Style King Bentley Bentayga Goes In for a Facelift

42 Million Spot Welds Later, Bentley Mulsanne Production Fades Away

2020 Bentley Flying Spur Review: Superior comfort and performance

What can I say? It’s a Bentley. It’s lovely. The Bentley new Flying Spur is a luxury super sedan. It packs a larger engine than most sports cars, has four heavenly seats, and glides over the road like soap on a shower floor. This example costs $279,000, so I would expect nothing less. This sedan is supremely comfortable, and yet it packs a powerful punch. Bentley says the W12 engine lets it hit 207 mph though I had no reason to verify that claim. Going fast means arriving at a destination sooner...
