Engineering

The Flying Spur V8 is the starting point for the range, one that offers pulse-quickening acceleration, responsive agility and remarkable road handling.

It is also a car with a difference, one that offers highly responsive performance unheard of in the super-luxury saloon category – in fact, it’s more akin to a luxury sedan when you’re behind the wheel or relaxing in the passenger or rear seats.

Effortless Power
The 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine produces formidable torque [660 Nm from 1,700 rpm] that effortlessly propels 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].

Effortless Comfort

This incredible performance comes with no discernible loss of ride comfort thanks to the independent computer-controlled air suspension, which maximises impact absorption and isolation. The 8-speed Quickshift transmission ensures that even through multiple gear changes, the ride remains incredibly smooth.

Accelerating is a pure pleasure, with an even build up of power as you press the pedal. The world slides effortlessly by, whether you’re negotiating a challenging mountain pass or gliding along a wide city boulevard.

Effortless Control
Powerful as it is, the Flying Spur V8 is also extremely refined. It is the epitome of Bentley’s trademark luxury and performance. Of course, the refined V8 engine has power to spare. But combined with Bentley’s renowned all-wheel drive, it gives you total control and an unforgettable ride, in town or on the open road.

The seamless 8-speed transmission ensures the Flying Spur V8 is always in the optimum gear. Responsive at low speeds, it is incredibly smooth, even through multiple gear changes. The car’s engine management system gives the driver total control of the effortless power that is always available, while also delivering better range.

Feel the Difference
Additional optional extras, such as the knurled gearshift paddles or knurled gear lever, add a further, engaging detail to the drive making every gear change an experience to be anticipated and savoured.

Like many of the features of the Flying Spur, these are the kind of small details that are not remarked upon if you haven’t yet experienced them but are sorely missed if they are absent.
