The most efficient model
The introduction of the Flying Spur Hybrid establishes a line of Bentley hybrids for the first time, underscoring Bentley’s commitment to becoming a state-of-the-art carbon-neutral automaker and a world leader in luxury sustainable mobility. Once certified, the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid is now available to order in the UK and Europe, with other markets coming soon.

Flying Spur proves that hybridization compromises neither luxury nor performance. With an imperceptible combination of internal combustion engine and electric motor, a refined serenity is offered whatever the mode or style of driving.
The combination of a highly efficient motor and an advanced electric motor offers the same flexibility and functionality as the W12 and V8 engines offered today, for a responsive, engaging and extremely refined experience.
The new powertrain combines a 2.9-liter V6 petrol engine with an advanced electric motor, offering a total of 544 hp and 750 Nm of torque, 95 hp more than the Bentayga Hybrid. The new Flying Spur becomes the most efficient Bentley to date, capable of covering over 800km with a full tank.
With great power reserves, superior torque and quick throttle response, the latest hybrid model leaves little room for the Flying Spur V8 in acceleration, going from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.3 seconds. The new powertrain offers a significant reduction in fuel consumption while maintaining the true Bentley character of refined and effortless performance.
