The Bentley Flying Spur was first released back in 2005 and had a severe upgrade in 2013. So, it was time for Bentley to launch the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur.
One of the things that you’ll be glad to know is that the testings already began. However, when you look at the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur images, you can almost see the Porsche Panamera.
The truth is that it shouldn’t be a surprise that the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur is using the Panamera’s body. After all, if you recall the first Bentayga prototype, it was using the Audi Q7 body. As if this wasn’t enough, all the three brands are part of the Volkswagen Group.
So, what can you expect from the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur?
2019 Bentley Flying Spur Release Date
While there isn’t an official release date, we believe that the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should be debuted later this year or at the beginning of 2019.
2019 Bentley Flying Spur Price
While there aren’t any official prices yet, we believe that the price of the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should start at about $200,000. However, if you’re looking for the top W12 version, you will have a starting price around $250,000.
2019 Bentley Flying Spur Redesign and Changes
The truth is that the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur comes with a lot of changes.
The first one is the platform that will use – the MSB-F platform that is the same one that the Porsche Panamera uses. In our opinion, the front of the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur will be very similar to the one on the Continental GT. In addition, you can also expect to see a quad headlamp layout featuring some smaller lamps towards the sides. The nose should be lower and the grille beside wider should now be placed lower into the fascia.
The bumper of the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should now look sportier and should include some big side openings.

2019 Bentley Flying Spur Specs
The new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur doesn’t only include a lot of changes in the exterior. The truth is that we are expecting to see a lot of changes under the hood as well. However, the truth is that there aren’t many details available yet and the fact that the Bentley is using a different platform doesn’t make our job easier.
According to most rumors, the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur will share the same engines with the Porsche Panamera. After all, they are part of the same Group. So, the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should come with a 4.0-litre V-8 engine that is already being used in the 2018 Porsche Panamera. This engine should be able to produce 550 of horsepower and 567 pounds per feet of torque.
Another option that you may have is the 2.9-litre V-6 engine. While it is not confirmed yet, this engine is able to produce 450 of horsepower and 415 pounds per feet of torque.
Since Bentley already started offering diesel engines with the Bentayga, it’s perfectly natural that the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur also has a diesel engine option. In case this happens, the engine should be the 4.0-litre V-8 engine that is able to produce 429 of horsepower and 664 pounds per feet of torque.
The last option in terms of the engines for the new 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should be the top W-12 engine that is capable of producing 600 of horsepower and 664 pounds per feet of torque.
Since electric vehicles are a huge trend right now, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if Bentley also has the option for a hybrid drivetrain. In case this turns into reality, the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should come with an electric motor that should work in conjunction with a 2.9-litre V-6 engine. This drivetrain should be capable ofproducing 462 of horsepower and 516 pounds per feet of torque.
2019 Bentley Flying Spur Interior
In terms of the interior, we believe that the cabin of the 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should be very similar to the cabin of the Porsche Panamera. However, it should also include some details of the EXP10 Speed 6 concept. In case we are right, you can expect to see a luxurious, elegant, and sporty cabin with a wide instrument cluster. You should also get a tall center console that should separate the front seats.
The 2019 Bentley Flying Spur should also integrate the Bentley Rotating Display which is a 12.3 inches touchscreen placed in the center stack.
