Bentley launches new sporting Flying Spur V8 S
Bentley Motors has now introduced a new model to its range – the Flying Spur V8 S.
Taking its place between the Flying Spur V8 and family flagship W12, the V8 S is tuned for power and performance, with increased engine output and revised suspension offering a more focused, precise driving experience.
The Flying Spur V8 S features a number of sporting styling cues which hint at its new and improved sporting capabilities.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, said: “The Flying Spur remains unrivalled in its ability to combine class-leading comfort with remarkable dynamic ability. It’s the perfect choice for the customer who wants ultimate refinement as well as an exhilarating, spirited drive.”
The Bentley Flying Spur V8 S will make its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show between 1 and 13 March 2016. First customer deliveries begin in the summer.
Tuned for power, Bentley’s renowned 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 S engine develops an additional 21 PS, delivering 528 PS (521 bhp / 388 kW) powering the Flying Spur V8 S to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds). Top speed is 306 km/h (190 mph).
The increased performance is achieved without detriment to the V8 engine’s impressive fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The new Flying Spur V8 S returns a combined cycle fuel economy of 10.9 L/100km (25.9 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 254 g/km. This combination of power, performance and economy is the result of an array of advanced technologies employed in the design of the Bentley V8 engine.
The Flying Spur V8 S not only offers engaging performance: its luxurious, limousine-smooth ride and legendary ability to transport passengers in unrivalled comfort.
Flying Spur V8 S can be specified with an array of aggressive, dark styling elements. Dark-tint lights (front and rear), black gloss exterior mirror covers and a unique Mulliner Driving Specification 21” black and bright machined six-spoke wheel can all be specified at your Bentley dealer.
To make the Flying Spur even more attractive to customers, Bentley has added an array of exceptional optional features.
A semi-aniline hide option is now available in W12 and V8 S models. The highest quality hide available in the automotive industry, it gives the cabin an even more comfortable, luxurious and natural feel.
Contemporary new straight-fluting on the leather seats adds visual impact, while the Mulliner Driving Specification gains a small-diamond quilting pattern reminiscent of a tailored British jacket.
With its unrivalled blend of effortless driveability, exquisite craftsmanship and onboard technology, the Flying Spur rightly lays claim to being the world’s finest luxury sedan.
