15 Jan 2021

You might already be familiar with Bentley’s Flying Spur Saloon, but are you ready to explore the new Flying Spur V8 with enhanced driver focus?

Following In The Continental GT’s Footsteps

Now, you might already be familiar with Bentley’s Flying Spur Saloon released in 2019, but are you ready to explore the new Flying Spur V8 with enhanced driver focus? The new Bentley Flying Spur V8 is a petrol version of the original Flying Spur model. 

Following in the footsteps of the classic Bentley Continental GT model, the Bentley Flying Spur V8 is powered identically. Featuring a twin-turbocharged motor and coming in at 568lb, reaching highs of 541bhp.
The Bentley Flying Spur V8 might be ever so slightly larger in size than the classic Continental GT, but it doesn’t stop it from reaching the same top speed of 198mph! The Flying Spur V8 also only takes 4.1 seconds to hit 62mph from a standstill which is just 0.1 seconds longer than the Continental GT.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 VS Bentley V12

Even though the successful launch of the V12 earlier this year was hard to outdo, Bentley believes that the Flying Spur V8 offers a much more “driver-centric driver experience” than the V12. This is due to its more “characterful engine note“ which allows for more range between each fuel stop.
When it comes to the weight, the Bentley Flying Spur V8 is also said to be more sharp and responsive than the V12, coming in at 100kg less. Some of the Flying Spur V8’s dynamic-enhancing systems that compliment its lighter feel perfectly are its adaptive air suspension, torque vectoring and added extras, such as electric ant-roll technology and four-wheel steering.

Lowered Environmental Effects

As for environmental effects, Bentley has successfully ensured the Flying Spur V8 has lower CO2 emissions than the V12 too, giving it a whopping 17% lower emissions. In fact, the Bentley Flying Spur V8 is said to be capable of as low as 22mpg which means it’s about 16% more efficient than the Bentley V12.
When cruising below 3000rpm, four cylinders in the Bentley Flying Spur V8 can be deactivated which ensures fuel consumption is kept to a minimum. Bentley also claims that this adjustment can be done in around 20 milliseconds, meaning it’s not even noticeable to drivers and their passengers.

Bentley Flying Spur V8 Interior

The interior of the Bentley Flying Spur V8 is actually not much different to the original Flying Spur model which means it also comes in four or five different seat formats like the original. There are also 7 different colours, such as Candy Red and Dark Sapphire. However, if you want to upgrade to the Blackline trim package, you can change the standard chrome exterior trim for a range of darker options.
As the Flying Spur V8 features a smaller engine, this means its wheels are slightly different too. It also features exclusive V8 badges and a quad-exit exhaust system.

How To Buy The Bentley Flying Spur V8

Currently, the new Bentley Flying Spur V8 is only available to order but the first customer deliveries are predicted to take place before the start of 2021. There isn’t a set price for the new Bentley petrol model yet, but starting prices are expected to be around £160,000.
