New Bentley Flying Spur: first glimpse

Published: 10 April 2019

► First look at new Flying Spur
► Only teaser photos for now
► Expect it in summer 2019 

This is our first look at the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur, the entry-level limousine in Crewe's luxo line-up.

Annoyingly, only these two teaser images have been issued thus far, giving a limited look at what we can expect. Not that you'll earn any brownie points for working out this is a Continental GT stretched and massaged into a four-door saloon format. You can safely expect V8 and W12 power, all-wheel drive and the very best in interior quality and craftsmanship. In time, a plug-in hybrid V6 will be offered, too.

All that Pyms Lane is saying for now is this: 'The world’s leading luxury automotive company is innovating beyond the existing boundaries of performance, refinement and luxury with the introduction of an all-new four-door Grand Tourer. Full details of the new Flying Spur will be released later this year.'

One detail that has been shown in more detail is a pop-up Bentley badge that rises from the bonnet at start-up. It's quite an intricate detail, especially the expensive-looking crystal glass in the flying B's wings.

Stay tuned for more news on the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur. We'll be publishing more details, news, specs and photos just as soon as the company reveals more.
