The new 2020 Bentley Flying Spur is undoubtedly one of the finest automobiles ever produced by the British car manufacturer and Roadshow puts it through its paces in the following video.
Production of the new Flying Spur started in October last year with each unit assembled by hand in Crewe, England. Underpinning the car is the same platform as the current Bentley Continental GT, with power coming courtesy of a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 churning out no less than 626 HP (635 PS) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque.
This engine is coupled to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission driving all four wheels, helping send the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a mere 3.8 seconds and achieve a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h). Those are extremely impressive numbers for a vehicle that weighs roughly 2.5 tons (5,500 lbs).
The Flying Spur tested by Roadshow is painted in a dark shade of green and includes the Black Line specification meaning it features black accents throughout the exterior as opposed to the chrome trimmings you’d ordinarily find on a regular model.
Performance feels remarkable for such a big car. The reviewer notes that it is shockingly nimble and actually handles corners very well. The 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 also makes it a rocket ship in a straight line.
The inside of the car is absolutely glorious, especially for those who sit at the rear. For example, rear-seat passengers have access to no less than three touchscreens. There are also massage and reclining seat wrapped in beautifully soft and supple leather. Watch the video to learn why the new Bentley Flying Spur is such a special automobile.
