2023 Bentley Flying Spur Speed First Look Review: The W12 Lives On



It perhaps seems odd to add even remotely sporty touches to a classy sedan like the Flying Spur, but Bentley has done so in a way that stops short of coming across as crass. The imposing Bentley Flying Spur Speed exterior features subtle Speed enhancements like dark-tinted headlights and taillights, along with a darkened grille. The lower wing plays host to Speed badges, and the standard 22-inch wheels come in finishes that include Dark Tint, silver-painted, or Gloss Black. An optional 22-inch wheel design in either Gloss Black or Pale Brodgar Satin is available.Buyers seeking an even more emotive look can select the Blackline Specification or the Bentley Styling Specification. The latter features a front splitter, side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a trunk spoiler in carbon fiber.As ever, the Bentley Flying Spur Speed’s colors are extensive. Buyers can choose from a massive selection of blacks, blues, reds, greens, and so much more. Some of the more vivid hues include Kingfisher by Mulliner (a light blue), Apple Green, Bentayga Bronze, and St James Red. However, the darker trim also works a treat with some subtler colors, such as Ice and Arctica by Mulliner.Options include a panoramic tilt and slide sunroof and an illuminated Flying B radiator mascot in a Gloss Black finish.
