2015 Bentley Flying Spur Design

The Bentley Flying Spur is a potent symbol of status and wealth. Even $100,000 luxosedans seem a pale imitation of the Spur’s quiet opulence. Square foot by square foot, it has as much hand-finished wood and hand-stitched leather as any vehicle on the planet, a perfect companion to its stately presence. Drive one, and it’s obvious you’ve arrived.

It may not be the largest, most expensive sedan in Bentley’s lineup – that distinction belongs to the Mulsanne but few buyers are likely to find the Flying Spur lacking in size or sumptuousness.

It is no surprise that like most other uber-luxury car companies, Bentley is not too keen on changes. It’s buyers like a certain thing and it makes sure to deliver the goods year in and year out, no surprises. Well, Bentley is making the oh-so-rare changeup this year at the Geneva Auto Show , as it will debut the Flying Spur V8 as a complement to the existing Flying Spur W12 .

Outside, a formal roofline and traditional Bentley radiator grille give the Flying Spur a regal air, while raised rear hips, vertical taillights and upswept character lines add a hint of athleticism that’s more than backed up by what lurks under the long hood.

The Flying Spur once was also badged a Continental, but last year Bentley split that lineup of coupes, convertibles, and sedans down the middle. The four-door is just a Flying Spur now, and the renaming draws attention to the more emphatic styling differences between the cars in their current generation.

2015 Bentley Flying Spur Interior

The Flying Spur’s interior remains a paradigm: it’s functionally fit, fabulously finished, bespoke to a certain degree in its palette of trim and color choices, as much a cozy library of timeless car lines and finishes as it is a housing for Bentley’s state-of-the-art infotainment technology.

The Flying Spur V8’s interior monotone color split for a super-luxurious look and feel, and includes Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus wood veneer. Technology is plentiful as well, as the new Bentley Bentley comes with a touchscreen remote mounted in the center console, which allows the rear-seat riders to control the climate control system and infotainment system without asking the driver.

Optionally, buyers can toss in a the Multimedia Specification, which includes an extensive Rear Seat Entertainment system.

As the most powerful and fastest Bentley sedan ever, the Flying Spur hasn’t lacked for attention under the metal, either. Two powertrains are offered. The more exclusive one is the latest version of the 6.0-liter W-12 that executives say is the brand’s hallmark. Output is 616 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. It’s coupled to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive with a variable torque split set at 40:60 from launch, but capable of shifting to 65 percent front or 85 percent rear as traction needs arise. Bentley quotes a 0-60 mph times of 4.3 seconds, and an astonishing top speed of 200 mph in a car that weighs almost 5,500 pounds. It reels off whiplashes of power, controlled deftly by a paddle-shifted eight-speed automatic that merits wheel-mounted, heavy-gauge paddles not the flimsy ones it’s given. The new transmission and the use of more aluminum has improved gas mileage to 12 miles per gallon city, 20 miles per gallon highway, or 15 mpg combined.

A suite of infotainment services are matched to the Bentley’s mission in life, and to the executive levels of charm found inside. Quiet and tastefully rendered, the Flying Spur’s cabin is filled with muted details, and studded with “B” logos, all framing a large LCD screen for infotainment functions that can be controlled by front-seat and by back-seat passengers via remote control. The remote also governs the twin 10-inch flat screens embedded in the front-seat headrests for those rear passengers offering them in-car Internet and wireless connectivity and entertainment.

Shifting duties for both motors are handled by a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission, with output put to the pavement through an all-wheel-drive system featuring a 40/60 torque split for engaging, sure-footed driving dynamics.

On the outside, the Flying Spur V8 is nearly identical to its big brother, save for a few minor distinguishing characteristics. Up front, the V8 model shows its differences by way of a red center on the winged badge, black-finished bumper grilles and a black “wing” insert. Sure these differences are subtle, but this is nothing new to Bentley.

Around back there are even fewer cues that this model is new, as the only difference between this variant and the W-12 model are the figure-eight exhaust tips on the Flying Spur V8.

Fuel economy, rarely a consideration in this vehicle segment, is rated at 12 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway for the W12, while the V8 is comparatively abstemious at 14/24 mpg.

For the new Flying Spur V8, Bentley fits a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 with cylinder deactivation. It pushes out 500 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque, good for a 0-60 mph time quoted at 4.9 seconds, and a top speed of 183 mph. With more than 500 miles of driving range, the slightly more throaty, throttle-happy V8 earns EPA ratings of 14/24/17 mpg, a nudge in the greener direction.

Sure, the Flying Spur V8 gets a few distinguishing tidbits here and there on the inside and outside, but the real difference lies under the hood. This is where Bentley dropped in its 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 that cranks out 500 horsepower and 660 Nm (487 pound-feet) of torque this is a 116-horsepower and 103-pound-feet drop from the W-12 engine. This V-8 powerplant hooks up to the same ZF-sourced eight-speed autobox as the W-12 model and delivers power to all four wheels.

The V-8 power found under the hood is no stranger to us, as we’ve seen this 4.0-liter in various Bentley models, including the Continental GT . The purpose here is obviously to improve upon the company’s current corporate fuel economy, as the V-8 powerplant adds 2 mpg city, 4 mpg highway and 2 mpg combined to the W-12 engine’s numbers.
