Bentley presented the new Flying Spur in June and now introduces a new equipment option with the Blackline Specification. For the first time, this option interferes with the familiar look. For this almost all chrome elements on the body are given a black tint. In addition to the grille braces, the matrix radiator grille, the side window frames and the lower design line, which runs from the doors to the rear bumper, this also includes, for the first time, the winged B, which sits on the bonnet as a radiator figure on the bonnet. In addition, the housings of the headlights and taillights were darkened and the door handles, the trims of the air outlets in the front fenders and the exhaust tailpipes were not omitted.
The standard equipment of the vehicles with Blackline Specification includes 21-inch wheels with five triple spokes each. A 22-inch wheel set is also available as an option. Customers can choose from 17 standard colors and 13 special colors for the body. The interior and technology of the Flying Spur aren’t affected by the choice of this £ 3,550 (excl. taxes) expensive option. It remains the case that 15 different leather colors can be combined and rounded off with colored stitchings. Apparently there was also nothing to improve on the 635 hp and 900 newtonmeters of torque of the W12 biturbo engine. Bentley already offers the Blackline Specification for the current Continental GT, for which around 30 percent of all customers now opt.
