(Crewe, June 30, 2022) Bentley Motors is proud to reveal that the Bentley Continental GT Speed and Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid have won Best of the Best awards from luxury magazine, Robb Report.
For 34 years, Robb Report’s Best of the Best awards have awarded those who have stood apart from their peers for their exceptional craftsmanship, extraordinary attention to detail, and relentless pursuit of perfection in their field. With those attributes in mind, Robb Report’s Best of the Best awards
have honored the Bentley Continental GT Speed Grand Tourer and the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid as the Best Interior.
The Continental GT Speed is the ultimate performance-based interpretation of Bentley’s definitive Grand Tourer and the most dynamic road vehicle in Bentley’s 103-year history. With additional performance and agility provided by Electronic All-Wheel Steering, electronic limited-slip differential and an upgraded version of the 6.0-litre W12 TSI engine which produces 650 HP, this Bentley still maintains the luxury, usability and comfort that customers have come to expect from the Bentley lineup – creating an award-winning Grand Tourer.
The interior of the Flying Spur Hybrid showcases Bentley’s expertise in creating a modern cabin of unrivalled luxury and innovation. Utilizing the extensive specification offering, customers can choose between a selection of 15 (five standard and ten optional) leather colors and eight different veneers to create an individual specification. Stitching and emblems can also be specified in blind or contrast colors, as well as the option of contrast piping to the seat covers – reminiscent of the original Flying Spur from the 1950s.
Building on the company’s heritage, Bentley’s craftsmanship also continues to evolve, delivering contemporary features such as 3D leather door panels and lofted diamond quilting to the seats (included in the Mulliner Driving Specification). Certified as the most efficient model in Bentley’s history, the Flying Spur Hybrid has a combined range of 500 miles (805 km) with a pure electric range of 26 miles (41 km).
“Recognizing both the Bentley Continental GT Speed and the Flying Spur Hybrid with the Robb Report Best of the Best honors confirms the breadth of extraordinary vehicles available from Bentley,” said Christophe Georges, President and CEO of Bentley Americas. “The GT Speed is the pinnacle of power and performance, and the Flying Spur Hybrid establishes our progress toward full electrification of the Bentley line up later this decade.”
“The fact that the Bentley Continental GT Speed was named the 2022 Robb Report Car of the Year and has now added our Best Grand Tourer title to its list of accomplishments is a testament to the model’s combination of sublime power, handling and interior sophistication,” says Paul Croughton, Robb Report’s editor in chief. “Without question, it sets a new benchmark for the class.”
