BENTLEY FLYING SPUR V8

New Bentley Flying Spur V8 has sculpted surfaces and precise feature lines to create an assertive presence. Gloss black radiator matrix and haunch line above the rear wheel gives a muscular look. The elegant roofline and side-glass profile enhance the Flying Spur’s streamlined appearance.

The latest ‘Flying B’ mascot has been redesigned for Bentley’s next century. It electronically deploys and illuminates when the car is unlocked.

The four individual ‘armchair-style’ seats allow the driver and passengers to travel in supreme comfort.

The 12.3-inch high-definition touchscreen provides access to maps and driver assistance tools, as well as options to personalise the cabin environment for your preferred optimum driving conditions.

The rear seats have a touchscreen remote and heated rear centre armrest with stowage, twin cupholders, two USB charging points and a 12-volt socket.

The headlamps feature a new chrome sleeve behind the cut-glass elements. This makes the lights sparkle like diamonds even when not lit.

These headlamps are intelligent, a halo is automatically cut into the beam around oncoming vehicles to avoid dazzling other drivers. Yet it provides optimised visibility for the Flying Spur driver.

A major addition is the Active All-Wheel Drive system, which optimises traction both on straights and through tight corners and maximises stability and responsiveness.

The turning circle is reduced at low speeds, increasing the car’s agility and manoeuvrability. At higher speeds, the system increases the stability of the car for a more assured drive.

Combining advanced engineering and design with intuitive technology, the latest Bentley Flying Spur V8 is set to enhance life for the driver and the driven. We hope to be able to borrow one for a road test soon and will bring our thoughts and feelings to you shortly afterwards.
