2020 Bentley Flying Spur lands in KL

By thoriq, 18 February 2020

One of our favourite big-grilled cars that's destined to impress both chauffeurs and the chauffeured alike has landed. Say hello to the all-new third generation Bentley Flying Spur.

We've been fortunate with the opportunity to size it up in the flesh again at Bentley Kuala Lumpur during a private preview this week and, as you might expect, there's plenty to marvel in. If you happen to have the bank balance that supports owning one, there's a lot to look forward to as well.

As we've discovered prior from its regional launch not too long ago, the Continental GT's four-door twin no longer carries the 'Continental' naming prefix. However, the similarities in their forward halves remains.

Crewe's signature 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 proudly sits up front still, delivering 626bhp and 900Nm to all four wheels via an 8spd DCT and active AWD driveline combination. The result sees the Flying Spur claim the title as the planet's faster four-door thanks to its 3.8-sec 0-100kph sprint time and 333kph claimed V-Max.

Aptly, what really sets the Flying Spur apart form its Continental GT coupe twin is the added luxury at the back. There's a pair of extra doors and seats for starters, not forgetting a bigger boot too.

You'd also get to bask in Crewe's distinct handcrafted luxury flair here, complete with two dedicated infotainment screen amongst many other things.

On top of that, the pre-production demonstrator we inspected today featured the Blackline Specification option – one of several present. Costing an additional RM21,300, the Blackline Specification sees dresses the Flying Spur with black-finished exterior trims instead of using traditional chrome. In the flesh, it does look very tasty indeed.


Our colleagues in the UK have already sampled the Flying Spur on the road not too long ago. Click these blue words if you want an idea on how it drives and rides, especially if you're in the fortunate place of being able to acquire one.

Speaking of which, Bentley Kuala Lumpur have already begun accepting orders since the Flying Spur's aforementioned regional debut. The base price figure starts at *RM840,000 EXCLUDING taxes, duties, options, insurance and on-road costs.

So, what will it be then? This? The Flying Spur's sleeker coupe twin? Or would you rather settle for either the W12 or V8-powered Bentayga SUV cousin instead? Check out more images of the new Bentley Flying Spur in the galleries prepared below.
