Bentley Still Coy About 2019 Flying Spur, Sends It To Sweden 20
Dec
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Bentley, Bentley Flying Spur, Bentley Scoops, Scoops, Sweden on 12 20th, 2017


With the all-new Bentley Flying Spur undergoing cold testing at freezing temperatures, all that camouflage is probably there to help it keep warm.

On a serious note, the car remains very well covered up, just as any of the previous prototypes we saw, ever since it went from test mule to production body last summer.

Fortunately for us, since the Flying Spur is basically the four-door version of the all-new Continental GT, we should have a pretty good idea as to what it will look like, especially when viewed from the front.

Otherwise, this should be a very sleek and luxurious four-door saloon, not to mention massive, riding on the VW Group’s MSB-F architecture – used for both the Porsche Panamera as well as the new Continental GT. Aside from being both rear and all-wheel drive compatible (and electrified), the platform will support a wide array of electronics, from active safety systems, to modern convenience gizmos.

It should also feature the Continental GT’s fully digital and configurable instrument panel, with its 12.3-inch display, plus top notch materials such as natural leathers and hand-polished chrome accents.

Aside from a planned plug-in hybrid version, the Flying Spur’s engine range will include a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12, which already produces 635 PS (626 HP) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque underneath the Continental GT’s massive bonnet. Since the latter can sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.6 seconds, the Flying Spur might also manage a sub 4-second time.

The 2019 Bentley Flying Spur will make its debut sometime in late 2018.

Bentley’s Committed To Dropping The Top On The Continental GTC 22
Nov
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Bentley, Bentley Continental, Bentley Scoops, Scoops on 11 22nd, 2017


You might think of owning a convertible as offering a choice… but really it’s an obligation – an obligation to drive it with the roof down as much as possible. And we have to applaud these engineers from Bentley for taking that to the extreme.

Spotted by our papparrazzi at CarPix in the frozen north is a prototype for the forthcoming Continental GTC, the drop-top version of the recently revealed coupe that we knew would be coming sooner or later. And it looks like sooner.

Though still wearing (some pretty cool-looking geometric) camouflage, it’s plain to see what we’re looking at here. And it looks pretty good with the roof down and that continuous strip of chrome surrounding the cabin.

As bad as we may feel for the engineers tasked with shaking it down with the cold air swirling around, the Conti would probably be the best convertible for driving with the roof down in the winter – what with its all-wheel traction and assuredly comfortable heated seats.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see some sort of Mercedes-style air-scarf system to blow warm air onto the occupants’ necks, and more heated surfaces than the Space Shuttle on reentry. But it’s probably a good thing that these test drivers are bundled up, with the windows up and the rear screen in place.
