pretty unique car in its own right. Unlike its two-door brother, the Spur is bought mostly by connoisseurs only. Still, some people want to make it even more unique by choosing exclusive, and often weird, paint jobs like the two-tone purple and magenta on this car.

You would allow that this is a very classy paint work and one that suits the character of the Bentley Flying Spur rather well, even though it makes the car look like a chocolate and raspberry ice cream. But some may find it way over the top and therefore uncool. They enjoy looking at it, but do not want to be seen in it.

This particular Bentley Flying Spur is also special in terms of mechanicals as it is powered by the big, range-topping W12 engine with 625 PS (616 bhp) and 800 Nm of torque, mated to a  ZF eight-speed transmission that makes possible a 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a top-speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
