Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition

Bentley Motors has rolled out the Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition, "the car of choice for customers seeking a luxury performance saloon with a more dynamic aesthetic."

The Black Edition has a suite of exterior and interior features including black gloss brightware, dark tint lights, gloss black window surrounds and door mirrors, and new wheels. Inside there are new accents, 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 521 hp and 502 lb. ft. of torque, which propels the Flying Spur 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.

The headlights and tail lamps have a distinctive dark tint and black bezels, while the radiator and window surrounds, headlight washer caps and door-handle inserts are styled in a black gloss finish.

The alloy wheel design, unique to the Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition, is 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 interior is dominated by a single tone with contrasting stripes of stitched leather hide that frame the four seats’ center panels, running up and round the headrests. The same accent color is matched by the contrasting headliner bow that runs through the center of the roof.

No pricing information was released.
