GENEVA — The 2017 Bentley Flying Spur V8 S sedan, a new sporty addition to the Flying Spur roster, will go on sale at Bentley dealerships this summer, following a global debut at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show in March.
Pricing has not been announced.
The latest member of the Flying Spur lineup features 21 more horsepower than the base model and a revised suspension. The Flying Spur V8 S is equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that delivers 521 hp and 502 pound-feet of torque.
Top speed is pegged at 190 mph. The new model sprints from zero-60 in 4.6 seconds, a 0.3-second improvement over the base model.
Exterior cues emphasize sportiness and include a black radiator grille and rear diffuser. Options include dark-tint exterior lights, black gloss exterior mirror covers and Mulliner Driving Specification 21-inch black wheels for a "menacing" look, Bentley said.
The cabin features a three-spoke sports steering wheel and piano-black wood trim. A Wi-Fi hotspot is optional.
Edmunds says: Ultra-lux buyers get another option to consider if the Flying Spur is on their shopping lists.
