Bentley calls for its automobiles do an incredible deal. The truth is, there’s a fairly robust argument that the Bentayga SUV has the broadest remit of any automobile on the planet: it needs to be sporting, luxurious, able to an extremely excessive prime velocity and likewise be an off-roader.
Not less than, for the Flying Spur, there’s no want for the off-road requirement. However the anticipated prime velocity is larger and the accepted consolation stage of a luxurious saloon should be larger, too. And rolling consolation, or trip high quality, is, presumably because of having a prime velocity that begins with a two, one thing the Flying Spur has typically struggled with up to now.
This time, then, they’ve thrown completely the whole lot on the automobile: lively rear steer, three-chamber air suspension, adaptive dampers, 48V electrics for lively anti-roll bars with distinctive torque ranges and really fast responses. Neglect, for a second, the acres of wooden, leather-based and aluminium that’ll sit inside each Flying Spur. You’ll be able to take it as learn that they’ll be constructed and introduced fantastically.
It’s the mixed weight of all these luxurious trappings, although, that the superior should handle, and handle nicely, if Bentley is to lastly unleash the potential to make an especially quick and ultra-comfortable luxurious saloon.
A standard computerized transmission would appear, to me, extra suited to luxurious environs than this automobile’s dual-clutch gearbox, however aside from that, the is all there. And within the present Continental GT and Bentayga, it appears Bentley is aware of easy methods to use it.
