After the Continental GT S, it’s time for Bentley’s flagship model Flying Spur to join the S lineup, with the same formula as the Bentayga S and the Continental GT S. The Flying Spur S slots between the Flying Spur Mulliner and the Flying Spur Azure. If you are attending this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, you can check out the car between 23rd and 26th June.
As mentioned, the formula is the same here. On the exterior, you get gloss black upper & lower grille, dark headlight & taillight bezels, black quad tailpipe finishers, and of course, an ‘S’ badging on the front fenders. The luxury limo rides on 22-inch Y-spoke wheels in gloss black finish, or alternatively, in Pale Brodgar satin finish. A 21-inch tri-spoke wheel design can also be found in the options list. But no matter which wheel you choose, the calipers are gonna be painted red. Only the winged Bentley badge and lettering on the bootlid are in a bright chrome finish.
Inside, the S design seats are fluted, with quilting available as an option; notice the ‘S’ emblem embroidered on the headrest of each seat, while embroidered Bentley wings are a no-cost alternative. For the upholstery, buyers can choose from performance-focused two-tone color splits, which combine leather and Dinamica. The latter is a suede-like material, used for the heated steering wheel, shift lever, seat cushions and seat backrests, while leather is employed on the seat bolsters, door pads, along the dashboard and around the centre console. The driver display features the same graphics as the Continental GT Speed.
The Flying Spur S is available either with a 404.5 kW (550 metric hp) 4.0L V8 biturbo petrol or with a 400 kW (544 metric hp) V6 hybrid powertrain. While the V8 model gets a sports exhaust system, the hybrid variant offers sound enhancements (in Sport mode) to match the S variant’s sporty character.
