Black is black all right! And when it comes to defining black nothing in the luxury motoring world comes close to the all-new 2018 Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition. Period! This luxury performance saloon is now available with striking exterior and interior features that reflect the car’s sporting character.
Black gloss brightware, dark tint lights, gloss black window surrounds and door mirrors, and new wheels provide a more dynamic, contemporary commentary for 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.
With power in mind, the 4.0-litre V8 engine delivers 528 PS (521 bhp) and 680 Nm (502 lb. ft.) rocketing the Bentley Flying Spur to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, and on to a top speed of 306 km/h. 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.
Moving on, 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 Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition, in the form of a 21-inch seven-spoke elegant pattern in a striking gloss black finish. A choice of black or red painted brake calipers is available, to complete the sporting enhancements.
The car’s unique interior is dominated by a single tone with bold, contrasting stripes of stitched leather hide that frame the four seats’ centre panels, running up and round the headrests. The same accent colour is matched by the contrasting headliner bow that runs through the centre of the roof.
Should one wish for a different aesthetic, the interior can be specified with a full range of interior colours and colour splits.
When equipped with the Mulliner Driving Specification internally, the Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition comes with diamond-quilted hides in the seat and door panels, with contrast stitching for a more contemporary visual tone. Externally, Mulliner Driving Specification offers an additional choice of two 21-inch five-spoke directional sports wheel finishes in gloss black or dark tint.
