For anyone in the market for a new Bentley Flying Spur, you many want to wait until the end of 2019 to purchase the First Edition variant which will be revealed for the first time at the Elton John Foundation Gala on July 24. The first Bentley Flying Spur First Edition is set to be auctioned off, with all the proceeds heading to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Obviously even a standard Bentley Flying Spur is something to get excited over, but the First Edition comes with some interested upgrades that make this version a collectible item for many years to come. Production of the First Edition will start at the end of 2019 and last for just 12 months.
The First Edition features a unique exterior badge, a Union Jack flag with the numeral 1 in the center, First Edition winged emblems embroidered into the headrests, and fancy tread plates that show the Union Jack flag with First Edition written in the middle.
Bentley’s rotating display allowing you to switch from a modern touchscreen display, or a set of three classic analog dials will be included in these limited edition Flying Spur’s. Included is the Touring specification which adds lane assist, night vision, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist. The interior has a configurable mood lighting and a selection of single and dual finish veneer options, together with a panoramic sunroof.
The Flying Spur is powered by a 6.0 liter twin turbo W12 engine that produces 626 horsepower and 605 pound-foot of torque that is partnered with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission and is equipped with all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering. The Flying Spur can do 0-60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 207 MPH.
