2015 Bentley Flying Spur Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Bentley Flying Spur Concept. 2015 Bentley Flying Spur changes is one brand new car from Audi that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Bentley Flying Spur Release Date.
Why would any potential buyer of a Bentley Flying Spur a rolling symbol of a life lived large ever choose an engine that has less power and fewer cylinders than the existing 6.0-liter W-12? We can pretty much discount price. The new V-8 model is $20,700 cheaper than the one powered by the W-12, and that would be considered a sizable discount in the real world. But as the V-8 still carries a base price of $197,825, it’s fair to assume that anyone who could afford it might easily stretch to the W-12. Specify a V-8 with the premium audio system, rear screens, and those all-important walnut picnic tables, and you’ve already offset the price difference between the two cars.
The eight-cylinder does give better gas mileage, in the unlikely event this matters any. It uses selective cylinder shutdown to turn itself into a V-4 under gentle use. But with the possible exception of Scrooge McDuck, it’s doubtful this will be a concern to many modern millionaires. It’s true that in some parts of the world the V-8 engine’s smaller displacement and more modest carbon-dioxide emissions will save buyers tens of thousands a year in taxes. But since the U.S. hasn’t succumbed to the forces of eco-Marxism quite yet, this difference can also be discounted.

2015 Bentley Flying Spur Interior
Dynamic differences are relatively modest. The V-8 car is about 330 pounds lighter than the one with the W-12, with most of that mass coming off the front end. As a result, it turns slightly more willingly and steers with more precision. This hasn’t transformed the car, which still feels substantial in a premium luxury way. The ride quality is Bentley plush, deeply appreciated over some of the broken British back roads on which we drove the car. The air suspension offers four levels of damping, with even the softest keeping the body under tight control when asked to deal with asphalt that seemed to have been relaid for the last time under (or possibly over) Queen Victoria.
The Flying Spur V8’s interior monotone color split for a super-luxurious look and feel, and includes Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus wood veneer. Technology is plentiful as well, as the new Bentley Bentley comes with a touchscreen remote mounted in the center console, which allows the rear-seat riders to control the climate control system and infotainment system without asking the driver.
The Mulliner Driving Specification is also available on the Flying Spur V8, which adds in diamond quilting on the seats, knurled gear shifter, drilled alloy pedals, perforated leather headliner, jewel fuel and oil filler caps, embroidered Bentley wings on the headrests, a 4+1 rear seat with full adjustment and lumbar support, Dark Stained Burr and Piano Black highlights and 17 upholstery colors.
2015 Bentley Flying Spur Exterior
As with the rest of the Continental clan, the V-8 Spur’s four-wheel-drive system has been set up to ensure maximum traction at all times, and there’s never any sense that you can do much to influence your cornering line via the throttle. Not that you should try to, of course you might spill the rear-seat occupants’ champagne. The eight-speed autobox shuffles its ratios smoothly and seamlessly in everyday use, but requests for sudden acceleration seem to confuse it momentarily as it delivers multiple kickdowns, one after the other. You can sharpen it by sliding the gear selector into Sport mode or taking control of selection yourself via the paddles located behind the steering wheel.
On the outside, the Flying Spur V8 is nearly identical to its big brother, save for a few minor distinguishing characteristics. Up front, the V8 model shows its differences by way of a red center on the winged badge, black-finished bumper grilles and a black “wing” insert. Sure these differences are subtle, but this is nothing new to Bentley.
Around back there are even fewer cues that this model is new, as the only difference between this variant and the W-12 model are the figure-eight exhaust tips on the Flying Spur V8.
2015 Bentley Flying Spur Engine
The V-8 power found under the hood is no stranger to us, as we’ve seen this 4.0-liter in various Bentley models, including the Continental GT . The purpose here is obviously to improve upon the company’s current corporate fuel economy, as the V-8 powerplant adds 2 mpg city, 4 mpg highway and 2 mpg combined to the W-12 engine’s numbers.
U.S. buyers have already been able to choose the V-8 engine in the Continental coupe and convertible, and a take rate nearing 50 percent proves it possesses an appeal beyond its modest cost saving. The Flying Spur V-8 confirms that, when it comes to Bentleys, less really can be more.
Sure, the Flying Spur V8 gets a few distinguishing tidbits here and there on the inside and outside, but the real difference lies under the hood. This is where Bentley dropped in its 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 that cranks out 500 horsepower and 660 Nm (487 pound-feet) of torque this is a 116-horsepower and 103-pound-feet drop from the W-12 engine. This V-8 powerplant hooks up to the same ZF-sourced eight-speed autobox as the W-12 model and delivers power to all four wheels.
