Bentley’s Flying Spur has been named Best Luxury Car in the 2015 Telegraph Car Awards.
The result, which was announced at an event in central London today, was decided by members of the public who voted for their favourite cars via the Telegraph’s Motoring website.
Kevin Rose, Bentley Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, commented: “Bentley is the most successful luxury car brand in the world. Every Bentley is handcrafted by our skilled and dedicated team in Crewe, which makes each car a true luxury possession. On behalf of Bentley Motors and our 3,800 colleagues, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that voted for us.” 
Steve Huntingford, Cars Editor at The Telegraph, added:
"The latest Flying Spur manages to feel both traditional and modern, plus it's as enjoyable to drive as it is to be chauffeured in. It's easy to see why Telegraph readers and our panel of judges rate it so highly."
The Flying Spur W12 is the fastest road-going luxury sedan in the world, sprinting from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, while a new variable displacement system reduces emissions and fuel consumption with no impact on refinement or performance. 
The athletic design of the new Flying Spur combines traditional Bentley styling cues with a dynamic stance and contemporary details.

New style and technology for luxury grand touring
Bentley also unveils a suite of new luxury design upgrades and features to its Continental family of grand tourers in Geneva.
The Bentley Continental GT is refreshed with a complement of new exterior design features, aimed at sharpening the on-road presence of the iconic Grand Tourer. A new front bumper combines with a smaller radiator shell and new, more pronounced fenders to lend a more assertive and confident stance to the front of the car. Enhancing the GT’s iconic silhouette further, three new paint colours are available.
The upgrades continue inside the luxury cabin of the Continental range with a new and contemporary interior including new seat patterns, brightware elements, driver instruments, steering wheel and gear paddles. New material options and hide colours complete the refresh. Onboard WiFi, providing connectivity to all handheld devices in the car is also now available across the Continental family.
The mighty 6.0-litre twin turbo W12 engine receives a power and torque increase, from 575 PS (567 bhp / 423 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb.ft) to 590 PS (582 bhp / 434 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb.ft), to maintain the model’s reputation of effortless performance. The power upgrade is accompanied by improvements to fuel economy and efficiency.  
Luxury of choice extended on Flying Spur
Bentley’s four-door luxury sedan, the Flying Spur is on display at Geneva and showcases additional features for 2015,  offering even more bespoke choice.
The exquisite cabin of the Flying Spur gains modern and tactile new features to maintain Bentley’s reputation for interior style and usability. Complementing the feature upgrades are new paint colours in the hues of Marlin, Camel and Jetstream – as per the Continental GT – and the addition of Shortbread and Camel hides to the extensive range of leathers.
Unrivalled, effortless Speed
The newly launched Mulsanne Speed completes the line-up at Geneva. Tailored for the driver,  the Mulsanne Speed delivers the fastest ultra-luxury driving experience in the world.
Bentley’s mighty 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8 engine propels the Mulsanne Speed to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds) and on to a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h), whilst contemporary exterior and interior styling features define the Mulsanne Speed as a statement in quintessential British luxury.
