Bentley released the original version of the Flying Spur in 2006. Back then marque enthusiasts marvelled at its handsomeness, W12 formation engine and hushed ambience, but also its remarkable 195mph top speed. Now there’s even more reason to be excited as the British engineers in Crewe reveal an all new Flying Spur sedan.
The twin-turbo engine remains the heart of the car, but almost everything else is redesigned. You notice that immediately in the lower, more sculptural profile that, doubtless, would interest Henry Moore’s ghost. Almost all the 600 components in the cabin are brand new.
This new saloon signals a step-change in the scope of the absolute personalisation offered by Bentley that’s possible. Naim Audio’s input here is an extension of our partnership with this British engineering icon. The Naim Audio for Bentley premium audio system becomes the ultimate upgrade for listening exhilaration inside the Flying Spur.
Actually, the car’s very structure has enhanced the system. It’s more rigid but the computer-controlled selectable air suspension is more cosseting than the previous marque. Fastidious aerodynamic and sealing attention has cut noise. The doors have fewer parts, for extra refinement. There are underfloor acoustic panels and insulation, acoustic glazing. What’s more – even the wheels and tyres of the New Flying Spur have been selected with the awareness of a unique audio experience in mind.
