So we got a 2015 Bentley Flying Spur V8
The Flying Spur is Bentley’s idea of a sporting sedan — big, elegant, powerful and able to outhandle all sorts of smaller cars. And this here is the V8 version, slotting in below the W12 models.
Visually, you’d never know it’s a lesser model though. The best clues are the red “B” badges and the figure-8 exhaust tips.
Inside, the previous Continental’s interior carries over to this one almost exactly, except for certain technological upgrades.
Rear passengers are cossetted in luxury, with tray-tables, wireless touchscreen remote, massage seats and what not.
In terms of performance, the Flying Spur hardly loses any speed by downgrading to a V8 engine, which is more impressive than anything else on this well-loaded car. More on that in the full review.
