Who would have thought that Bentley would ever make a 6 cylinder car? But they have! And I must say they are doing a great job. Whenever I see a Flying Spur I always turn my head for a closer look - no matter what age it is. There is something very appealing to the size and glamour of the car as I see one pass by. But this Flying Spur is a hybrid, which means it can move silently along. Autocar's test was the top class Mulliner model. Its interior is utterly lavish and a place where I would want to be - whether in front driver's or passenger seat or even stretching out in the back seat. (The legroom is very good). The roadholding and the handling is very good too. But even though the acceleration is a bit slower than other Flying Spurs it's still quick enough. See the figures above.
0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, 0-100 in 10.2 and 0-120 mph in 14.4 are extremely good for a car weighing 2596 kilograms (5723 pounds). I love it!

I have one question: Under the heading Intelligent Cruise Control, what does "Steering intervention to prevent changing lanes into the path of an overtaking car" mean? Does is mean that the car will swerve out of danger automatically? It's completely new to me.

Safe driving from Flt 158.

I'm okay! I managed to buy Autocar yet again today (Thursday).
The Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid is super quick for such a large saloon.
I will report back with further thoughts of the car.
In the meantime, I share some thoughts about the Porsche 911 Turbo S when I finish reading last week's magazine.

I'm noticing that no one here is a fan of the Flying Spur Hybrid. However I see that Car & Driver tested one recently. Does anyone have the performance figures?
Autocar's new magazine has just gone on sale today. And they have an 8 page full road test of the hybrid car. So if anyone has their performance figures I would be very grateful for those too.

Very best regards from Flt158

Even Bentley experiments with this hybrid junk now. Funny.
