Bentley has recently pulled the wraps off the 2014 Continental Flying Spur, ahead of its public debut scheduled for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, next month.
The 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur has started its public life with the help of some teaser videos and in the end the model has even leaked. Bentley has seen a chance of “saving” the luxurious model’s reputation and so a midnight unveil seemed logic. The 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur is getting some design lines from the Mulsanne and from the Continental GT and the luxurious sedan is lower and wider, getting ventilated front fencers, LED inflused headlights, upright grille and 19- to 21-inch alloy wheels.
The cabin of the model is basically brand new and just a few features are being carried over from the previous generation, like the armrests, the grab handles, the sun visors and some other small bits. Bentley says that the 2014 Continental Flying Spur has over 600 new components, and this includes the 8-inch display for the updated infotainment system, the leather seats or the wood trim. The model also has a 64 GB hard drive, two 1-inch displays, Wi-Fi connectivity and more.
By the time it will be presented in Geneva, the 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur will get a 6.0 liter W12 twin-turbo engine under its hood, which will produce 625 HP (460 kW) and 800 Nm of torque (590 lb-ft), mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This version will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.3 seconds before reaching a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). Fuel consumption stands at 14.7 L / 100 km (19.2 mpg UK / 15 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 343 g/km.
