The Bentley Flying Spur, halfway between the Continental GT and the Mulsanne, is getting a whole new generation. This is reflected in any case in these spy photos showing a prototype of the car that literally tortures its driver on the German Nurburgring route. Despite its thick camouflage, we can see the lines and curves of Bentley's next largest saloon car. Aesthetic codes should not change too much.
We will find these four famous round lights in front as the rear approaches the new Continental GT. Inside, the customers are not left behind, as they find a true jewel of luxury and technology, combining the best materials with the latest driving aids. In terms of engines, Bentley will always include a V8 and a W12 in its catalog. A little novelty, but like the Continental GT, the new Flying Spur will also get a plug-in hybrid engine. The first rumors indicate the use of a V6 connected to an electric motor. Bentley is part of the Volkswagen Group. For sure, the 3.0-liter V6 will romp under the bonnets of the Porsche Panamera, Porsche Cayenne and other Audi RS 4 and RS 5 cars.
The new Flying Spur should also mark a turning point in the history of the brand. In fact, Bentley should turn everything on in the next decade. The Flying Spur should then be the latest model of the brand with fully thermal variants. The prototypes have been running for quite some time, which suggests an early presentation. The new Flying Spur is due to be launched early next year. The hybrid version will follow a bit later until 2020.
