    Today, the third-generation Flying Spur was caught being tested in Sweden. Like the previous two generations, it will remain Continental-based. It will be powered by the 6.0L W12 which produces 626 horsepower, but a plug-in hybrid version is also planned. It will enter production in the fall of 2018.

    It's great that it finally has a proper RWD proportion, thanks to the new Porsche based MSB platform instead of the old Audi one.

    This car seems to pack more mean style than elegance in its design. Not as many rounded lines. I do like the design of this Bentley.

    I agree. It looks posh but could still kick your teeth in. It's "Raffles the Gentleman Thug" in car form.

    Isn't that the point of high performance Bentley models nowadays? Basically a fist wrapped in velvet with some of the power numbers they are pushing out of that W12?

    Looks more like the Mulsanne now.

    You know, I just remembered something. I said this new Flying Spur has very few elegant lines to it. Well, this newer Bentley kind of reminds me of the old Bentley Arnage from the late 1990s and early 2000s. This is still a mean luxury car.

    Oh my word. Low and wide and sleek and sexy. Now that's what a luxury car should look like.
