Bentley Flying Spur Enters Production
The Bentley Flying Spur was always a strange model in the luxury manufacturers line-up. It was a four-door sedan based on the Continental coupe with a strange design that was a bit strange to look at. The latest Flying Spur is completely different. Instead of borrowing the majority of its styling influence from the Continental, we can actually see a lot more of the Mulsanne, which is a absolutely great for the four-door sedan.
The 2020 Bentley Flying Spur makes use of a massive 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine that produces 467kW of power and 900Nm of torque. These are mega figures and this is only the base model. Like the Continental, the Flying Spur will also feature a high-performance ‘Speed’ model with an expected output of 522kW of power. We will have to wait a few months for that because Bentley is still developing it. Considering how important this model is to Bentley, it makes sense that they would invest hundreds and thousands of hours into making it perfect. Even the regular Flying Spur underwent over 1.6-million kilometres of development and testing to ensure it possessed the perfect balance of agility and limousine-style comfort.
The Flying Spur entered production almost four months after its global reveal and is being produced at Bentley's factory headquarters in Crewe, England. We can expect the Speed model to join the Flying Spur line-up in a few months followed by a plug-in hybrid model if the hybrid Bentley Bentayga is anything to go by.
