Bentley’s New Flying Spur Features All-Wheel Steering

Bentley‘s Bentayga was the British car manufacturers latest offering until recently. Now they’re offering something all new with the third-generation Flying Spur, now with new configurations and a new design.

The new Bentley Flying Spur blends together design elements that are kin to the British limousines of old. Yet they maintain that features sculptural lines and a sleeker design than its bulky predecessor. The front of the new Flying Spur features a redesigned grille that is composed of chrome and a gloss black radiator. Clearly inspired by the S1 Continental Flying Spur. One notable feature is the retractable “Flying B” emblem that pops out of the hood similar to the “Spirit of Ecstasy” motif by Rolls Royce.

The new Bentley Flying Spur houses a twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine. That boasts 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque with a top speed of 207 mph. With the guts of a Continental GT  with its 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, this car has the power to spare.  The standout feature is the All-Wheel Steering, as this is the first Bently to include this feature. The car has improved handling during high speeds with a more secure turning radius. To finish things off, the new Bently Flying Spur features a sophisticated weight distribution system that shifts the power to whatever wheels need it the most.
