Bentley Flying Spur 2020 will receive a hybrid plug-inSeptember 7, 2019
The Bentley Flying Spur is powered by a 635 hp 6.0-liter W12 engine. This allows the Flying Spur 2020 to accelerate to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 333 km / h.
More demanding Bentley customers will be able to choose the version of Flying Spur Speed, which has not only improved features, but also exclusive luxury. But that’s not all: there is a chance that a hybrid system will be installed in the upcoming version of Flying Spur Speed - the first for the Speed model.
In the photo you can see an additional “fuel cap” on the left rear wing. Obviously, this is not for refueling: it is a charging port, suggesting that the Flying Spur Speed will have a plug-in hybrid transmission. The big question is which drivetrain the super luxury sedan will use. Most likely, the hybrid installation will be from the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
This powerplant is the most logical choice, since Flying Spur is based on the same MSB platform as the Panamera. The range of EV will be about 50 km. In style it is quite difficult to distinguish this Speed model from the usual Flying Spur. In addition to the charging port, the only visible updates are the darkened mesh grille, darkened front bumper air intakes and four-circuit exhaust tips. In addition, a stiffer sport suspension is installed. The world debut of the Bentley Flying Spur Speed is expected in early 2020.
