Bentley has introduced the new Flying Spur in Russia, in a space created specifically for the company, located high atop Moscow.
“The all-new Flying Spur has been developed from scratch and will be assembled at the iconic Bentley factory in Crewe. Its name is the only legacy from the predecessor model,” said Christian Schlick, Head of Bentley Russia. “We are excited and confident that the Flying Spur will impress Russian customers. This luxurious and dynamic sports sedan is a touchstone of elegance and quality associated with Bentley for 100 years.”
The luxurious Bentley Rooms penthouse, atop Tverskaya Residence (an elite development with expanded hotel services and designer finishes, located in the literal centre of Moscow), proved the perfect location for the introduction of the elegant new sedan, an ultra-luxury behemoth capable of sprinting to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and reaching a top speed of 333 km/h thanks to the motivation of the 626-hp 6.0-litre W-12 (making 664 lb-ft of torque), controlled by a paddle-shifted 8-speed double clutch automatic.
“The all-new Flying Spur is a perfect blend of emotional design, performance engineering and innovative technology in a luxurious Grand Touring sports sedan,” said Hans Holzgartner, Senior Product Manager for Bentley Motors. “We have created a timeless car that will transcend fashion trends, intended to delight its owner with a constant voyage of discovery, preserving, and multiplying its status for decades to come. We are sure it will add a new successful chapter in Bentley’s history.”
And naturally, the interior is everything you’d expect from Bentley, finely crafted with exclusive appointments, such as Crown Cut Walnut veneer trim panels, and innovations like Bentley’s 3-edge rotating display.
And for the cake topper, Bentley has reimagined the Flying B mascot as a chromium-plated, LED tipped hood ornament that deploys and retracts with the unlocking/locking of the doors.
