Bentley Launches New Flying Spur in India for Rs 3.10 crore
British luxury car giant Bentley today launched the much anticipated Flying Spur luxury sedan in India at a staring price of Rs 3.10 crore (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The new Flying Spur is the Bentley's most powerful four-door model ever produced, which is more powerful, refined, agile and elegant than the earlier 'Continental' version. The latest model comes in a wide array of refined colors which add more beauty and value to this exquisite Bentley. The launch took place at the Exclusive Motors, the official dealer of Bentley in India. At the launch the company informed that even before the launch of the vehicle, they have received bookings till February, so first thing that the company will do is deliver those units immediately. The company is also hoping to sell about 50 units of the car within this financial year.
Commenting on the launch, 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 erstwhile Maharaj'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 comforts and refinement."
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Satya Bagla, Managing Director, Exclusive Motors said, "We are pleased to launch the new Flying Spur in India; the car is a modern statement of luxury driving and grand touring. The new Flying Spur is faster than most of the 2 door luxury sports car and has taken luxury to a whole new level setting the highest benchmark. Thus, one can enjoy the rare combination of Speed & Luxury with new model. We are thrilled to launch the New Flying Spur and are confident that the car will receive an overwhelming response from the patrons of luxury."
The all new Flying Spur is the fastest road-going luxury sedan in the world, powered by Bentley's renowned 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine. It develops 625 PS, accelerating from 0-100kmph in just 4.6 seconds. The athletic design of the new Flying Spur combines traditional Bentley Styling cues with a dynamic stance and contemporary details.
The styling of the all new Flying Spur establishes a new design character for Bentley's performance sedan. An elegant direction is reflected by a lower, wider appearance with sharp lines and gently curvaceous surfaces. A lower roof-line deeply sculpted panels, precise feature lines and a muscular rear haunch give the Flying Spur a more aggressive and a powerfully dynamic profile.
The Exterior design, manufacturing processes and carefully optimised materials selections combine to provide a bodyshell that is not only muscular and clean, with minimal shutlines, but also one that performs exceptionally well on the road. With a torsional stiffness of 36,500 Nm/degree, a 4 % increase over the previous generation Flying Spur, the new bodyshell provides an extremely rigid platform for the chassis components and a stable foundation for NVH reduction. The sleek shape also has outstanding aerodynamic properties for a large sedan, with an overall drag coefficient of just 0.29 and ensuring benefits to emissions performance.
Weight saving in the body structure and throughout the car mean that the new Flying Spur is 50 kg lighter than the first generation car, despite the additional refinement measures, enhanced technology specification and stronger structure.
The interior of the new Flying Spur has received 600 new parts, with only sun visors, grab handles, armrest and some of the front console and controls carried over from the previous generation. Made available in both four and five seat configurations, the new Flying Spur features redesigned front and rear seats trimmed in natural high-quality leather. The new seats use a softer yet more durable hide unique to Bentley and available in twelve different colours.
