Manufactured in Crewe, Bentley’s home in the United Kingdom, the Flying Spur is a decadent take on the four-door sedan. This, the V8, is the second generation of Flying Spur. Based on the Continental sporting coupes, the Flying Spur provides a more luxurious and elegant spin on the platform. With stunning craftsmanship, both inside and out, the Bentley Flying Spur is as imposing today as it was when new. Located in Florida and with just 18,705 miles on the clock, this luxurious British sedan offers one of the most compelling ways of experiencing true elegance on four wheels.
Our subject 2015 Bentley Flying Spur V8 is finished in Thunder Grey, with 21-inch ten-spoke Propeller alloy wheels on Pirelli rubber. The exterior bears a resemblance to the smaller two-door Continental Coupe, but on a longer wheelbase for ample passenger room in the rear. Inside, the Flying Spur features a host of adornments. The Magnolia interior features seats that are ventilated, with massage functions, and embroidered Bentley emblems in the headrests. The boot/trunk carpet has been matched to the secondary hide, with contrast binding to the carpet overmats. Meanwhile, both front and rear compartments feature deep-pile carpets. Up front, the driver is presented with a dual-tone, 3-spoke, hide-trimmed steering wheel. Driving is assisted with adaptive cruise control, while also present is a SIM card reader to telephone system for constant connectivity. This Flying Spur also features Veneered picnic tables for the rear passengers, a CD changer, and a sunroof.
Under the hood is a four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. With 500 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque, it’s enough to dispatch the 0-60 mph time in under five seconds—deceptively fast for a large saloon, which is kept comfortable at all speeds thanks to 4-corner air suspension.
