The 2020 Bentley Flying Spur has been revealed to the world and the configurator has gone live, and you can build your own.
The magnificent Flying Spur is built around Bentley’s twin-turbo 6,0-litre W12 engine with a whopping 467 kW of power and 900 Nm of torque. This takes the limousine from 0-100 km/h in just 3,8 seconds whilst the top speed is 333 km/h.
The cabin gets more room thanks to an extra 130 mm between axles. The overall dimensions are 5 316 mm in length, 1 978 mm in width and 1 484 mm in height, with the wheelbase measuring at 3 194 mm. The Flying Spur won’t just be wider but Bentley is billing it as the most advanced luxury Grand Touring sedan available today, offering a host of cutting-edge technologies thanks to its totally new and advanced aluminium and composite chassis and 48V electronic architecture.
A host of new Driver Assistance Systems are fitted to the new Flying Spur as standard, including Traffic Assist, City Assist and Blind Spot Warning.

Inside, the Bentley Rotating Display is also now available on the new Flying Spur. The all-new seats, which can be ordered in in 15 hide colours, feature a twin-flute design and increased functionality, including heating, ventilation, multi-mode massage, adjustable bolsters and top tilt.
In the rear, an all-new Touch Screen Remote allows access to a wide range of applications, including control of all blinds, rear seat massage function and rear climate control, and can be used to pre-store configurations such as Mood Lighting.
A number of hand-picked Mulliner-prepared features have been made available for the new Flying Spur. These include Lofted Diamond Leather Quilting upholstery for seats with unique Three-dimensional Diamond Leather door inserts; an exclusive Mulliner 22” wheel in two finishes; embroidered wings to all seats, sports pedals and jewelled-finish fuel filler and oil caps. Separately available, Mulliner have also developed a world-first, solid wood, three-dimensional diamond quilted door insert, exclusively available in open-pore walnut.
