Engine & Performance
The new Flying Spur V8 comes with Bentley s famous 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine (first seen in the Continental GT V8). It delivers a whopping 502 horsepower with 488 lb ft of torque.
This luxury sedan reaches 60 mph in 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 183 mph.
Thanks to the highly efficient V8 engine which includes advanced thermal management, innovative electrical recuperation as well as cylinder deactivation, thereby providing improved fuel economy, this outstanding performance comes with a 520- mile cruising range.
For increased stability and traction irrespective of the weather conditions and roads, power is optimally channeled to all four wheels through a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, thus riding on a computer-controlled air suspension.
The subtle yet remarkable exterior details help the 2015 Bentley Flying Spur differentiate from the big-engine Flying Spur W12.
The differences include front bumper grilles with a posh black finish and a stylish black wing insert figure eight chromed exhaust tips.
Adding to its looks is winged Bentley badge on the hood of this luxury sedan.
For the ultimate driving experience, the sturdy 20 inch 5 spoke painted alloy wheel as well as the 4+1 rear seat system with fully adjustable seats, seat heating and lumbar support are fitted as standard.
Advanced on board technology includes the revolutionary Touch Screen Remote, stored in the wood veneered center console and which allows the rear-seat passengers to control the infotainment and climate systems of this top class sedan.
The optional Multimedia Specification package includes headrest-mounted screens. Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus wood veneer is the standard interior color split, but it can be extended to include glamorous Piano Black and Dark Stained Burr Walnut finishes. Four additional color splits and seventeen hide colors are also available.
