The Flying Spur was redesigned for the 2020 model year so 2021 brings only minor tweaks. Chief among them is a new optional four-seat configuration, which replaces the rear bench seat with two buckets with a fixed center console that runs the entire length of the sedan’s cabin. Elsewhere, a new steering wheel design provides more access to the car’s driver-assistance features. New wood trim inserts are available for the rear door panels, and rear-seat picnic tables are an option. The interior can now be ordered with either a carbon-fiber trim or a machined metal finish called Côtes de Genève.
All Flying Spurs come with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic, all-wheel drive, and a powerful twin-turbocharged engine. The entry-level model is powered by a 542-hp V-8 but we’d suggest upgrading to the 626-hp W-12 engine. With the 12-cylinder under the hood, the Flying Spur never wants power; in fact, it can show its taillights to many a top-tier sports car in a drag race.
