In the spirit of celebrating its 100th birthday, Bentley pulled the wraps off the 2020 Bentley Flying Spur. Like other Bentley cars for sale in Dubai, the new Flying Spur is the pinnacle of luxury, sophisticated and of course, ravishing. On the other hand, Rolls Royce is still working on the latest iteration of Rolls Royce Ghost which will go head to head with the new Flying Spur. With the release of the latest Bentley flying Spur and the spy shots of Rolls Royce Ghost, a comparison between those two is a must.
Currently in its third generation, the 2020 Flying Spur employs an all-new platform and its new design philosophy that it borrows from the Continental GT. It has an all-aluminium body with exemplary bold looks and a strong character. The new Rolls Royce Ghost will be built on the latest ‘Architecture of Luxury’ by Rolls Royce. This is an all-aluminium framework which will allow the vehicle to be lighter and more customized while increasing body stiffness by 30%.
The front of the new Flying Spur is highlighted by a massive grille surrounded with a chrome layer. As much as we can tell from the spy shots of the 2020 Rolls Royce Ghost, it will have a bigger grille as well with a new pair of lights.
The new Flying Spur has an electronically activated and illuminated flying B hood ornament on the top of the bonet which is a first for Bentley. However, Rolls Royce has had a 3D hood ornament (Spirit of Ecstasy) since forever and in a way, Bentley seems to be following its footsteps.
Rolls Royce offers optional 21-inch wheels with the Ghost whereas this Bentley sits on top of 21-inch wheels with extended arches which enhance its athletic stance.
Bentley has put a 6.0L twin-turbo W12 powerhouse at its core which cranks out 626 hp with 900Nm of torque just like Bentley’s most powerful SUV, Bentayga Speed. This Bentley is also equipped with an active all-wheel drive system, 8-speed automatic transmission and a rear-wheel steering system. Similarly, the Rolls Royce Ghost will also offer a twin turbo V12 engine with an 8-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive. Though, Rolls Royce has always had its focus on luxury and a boosted performance is another plus point for them.
One of the most interesting features of the new Bentley is the Dynamic Ride Control system. This is powered by a 48-volt system and allows a smooth and stable ride even on difficult terrain. Now, we can’t say for sure if the new Rolls Royce will have any comparable feature but nothing can be said with surity till it is released.
The new Flying Spur has seats covered in 3D diamond quilted leather on the door panels. Moreover, it gets a 12.3 inch infotainment screen and a rotating sensor control. On the other hand, the interior of Rolls Royce Ghost is still under wraps but this is where the Rolls Royce can easily have its advantage. Rolls Royce is known for its world-class interior appointments and posh driving feel. So, if the new one is anything like its predecessors, it can easily sit above Bentley in this area.
Bentley and Rolls Royce cars for sale in Dubai are some of the most expensive ones and hence carry a lot of expectations. Both these cars will give a tough competition to each other where Rolls Royce has expertise over luxury and Bentley over performance. Who do you think will do better?
