Bentley Flying Spur gets carbon fibre exterior tweaks

Flagship Bentley Flying Spur receives ‘Styling Specification’ sporty makeover

The current generation Bentley Flying Spur arrived in 2019, now in line with the firm’s centenary, Bentley has given the luxury saloon a sporty body kit and package of design tweaks dubbed the ‘Styling Specification’ to emphasise its performance credentials. 

In the world of luxury limousines, we rank the Bentley Flying Spur among the very best. Despite weighing almost 2,500kg and being able to carry four people in sublime comfort, the Flying Spur can reach a supercar-rivalling top speed of 207mph - making it the world’s fastest production saloon car.

As part of a new Styling Specification, the Bentley Flying Spur receives a handmade, high-gloss, carbon-fibre front splitter, side sills, a rear diffuser and a boot lid spoiler. The B-shaped side vents are also blacked out to promote the sporty look. The carbon-fibre weave is a 2x2 twill pattern and there are also 3D electroformed metallic badges front and rear. 

The three-chamber air suspension system fitted to the standard Flying Spur is unchanged so sumptuous ride comfort is assured, and in the engine bay it’s also business as usual.

That means the Flying Spur’s 626bhp, 900Nm 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine remains as was, so the 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds and 207mph top speed should remain the same. Active all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering still feature to complete the car’s dynamic-set-up. Pricing for the Styling Specification pack is yet to be announced, although expect it to extend the standard car some way beyond its basic £168,000 price tag.
