Bentley Flying Spur REVIEW IN CANADA
If you’re in the market for a luxury car, then you’re probably familiar with Bentley and its lavish Flying Spur model. With its sleek design, roomy interior, powerful engine, and impressive attention to detail, the Flying Spur has earned its place as one of the most luxurious cars on the road today—and this review will tell you everything you need to know about it!
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
The new Bentley Flying Spur has a 2.9 liter twin-turbocharged engine capable of producing 536 hp with 553 lb-ft of torque at its disposal. In 2020, this sleek beauty added a 4 liter v8 Twin Turbo Engine that produces 550 hp and 770Nm of maximum power to it’s lineup as well, reducing weight by 100 kgs in comparison to its predecessor as well as other perks such as sharper steering response and smoother driving dynamics.
The gearbox is automatic with 8 speed dual clutch transmission; it ensures that the power reaches the ground smoothly yet precisely. It’s the first time a sedan from this brand has made use of this type of gearbox – letting go of torque converters which are usually found in these types of cars.
Despite being larger than the average family car, this Bentley Flying Spur has a four-wheel drive system with an intelligent traction control function capable of automatically adjusting how much power goes to each wheel depending on road conditions or how aggressive you want your driving style to be. With 333km/h top speed and acceleration reaching up to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, it’s no wonder that this sports luxury sedan is known for its refined handling and high performance capabilities.
In its present form, the Bentley Flying Spur has a length of 5.32 meters while also growing by 13 centimeters in comparison to its predecessor model. This difference is noteworthy because it provides an added degree of convenience for people sitting in the back seats.
Its sleek, powerful shape is reminiscent of the Bentley Continental GT. With this car also comes a graceful front with wide headlights and high-tech LED lights. As you approach from the side, you’ll notice curves at its sloping beltline too.
The cabin of the Bentley Flying Spur blends traditional materials with state-of-the-art technology. The large 12.3″ display and 10.1″ infotainment system, both combined with textured leather, natural wood, marquetry and beautiful finishing touches, reflect this hybrid design philosophy perfectly.
Bentley Flying Spur VERDICT
