This is latest offering by Bentley Motors, the Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition, a limited offering for those seeking a little extra personalisition a standard Flying Spur can not deliver courtesy of Bentley's internal pool of design influencers. The interior features Black gloss brightware, dark tint lights, gloss black window surrounds and door mirrors, and new wheels provide a more dynamic complete what is the automotive makeover, the automotive equivalent to applying lipstick and mascara.
Inside, a unique colour split, new accents, is available to customers, while a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel and Piano Black veneer comes as standard.
Tuned for more power, the 4.0-litre V8 engine delivers 528 PS (521 bhp) and 680 Nm (502 lb. ft.), which propels the Flying Spur to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds), and on to a top speed of 190 mph. This power is delivered to the road via an all-wheel-drive system with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split for a sure-footed, engaging drive in all road and weather conditions.
The headlights and tail lamps have a distinctive dark tint and black bezels you don't see on a standard Flying Spur, while the radiator and window surrounds, headlight washer caps and door-handle inserts are styled in a striking black gloss finish.
There is a bespoke alloy wheel design, unique to the Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition, in the form of a 21” seven-spoke Elegant pattern in a gloss black finish. Customers have the choice of black or red painted brake calipers.
The Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition also has Piano Black veneer and a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel as standard. It has contrast stitching to complete the bold, sporting appeal of the interior.
Go for the full Mulliner Driving Specification and you get diamond-quilted hides in the seat and door panels, with contrast stitching.
Externally, Mulliner Driving Specification gives customers the additional choice of two 21” five-spoke Directional Sports wheel finishes in gloss black or dark tint.
So how much will all of this cost? A standard Flying Spur is priced at £142,00, these special editions never come cheap, this is hand built and finished luxury after all. Let's just say... expensive.
