Bentley's China retailers fully operational, new Flying Spur deliveries begin

BEIJING: Bentley Motors announced that all of its 40 retail outlets in China have fully opened as the country gradually returns to work following the Copvid-19 outbreak in the country.

Meanwhile, the British luxury marque has also begun customer deliveries of its new Grand Touring (GT) Flying Spur with first customer deliveries taking place across Europe and the UK during the first quarter of 2020.

Deliveries have been scheduled to begin in Eastern Markets, North America and the rest of Asia later this year.

The new Flying Spur is said to set a new benchmark for modern luxury GT and represents a perfect fusion of performance-orientated agility with exclusive, four-door, limousine-style comfort.

The new GT, with its extended wheelbase, comes with a choice of 127 unique interior and exterior colours which includes combinations.

In addition, adorning the Flying Spur for the very first time, the electronically-deployed, hood-mounted Flying B mascot seems to be a rather popular option with 50% of buyers opting for this extra.

The cabin gets stylish design lines flowing through the cabin while featuring a world-first three-dimensional diamond-quilted leather door inserts as well as new-designed fluted leather seats for the Mulliner Driving Specification.
