Bentley completes new range of driver-centric S models with the launch of the new Flying Spur S, offering additional dimensions of enhanced dynamics, dramatic visual presence and enhanced sound drama to further elevate Bentley’s four-door all-wheel drive .
This is the first time the historic Bentley S logo has been used on a hybrid product and it is a further step towards achieving Bentley’s Beyond100 vision for the sustainable path of the brand’s future.
The Bentley Flying Spur has long been praised for its ability to give the driver the ability to engage with it with passion, without ever compromising passenger comfort. As with the launch of the convertible Continental GT S and Continental GT S, the new Flying Spur S models focus on driving pleasure – but with an additional choice of engines – either a 4.0-liter V8 or a V6 hybrid.
Two songs for fun and excitement
Each of the two power groups offered by the Flying Spur S offers a sporty and rewarding driving experience thanks to the adoption of complementary engineering approaches, while maintaining easy performance, a feature that has always been associated with the Bentley name.
The V8 version of the Flying Spur S is powered by Bentley’s advanced 4.0-liter V8 engine, which produces 550 PS and 770 Nm of torque. It can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds and reach a top speed – where possible and legal – of 198 mph.
Equipped with the standard Bentley Dynamic Ride, the car is capable of delivering 1300 Nm of anti-rotation torque in 0.3 seconds to maintain an upright and stable body position during fast difficult turns while providing passengers with a ride calm and quiet while driving. Travel at low speed by splitting the wheels on each axle. The all-wheel drive electronic steering wheel is also standard. When maneuvering at low speeds, the system turns the wheels in the opposite direction forward up to 4.2 degrees to reduce rotation and increase agility and agility.
For urban dwellers or those who care about the environment, the Flying Spur S is also available with a hybrid engine, which combines a 2.9-liter V6 petrol engine with an advanced electric generator, which together produce a total of 536 hp (544 PS). ). ) and 750 Nm-meters (553 lb-ft) of torque, with the ability to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds, which is about one-tenth of a second less than a V8 engine. The car can drive up to 26 miles (41 km) with clean electric propulsion, with only 75 grams of CO2 emission per kilometer (WLTP). Therefore, the Flying Spur Hybrid S is more of a hybrid.
A Bentley still efficient.
For customers who appreciate the acoustic satisfaction of a performance-focused engine, the V8 Flying Spur S features a redesigned sports exhaust system, while the Flying Spur Hybrid S (in Sport mode) has an innovative tone that matches the character of the car.
Exterior design – intentional but refined and functional
The black additions to the Flying Spur S models create a sporty and refined look, regardless of which exterior color is chosen. And for Crewe’s design team, the lack of shiny, sleek metal fittings makes the car look lower and wider – and that’s Bentley’s true sporting spirit. The Model S line comes with a completely new 22-inch wheel option with five glossy black Y-slots, or optionally the new Pale Brodgar Satin finish. There is also the design of 21-inch wheels with three sockets that combine glossy black and glossy accents brushed on the car – also unique to the S. family.
Interior – delicate visual and sensory notes
The interior of the Flying Spur S enables customers to unleash their imagination by choosing the bichromatic separation centered on handmade performance at the leather workshop at the company’s headquarters in Crewe, using finely decorated and finely groomed Dynamics. This suede-like material is used in the heated steering wheel, as well as in the shift key, seat cushions and head restraints, while leather upholstery is used in the seat backs and door inserts, as well as in the instrument panel and around. the console.
S-style seats are with grooved seams as an option. The S logo is embroidered on the headrest of each seat and embroidered Bentley wings are available at no extra cost.
The new range of S models will be displayed dynamically at the ‘Goodwood Speed Festival’ which will take place from Thursday 23rd June to Sunday 26th June. Prototypes of Flying Spur S, GT S and GTC S cars will ride on the famous hill climb in the First Look Cars category and will be on the runway throughout the popular event.
