Bentley has released its latest luxury sedan: the third-generation Flying Spur.
The British carmaker claims the Flying Spur is set to take the mantle as its flagship vehicle following the end of its Mulsanne line of limousines this year.
A unique combination of breathtaking performance, contemporary design, and intuitive technology, it definitely delivers an enriching experience for both drivers and even those who prefer to be driven.
Like its predecessors, the Flying Spur has a graceful yet commanding form with intricate detailing and sharp design lines that draw one’s eye to the car’s muscular profile.
From the gloss-black radiator matrix grille with bright chrome vertical lines to the marque’s latest generation cut-crystal effect LED matrix headlamps as well as new wrap-around rear lamps that incorporate Bentley’s ‘B’ motifs, there are plenty of new exciting and sophisticated details to be found.
Adding to that, the stylish 21 and 22-inch wheel designs feature prominently to enhance the Flying Spur’s personality and prowess.
Follow the chrome bonnet strip and you will find a striking new Flying B mascot, that has been redesigned to automatically rise up whenever the car is unlocked and stowed vice versa. Crafted from stainless steel and hand-polished it also features illuminating wings.
The interior cabin is unmistakably Bentley as it utilises both natural and authentic materials that are complemented by design lines that flow from the new wing-theme fascia that connects the front and rear passenger areas.
Enjoy a tranquil and relaxing environment that feels spacious in the rear as it is at the front. Among the new features is a floating centre console allows passengers in the rear to interact with the car’s infotainment system. There is also a new glass-to-glass panoramic sunroof that lets natural light in when you need it.
Apart from that, those seated at the back will find other comforts and conveniences with wireless charging and twin USB ports in the front stowage area.
The Flying Spur’s new Central Display in front features a 12.3-inch HD touchscreen that intuitive puts its infotainment system, navigation, environmental controls within easy reach. With a choice to navigate via the buttons, knobs or with your fingers you can switch to a split-screen view so you can change the music without losing sight of the navigation.
Adding to that, the Integrated My Bentley Connected Car technology supports Apple CarPlay.
That’s not all there is the optional Bentley Rotating Display that allows the driver to easily change the beautifully veneered fascia to an advanced digital system mentioned above.
Features aside, when it comes down to performance the new Flying Spur boasts a formidable 6.0 litre W12 engine that combines power, torque and effortless acceleration, making this an agile vehicle despite its size.
With a top speed of 333km/h and the ability to go from 0 -100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, the Flying Spur offers an exhilarating drive while maintaining great comfort.
Bentley said customers may choose from a myriad of customisation options to personalise their Flying Spur to their exact specifications. This includes the ability to choose the colour of the car’s exterior and interiors, materials used and even right down to the colour of the seatbelts.
According to Bentley, it has already started accepting pre-orders for the new Flying Spur and it carries a price tag of MYR840,000 before duties and taxes.
