The Flying Spur V8 represents everything the range stands for. Innovatively designed, precision-engineered and astonishingly powerful, it is the embodiment of everything Bentley stands for: pure unadulterated luxury combined with outstanding performance.
The Flying Spur V8 showcases Bentley’s characteristic design DNA, with flowing curves meeting crisp, clean edges to create a remarkably sleek silhouette. A powerful design statement, it has commanding presence on the road. Step inside and Bentley's celebrated craftsmanship is evident throughout, while the latest in-car technology is provided for both driver and passengers alike with intuitive touchscreen access at your fingertips.
There’s no question the Flying Spur V8 is a breathtaking presence on the road. It’s elegance shines through in the details – the sharply defined body shape, distinctive upright grille and evocative styling. Step back and its power radiates through with the classic Bentley power line running from the front wheel arch down the car’s flank. Note the crisply defined bonnet crease and muscular rear haunches.
The Flying Spur V8 is the starting point for the range, one that offers pulse-quickening acceleration, responsive agility and remarkable road handling. It is also a car with a difference, one that offers highly responsive performance unheard of in the super-luxury saloon category – in fact, it’s more akin to a luxury sedan when you’re behind the wheel or relaxing in the passenger or rear seats.
The Flying Spur’s well-appointed cabin is a perfect balance of cutting-edge technology superbly and subtly showcased though matchless craftsmanship. Our expertise shines through in every detail. Run your eye over the deep sheen of mirror-matched wood veneer waist rails and dashboard and you will immediately want to run your fingers over them too. All the wood veneer used in the Flying Spur cabin is ethically sourced. Cured for 72 hours, it is then treated with five layers of clear lacquer to enhance its natural beauty. The result is a series of stunning, mirror-matched surfaces that flow seamlessly into the soft, tactile leather.
