Bentley’s Flying Spur has been named Best Luxury Car in the 2015 Telegraph Car Awards.The result, which was announced at an event in central London today, was decided by members of the public who voted for their favourite cars via the Telegraph’s Motoring website.
Kevin Rose, Bentley Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, commented: “Bentley is the most successful luxury car brand in the world. Every Bentley is handcrafted by our skilled and dedicated team in Crewe, which makes each car a true luxury possession. On behalf of Bentley Motors and our 3,800 colleagues, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that voted for us.”
Steve Huntingford, Cars Editor at The Telegraph, added: “The latest Flying Spur manages to feel both traditional and modern, plus it’s as enjoyable to drive as it is to be chauffeured in. It’s easy to see why Telegraph readers and our panel of judges rate it so highly.”
The Flying Spur W12 is the fastest road-going luxury sedan in the world, powered by Bentley’s mighty 6.0-litre, twin turbo engine. It develops 625 PS, sprinting from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, while a new variable displacement system allows the engine to run at part throttle on six of its 12 cylinders – reducing emissions and fuel consumption with no impact on refinement or performance. The athletic design of the new Flying Spur combines traditional Bentley styling cues with a dynamic stance and contemporary details.
Designed for comfort and refinement as well as effortless performance, the Flying Spur has benefitted from a suite of enhancements for 2015. The exquisite cabin gains modern and tactile new features to maintain Bentley’s reputation for interior style and usability, such as an on-board WiFi hotspot system, making the Flying Spur the ultimate luxury car for work or relaxation on the move. Complementing the feature upgrades are new paint colours in the hues of Marlin, Camel and Jetstream and the addition of Shortbread and Camel hides to the extensive range of leathers.
