Bentley is completing its new driver-focused S range with the launch of the new Flying Spur S, bringing extra dimensions of increased dynamic ability, dramatic visual presence and heightened aural drama to further enhance Bentley’s pinnacle four-door sedan. This is the first time that Bentley’s historic ‘S’ badge has been applied to a Hybrid product and is another step towards Beyond100, Bentley’s vision of the future and sustainable pathway forwards. The Bentley Flying Spur has long been feted for its ability to engage the driver without compromising passenger comfort. As with the recently launched Continental GT S and GT S Convertible, the new Flying Spur S models focus on the pleasure of driving – but with the added choice between 4.0-litre V8 or V6 Hybrid powertrains. Bentley customers now have a clear choice, with the comfort-oriented Flying Spur Azure emphasising ‘Wellbeing behind the Wheel’, or the new Flying Spur S models expanding the visual, tactile and aural enhancements to the driving experience.

Bentley Motors today unveiled its plans to become a global leader in sustainable luxury mobility by announcing further details of its Beyond100 strategy. Bentley promises to deliver truly sustainable luxury by reinventing every aspect of the business.

The announcement underscores Bentley's plans to provide exceptional mobility for the next century and to transform itself within a decade from the world's largest manufacturer of twelve-cylinder gasoline engines to a manufacturer of vehicles entirely without combustion engines. The company is reinventing itself as a pioneer of sustainable luxury mobility.

The aim is to redefine the meaning of segment A for European customers in order to fully satisfy their needs and desires, demonstrating that the cars traditionally identified as ""utilitarian"" can be distinctive and characterized by a unique design.
