According to Autocar, the model worthy of the title is the petrol/electric hybrid Flying Spur.
We had to find out for ourselves…
First up, a hybrid? Really? But if the very idea is anathema to you, the first shock is that, paradoxically, it’s in full battery mode that the Spur feels most like a Bentley, wafting along silently on a wave of torque and doing a fine impression of the old 6.75-litre V8.
And you really can use it as a pure EV, for up to 20 miles or so at a time, with petrol power only kicking in if you push the throttle nearer to the floor.
When you do, the 134bhp motor is joined by the 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 from the Audi RS5, for a 536bhp total.
