This will be the very first Bentley features all-wheel steering enhancing stability at cruising speeds and agility around town. During high-speed manoeuvres, the electronic system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels, making overtaking and lane-changes more assured. All-wheel steering also means no compromise between high-speed confidence and low-speed convenience.
Like every Flying Spur of recent times, the third incarnation features all-wheel drive for optimum traction. For the first time, drive is supplied only to the rear wheels in standard road conditions giving classic sports sedan handling characteristics. If any slip is detected, the system can instantly send drive to the front wheels providing active all-wheel drive, fully automatically.
The all-new Flying Spur is a ground-up development that pushes the boundaries of technology and craftsmanship to deliver segment-defining levels of performance and refinement. Owing only its historic name to the preceding model, the four-door sedan will deliver an unparalleled touring experience for the driver and passengers.
