Spyshots: 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur V8
This is the shape of the next generation o Continental Flying Spur, powered by the same twin-turbo V8 engine as GT coupe. Eight cylinders instead of twelve might sound like 2/3 the fun, but that’s simply not the case. The engine will provide better economy, a lighter car and sportier noise... if that’s ever concerned a luxury buyer. You can also expect the Flying Spur V8 to be cheaper than the W12 version.
Under that fake BMW face is a completely new style for Bentley, previewed by the EXP 9F SUV concept.
500 horsepower, zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in about five seconds and a top speed of around 180 mph should ensure a much sportier vehicle than any we’ve seen so far.
