All-New Bentley Flying Spur Global Reveal Taking Place June 11

Bentley has announced that its third generation Flying Spur will be unveiled on Tuesday, June 11 at 11:00 BST (6:00 AM EST), and in order to mark the occasion, they’ve also released footage from a high-speed test.

The video even provides us with the car’s soundtrack, although we don’t know which engine powers that particular prototype. It’s been reported that the all-new Flying Spur will be available in at least three powertrain configurations.

This will also be Bentley’s first ever model to feature All-Wheel Steering, which is said to enhance both stability at cruising speeds, as well as agility around town. During high-speed maneuvers, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels, aiding overtaking and lane-changing.

Also for the first time ever, power will be supplied only to the rear wheels in typical road conditions. However, if any slip is detected, the all-wheel drive system will send power to the front wheels automatically, for optimum traction.

Another novelty for the Flying Spur is its Dynamic Ride system, which changes suspension stiffness on-demand in order to minimize body roll, leaving occupants feeling posh and secure at all times.

“Quite simply, the world’s leading luxury automotive company is intending to create the world’s best luxury Grand Touring sedan when the all-new Flying Spur is revealed in just a few weeks’ time,” read the official press release.

Since its announcement, we’ve learned that the upcoming Flying Spur will also boast 3D textured leather upholstery and a retractable hood ornament.
