Making its debut on the 2020 model is a retractable and electronically-illuminated ‘Flying B’ mascot (similar to Rolls-Royce’s ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’), which channels strong, flowing design lines to the rear of the car’s silhouette.
Lurking underneath the bonnet is Bentley’s surefire W12 TSI 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged hand-built engine that puts out a staggering 467kW or power and 900Nm of torque to a brand new electronic all-wheel steering system.
The Continental GT’s eight-speed ZF dual-clutch transmission is carried over to the Flying Spur also, helping the heavy limo achieve an admirable 0-100km/h dash of just 3.8 seconds.
There’s a noticeable emphasis on passenger comfort in the new Flying Spur, with an adaptive exhaust system able to be dialled down in the rear half of the car, as well as a lengthened wheelbase of 130mm to increase cabin space.
Buyers can naturally expect a classically Bentley interior with expert craftsmanship and all the bells and whistles. The floating centre console that is home to a 12.3-inch touchscreen is worth a mention, as is the three-dimensional diamond quilted leather detailing.
Australian pricing is yet to be confirmed, so you’ve got plenty of time to choose between Bentley’s portfolio of 17 available colours.
