Well, not since the badge first appeared on a four-door back in 1957. It was a component of Design Director Arthur Taylor Johnstone’s heraldic peak that gave the vehicle its name. The plate returned in 2005, enhancing a cantina adaptation of the Continental GT. It wasn’t a looker, yet Bentley has offered 37,000 of them to date. The difficulty was that the last-gen Bentley Flying Spur 2019, considerably after it was facelifted in 2013, was a vehicle for the determined, not the driver. It both looked and felt also nose substantial. Better to sit in the back.
Bentley Flying Spur 2019 Review
For the time being, all Bentley Flying Spur 2019 accompany an eight-speed programmed, all-wheel drive, and Bentley’s ground-breaking twin-turbocharged W-12 motor that makes 626 torque. A 542-hp V-8 motor will join the lineup later on. With the 12-chamber in the engine, Bentley claims the Flying Spur will jump to 60 mph in simply 3.7 seconds, a figure we anticipate will demonstrate moderate. When we find the opportunity to test ourselves, we’ll update this story with results. We had the option to take the new model for a concise drive close to Monaco, where we saw the Flying Spur as an unmistakably more athletic driver than we foresaw. Credit for that dexterity must go to the vehicle’s versatile suspension and back wheel-controlling framework.
Leaving that aside, doesn’t this sound a considerably more powerful vehicle? Back cow, increasingly back one-sided torque conveyance, the driver sat further in an extended wheelbase, in addition to 626bhp for a 0-62mph time of 3.8secs – quicker than any Merc S-Class, up to and including the S65. A top speed of 207mph. It even has dispatch control. The vast majority of these highlights (bar the back cow) are lifted from the current Continental GT roadster. Yet past that, you get the inclination Bentley has contemplated how and where to situate this vehicle.
