Seems like a return to form for Bentley’s limousine.

If you’re lucky enough in life to be sizing-up something like a Bentley for daily use, there’s an appeal to the Bentley ‘B’ over something like a Rolls-Royce or a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The Bentley brand is famous for its driver-foc— sorry, driver-involved experience behind the wheel, and even though the upcoming Flying Spur limousine will most likely be used predominantly as a chauffeur-driven affair, Crewe are doing their best to imbue it with half-decent dynamics, as befits a Bentley.

To that end, the new-generation Flying Spur will offer All-Wheel Steering for the first time, designed to enhance stability when cruising and agility at lower speeds. High-speed manoeuvres will see the rear wheels move in the same direction as the front wheels, while low-speed manoeuvres will have the rear wheels move in the opposing direction to the front wheels to essentially ‘shrink’ the big Bentley when parking.

The All-Wheel Steering will of course be paired with the all-wheel drive & ‘Bentley Dynamic Ride’ adaptive ride system, the latter of which Bentley says will “combat cornering forces” to minimise body roll that “might otherwise disturb occupants.”

The new-generation Flying Spur will follow the lead of the Continental GT and offer new levels of technology and craftsmanship, wrapped in “segment-defining” levels of performance and refinement. Bentley is confident that their new Flying Spur will resume its role as the “world’s best luxury Grand Touring saloon” when it arrives in a few weeks time. Though to be honest, the only fly in the Flying Spur ointment at this point is the car that the Flying Spur shares its underpinnings with: The Porsche Panamera.
