That the next More distinctive look for new Flying Spur will be Bentley’s final model before the Crewe company reinvents itself for a new era of electrification is timely.

Next year will be Bentley’s centenary and a suitable occasion to raise the luxury game in a new epoch, one led by its first electric model.

Bentley Flying Spur

Bentley says that since its launch in 1919, it has been in “relentless pursuit of both luxury and performance”.

Not only can an electric-powered car meet those goals in modern times, but a near-silent, yet potent, system of electric motors is even likely to exceed any former benchmarks for refinement.

Little wonder that not only Bentley but also Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin are striving to lead the way on electrification in the super-luxury car segment.
