2015 Bentley Flying Spur V8 model gets Beluga Specification

Article by Christian A., on June 18, 2015

Bentley fans will be happy to know that the British manufacturer launched a new specification level for the Flying Spur. Called Beluga Specification, this will be available only on the V8-powered Flying Spur and will offer a more athletic stance and purposeful visual appeal.

As you can see from the photos, the sedan rides on exclusive 20-inch Black and Bright machined alloy wheels, while featuring a gloss black radiator matrix and body-coloured lower grille bar.

Same theme is continued at the interior where we find a handcrafted cabin with piano black veneer, knurled gear shift paddles, contrast stitching to the seats and steering wheel as well as deep pile floor mats. According to Bentley, its customers will be able to specify also the Mulliner Driving Specification, in combination with Beluga specification.

This adds 21-inch 6-spoke Extrovert wheels, while the interior receives diamond quilted hides, a knurled gear lever, drilled alloy pedals and indended hid healing. Under the hood, there is a twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 507 PS, able to push the sedan from 0 to 100 km/(62 mph) in 5.2 seconds.

Bentley says that its engine will be able to offer a range of 500 miles with a single tank of fuel.

NEW BENTLEY FLYING SPUR BELUGA SPECIFICATION

Bentley Motors is launching a new specification level exclusively for its Flying Spur V8 model – Beluga Specification.

The contemporary trim level affords the Flying Spur sedan a more athletic stance and purposeful visual appeal. Featuring exclusive 20" Black and Bright machined alloy wheels, a gloss black radiator matrix and a body-coloured lower grille bar, the Beluga specification is the perfect enhancement for a modern performance saloon that perfectly blends craft and comfort.

Inside the Flying Spur V8's sumptuous handcrafted cabin, buyers will find swathes of piano black veneer, knurled gear shift paddles, contrast stitching to the luxurious seats and steering wheel as well as deep pile floor mats and boot carpet with contrasting leather binding.

When customers also specify the highly popular Mulliner Driving Specification, in combination with Beluga specification, the striking 21" 6-spoke Extrovert wheel is included. The Mulliner Driving Specification includes features such as diamond quilted hides, a knurled gear lever, drilled alloy pedals and an indented hide headlining.

In 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 guise it develops 507 PS (500 bhp), sprinting from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds) while at the same time offering a single-tank range of 500 miles. The athletic design of the Flying Spur combines traditional Bentley styling cues with a dynamic stance and contemporary details, further enhanced in the Beluga specification.

Designed for comfort and refinement, the Flying Spur has benefitted from a suite of upgrades and enhancements for 2015. The exquisite cabin gains modern and tactile new features (as well as onboard WiFi) to maintain Bentley's reputation for interior style and usability.

Flying Spur V8 Beluga is available to order now worldwide with first customer deliveries in the autumn.
