Flying Spur V8 is the latest bet of the new generation of the British brand. With increased agility and efficiency, focused on driving, it translates into a more environment "friendly" version, but equally powerful
Owner of the title of "best luxury sedan in the world", the Bentley Flying Spur has been renewed and is now available with the successful V8 engine as an alternative to the iconic W12 block. The new model is an exciting and dynamic expression of the top line of the British brand, translating into a four-door Grand Tourer that combines exquisite luxury with state-of-the-art integrated technology.
The Flying Spur V8 offers a more driver-focused experience through greater agility and a more characteristic engine presence, while benefiting from greater fuel autonomy and a decrease in CO2 emissions.
The innovative vehicle "features Bentley's classic design, best-in-class workmanship, authentic materials and attention to detail”. “The new Flying Spur V8 also includes the latest info-entertaining and driver assistance systems to increase safety and relaxation on all journeys”, stresses Engineering Council member Matthias Rabe. Through a range of optional equipment, including tablets, audio options such as the industry-leading "Naim for Bentley" system, and even the luxury of a refrigerator, the rear of the cabin is the best place to work or relax while traveling.
The Flying Spur V8 is 100 kg lighter than the W12 version, it presents itself more agile and responsive, with a very unique personality. That is, it reaches maximum speeds of 318 km/h (198 mph), and an impressive 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.0 s (0 to 60 mph in 4.1 s). This powerful performance is matched by the confident handling and comfort provided by the addition of Bentley Dynamic Ride.
The first orders arrive in the hands of their owners in late 2020 and the noise of the engine running is like music in the ears of those who appreciate good machines.
