2020 Bentley Flying Spur is sporty and stately in a single package
Bentley on Tuesday took the covers off the redesigned 2020 Flying Spur.
The new full-size sedan ups the luxury compared to its predecessor, but where it really stands out is in dynamic performance. Whereas the previous Flying Spur featured a platform shared with the Volkswagen Phaeton, the latest generation rides on one developed by Porsche for the Panamera. The result is a truly unique vehicle combining sport sedan performance with ultra-luxury comfort.
The exterior of the 2020 Flying Spur has clearly taken on an evolutionary look, though the design stands out thanks to a sportier stance and a curvier, more muscular body. One again a long hood and sweeping roofline leads the eye to a chunky C-pillar, though now the front wheels are pushed further forward, helping to stretch the wheelbase about five inches compared to the outgoing model. New to Flying Spur is a delightful Flying B hood ornament that raises at the front of the hood.Naturally, there are loads of options to choose from, and that's before you even opt for some of the Mulliner division's personalization options. Just the audio alone has three options, ranging from a base system with 10 speakers and 650 Watts and topping out with a Naim system with 19 speakers and 2,200 Watts.
The 2020 Flying Spur will launch with Bentley’s familiar 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W-12, which delivers a peak 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive system, the engine will hustle the big sedan from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and to a top speed of 207 mph. V-8 and plug-in hybrid options should be announced at a later date.
