History of Bentley Flying Spur V8 First Edition
The Bentley Flying Spur is a series of luxury saloons produced by Bentley Motors Limited since 2005 and marketed since 2006. It was manufactured at the Bentley factory in Crew, England.
However, due to a lack of capacity at the Crewe factory, some Flying Spurs were built for markets other than the United States and the United Kingdom at Volkswagen Transparent Factory in Dresden, Germany. In 2006, this arrangement ended after all assembly work returned to Crewe.
The first generation of the Flying Spur was launched in 2005 as a four-door saloon similar to the 2003 Continental Coupe. While offering more space, comfort and refinement, it also retained the performance figures of the GT version. It was also provided in a Speed version with a three-tone interior to make personalisation limitless.
A sportier, more muscular design than the first generation with a sharply defined body shape, a prominent upright grille, large jewel headlamps, sharp wing vents and athletic design lines was introduced by the British brand in 2013. It also includes variants such as the distinctive W12 Flying Spur, an agile V8, a sporty V8 S and the powerful Flying Spur W12 S.
The third generation was revealed in June 2019 and is based on an all-new platform similar to the current Continental GT. Its front end gets a new grille with vertical slats reminiscent of the Rolls-Royce, while the rear features new taillights with a B motif.
The Bentley Flying Spur has been designed as a superlative four-door saloon for drivers and passengers. It provides ample space for four adults to travel in exceptional comfort and has strong performance combined with agility.
In Bentley’s 2020 sales report, America remains Bentley’s most important market, and its strong performance is enhanced by the new Flying Spur, with China coming in a close second.
