By CARSIFU | 22 July 2019

LONDON: Bentley will announce the arrival of the Flying Spur First Edition at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Gala, where it will be auctioned in support of the fund-raising charity at the inaugural Midsummer Party, Picozzi’s Villa Dorane, in the French Riviera, on July 24.

The Flying Spur First Edition, limited to just 12 months of production, has an acceleration rate of 0-100kph in just 3.8 seconds.

It features an active all-wheel drive system and all-wheel steering that ensures maximum surefootedness.

It has a state-of-the-art W12 engine mated to a 8-speed ZF dual-clutch transmission.

This limited edition model will display a First Edition exterior badge and a First Edition Fascia badge – a Union Jack flag with the numeral 1 in the centre; a choice of First Edition Bentley Winged Emblems embroidered into the headrests; and First Edition treadplates – presenting the Union Jack flag with First Edition written through the centre.

The electronic Flying B mascot, undoubtedly one of the most iconic elements of the new model, has been exquisitely redesigned and is featured for the first time since 1959. The wings illuminate and the mascot deploys electronically when the owner approaches and unlocks the car.

One truly distinctive feature is the Bentley Rotating Display, which enables switching between technology and classic design, allowing you to choose either. A technologically progressive touchscreen display, controlling apps, media and vehicle systems; a clean and beautifully veneered fascia; or three classic analogue dials – one for temperature, one which is a compass, and one which is a journey timer (chronograph). So you can take a technology break if you want to switch off at any time.

The Touring Specification enhances every journey by the fitting of cutting-edge systems, including lane assist, night vision, head-up display and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist.

New wheel designs add to the perfect proportions of this luxury sedan with 22 inch Mulliner Driving Specification alloy wheels included in the First Edition, resulting in an assertive, contemporary look with unparalleled levels of execution in the detail.

There is also a panoramic sunroof, where the front panel tilts and slides rearwards over the top of the fixed panel to open.
