Flying Spur (2013-2018)

Launched in 2013, the second generation Flying Spur featured a more sporting look compared with its predecessor, with crisp lines and an eye-catching dynamic roofline. Over the life of this second generation model, Bentley launched a Flying Spur with the iconic W12 engine, followed by a Flying Spur V8, even faster V8 S and the pinnacle Flying Spur W12 S.  

All of the models within this second generation range featured spacious, modern hand-crafted cabins focussed on comfort and front and rear technology. For its time, the technology available in Flying Spur featured remarkable levels of control over luxurious features such as air conditiioning, massage and seat position and control over rear seat entertainment. 

The large boot offered on all Flying Spur second gernation models 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 combined seamlessly to create a car that was, and remains, far, far more than the sum of its many high quality parts. Which is what made the Flying Spur the finest of luxury sedans.
