        Bentley Flying Spur Expert Review

        New for 2017

        The Flying Spur lineup has been expanded with the addition of the V8 S model. The V8 S gets a unique body color bumper, dark front grille, dark tinted front and rear lights, 20-inch open spoke wheels, and optional black gloss door mirrors. Inside is a knurled finish on the gear selector and paddle shifters, a unique color split for the leather trim, V8 S embroidery on the seats, and V8 S logos on the treadplates.

        Vehicle Summary

        The Flying Spur is Bentley's mainstream sedan, positioned below the larger, hand-built Mulsanne.


        The base model in the 2017 Bentley Flying Spur lineup is the V8, which is powered by a 500-hp version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that also delivers 487 lb-ft of torque. The V8 S ups those numbers to 521 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. The top-of-the-range Flying Spur is powered by the same 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W-12 engine as the 12-cylinder Continental GT, and boasts 616 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

        The 12-cylinder Flying Spur will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 4.3 seconds, and reach a top speed of 200 mph. Despite that startling performance from a 5,456-pound luxury car that's more than 17 feet long, the Flying Spur returns 20 mpg on the highway and 12 mpg in the city. The Flying Spur V8 takes 4.9 seconds to get to 60mph, and has a top speed of 183 mph. It gets 24 mpg on the highway, and 14 mpg around town. The Flying Spur V8 S splits the difference in terms of performance with a 4.6-second 0 to 60 mph acceleration time, and 190 mph top speed, but delivers the same fuel efficiency as the regular V-8.

        All Flying Spur models are all-wheel drive, and have an eight speed automatic transmission and air suspension. Available options include a glass sunroof, veneered picnic tables in the rear of the front seats, and a champagne bottle cooler.


        The Bentley Flying Spur has not yet been rated by the NHTSA or the IIHS.

        What We Think

        Originally a sedan version of the Continental GT Coupe, the Flying Spur still shares much of its basic structure and mechanical hardware with the sportier two-door Bentley, but has evolved into its own model line. A major restyle in 2013 clearly separated the Flying Spur from the Continental GT, giving it a unique rear end. The restyle also gave the car a sportier roofline than the previous model, which debuted in 2005.

        As with all Bentleys, the Flying Spur's combination of performance, size and luxury never fails to impress. With its 200-mph top speed the 12-cylinder Flying Spur is one of the fastest sedans in the world, faster even than its bigger, more expensive sibling, the Bentley Mulsanne Speed. Yet even at triple digit speeds the cabin remains eerily quiet. High speed stability is outstanding, helped by the standard all-wheel-drive system.

        Ride quality can sometime fail to meet luxury car expectations, however, especially if the Flying Spur is fitted with aggressive low-profile sports tires. "While the Flying Spur glides down the road most of the time, there were a few occasions when the sedan couldn't completely mask potholes and bumps," we noted in our First Test. But if you enjoy supercar acceleration in near silence, we added, you won't be disappointed.

        Like the Continental GT, the Flying Spur's aging platform means it lacks a state-of-the-art infotainment interface, though a WiFi hotspot is available as part of an optional multimedia package. It also lacks the latest in driver aids, including forward collision alert, lane keeping assist, and blind spot warning systems.

        Cool Fact

        Flying Spur was the name given by coachbuilder H. J. Mulliner to a four-door body fitted to a Bentley Continental chassis in 1957.
