2018 Bentley Flying Spur Information

As with the Flying Spur from earlier years, it remains a staid competitor in this high-echelon market, though with slight alterations from headlamp to grill, and additional customised and exclusive colourway options, to pleasing effect.

Small changes

New this year are 21-inch alloy wheels in black (optional upgrades at $US2730).

A new upright chrome grille and lower chrome bumper insert give the car a muscular face while the brilliant LED headlamps elegantly soften what might have been an aggressive look overall.

Its 616-horsepower (459KW) W12 engine is a tribute to the glories of British racing (let's not forget Bentleys were champion racecars when they first started), and its silky smooth suspension belies its 5456-pound (2474kg) heft.

Highway 111 near the desolate Salton Sea saw the speedometer cruising past 100mp/h; the car didn't break a sweat.

Top speed is 200mp/h - not even the Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo can go that fast.

Adaptive cruise control will cost you $US2980 extra but possibly keep you out of speeding tickets, so it may be worth it.
