2022 Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid
During the 100 years since bespoke automaker Bentley began, the company built a reputation for luxurious handcrafted cars that also pack a performance punch — a punch that typically came from a powerful 8- or 12-cylinder engine. These vehicles were created to honor the words of the company’s founder, Walter Owen (W.O.) Bentley, who wished to build “a fast car, a good car, the best in class.” In the intervening century this goal has not changed, although the means to achieve it has — the days of large gas-powered engines are numbered. As the company embraces its “Beyond100” strategy, the goal is to have all Bentleys electrified by 2023, the first battery-electric Bentley by 2025, and the entire lineup running electric-only by 2030. The all-new 2022 Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid is a critical next step along this path.
