Bentley Flying Spur W12 has been recognized in MotorWeek’s 2021 Drivers’ Choice Awards, which selects the best in the automotive industry, as the Best Dream Machine. MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice Awards have been presented annually since 1983.
The Bentley Flying Spur is a car that fully lives up to our lofty automotive dreams when it comes to luxury, and then far exceeds them when it comes to performance. It effortlessly races to 60 miles per hour in well under 4.0-seconds, which is truly not enough time to enjoy the meticulously hand-crafted embrace that is the Flying Spur’s cabin. – John Davis, Creator, Host and Senior Executive Producer of MotorWeek
With more than 40,000 examples sold since its launch in 2005, the Flying Spur W12 is one of the most successful luxury sports sedans in the world. The third-generation Flying Spur has become the new Bentley flagship and it features industry-first three-dimensional leather, cutting edge Bentley Rotating Display, and a retractable, illuminated “Flying B”.
The Flying Spur has been part of Bentley since 2005 and since then has set the bar for the best of both worlds, combining limousine luxury and sports car performance, resulting in the ultimate Dream Machine. Our entire team is honoured that MotorWeek has also recognized the Flying Spur as a leader in the industry. – Christophe Georges, Bentley Americas CEO and President
The bold exterior design of the Flying Spur is based on a new and modern vision that requires increased road presence from stronger, more muscular styling. Its modern cabin features supremely comfortable seats with Bentley’s ‘Wing’ theme across the lower console and fascia. A sweeping horizontal veneer flows across the dashboard and into the doors. Crown Cut Walnut is offered as standard, which uses a straight cut process to provide a modern finish.
The Flying Spur is fitted with a portfolio of intelligent and intuitive equipment tailored to the driver and passengers. An embedded SIM is provided, meaning My Bentley connected car features no longer require customers to provide their own data connection. Other features include Apple CarPlay®, photorealistic landscapes through satellite maps, and advance warning of changing road or traffic conditions via the local hazard information service displayed on the vehicle’s infotainment system.
The rear cabin of the Flying Spur can also be equipped with a range of optional accessories including Rear Seat Entertainment tablets, audio options up to the industry-leading Naim for Bentley system, and even the luxury of an onboard two-bottle drinks cooler.
All Flying Spurs are produced at Bentley’s home in Crewe – the world’s first carbon-neutral factory for luxury car production.
