The Geneva Motor Show 2014 is the venue for the world premier of the Bentley Flying Spur V8! The new Bentley model provides an entry level for those that want something more than their premium sedan. We took a closer look at this reduced-fat limousine!
The Bentley Flying Spur V8 shares the same 4.0 litre V8 engine with the Bentley Continental GT V8. Its twin-turbo powerplant develops 507 hp together with 660 Nm of torque (slightly more than the Continental GT V8). The powerplant is enough to propel the Flying Spur V8 from 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 295 km/h.
Subtle styling differentiates the Flying Spur V8 from the W12 with figure of eight chromed exhaust tips, a Bentley winged badge with a red centre and a front bumper grille finished in black with a black “wing” insert. The styling cues are essentially the same as the Bentley Continental GT V8 then. As standard, the V8 gets 19 inch Classic alloy wheels in a painted finish.
The Bentley Flying Spur V8 debuts alongside an updated Bentley Continental range. Find out more about the Bentley Flying Spur V8 in our earlier article. Be sure to check out our Geneva Motor Show 2014 news channel for the latest from the worlds biggest motor show!
