Recently unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, the new Bentley Flying Spur V8 S fits between the Flying Spur V8 and the 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.
Speaking of engines, the new model gets a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with 528hp, as well as 680nm of torque, giving it an impressive 0-100kph time of 4.9 seconds. The top speed of the V8 S is 306kph and the V8 engine is also able to cover more than 837km between fill-ups, ensuring impressive fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
Complementing these power upgrades, a new responsive suspension tuning for the Flying Spur V8 S improves handling and body control, while careful recalibration of the Continuous Damping Control (CDC) system helps improve handling performance and ensures minimal degradation in ride comfort.
The sporty ride has dark and sporting exterior highlights, and offers a unique grille insert with black styling and a beluga gloss rear diffuser. Inside the cabin, the ride comes with piano-black wood veneers and a three-spoke sports steering wheel, while a knurled gear lever and gear shift paddles add tactility to the driving experience. A colour split unique to the V8 S features stunning two-tone seats with a contrasting roof centre bow.
Claimed to be the world’s finest luxury sedan, Bentley’s team has added several new features, such as sharp lines on the rear haunches, LED daytime running lights and stylish alloy wheels. Interior-wise, the Bentley Flying Spur V8 S boasts a spacious cabin and on-board technology, including Touch Screen Remote and a WiFi hotspot.
The V8 S also gets optional carbon ceramic brakes with red or black painted calipers, as well as dark-tint lights on the front and rear, black gloss exterior mirror covers and a unique Mulliner Driving Specification design with 21-inch alloy wheels in black—all are available for customers who wish for an extreme look for their ride.
“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,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors.
