New 2021 Bentley Flying Spur carbon fiber options designed to enhance its aerodynamics
The 2021 Bentley Flying Spur will be available in a new specification for the 2021 model year in addition to a host of already-announced upgrades. The carbon fiber accents and detailing are designed to give the world's fastest production sedan.
The hand-crafted model is available with a high gloss carbon fiber. The features include a front bumper splitter, side skirts with metallic Bentley badges, rear diffuser, and trunk lid spoiler.
These exterior components have been strength-tested while being optimized for minimal weight and designed to enhance the car's aerodynamics.
The side skirts include a three-dimensional Bentley badge that was developed exclusively for the specification and designed to minimize the risk of air bubbles forming during the lacquer coating process, which still providing a faceted aesthetic.
Bentley also tested the glossy accents to ensure that they would minimize any effect on a number of the super luxury sedan's advanced technology systems from the parking distance control to radar and antennae for on-board communications and entertainment.
Additionally, the parts were put thought durability tests including overall vehicle tests of 100,000 km - to abuse testing such as wading, kerb strikes, and rough roads. Rig testing in Bentley's Quality lab assesses performance through the rigors of vibration, thermal cycling, point loading, and impacts.
The model, which was new for the 2019, continues to come with all-wheel drive with torque-vectoring technology, and a 48-volt electric anti-roll bar system.
The Styling Specification is available to order through Bentley's network of retailers, and can be specified when a new car is ordered or retrofitted at a later date to enhance a customer's existing car.
Bentley has further enhanced many of its other vehicles for the 2021 model year including the Bentayga, which has gotten a thorough mid-cycle upgrade. The company also recently celebrated the last Mulsanne to come off the line. The 2021 Continental also received a few upgrades.
