Summary

The new Flying Spur is a world-class flagship, balancing performance, luxury, and style in equal measure. The way it drives and handles is quite astonishing for such a large car, while the opulence of the cabin and attention to detail show Bentley at its best. There are few finer places to sit than in its back seats.

With Bentley retiring the Mulsanne, the mantle of carrying the brand's flagship status falls to the new Flying Spur. The way it drives and handles is quite astonishing for such a large car, while the opulence of the cabin and attention to detail show Bentley at its best. Key to its suave appearance are its new proportions. Bentley has added 130mm to the Flying Spur's wheelbase.

Sentiment Score[*] 90%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Bentley Flying Spur was already a five-star car and our 2020 Luxury Car of the Year. The fact that this new V8 edition isn't as expensive as the W12 and offers a more engaging drive without making a compromise in any single area means it's the pick of the line-up. Despite the lighter engine, the Flying Spur V8 weighs more than 2,300kg.

  • V8 is more engaging to drive than the W12
  • Impressive range of engine options
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

The 2020 Bentley Flying Spur features a 6.0-liter W12 under the hood. The W12 cranks out a massive 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The car's infotainment system is functional and clean, offering most of the modern features you'd expect.
