The Flying Spur Range

Whether you select the Flying Spur, Flying Spur W12 S, Flying Spur V8 S or Flying Spur V8, you will be taking the wheel of a thrilling performance car that remains every inch a luxury sedan – one that takes more than 130 hours to build. Which is why you’ll be able to appreciate countless thoughtful differences in craftsmanship, engineering, design and technology.

On the street, the Flying Spur projects a contemporary, sporting look with crisp lines and a dynamic roofline that is eye-catching yet always retains the appropriate level of sophistication. Inside, the modern interiors are handcrafted with darker veneer choices for a contemporary look. The cabin is spacious and extremely comfortable, with technology that can keep everyone in the car occupied for the length of any journey. And the large boot means you can easily pack golf clubs and other large luggage – something generally unheard of in cars capable of such exhilarating performance. All of these elements combine seamlessly to create a car that is far, far more than the sum of its many high quality parts. Which is what makes the Flying Spur the finest of luxury sedans.

Take a closer look at the Flying Spur range and you will discover a car that is built without compromise. Immerse yourself in every curve, every hand-stitched leather seam, every painstakingly lacquered and polished wood veneer, every finely-milled millimetre of knurling. It’s the sum total of all these details that make every feature an experience to savour.

Choose the Flying Spur and you will appreciate the difference with all of your senses.


Design

Flying_Spur_Front_White_Background full 1920x670.jpg

Exterior design

The Flying Spur offers a spectacular presence from every conceivable angle. It’s elegance shines through in the details – the sharply defined body shape, distinctive upright grille, large jewel headlamps, sharp fender wing vents and athletic design lines deliver an unmatched road presence.

Step back and its performance capabilities shine through the classic Bentley power line that runs from the front wheel arch down the car’s flank. Note the crisply defined bonnet crease and muscular rear haunches.

Flying_Spur_Side_White_Background profile with badge 1920x670.jpg

Power Lines

These powerful lines are formed using the most advanced production techniques. Superforming, for instance, uses a combination of superheating and air pressure, which combine to give sharper definition to curves and clearer silhouettes. We invest in this technology to give our cars full expression with no compromise.

A Head-Turning Experience
These seemingly small details add up to make the Flying Spur an instantly recognisable and powerful Bentley design statement and an extraordinary luxury sedan. Something you and people around you will appreciate whether cruising effortlessly at speed, or poised charismatically with the engine idling.

Interior Design

The Flying Spur’s handcrafted interior is a perfect balance of technology superbly and subtly showcased though matchless craftsmanship. Our expertise shines through in every detail.


Consummate Craftsmanship
A wide choice of veneer options, in different finishes, mirror-matched, with or without cross banding, affords the creation of an interior that reflects personal taste; whether it is for a traditional feel or an edgier, modern look. We have introduced a new contemporary veneer option: deep, subtle Dark Stained Madrona.

All the wood veneer used in the Flying Spur cabin is ethically sourced. Cured for 72 hours, it is then treated with five layers of clear lacquer to enhance its natural beauty. The result is a series of stunning, mirror-matched surfaces that flow seamlessly into the soft, tactile leather.

Flying_Spur_W12S_INT_Rear 1 1920x670.jpg

Handcrafted Hides

There are many options to complement the finish you choose - from seat sandwich-piping to contrast stitching and cross-stitching. You also have a choice of 17 main hide and 11 secondary hide colours that can be combined any way you desire within our 5 interior colour splits options.  

Flying Spur’s seats also feature a hand-stitched leather headliner: handcrafting surrounds the driver, and passengers in a dynamic yet sophisticated environment. The options are many; the combinations virtually limitless.

Authentic Details

Other details that catch the eye include the organ stop air-vent controls. These deliver the smooth and satisfyingly solid feel of authentic legacy instruments. Or the hand-stitched steering wheel that feels just right in your hands. It is these thoughtful trademark Bentley design touches that make the simplest operations, so rewarding: it is an interior designed to reward multiple senses.

Every detail is worthy of a moment of contemplation. And appreciation. Why not take a look at the different options with our Configurator?

Performance

W12S_Atlantis 1920x670.jpg

Engineering

The Flying Spur is built around the power of a 6.0 litre twin-turbocharged powerplant in the Flying Spur and Flying Spur W12 S. The Flying Spur V8 S and Flying Spur V8 share the same 4.0 litre V8 S twin-turbocharged engine. Both engines are developed to deliver effortless power and a tangible surge of acceleration, with remarkable road handling.


Effortless Control
But among the features that truly set the Flying Spur apart is its advanced all-wheel drive powertrain. A Torsen centre differential distributes power automatically between the front and rear axels – whichever is judged to have established greatest traction. A 40:60 rear-biased torque split helps to sharpen the handling, reducing understeer and providing more engagement with the road. It delivers an irresistible ride, whether you’re idling through traffic in town, or at full throttle on the open road.

