Great news is coming from Bentley for all the lovers of the next-generation luxurious sedans. The new Bentley Flying Spur is going to hit the market as a 2019 model. It will make its appearance with a significantly improved styling, luxurious interior and excellent performances.
It is hard to give a detailed review after seeing the spy photos of the camouflaged prototype and most of the information we have got are based on rumors and comparisons to similar models. For instance, it has been said that the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur will be based on the MSB-F platform seen on the new Porche Panamera. This model will be a four-door sedan and resemble the Continental GT a lot, especially in the front fascia. However, the nose of the new Flying Spur will be a bit lowered as well as the grille. The grille will also be wider but it will probably keep its traditional shape. The bumper will acquire sportier design while the front fenders and doors will remain mostly the same. It will get the quad headlamps and smaller side lamps and the taillights will appear a bit longer and slimmer. The profile is pretty much similar to the current model.
The spy photos certainly could not reveal enough information about the interior of the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur, that’s for sure. However, according to the information that we have got, the rumor has it that the new Flying Spur will employ Porche parts inside the cabin as well. So, you can only guess what to expect, since the brand Bentley definitely promises the luxury. The two-tone interior will keep its elegant and luxurious styling, but acquire sportier look, too. You will find the finest natural hand-stitched leather on the seats and the steering wheel. Since the new Bentley belongs to the next-generation vehicles, you can also expect the latest infotainment and entertainment systems. The modern and expensive dashboard will provide wide instrument cluster, the center console and touch screens with all the necessary options. Everything will be fingertip controlled.
When it comes to power train of the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur, the most probable option will be a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. Such an engine will be able to hit 550 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque. The other possibility would be a 2.9-liter V-6 with 450 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. However, the most keenly anticipated would definitely be a 6.0-liter W12 engine. We hope that this rumor will come true.
