The new Bentley Flying Spur get its inspiration from the 6.0 litre W12 engine that lies at the heart of the car. The engine allows the car to jump from 0 - 60 mph in an impressive 4.3 seconds. Achievements like this are matched by the top speed of the car which is 200 mph. With a 616 BHP, the performance of this car matches its elegance. It's a car that is waiting to be noticed and driven by people who are not afraid of exploring the magic of this car. The engine of the Flying Spur is held together with an innovative engine management system, something which shows Bentley's commitment to technology, changing people's perception that this car is more than just a luxury car, it's a luxury car with performance credentials.
Torque is given a boost thanks to the all-wheel drive that has front to rear torque split. You feel the power of the all-wheel drive when you are using the 8-speed transmission which are comprehensive enough to provide drivers with different driving experiences when at the helm of this car to suit their needs. The transmission system is kept in check with the brake system of the Flying Spur; it consists of the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), the Advanced Braking System (ABS) and the Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA). All of these controls come together to provide a safe platform so clients can just sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty of the Flying Spur.
Air springs with damping control give the Flying Spur the stability that passengers need to enjoy the journey. Controlling the Flying Spur is also made easier with the speed sensitive power steering feature that makes the car an even and seasoned car to drive on hire.
The cabin is upholstered in Linen, made of premium grade hide that Bentley sources with care. The hides are fitted by hand for that ultra-luxurious finish. The linen interior contrasts with leather headlining of the cabin. Even the carpet of the boot has attention to detail as it is draped in Cream. Bentley's commitment to classic automotive style is sent through the gorgeous wood veneers on the fascia and console panels. Wood is a material that has been part of Bentley's DNA for many years and it looks thoroughly fresh in this new Flying Spur.
Comfort is one of the most important features in the cabin. The 4+1 seating system is a hallmark of a true Bentley saloon. The seats for the driver and passengers feature 14-way adjustments with memory and lumbar support. This is perfect for relaxing in the cabin during long car rides. The lumbar support in particular will gain the Flying Spur many fans. To keep the sun out, Bentley has included electronically operated blinds to ensure passengers enjoy a comfortable ride without interference from the suns glare. Automatic climate control is also available to keep the temperature inside at a cool level depending on your passenger's needs.
White is a truly striking shade to cover the body of our new Bentley Flying Spur hire car. It gleams in all-weather conditions while giving the Flying Spur a regal look. Hugged by 21" inch alloy wheels with a diamond turned finish, the body is given a stylish makeover thanks to the many design that Bentley is renowned for. Take a look at the W12 badge on the car alongside the Black 'B' on the centres of the wheels and you'll know this is a true Bentley. There is also a 'B' chrome wing vent detail on the black grille which contrasts with the oval chrome exhaust finisher.
Vehicle dynamics and electronics
The exterior has the substance to back up its stylish roots. From the Bi-Xenon projector headlamps to the full LED rear lamps, the exterior shows that it can protect other motorists as well as give Bentley drivers the lights they need to guide their car journeys.
Tech-savvy Bentley added twilight sensor control and tunnel detection for lighting to make drive during dark conditions easier to handle. The exterior proves that the driver doesn't have to be strained with innovative features like this. The 21" alloy wheels are also managed by the electronic tyre pressure monitoring system. When drivers see the Flying Spur power latching on the doors and keyless entry they just want to jump in.
Rain is dealt with efficiently thanks to the rain sensing windscreen wipers that automatically get to work when droplets of rain are felt. The colour coded electronically adjusted door mirrors also hint to the hi-tech exterior that is the port of entry to the lush interior.
For the driver, the steering wheel is always the beginning of the story of the car journey whether it is for corporate car hire or just weekend driving. The 4-spoke mono tone steering wheel is lush and practical. The steering wheel works in tandem with the front touch-screen infotainment system. This is not an ordinary media system. This system includes an 8"resolution screen with a CD/DVD slot as well as telephone controls that are meshed with BlueTooth wireless compatibility. Music sounds great out of the Balanced Mode Radiator speakers. The infotainment system also includes integrated HVAC controls and a touch screen remote in the back. From the razor-sharp tread plates with plaques to the park distance control inside the car, the cabin is clearly ideal for all types of driving yet indicative of Bentley's powerful vision.
