Live Photos: 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur at the Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 5, 2013

Bentley has declared the Bentley Flying Spur Facelift to be the most refined performance sedan in the world. The new Flying Spur features an athletic design that merges conventional Bentley styling cues with a sporting stance and modern details.

The muscular rear haunches are complemented by sharp feature lines. Meanwhile, the front and rear profiles are enhanced with LED day-time running lights, dipped headlights and taillights. From the interior designers, there’s a luxurious, spacious cabin that is equipped with advanced acoustic and electronic technologies in superb hand-crafted leather hides and wood veneers. Interacting with the outside world is made easy via touch-screen infotainment, mobile connectivity including Wi-Fi, a Rear Seat Entertainment suite and a new bespoke hand-held Touch Screen Remote.

This enables those in the rear cabin to control a wide variety of features from where they’re seated. Bentley equips the vehicle with an eight-channel, eight-speaker audio system with Balanced Mode Radiators provide high quality sound clarity, while the 1100W Naim for Bentley premium system is optional. The new Flying Spur is powered by Bentley’s famous 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, mated to a ZF eight-speed transmission.

The new Flying Spur has an output of 625 PS (616 bhp) and 800 Nm of torque, making it more powerful than any other four-door Bentley model. Its power-to-weight ratio is 14% better than the outgoing model, enabling it to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and to reach a top-speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). Power is sent to the wheel through all-wheel drive with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split for a solid, engaging drive in all types of road and weather situations.

Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive, said that the new Flying Spur builds on the global success of its predecessor by offering an unmatched combination of “effortless driveability, exquisite luxury and craftsmanship, sculpted design and state-of-the-art technology.”
