The Flying Spur S completes Bentley’s newest driving-focused family and all 4 cars will be on display at Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Bentley’s range of “S” cars are built for the Driver. The New driver focused Flying Spur is the first S model to offer a hybrid or V8 powertrain but features the symbolic Black gloss grille and brightware offers bold and purposeful exterior. The unique 22’s also fished in gloss black cover Red branded brake calipers and the rest of the car is littered with exterior and interior S badging.
The V8 version of the Flying Spur S is powered by Bentley’s advanced 4.0-litre V8 engine, developing 550 PS and 770 Nm of torque. The 0-62 mph benchmark takes a mere 4.0 seconds and top speed – where possible and legal – is 198 mph. It comes as standard with Bentley Dynamic Ride, capable of applying up to 1300 Nm of anti-roll torque in 0.3 seconds to keep the body flat and stable under spirited cornering, whilst delivering a smooth and supple ride for passengers at gentler velocities by decoupling the wheels across each axle. Electronic All-wheel Steering is also included as standard.
The new S model range will make its dynamic debut at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed, running from Thursday 23 June to Sunday 26 June. Examples of the Flying Spur S, GT S and GTC S will take to the famous hillclimb as part of the First Glance class, and be on display in the paddock throughout the event. They will be joined by a suite of other Bentleys from past and present, including iconic racecars and a dedicated parade of models to celebrate 40 years of turbocharged Bentleys – with the new S range as the latest members of the lineage.
