The redesigned luxury performance sedan is Bentley’s most powerful four-door model yet, featuring the automaker’s 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine with 616 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. It boasts a 14 percent improvement in its power-to-weight ratio compared to its predecessor and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds while sporting a top speed of 200 mph.

The redesign features a lower, wider appearance accented by sharp lines and gently curvaceous surfaces. Overall, the lower roof line helps contribute to the Flying Spur’s more aggressive stance. While the front end of the redesigned Flying Spur is unmistakably Bentley, the rear end is certainly more modern with horizontal single-ellipse LED taillights and a longer, lower trunk.
Along with its contemporary cabin design and traditional hand-crafted luxury that has made the British automaker famous, the new Flying Spur will feature new-age connectivity and infotainment with its own Wi-Fi hotspot.
“Bentley’s new Flying Spur is the ultimate luxury performance sedan,” said Bentley Chairman and Chief Executive, Dr Wolfgang Schreiber. “Our engineers have worked tirelessly to ensure that the Flying Spur is the perfect combination of power, comfort, refinement and hand-crafted quality. Fitted with the very latest technology, the new Flying Spur is equipped both for business and relaxation whilst remaining a car to enjoy from behind the wheel.”
