Bentley has been in the competition for long but hasn’t ever got up to the mark in quality, performance and luxury of a Rolls Royce. But this time, Bentley Flying Spur 2020 is a flagship that might be in the correct place. It is luxurious, looks commendable awesome and is also fast.
Rolls Royce needs to look with their competition this time as it is too close to it and could also be better. We have the full specifications and details regarding Bentley Flying Spur 2020 further.
Bentley Flying Spur 2020 Engine and Driveability
Past Bentley Flying Spur was having a twin-turbo W12 engine with an output of 626 hp. This time it gets a better-upgraded engine with same output but a better jump in torque from 800 – 900nm.

Bentley Flying Spur 2020 can now achieve 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds. It is half a second quicker than the previous version. These figures are never expected from an impressive long luxury sedan. Top speed, if you ever want to experience the thrill is 203 mph i.e 333 kmph. Damn!
This time Bentley wanted to make a piece that is much better in comfort as well as handling and driveability. It has an 8-speed Dual Clutch ZF transmission. What does it do? Taken from Continental GT which means smoother and quicker shifts. Another advantage is that it is better on fuel economy. As if anybody cares at this luxury level!

Now we come to the handling of the car to what Bentley had issues. Instead of sticking to the predominant AWD terrain, Bentley opted for RWD this time. But why? This is something interesting tech that they have incorporated. Whenever the driver pushes the vehicle hard and the rear wheel slips, the computer will pump power to the front wheel to give better efficiency in launching.
Now another upgrade is the rear electronic steering wheel. Yes, and it will work in slow as well as fast driving conditions. How will this help? Let’s say yours have to take a U-turn at a congested place. The front and the rear wheels will turn in opposite directions. This will consecutively reduce the turning radius. Might be a sedan but will take smaller turning radius.

Now when we are on a highway and we need to change lanes but do not want our fellow passenger to experience the body roll. The all-wheel steering also helps here. All four wheels turn in the same direction making the car change lanes in a stationary position. Better isn’t it.
Comfort and Luxury
Now it is the area where Bentley lacked a bit. But now there have been multiple upgrades which are quite interesting. This time it gets a three-chamber spring air suspension which can be tuned between luxury-lounge comfort to sporty stiffness. It has active damping which will continuously change suspension settings depending upon the drive and road conditions.
Similarly, there are multiple sensors that are monitoring your drive, cornering and ride height per wheel. All these feed into the computer gives you better comfort and luxurious riding capabilities.
In order to control the speed and put the vehicle to halt, we now come to the braking area of the Bentley Flying Spur 2020. It has a 420 mm iron discs which are the biggest ever produced. These brakes have been taken up by the Continental GT.
Exhausts! Yes, it has some hidden for you. It will be quiet when you want to enjoy the rear seat comfort. But when you are behind the wheels and want some aggressive revs, yes it will provide you with some rattling and pops from the exhausts.
Interiors and Exterior of Bentley Flying Spur
Interiors; yes much have changed. Bentley Flying Spur 2020 now has a floating display console with 12.3-inch touch. And instrument cluster, as usual, a digital detox. Contains wireless charging, well who wants to see cables lying around.
It now has comfy ventilated, cooled, heated and massage seats. Seven ambient lighting options to suit your mood and look tacky as well as lovely. It now has the best options in stereo. But you just to know about the one which I personally consider the best.
It is a 19 separate speaker with 2,200 watts output and active bass transducers which I could say that it will rock your mind and jiggle you up whenever you listen to it.
With night vision standard, Bentley Flying Spur 2020 comes equipped with LED matrix headlights. You go to any location at any time and the brightness of the headlights will never disappoint you. It is now a machine which is balanced in every state and is now a better option in every aspect.
Booking starts in 2020. So be ready and updated with your nearest Bentley dealer if you want one. Check out The Geek Herald for more exciting updates.
