2020 Bentley Flying Spur First Edition Announced As Content-Rich Limited Model

It didn’t take long for Bentley to release the first limited edition model based on the all-new 2020 Flying Spur.

Suggestively named Flying Spur First Edition, it will be built for only 12 months beginning at the end of 2019. Announced at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Gala, where it will be auctioned for fund-raising charity on July 24, the 2020 Bentley Flying Spur First Edition brings a series of subtle exclusive features.

On the outside, it comes with a First Edition badge consisting of a Union Jack flag with the number 1 at the center. Placed on the C-pillars, the badge is also found on the passenger-side dashboard. Passengers will also be made aware of the car’s limited edition nature by the First Edition tread plates, and the First Edition Bentley Winged Emblems embroidered into the headrests. The limited-run model also comes with 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification alloy wheels.

Moving on, the Flying Spur First Edition includes as standard some of the most luxurious interior and exterior features that are usually optional on the regular model. Those include the electronic Flying B hood ornament with illuminated wings, the spectacular Bentley Rotating Display, and the Touring Specification.

The latter brings driving assistance systems such as lane assist, night vision, head-up display and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist. Other standard features include configurable mood lighting, a panoramic sunroof, color-match Alcantara blinds operated electrically, and more.

Obviously, the list of optional features is virtually limitless. Bentley is inviting the owner of the Flying Spur First Edition that will soon be auctioned “to create their own bespoke and completely unique car through Bentley’s exclusive Co-Creation Luxury Service, offered only to a tiny selection of clients.”

Nothing changes under the long and sculpted hood of the Flying Spur, which features a 6.0-liter W12 gasoline engine rated at 635 PS (626 hp) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque. Mated to an eight-speed ZF dual-clutch transmission, the power plant enables a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint of 3.8 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds) and a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).

    I mean I don’t these limited editions from RR or Bentley, can’t their wealthy clientele customize their cars anyway they want? So why bother with the First Edition anyway? A value pack may be, lol.

    • Nordschleife

      Probably because most wealth people has questionable tastes or may they don’t have the eye that they can design something that Bentley can do and people will like. Have you ever seen a car where you might think “i would’ve never put those things together but somehow they just fit? Just my thoughts.

    • bxniels0

      Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. You’d think they’d all be unique anyway. No “off the rack” models. Even Corporates like hotels could still put their logo/insignia on/in them (you may not want the be the second owner, though).

      It’s marketing. All marketing to make the car seem to be that much more special. And it works!

      This isn’t really a “limited edition” in the sense they make a configuration and sell it “as is”. It’s a regular car (with some more optional equipment packed in) which can still be customized any way the customer wants, it just has some extra badges which come at a cost.

      For me, as a prospective customer, it’s really a warning sign saying “stay away from the first year production model”.

  • Bash

    I actually love this one, and I know already that it has the best interior and a state of art dash design.

    • Stigasawuswrecks

      The front section of the interior is one of the best currently. The rear, definitely not. It’s like they just threw a leather bench back there and called it a day.

      • Bash

        It looks and it is better as a four seater.

  • SteersUright

    Beautiful car, much more impressive than anything else in its class. That said, I really don’t like the lighting design nor the oval exhaust tips. Looks cross-eyed in the front and the rear lights look straight off eBay.
