Bentley Flying Spur

Bentley planed a lot before deciding to reveal their latest achievement. Here we are talking about the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur. The other model revealed before its official unveiling is the Audi RS Q3. Bentley actually has prepared a redesigned version of the outgoing Continental Flying Spur and continues to relate to the Continental GT coupe and to the Continental GTC convertible models. Both of them have been updated now. The new 2014 model has received a complete exterior makeover and the front end with the quad headlamps and cross-hair chrome grille is the only thing reminding us of the original model. Actually even the lights now have a new shape and come with jewel-like LEDs. The 2014 model has a lowered roofline, sharper and more sculpted lines in the profile and the squatted rear end with rectangular tail light clusters. All these new features offer the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur and edgier and more dynamic look in comparison to the sedan version of the Continental. The model is also lighter in comparison to the first generation thanks to enhanced technology specification and stronger structure.

If this is not enough for you, the engineers have also revised the suspension which now has softer spring rates, anti-roll bars and lever bushes all-around. Along the springs, the model also features a revised damper electronic control and a new power steering system and a recalibrated multi-mode Electronic Stability Control system.

The model will receive power from a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine capable of generating 616 horsepower and 800 nm of torque. All this output is being transferred to the wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 200 mph. The new 2014 model will go on sale in the next few months.
