Uncompromised elegance, inside and out
Stunningly sculpted surfaces meet at sharp lines to create an exterior design that demands attention and refuses to let it go. Considered details like the new vertical vane matrix grille, cut-crystal headlamps and an optional 22” black painted wheel infuse its presence with pure athleticism and elegance.
Exclusive design details give this luxury grand tourer it its own identity. From the Quad Oval Tailpipes to unique V8 badging that denotes its status within the range.
Get behind the wheel of the new Flying Spur V8 and you’ll discover a spacious interior that envelops you in a combination of fine materials and craftsmanship. The dramatic new floating console brings all of the intricate details together; the elegant lines run from the Bentley wings-inspired dashboard and the beautiful polished veneers – in Crown Cut Walnut as standard – to the luxurious nappa leather panels on both front and rear doors.
Beauty can be found in every detail, such as the sculpted centre vents on the console – reminiscent of the Bentley ‘B’ design – an element that can be made even more intricate with the signature diamond-knurled finish. To continue this diamond detail, you can even replace the smooth leather of the door panels with a three-dimensional diamond leather upholstery as part of the Mulliner Driving Specification – an element never before seen in the automotive world.
The new Flying Spur V8 delivers a full sensory experience, offering exhilarating power and performance set to the soundtrack of an emotive exhaust note. Its lighter V8 engine results in incredible agility and a responsiveness that adds excitement to every drive, from the first surge of acceleration to the last.
Control the drive
Innovative systems and technologies ensure that you can always make the most of the new Flying Spur V8’s phenomenal engine, whatever the demands of the road. The optional active roll control system, Bentley Dynamic Ride, ensures maximum, comfort, control and handling can be enjoyed at all times.
Rapid acceleration and quick gearshifts are provided by an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. This seamless shifting is achieved by pre-selecting the next gear before leaving the current selection. Maximum speed can be reached in sixth gear, with the seventh and eighth gears reserved for reduced fuel consumption when cruising – ideal for exploring the city or touring the roads that take you further afield.
Wherever your journey takes you, the new Flying Spur V8 gives you the versatility you need – as engaging to drive on tight corners as it is wide highways. At low speeds, optional Electronic All-Wheel Steering provides increased mobility and a smaller turning circle while, at higher speeds, it enhances stability to give you extra confidence when overtaking and cornering.
With four driving modes available at the turn of a dial, you can optimise performance to suit your needs. Sport mode maximises dynamic response, Comfort mode ensures luxurious cruising even on bumpy city streets, Bentley mode finds the perfect balance between the two and Custom mode allows you to configure your own preferred mixture of settings.
Whether you’re at the wheel or in the rear of the cabin of this incredible grand tourer, the new Flying Spur V8 uses the latest technology to enhance every journey, from helpful Connected Car features to an engaging infotainment system.
Every element of the new Flying Spur V8 combines the finest materials with skilled craftsmanship – and the personalisation options are no different. These customisable details have been specially selected by Bentley craftspeople to offer you something extraordinary: the opportunity to make a bespoke car that is as unique as you are.
