This is the new bentley continental flying spur yes and this is my driver for brit co i do for britta young but thank you mate yeah i’m good thanks are great so this thing starts from a hundred and sixty five thousand pounds though it’s not on sale yet but if you’re interested in the continental gt coupe a you click on the pop-up banner up there follow the link

Below the video you can save an average of fourteen thousand five hundred pounds of form through carlyle seriously though if you know someone who’s looking to buy a new car or maybe you are just checkout car while alright we all good to go therefore it’s you cool what a treat this is the best intro to any video review i’ve ever done well from my perspective anyway

And the first thing i want to know about the bentley continental flying spur is just how quick it is you see rolls royces are supposed to be swift but bentley’s are meant to be effing fast so i’m about to arrive at a pay are and then my driver is gonna launch it i’m gonna see how quickly gets to 60 miles an hour using my specialist timing equipment never done this

Before from the back seats but let’s give it a go right there and driver nail it and i’ve got a reading people it’s naught to 60 in 4.2 seconds now the car is supposed to do it in 3.7 but to be fair that was uphill we got three people in the car and the surface was really bad i could hear the tires just scrambling for grip but rest assured we were first out of

The gate and got ahead of some other traffic so not too bad i’ll take that it’s a bentley for sure now i’ve done the all-important performance test let’s talk about what this car is like to be driven in so first of all this isn’t actually the best seat to be in it’s that one there behind the front passenger seat because then you can move the front passenger seat

All the way forward but still there’s no problems here for me even though he’s in his normal driving position i’ve got loads of knee room loads of headroom i can just sit back and relax to enjoy this lovely bentley pillow that i’m nestling my head on it’s actually made a suede in fact the leather in here is absolutely gorgeous and quality everywhere is impeccable

Everything’s hand-stitched it’s joyous i love it plus when you’re just driving around it’s super burly quiet unless from bits he puts his foot down then you hear that w12 but it’s never intrusive and of course it’s fully kitted out so and leave my armrest that is the all-important connectivity things there so i can charge mobile devices and cupholders there which

I can use the whole block in here we have a fridge it’s one bottles of water now it would be a bit better if i had some champagne in there but i haven’t ah tell you what every single switch you touch is just glorious it’s like a jewel and the organ stops back in the knurling around the air vents and i like this as well look you’ve got a little area for your mobile

Phone you can just plop it there and then you’ve got this main infotainment screen here it’s exactly the same ease of getting an audi a8 so you can actually detach it look like that which means that thieves can easily detach it so when you park up you’re gonna have to put that in the boots though of course your drive will stay with the car silly me now one of the

Things that bentley’s asked us to do is use the mirror app so you can use a mirror app to check that you’re looking good you know so you’re and span for your arrival at your destination and they actually asked us to do a photo with this and see if we could think of the most creative photo we could do so i did think of one and i didn’t shoot it in this car this is

What i came up with you can always rely on me to do something a little bit annoying can’t you and if you don’t wanna use the mirror function look you’ve got to pop a little vanity mirror there i am definitely vain anyway you can look at the navigation and you can control the media but then you’ve also got this other little screen down here which controls at first

Glance it seems it’s only your seats for the heating the cooling and the rear climate control system but if i press this little button look it pops out once again very similar to one you get in the audi a8 and then i can do various things with it for instance i can operate my c2 the massage function on it let’s go for a nice relaxing massage and i’m gonna definitely

Have the intensity maximum i like a nice and hard guys nice and hard when we’re talking about massages so yeah that’s a really nice piece of key it’s really really weighty and expensive you do something else really cool with this as well so i can operate the blinds if i want to i can do the lighting so i can change the color of the accents but i particularly is

Isn’t the flying ‘bee in the barnett i can actually control it with this i can conceal it if i think it’s a little bit too ostentatious or if want to show off i can reveal it just sort of press of the button and as you see it popping up on the screen it is popping out the cars bonnet it’s things like ah just make the car feel that little bit more special load up

Feature you can control a lot of other things through this as well but i’m gonna bore you with the details i guess a better assess this cause comfort so for a bit say what do you mind putting the kind of comfort mode okay now that’s going to slacken off the suspension and that’s to get air suspension it’s really really good over a bunch you hardly feel them it’s

Maybe not quite as soft as a suspension in a rolls-royce ghost but then it’s bentley it supposed to have a slightly sporty edge but i can tell you this i’m very very comfortable no complaints at all anyway that’s the comfort bit tested now for bricks here would you mind putting the car into sports mode because we’re on quite a twisty road and do you know what mate

If you’d like to get and have some fun i want to see what it’s like in the backseat when the driver goes a little bit crazy so that’s stiffen up the suspension it’s shopping the throttle response increases speed from the gear changes and four ceo apparently is also a part-time rally driver so he knows what it’s doing so you can get decent performance out of this car

And should be able to exploit its handling so it’s a big thing this big heavy car yet we’re going around some tight bends and the core is remaining completely flat and i’ll have confidence in it and for brit co because you’ve got four-wheel drive and it’s quite well balanced and if you gets it wrong we end up in the sea over their head but you know what you cannot

