Flying Spur V8

Bentley Flying Spur V8


Flying Spur V8

The new generation Flying Spur offers a remarkable mix of supercar performance with lavish space for four or five, making it the ideal choice for the CEO in a hurry. Now, the 6.0 litre W12 version is joined by a new stablemate. The Flying Spur V8 offers similar levels of performance with higher fuel efficiency – as well as the pleasure of hearing that distinctive V8 growl under acceleration.

From the outside, there’s little to distinguish the new Flying Spur V8 from its 6.0 litre, twelve-cylinder W12 sibling. And that’s a good thing, because it’s a handsome design that’s sportier and more imposing than the previous model. Seen in the rear view mirror, a Flying Spur can be identified by Bentley styling cues of mesh matrix grill and twin round headlamps – though unlike the Continental models, the Spur features larger headlamps on the outside to emphasise the car’s assertive stance. Sharp feature lines on the superformed aluminium front wings complement muscular rear haunches, while LED daytime running lights, dipped headlights and taillights feature front and rear.

Unique styling cues for the V8 model include figure-of-eight chromed exhaust finishers and a red enamel centre to the Bentley wings badges. The front bumper grills are finished in black, with a black "wing" insert.

Inside, central infotainment is controlled through a high resolution 8" touch-screen interface with satellite navigation and Bluetooth connectivity, while infotainment features can be controlled by voice activation. An eight-channel, eight-speaker audio system featuring Balanced Mode Radiator technology can play music from an on-board hard drive, CDs, DVDs, SD cards and via an iPod. Wi-fi connectivity is available with the MultiMedia Spec, which also includes a 64GB Connectivity unit.

The Bentley Flying Spur’s bodyshell is exceptionally strong, with a torsional stiffness of 36,500 Nm/degree, to the benefit of both handling and refinement. As with every Bentley bar the Mulsanne, the engine’s power is transmitted via an eight-speed transmission to all four wheels. In the Flying Spur, the front/rear torque split is 40:60. As a result it’s an agile and rewarding drive for such a luxurious and spacious saloon.

Bentley’s 4.0 V8 has already been acclaimed in the Continental GT V8, and it makes an equally good pairing with the Flying Spur. The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine develops 500bhp (507PS) and 488 lb-ft. of torque (660Nm), powering the Flying Spur V8 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 183 mph. Variable displacement ‘switches off’ four of the engines eight cylinders under light throttle openings, but so smoothly that driver and passengers are unlikely to notice any transition. A 32-bit TriCore™ microprocessor performs up to 180 million instructions per second for precise control of combustion, delivering CO2 emissions of just 254 g/km. Of more interest to prospective owners will be the enhanced touring range of over 500 miles between fill-ups.
