The first cars of this redesigned model will be delivered to customers at the beginning of next year. Bentley has not yet announced the price of this car, but the most recent version of the 12-cylinder Flying Spur cost around $245,000.
The 2020 Flying Spur is an all-wheel-drive sedan with all-wheel steering. At low speeds, the back wheels turn in the opposite direction from the front wheels, allowing the car to turn in a tighter circle. At high speeds, the front and back wheels turn in the same direction, which makes for smoother lane changes on the highway.
Inside, the car has a rotating pane in the center of the dashboard. When parked, it shows three old-fashioned gauges. When the car starts, it rotates to reveal a foot-wide high-definition computer screen. The driver can also select to show a plain wooden panel that blends in with the rest of the dashboard.
On the outside, the Flying Spur’s big gloss-black radiator grill is designed to recall a classic 1957 Bentley. The Flying B hood ornament can retract to protect it from thieves or vandals when the car is parked.
