2023 Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid – The Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid has completed a cross-country journey across Iceland by using geothermal energy as well as biofuel made from waste straw. Bentley is celebrating the trip as the latest stage in its investigation into biofuels that are able to be used in a manner that does not require engine modifications.

Its Azure Purple hybrid plug-in vehicle has traveled the distance of 455 miles (733 km) across Iceland in a single bottle of gasoline (and the charge) while emitting less carbon dioxide by 45 percent in a wheel-to-well model than a typical car would. It’s due to biofuel, which meets similar EN228 specifications as the pump gas, however, it is made from the waste of biomass which is in this instance straw. Because it is made from waste materials There is no impact on food production, and straw isn’t required to be cultivated specifically to be used for this reason. This is the second step of Bentley’s investigation into the fuel. It is also the fuel used in the Bentley Continental GT3 race car which took on the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in June.

The process calls for the biomass to be degraded through fermentation, which produces the chemical ethanol. The ethanol is then dehydrated to form ethylene, which is transformed into gasoline using the process of the oligomerization. “It was great to see the car make the 733 km journey across the country on renewable electricity and green renewable fuel,” said Thordis Kolbrun Reykfjord Gylfadottir Iceland’s Minister for Tourism, Industry, and Innovation for Iceland. “Iceland wants to be part of the environmental solution and help others use the knowledge and renewable sources we have here.”
What powers this Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid is a 2.9-liter V6 engine that is paired to an electric drive. Together, they create 536 horsepower (544 PS/400 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. If you don’t want to go hypermile or go faster than 60 mph, the car is capable of reaching 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers/h) in 4.1 seconds. “Driving through the countryside with waterfalls on your left, and volcanos to the right you can visually see where the energy is generated directly, from nature,” said Gylfadotti. “I think this is the best definition of sustainable energy.”
