The Bentley Flying Spur First Edition further boasts a redesigned electronic Flying B mascot that deploys automatically, wings illuminated, when the owner approaches and unlocks the car.
Other highlights include a “technologically progressive touchscreen display” called Bentley Rotating Display, configurable interior mood lighting, single or dual finish veneers, 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof with tilt and slide front panel, and a bunch of safety features like lane assist, night vision, head-up display and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist.