Do this in the back of a rolls royce there’s no way do you know why i thought i’d be getting travel sick bob not that is impressive and i’m i’m a little bit queasy actually on twisty roads even when i’m driving and it’s car war being smooth is strange not making me feel travel sick i think it’s just because doesn’t roll about much it just stays flat in the corners

That’s impressive and good drivin for britain see i thank you okay then let’s continue this review but this time i’ve changed my outfit because i’ve also changed the car so this is in a different colour it’s called sand love the colour and it’s got the black pack on it so you’ve got like black elements on the car in this strip on the bonnet as well whereas the other

One had chrome that one was more elegant this is more sporty just like my outfit now the front of this car is dominated by this girl look it’s massive and it’s got vertical slats which harks back to bentley’s from the late 1950s there’s also blingy crystals in the headlamps as we move around the sides you’ll notice there’s not much of an overhang really you know

This is a long car that makes it look sporty now stanly get 21 inch alloy wheels these 22 you’ve got these be for bentley vent there on the side i say vent it’s actually a fake vent i can’t criticize these strong creases in the bodywork though they’re amazing so the car is actually made out of aluminium it’s really hard to press them into this shape but they’ve

Somehow managed to do it and it does look cool also what’s interesting is this panel the runs from here all the way down the back part of the car is just one piece and it’s the biggest single piece of panel fitted to any car currently on sale let’s move finally around the back and then you’ve got the classic bentley tailpipes they’re they’re not fake there’s two

Actually exhausts in there the back end is really neat once again lots of creases in it and looking good with this black pack on it i love it i think this is a really really sporty looking large saloon in fact if you click on the pop-out ban out there which would you rather have this bentley flying spur or a rolls-royce ghost oh decisions decisions welcome to the

Interior of the bentley continental flying spur and it’s just as glorious as the outside the design is very similar to that in the continental gt however there are a few differences for instance you have what’s known as texas style evans in the center rather than the bullseye design and the center console is slightly lower as well but i do like the way that it’s

Designed to look like it’s floating i love it i love been the interiors though i’m a bit biased i mean quality in here i mean it’s almost childish to talk about it but everything is super super lovely i mean there’s leather everywhere in this car i love the wood as well i don’t normally say that but the ward looks good and then there’s this metal strip that runs

Around the car and all the detailing like the metallic bits the knurling here on this particular car that bentley clocked the feel of the steering wheel’s glorious as well also the carpets are so thick that it makes me want to drive barefoot please the only thing i don’t like is the fact that these buttons just remind me of those in an a3 there they’re identical

Also we’ve got digital dolls which i kind of wish that this had analog dolls but they do look cool and of course there’s a lot more functionality with the digital dolls in fact this system is pretty much identical to the virtual cockpit you gain out is it’s just got some bentley graphics on it that brings me onto the main infotainment system which is a huge wide

Screen which is very similar to the system in a porsche panamera and it’s generally alright though some of the icons can be a bit hard to hit while you’re driving along and the navigation is ok and it comes with apple carplay and android auto as standard however it’s not quite as good as bmws idrive in fact if you click on the pop-up button up there you can watch

My full detailed review of the 760li and that brings me onto this car specs as well as the two digital displays you get reversing camera and a 360 degree top-down camera there’s also various technology to stop you crushing into things and people when you’re driving through town as standard to get a bose sound system but you cannot grow to this bang & olufsen

System which has 1500 watts and 16 speakers not loud enough for you sir well you can then upgrade further to the name system which has 2200 watts and twenty two speakers in fact that is the loudest stereo fitted to any car in the world ever i’m talking about as fitted by manufacturer not aftermarket system as people if you want to make the interior of this car even

More lovely then upgrade to the malina pack so that includes sports pedals a jeweled fuel filler cap diamond quilting on the seats and a new diamond quilting 3d effect leather in the door panels i have never seen anything like that before it’s rather cool now let’s talk about functionality here in the front so this cars got a wireless charging pad which is great

For me and my samsung however you’ve got an old phone then you do have two usb charging points they’re neatly hidden actually i like that and there’s a 12 volt socket there and a proper cigarette lighter yeah writing your cuban cigars then there’s the layout so it’s all very simple to operate the climate control because the actual temperature is in the dials here

Then you’ve got the cooling and heating for the seats and the seats are very very comfortable there’s loads of electrical adjustment in them so you’re gonna be able to get comfy with your big or small and there’s plenty of adjustment in the steering wheel once again it’s electric then there’s the practicality so decent sized door bins look i can fit that in there

And there’s a neat little place just down here on the other side as well where you can keep their big bentley key where are the cupholders though well don’t worry they’re hidden under here there they are quite deep so that’s quite all coffee cup and that just fits but there is risk with swans that you’ll just end up removing the lid when you’re trying to remove the

Cup maybe onto the glovebox it’s not that big but it is refrigerated which means you can keep your drinks cool right let’s talk about this cause practicality now i love how you open the boot by pressing the be supercool and as you can see the size is all right the opening is quite large you have this metallic scuff plate here so when having to lift things over the

