    2020 Bentley Flying Spur

    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.

    Normally, I like Bentleys.

    This, not so much. Seems a bit "forced", or over-done.

    I hate all those "quilted" panels all over the interior.

    I agree about the quilting - never been a big fan of it to begin with, and this takes it overboard.

    Meh. It's nice, but for that amount of money, it better be.

    Why would I buy this over a Rolls-Royce?

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    Shrink the grill by 25% and it would look okay.

    Looks classy! I find a lot of the RR/Bentley's look Kardashian tacky, this looks elegant (though to much quilting)! Though I feel it is losing the British warmth and taking on German coldness.

    Continental rip off. Shame they copy Lincoln styling. Sad.

    Looks much better, the last one had a weird '96 impala vibe from the rear.

    Says Bentley to me. I wouldn't buy a Rolls over this. This is more handsome, more muscular, and more emotive than what Rolls has to offer, which is all pretty sterile.

    I like it, I like it a lot. I just can’t warm to a Bentley with an obviously German engine in it, not even when it’s this well done. I have the same problem with Rolls to be fair.

    How long before Lincoln copies this design too? Now that David Outhouse is gone their new lead designer has plenty to work with here.

    It has a face that a Mother Bentley could only love.
