The mate­r­i­al was cre­at­ed “by the team of excep­tion­al crafts­men and women based in Crewe, Eng­land,” Bent­ley said.


Bent­ley is prepar­ing to intro­duce a new ver­sion of its Fly­ing Spur sedan, and the lat­est teas­er pro­vides an idea of the incred­i­ble atten­tion-to-detail that Crewe’s crafts­peo­ple are putting into the new ultra-lux­u­ry car.

Specif­i­cal­ly, Bent­ley said Thurs­day that the new Fly­ing Spur will use a new type of leather uphol­stery with a three-dimen­sion­al dia­mond effect. The com­pa­ny promised that, as ever, the Fly­ing Spur will offer “an unpar­al­leled tour­ing expe­ri­ence for the dri­ver and pas­sen­gers alike.”

Ear­li­er this year, Bent­ley offered up two teasers of the out­side of the new Fly­ing Spur. The car will offer an ornate­ly designed take on the brand’s “Fly­ing B” hood orna­ment, while a sketch revealed that it might have some design cues from the two-door Con­ti­nen­tal GT range. So far Bent­ley has said only that the new car will be ful­ly revealed lat­er this year.

As to oth­er details, it’s fair to assume the fly­ing Spur might use the same touch­screen info­tain­ment sys­tem as the newest Con­ti­nen­tal GT. That car’s pow­er­trains might car­ry over, too; they com­prise a 6.0‑liter twin-tur­bocharged W12 with 626 horse­pow­er and 664 pound-feet of torque and a 4.0‑liter twin-tur­bo V8 good for 542 hp and 568 lb-ft.

The cur­rent ver­sion of the Bent­ley Fly­ing Spur was revealed at the 2013 Gene­va Motor Show. The intro­duc­tion of the new mod­el comes in the year of Bent­ley’s 100th anniver­sary.
