What’s a driver meant to do, if they want both a luxury limousine and a performance sedan all in one vehicle? Bentley believes it has the answer, with the all-new 2020 Flying Spur promising extreme performance and extreme luxury. The former comes from a 6.2-liter W12 engine good for 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque.
That means 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, and a top speed of 207 mph. Not bad for a car more than 17 feet in length, and which weighs more than 5,300 pounds. The Continental GT shares its iron brakes, the biggest fitted on any car, for when it comes to slowing, along with its 8-speed dual-clutch ZF transmission. Air suspension is standard.
On the luxury side, there’s a host of leather, wood veneer, and other options, and that’s before you get to the Mulliner team and their potential for customization. A 12.3-inch HD touchscreen is found in the new dashboard, with a fully upgraded infotainment system. The 2020 Flying Spur will begin deliveries in early 2020.
