All-New Bentley Flying Spur Coming Next Month

Bentley are set to release a new Flying Spur Grand Touring Sedan on the 11th of June 2019. This will tie in with the celebration of the brand’s centennial.

The car will depart from convention slightly. One feature that we’ve not seen on Bentleys is all-wheel steering. This piece of technology was first popularised on Japanese cars like the Honda Prelude, Subaru SVX, Nissan Skyline R34 and more. As of late, all-wheel steering has made a resurgence in ultra-luxury performance cars like the Mercedes-AMG GT C and Porsche 911 GT3.

It’s only fitting that the new Flying Spur gets the technology as well.

Besides all-wheel steering, Bentley are also giving this Flying Spur their latest all-wheel drive technology as well as Bentley Dynamic Ride.

Press Release:

In the year Bentley Motors celebrates its 100th anniversary, the British creator of extraordinary Grand Touring cars is promising to once again set new standards of both driving enjoyment and luxury when it reveals the all-new, third generation Flying Spur Grand Touring Sedan at 11:00BST on Tuesday, June 11.

This will be the very first Bentley to feature All-Wheel Steering enhancing both stability at cruising speeds and agility around town. During high-speed manoeuvres, the electronic system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels, making overtaking and lane-changes more assured. All-Wheel Steering also means no compromise between high speed confidence and low speed convenience.

Like every Flying Spur of recent times, the third incarnation features All-Wheel Drive for optimum traction.  For the first time, drive is supplied only to the rear wheels in standard road conditions giving classic sports sedan handling characteristics.  If any slip is detected, the system can instantly send drive to the front wheels providing active All-Wheel Drive, fully automatically.

Bentley Dynamic Ride is designed to further improve both handling and ride comfort.  New to the Flying Spur, the innovative system changes suspension stiffness on demand to combat cornering forces and minimise body roll that might otherwise disturb occupants.

Like the recently launched Continental GT, the all-new Flying Spur is a ground up development that pushes the boundaries of both technology and craftsmanship to deliver segment-defining levels of performance and refinement.  Owing only its historic name to the preceding model, the four-door sedan will deliver an unparalleled touring experience for the driver and passengers alike.  Quite simply, the world’s leading luxury automotive company is intending to create the world’s best luxury Grand Touring sedan when the all-new Flying Spur is revealed in just a few weeks’ time.
