The 2014 Bentley Flying Spur has been launched in India today. Unveiled earlier this year at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Flying Spur gets a complete makeover inside and out.
For starters, Bentley has lowered the roof line of the car and this claim that the drag coefficient has also reduced to 0.29 Cd. The rear taillights feature a new design which the company says is elliptical in shape. Overall, 600 parts have been changed and the new model weighs 50kg lower than the outgoing model.
Power comes from a 6.0-liter W12 TwinTurbocharged engine producing 616bhp and 800Nm of torque. A ZF 8-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels. 0-100km/h takes 4.3 seconds while the top-speed is rated at 322km/h. Bentley says the Flying Spur will do 6.8km/l.
Bentley has priced the new Flying Spur at INR 3.1 crores ex-Showroom, New Delhi. However, the price is subject to exchange rate fluctuations and various additional and optional equipment.
Mr Chris Buxton, Regional Manager, India, South Africa & Middle East said -
India is a very important market for Bentley, our association with Exclusive Motors has been really rewarding and goes back a long way. India is the hub of luxury, the country of the erstwhile Maharaja’s, who were the true patrons of bespoke luxury. We have, in the past received a heartening response from our valued customers and I think the launch of the New Flying Spur will truly delight our loyal and discerning audience. The new model is faster and more powerful than its predecessor, while also featuring enhanced cabin technology and even higher levels of comfort and refinement.
