Bentley Flying Spur Black Edition Boats Dynamic Looks

By Paul Joseph

Bentley have announced full details of the new Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition – billed as the car of choice for those seeking a luxury performance saloon with a darker, more dynamic aesthetic.

Designed to reflect the car’s sporting character, the model features black gloss brightware, dark tint lights, gloss black window surrounds and door mirrors, and new wheels, serving to provide a more dynamic, contemporary look to complement the mighty power output of the V8 S engine.

Inside, a unique colour split, with striking new accents, is available, while a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel and Piano Black veneer come as standard.

Tuned for more power, the 4.0-litre V8 engine propels the Flying Spur to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 306 km/h (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, 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 striking gloss black finish. Customers have the choice of black or red painted brake calipers, to complete the sporting enhancements.

The unique interior, meanwhile, is dominated by a single tone with bold, contrasting stripes of stitched leather hide that frame the four seats’ centre panels, running up and around the headrests. The same accent colour is matched by the contrasting headliner bow that runs through the centre of the roof.

It also has a Piano Black veneer and a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel as standard, as well as contrast stitching to complete the bold, sporting appeal of the interior.

The first Bentley Flying Spur was launched in 2005.
