Have Fun Speccing Out Your Perfect Bentley Flying Spur

Configurator

Here's how ours would look.

After posting numerous teasers, Bentley finally showed off the magnificent, new Flying Spur. The British automaker clearly wasn't pulling its punches with the new Flying Spur, which is aimed directly at Rolls-Royce. Under the hood sits a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine producing 626 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph takes just 3.8 seconds and the car tops out at 207 mph.

This is astonishing speed for a large luxury sedan that weighs 5,368 pounds. Bentley hasn't traded luxury for speed either because the new Flying Spur's cabin looks absolutely sumptuous. As you'd expect from a high-dollar luxury sedan, almost every detail on the Flying Spur can be customized and Bentley has already released a configurator so you can build your dream car. We spent some time configuring our dream Flying Spur - here's how it turned out.

The standard paint range includes 17 yawn-inducing shades of black, white, and grey, with a splash of blue and red thrown in. We wanted to go for a more exciting color but the standard St. Jame's Red felt too bright for a Bentley. That's why we went with a more subtle shade called Cricket Ball on Bentley's extended color range. We paired the red paint with the 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels, which we think look fantastic.

Bentley lets you split the interior colors with three different patterns, so we chose 'Colour Split A' with Portland leather as our main color and a Cricket Ball leather as our secondary hide to match the exterior. There are eight wood veneers to choose from and we picked Liquid amber to downplay the reddish tones of our interior.

Bentley hasn't released pricing for the Flying Spur but you can still add all of the available options. We decided to opt for a few optional extras including the Comfort Specification with massaging seats, City Specification with additional safety features, Touring Specification with night vision, contrast stitching, diamond knurling, panoramic roof, illuminated Flying B, Naime audio with 19 speakers, rear seat entertainment, and the Bentley rotating display. How would you configure your dream Flying Spur?
