Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Bentley’s new Flying Spur image

Bentley brought to Geneva the new Flying Spur, which makes its global debut in Switzerland.

The car’s muscular lines combine traditional Bentley styling cues with a sporting stance and contemporary details. The LED day-time running lights, dipped headlights and taillights characterise the front and rear profiles, while the interior designers have created a luxurious, spacious cabin dressed in exquisite hand-crafted leather hides and wood veneers.

As expected from a Bentley, the equipment is generous, with touch-screen infotainment, mobile connectivity including Wi-Fi, a Rear Seat Entertainment suite and a new bespoke hand-held Touch Screen Remote that allows rear-cabin occupants to control an extensive range of features from the comfort of their seat.

There’s also an eight-channel, eight-speaker audio system with Balanced Mode Radiators that provide high quality sound clarity, with the 1100W Naim for Bentley premium system available as an option.

The new Flying Spur is powered by Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, mated to a ZF eight-speed transmission. The engine develops 625 PS (616 bhp) and 800 Nm of torque, granting the new Flying Spur more power than any other Bentley four-door in history.

A 14 percent improvement in the power-to-weight ratio over the outgoing model delivers a stunning 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a top-speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). Power is delivered to the road via all-wheel drive with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split.
