Bentley Adds A Touch of Darkness on Its Flying Spur with the Blackline Spec

The all-new Bentley Flying Spur luxury sedan adds the Blackline specification, following the Continental GT’s success.

The third generation of the Bentley Flying Spur was unveiled earlier this summer. The British car is marketed as a “driver-focussed, four-door model that combines sports sedan agility with modern limousine refinement.”

That being said, Bentley launched Blackline specification this year on the Continental GT and it was a success. The carmaker confirmed that up to 30 percent of all the GT’s bought in 2019 was a Blackline.

Following this popularity, the British manufacturer is offering it on the all-new Flying Spur luxury sedan.

The Blackline specification includes the darkened Flying B mascot, radiator vanes, matrix grilles, side window surrounds, lower door and rear bumper blades, front and rear light bezels, door handles, wing vents and exhaust outlets.

The Bentley Flying Spur Blackline is offered in 17 standard exterior colours with another 13 extended range colours available.

To complete the exterior, the 21” five tri-spoke alloy wheels come standard but can be upgraded to the optional 22” Mulliner Driving Specification wheels.

The all-new 2020 Flying Spur is powered by Bentley’s famous 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine pushing 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque that is paired with a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission. This helps the Grand Tourer reach 100km/h in 3.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 333 km/h.
