The company revealed information about the next generation sedan.
Bentley has published photos and shared new information about the next generation Flying Spur sedan. The novelty will be the first model of the brand with a fully-operated chassis. The car will also receive all-wheel drive and a Bentley Dynamic Ride adaptive suspension. The world premiere of the new Flying Spur will take place on June 11th.
The basis of the new Bentley Flying Spur will be the MSB platform, as in the Porsche Panamera. This platform is also used on the Continental GT coupe and cabriolet. The Porsche sedan will also get a full-drive chassis that will improve stability during maneuvering at high speeds and handling at low speeds. All-wheel drive transmission with a front axle connection clutch by default will transmit torque to the rear wheels. Front included in the work only when slipping. In addition, for the first time, the Bentley Dynamic Ride adaptive suspension with adjustable dampers will be included in the equipment of the new Flying Spur.
It became known earlier that a new material will be used to trim the four-door grand tour, a three-dimensional textured leather, developed by specialists from the brand’s headquarters in the British Crewe. It will be part of a wide range of improvements and technologies prepared for the new Flying Spur. Bentley also published a video about the car of the new generation. In it you can see the retractable brand emblem Flying B with luminous wings and a metal fin in the center of the hood.
The range of engines of the new generation Bentley Flying Spur will consist of 6.0 W12 (635 forces and 900 Nm) and a 4.0-V8 twin-turbo engine, which produces 550 horsepower and 770 Nm of torque on the coupe. Later, a plug-in hybrid with a power plant from the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid (462 power and 700 Nm) will appear in the line.
