The sedan also receives electronic all-wheel steering with the redesign. That should be useful if you're trying to park it. At higher speeds, the rear wheels stay in the same direction as the front wheels to improve stability.

The goal for the model - which follows the Bentley Bentayga and Continental GT in the sales rankings - is to offer sports saloon agility paired with limousine refinement so that it caters to both drivers and those being chauffeured.

In order to keep its heft in check, the Flying Spur is equipped with Bentley's Dynamic Ride System and uses a 48-volt system to control the car's adaptive anti-roll bar.

As for what this all sounds like, there's an adaptive tailpipe control valve with variable position settings. There is no news on when the carmaker will bring the new Flying Spur to India. Standard wheels are 21-inch, but 22-inch Mulliner rims - the biggest yet on a Flying Spur - are available. In back, wrap-around taillights take on the illuminated "B" graphic, and the license plate holder moves to the lower bumper, leaving only the Bentley wings and the word "Bentley" to adorn the decklid.

As with the latest Conti GT, owners can have the very latest in infotainment, or a digital detox of sorts, thanks to an innovative rotating central display with three sides - 1: a veneer section that blends in with the dashboard, 2: a 31.2cm touchscreen and 3: a set of analogue dials. New vents sit alongside modern features like wireless phone charging and USB ports. Switchgear gets bronze detailing, and there's three-dimensional diamond quilted leather in the door, and diamond knurling on the rotary switches. Piano black and wood veneers are available, as well as a dual veneer for an even more bespoke look. Alcantara blinds shield passengers from a harsh sun, interior mood lighting in seven colors shields eyes from the mundane end of the light spectrum.

The seats feature heating, ventilation, multi-mode massage, adjustable bolsters, and top tilt. The standard system has 10 speakers and 650 watts.

Since the vehicle will be so quiet, the sound system is a standard 10-speaker system that can be upgraded to a 16-speaker 1,500-watt Bang & Olufsen setup; or a 19-speaker 2,200-watt Naim system with active bass transducers in the front seats.

Bentley also claims that the new Flying Spur owes only its name to its predecessor, alluding to its new chassis, suspension, W12 engine and 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
