The new Flying Spur V8 – An introduction to the world's best luxury sedan

A new V8 powertrain is being introduced to the Bentley Flying Spur, giving customers the option of a new interpretation of this luxury four door Bentley .

Bentley’s renowned 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 engine develops 500 bhp and 660 Nm, powering the Flying Spur V8 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds) and on to a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h). This impressive performance comes with a fuel range of 520 miles (840 km), thanks to the highly efficient engine that includes cylinder deactivation, intelligent thermal management and electrical recuperation.

Subtle styling differentiates the Flying Spur V8 from its flagship W I 2 sibling – figure-eight chromed exhaust finishers signify the alternative powertrain, while the famous Bentley Wings badges receive the usual red centre to denote the V8 engine. The front bumper grills are finished in black, with a black “wing” insert.

Customers can upgrade their Flying Spur V8 can with Mulliner Driving Specification package which adds diamond quilting, a knurled gear lever, drilled alloy pedals, an indented leather headlining, “Jewel” fuel and oil filler caps and embroidered Bentley wings to all headrests. 20-inch five-spoke painted alloy wheels are fitted as standard, as is the 4+1 rear seat system including fully adjustable seats with lumbar support and seat heating. The standard veneer range is extended to include luxurious Dark Stain Burr Walnut and Piano Black finishes, while the full range of 17 hide colours and four additional colour splits is available.
