Redesigned Bentley Flying Spur Begins Production

November 1, 2019 by Nate Chapnick

Bentley’s third generation Flying Spur has begun production at the company’s factory in Crewe, England following some one million miles of development testing. No fewer than 200 people handcraft every Flying Spur through some 84 different assembly stages at the Crewe factory. Peter Bosch, Board Member for Manufacturing, Bentley Motors, said: “The new Flying Spur is a leap forward in combining state of the art high technology with a modern ultra-luxurious interior and exterior. “Every single example is an artisanal piece of art, handcrafted using the finest, authentic materials and surfaces that are unmistakably Bentley. The car truly delivers the duality of sports sedan agility and contemporary limousine refinement.”

Bentley reports that the development of the new Flying Spur involved the use of 142 prototypes and pre-production cars spanning over one million miles of testing. Vehicles were driven in 18 countries across four continents and in temperatures ranging from -29 to 118 degrees Fahrenheit. Bentley also drove the new Flying Spur over 7,460 miles at the car’s maximum speed of 207 mph and completed over 150 laps on the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit. Expect the Flying Spur to reach the first US customers by early 2020. MensBook.com and Bentley Atlanta have partnered on a special event Nov. 17 to unveil one of the first Flying Spurs to arrive in the U.S. For details, click here