It is also a car with a difference, one that offers highly responsive performance unheard of in the super-luxury saloon category – in fact, it’s more akin to a luxury sedan when you’re behind the wheel or relaxing in the passenger or rear seats.

Transmission and Suspension

Transmission
The seamless 8-speed transmission ensures the Flying Spur is always in the optimum gear. So it is responsive at low speeds and incredibly smooth, even through multiple gear changes. The car’s engine management system gives the driver total control of the effortless power that is always available, while also delivering a better range of gear choice. Shift into the transmission D Mode, or the even sportier S Mode, and you’ll notice the throttle response is immediately keener, even at low revs.

Suspension
A calibrated, sports focused suspension is combined with better roll control, sharper steering and an improved power to weight ratio – the result of continuous engineering refinement. It also features the all-wheel drive system, with 40:60 front to rear torque split, which is found at the heart of some of the world’s fastest Bentley luxury vehicles. This ensures the Flying Spur exits corners with ample purchase and an abundance of panache.

This incredible performance comes with no discernible loss of ride comfort thanks to the independent computer-controlled air suspension of the Flying Spur, which maximises impact absorption and isolation.

Effortless comfort

All these small details add up to an exciting drive, but with no loss of the legendary Flying Spur ride refinement and comfort. This is thanks to the independent computer-controlled air suspension, which maximises impact absorption and isolation. The 8-speed Quickshift transmission ensures that even through multiple gear changes, the ride remains incredibly smooth. As you press the accelerator down, there is no rush of power, just a perfect, even surge that makes overtaking a breeze or accelerating on a long stretch of open road a pure, uninterrupted pleasure.

Technology

FlyingSpur_W12_ModelFeatures_Technology6AA_1920x670.jpg

Infotainment system

It is all about technology that enhances every experience but never overpowers it. Everything has its place. Everything is designed to feel intuitive and simple – if you have to think too hard about it, something isn’t right. The demonstration of this can be found in the touch screen technology that sits within easy reach of the driver and front seat passenger.

Fingertip Control
Specially designed for Bentley, audio, telephone, navigation system and ride and comfort settings are all just a fingertip away. Rear passengers can switch between the front Infotainment system and the rear, as well as control volume via the Touch Screen Remote in the rear compartment. It’s a small detail but it means that everyone can be entertained and feel in control of their entertainment so that even the longest journeys fly by.

Rear Seat Entertainment

The Bentley rear seat entertainment (RSE) system is fully integrated for rear passengers. It brings together a suite of technology into the Flying Spur, including the WiFi hub, two pairs of wireless headphones, two 10"" LCD screens and 64GB of media storage with a range of inputs for digital devices.

Two LCD screens and two DVD players are conveniently mounted on the back of the front seats to entertain rear seat passengers. The media input includes two SD card slots, two USB inputs, and two HDMI cable inputs that make the choice of what your passengers choose to watch or listen to via the rear screens almost infinite.

WiFi on Demand
The optional 4G LTE WiFi hub gives you fast access to online music and video, cloud services and other internet-based content, all while you are on the move. Just add a SIM card to connect to the mobile network of your choice.

Touch Screen Remote
In the Flying Spur W12, control can be passed easily to the rear passengers through the integrated Touch Screen Remote (TSR). Located in the centre of the rear console it can be easily removed from its docking station for ease of use. It controls the rear window blind and rear climate conditions as well as the seat heating and ventilation (where fitted). You can also use it to adjust the volume of the front Infotainment system as well as switching between radio, media, and map modes.

The Flying Spur’s speed, vehicle trip information and current time is also displayed on the TSR, so everyone is always up to speed with progress, however long or short the drive. Digital content is also available if the optional in-car WiFi hub is selected.

FlyingSpur_W12_Bespoke_Hides_1920x670.jpg

Natural Leather

The hides used to upholster the Flying Spur’s opulent cabin are among the finest used in the automotive industry. The natural leather aroma, reminiscent of classic Bentley interiors, is the result of Bentley’s own tanning process, after which the hides are dyed in a range of over 17 colours, with bespoke hues available on request. For true connoisseurs, meanwhile, the new option of the soft natural finish of semi-aniline hides can be specified when commissioning your car. You can also choose a new Alcantara headliner.

Known for their natural beauty and softness, they are used in areas of the cabin that you and your passengers come into contact with, including the seats and door trim.

You can explore the myriad of possible combinations using our Configurator to create a Flying Spur that is uniquely yours.

The wheel designs available for the Flying Spur have been created with careful attention to the car’s sleek lines, to ensure they complement it perfectly.
