Flying Spur V8
Innovatively designed, precision-engineered and astonishingly powerful, Flying Spur V8 is the embodiment of everything Bentley stands for: pure unadulterated luxury combined with outstanding performance. Step inside and Bentley's celebrated craftsmanship is evident throughout, while the latest in-car technology is provided for both driver and passengers alike with intuitive touchscreen access at your fingertips.
With its ‘B’ Bentley badge and figure eight styled exhaust, available on Flying Spur V8 and V8 S, the Flying Spur V8 is distinctive from any vantage point. It marries a sleekly fluid dynamism with a clean, progressive design edge.
The Flying Spur offers a spectacular presence from every conceivable angle. It’s elegance shines through in the details – the sharply defined body shape, distinctive upright grille, large jewel headlamps, sharp fender wing vents and athletic design lines deliver an unmatched road presence.
Step back and its performance capabilities shine through the classic Bentley power line that runs from the front wheel arch down the car’s flank. Note the crisply defined bonnet crease and muscular rear haunches.
Under the bonnet lurks a powerful 4.0 litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine that produces formidable torque [660 Nm from 1,700 rpm], effortlessly propelling the Flying Spur from 0-60 mph in a startling 4.9 seconds [0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 secs] with a top speed of 183 mph [295 km/h].
The Bentley Flying Spur V8 also offers a leaner, yet still luxurious alternative to its more powerful W12 sibling, with a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h) and lower emissions of 254 g/km. This impressive performance comes with a fuel range of 520 miles (840 km), thanks to the highly efficient engine that includes cylinder deactivation to save fuel, along with intelligent thermal management and electrical recuperation.
The Flying Spur’s handcrafted interior is a perfect balance of technology superbly and subtly showcased though matchless craftsmanship. Our expertise shines through in every detail.
Other details that catch the eye include the organ stop air-vent controls. These deliver the smooth and satisfyingly solid feel of authentic legacy instruments. Or the hand-stitched steering wheel that feels just right in your hands. It is these thoughtful trademark Bentley design touches that make the simplest operations, so rewarding: it is an interior designed to reward multiple senses.
