Bentley has unveiled the Black Edition of the Flying Spur V8 S. It comes with a host of cosmetic enhancements. On the outside the headlamps and tail lamps have dark tint and black bezels, while the window surrounds, radiator, door handle inserts and headlight washer caps are garnished with glossy black finish. Keeping the black theme intact, the overhauling on the outside is completed with 21-inch, seven-spoke black alloy wheels.
On the inside, the car gets piano black veneer in the layout and a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel. However, the interior is livened up by contrasting stripes of stitched leather hide that covers the four seats’ centre panels and garnishes the headrests as well. The colour combo is also found in the headliner bow that runs through the centre of the roof. But if all that is a bit too much for you, Bentley will give you an option for a different colour combination with a range of interior colours and colour splits.
Mechanically though, the Black Edition remains exactly the same as the standard Flying Spur V8 S. That means the twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 pumps out 528PS of power and 680Nm of torque. The eight-speed automatic transmission harnesses all the power effectively and delivers it in an all-wheel drive system. The result? 0-100kmph is dealt with in 4.9 seconds and the Bentley pulls all the way up to 306kmph.
