British Luxury car make Bentley has introduced the Flying Spur Blackline specification, an upgraded specification for the four-door sedan cum limousine.
The Bentley Flying Spur Grand Tourer in its third generation sees much of its exterior replaced by the Blackline trim. This helps to create an even more powerful road presence for the peerless Flying Spur.
The blackline spec includes the iconic Flying B mascot, radiator vanes, matrix grilles, side window surrounds, and lower door and rear bumper blades. The front and rear light bezels, door handles, wing vents and the exhaust outlets also receive the same distinguished, darkened treatment.
Standard fit on the Blackline specification are 21-inch five tri-spoke alloy wheels, with 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels optional. Customers can choose from among 17 standard exterior colors, as well as a further 13 extended range colors.
The Bentley Flying Spur
Created on an entirely new platform, the world’s most advanced luxury Grand Touring sports sedan blends a bold road presence with world leading interior quality and design, plus innovative customer-focussed technology.
Handcrafted in Crewe, the latest generation of Flying Spur pushes the existing boundaries of refinement and attention to detail.
Bentley’s design team totally reinvented the classic look of its predecessor. The new model boasts a stronger road presence courtesy of its sculpted, more muscular proportions. Unique, cut-crystal effect LED matrix headlamps and new 22-inch wheels are complemented by an exquisite, retractable Flying B mascot, available for the first time on the modern-day Flying Spur.
Inside the handcrafted cabin, newly designed, supremely comfortable seats are available in 15 hide colors, with Bentley’s ‘Wing’ theme stylized across the dashboard and lower fascia. The ‘floating’ center console houses a customizable 12.3-inch HD touchscreen and sculpted vents, as well as ‘wireless’ charging for smartphones.
The industry-first Bentley Rotating Display gives the driver the option of three different dashboard types, rotating at the push of a button. Three-dimensional, diamond quilted leather door inserts, exclusive new wood veneer options and subtle mood lighting blend together to offer the ultimate travelling environment.
With a totally new and advanced aluminium and composite chassis, the Flying Spur features Electronic all-wheel steering for the first time on a Bentley, coupled with Active All-wheel drive and Bentley Dynamic Ride, plus a host of new driver assistance systems.
Flying Spur’s ample power is supplied from an enhanced version of Bentley’s renowned 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine, combined with a dual-clutch eight speed transmission. The new TSI engine delivers 635 PS (626 bhp) and 900 Nm. This Grand Tourer goes 0 – 100 km/h in just under 4 seconds and gets up to a top speed of 333 km/h.
