THE NEW BENTLEY FLYING SPUR V8
The all-new Bentley Flying Spur V8 combines an upright grille, large jewel LED headlamps, sharp fender wing vents, a wide body and the Flying Spur's familiar contemporary design lines to present a muscular yet elegant exterior design. In short, everything you expect from a Bentley.
Inside, Bentley's famous craftsmanship is evident throughout, while touch screen access to the latest in-car technology is provided for both driver and passengers. But it's what's under the bonnet that really sets the heart racing. A powerful 4.0 V8 twin-turbocharged engine produces 507PS of power and 660Nm of torque. Coupled with Bentley’s renowned all-wheel drive and a smooth 8-speed quick-shift transmission, it delivers exhilarating performance alongside exquisite sophistication; an unforgettable experience, whether you’re in the back or behind the wheel.
With its sharply defined body shape, the new Flying Spur V8 is a commanding presence on the road. The Bentley marque’s characteristic curves meet crisp, clean new edges in a remarkably sleek silhouette.
Elegant it certainly is. Yet the power line running down the side of the body, the strong rear haunch and the wraparound tail lamps betray the reserves of power concealed beneath the car’s sculpted bonnet.
The new Flying Spur V8: a powerful design statement and an extraordinary luxury sedan.
Spend time in the Flying Spur and you might not want to get out.
The interior represents a unique marriage of traditional craftsmanship and advanced technology. You can see it in the mirror-matched veneer waistrails and dashboard, the matching veneered glasses case in the console and the picnic tables behind the front seats. It can take some time to appreciate everything inside the Flying Spur. It could even be worth making those first few trips a touch longer.
The veneers used for the mirror-matched waistrails and dashboard, the matching glasses case in the console and the picnic tables behind the front seats are all carefully fitted by hand. Cured for 72 hours, they are treated with five layers of clear lacquer to enhance their natural beauty. The result is a series of stunning, mirror-matched surfaces that flow seamlessly into the soft, tactile leather of the new Flying Spur V8's interior.
Every hand-upholstered leather seat is individually sewn, hand-fitted and signed by the upholsterer on the back of the hide, which undergoes a traditional tanning process beforehand, to give it a rich, luxurious leather aroma

TOUCH SCREEN REMOTE
In the new Flying Spur V8 the control has been placed firmly in the rear passengers hands, via an integrated Touch Screen Remote (TSR). The TSR is located in the centre of the rear console and can be removed from its docking station so rear occupants can reach it more easily. The TSR controls the rear window blind and rear climate conditions as well as the seat heating and ventilation (where fitted). The TSR also allows volume adjustment of the front infotainment system plus switching between radio, media, and map modes. The speed, current time and vehicle trip information is also displayed on the TSR.