Lip don’t damage your paintwork it’s got nice that can’t be in here yeah it’s very thick for a boot carpeting and you’ve got some tie-down points you’ve got 12 volts socket as well under here there’s not much apart from your stuff and you’ll notice there’s oh the fridge eats into the boot space in fact boot capacity is about 15 percent smaller than a rolls-royce

Ghost and mercedes maybachs oh dear and that brings me on to five annoying things about the bentley continental flying spur if you want fully auto cruise control then you’re gonna have to pay extra for it which is a bit cheeky on a car that costs this much when it’s standard on a twitter also options are very expensive it’s all too easy to spec this car up way beyond

200,000 pounds and then this car is hand-built and everything but the way that metal strip on the dash doesn’t quite line up with the one that goes in the door he’s really doing my head in even from here the new dual clutch automatic gearbox isn’t quite as smooth or pulling away from a standstill as an old fashioned torque converter auto now admittedly i’m humming

This up a bit to just illustrate to you the night before however when you’re driving along its speeding you’re accelerating then he suddenly lift off the thrall it does sometimes give you a weird jolt which is a bit uncharacteristic for a luxury car well you think you may be able to lift this up for some extra storage space now it doesn’t budge at all but you can

Slide it forward but then there’s a problem with that as i in a straight now while there is a middle seat here in the back it’s certainly not bentley comfortable yeah you’re gonna resent the people sat in these two outer seats thankfully this car has plenty of cool features to help make up for all this here’s five better for being distracted by modern technology

While you’re driving or why not have a digital detox the press of a button you can rotate this around to some old-fashioned dials or if you want to just get rid of it entirely the flying ‘bee bonnet mascot took two years to design and you can get it with crystal inlays in the wings and actually illuminate at night how cool is that the flights burger gets the

Same breaks as a continental gt and that means it has 420 millimeter iron discs at the front which are the large is fitted to any production car this is the fastest saloon car in the world with a top speed of 207 miles an hour and it does that in sixth gear seventh and eighth gear are just for improved economy yet rea we are steering a standard which means the

Back wheels turn in the opposite direction as the front’s when you’re going slowly to make this more maneuverable and then again the same direction as the front’s when you gain faster to improve stability you also get active anti-roll bars which decoupled when you’re going along as straight help make things nice and comfortable at the moment you can only get the

Bentley continental flying spur with one engine but what an engine it is it’s a 6-litre w12 with 635 horsepower 900 newton meters of torque and there it is behold look at it now if that’s a little bit too powerful for you there will be a twin turbo four-litre v8 with 550 horsepower and 770 newton meters of torque and if you’re a bit worried about the environment

And want to improve your economy there’ll also be a v6 plug-in hybrid with 450 horsepower and 700 newton meters of torque now what happens when you give you a show for the day off and you’ve got a cruise around hang yourself i mean this is a big long car 5.3 meters it’s gonna be too awkward to drive but wait a minute we’ve got very wheel steering as standard so

Actually it’s very very maneuverable oh gosh that’s taken a lot of strain at driving in town i can tell you denied now round here actually so you almost got crushed into by bloomin lorry whoo yeah that would have cost you a lot of money that would have mr. vi not sure if you’ve got the insurance for that yeah i have got to come on my car and you have been filmed

Don’t worry though it’s just for entertainment it’s not for prosecution purposes anyway i’m looking for my hotel it’s a travel lodge where’s the travel lodge all these just look a little bit too cheap for me wait a minute is that tiffin adele so what happens when you got a long journey and you’ve really can’t be asked to drive yourself well what you have to do

Is engage the automatic cruise control which will keep your safe distance from the car in front and do the steering for you however if you take your hands off the wheel it can tell there’s no resistance from your hands and it will eventually disengage but i have a solution you see these bentley ashtrays they’re solid metal so a really heavy and if you witch them

In the steering wheel like that provides enough resistance that the car thinks you’re holding the steering wheel so it doesn’t disengage so you can just sit back and relax and enjoy the drive still working still working still working yeah don’t do this at home it’s just for illustration purposes anyway for a bit today you’re fired when you finally get on to an

Interesting piece of road you’re gonna want to take the controls back yourself because this is actually a surprisingly fun car to drive for such a big luxury saloon so i’m going to switch it into sports mode and there’s a noticeable difference between comfort and sport in terms of the throttle response the steering way and especially the suspension it’s amazing

How much it grips up to the corners now one of the reasons for that is that bentley has actually moved the engine slightly back and it’s shorter than the old w12 so the balance is better than before also when you get in sports mode it really limits the amount of power that goes to the front wheel so it’s effectively rear-wheel drive i reckon this thing will drift

But i can’t do that today anyway one that is put into bentley mode which actually works out what i’m doing on the roads like and it gives you the best of both worlds between comfort and sportiness i can just waft along or hammer it depending on my mood however if you want to hammer it a lot you’re probably going to be better off with the continental gt it’s just

A little bit more sporty and if you can look on the pop-out banner then the top-ranked on the screen you watch my video review of it so then what’s my final verdict on the bentley continental flying spur should you avoid it consider it shortlist it will just go right ahead and buy it well if you want a luxury car that’s brilliant to drive but also brilliant to be
