REVIEW: 2017 Bentley Flying Spur V8 S

It really is quite expensive says Graeme, no kidding!

You know there are cars and then there are cars now this is the bentley flying spur v8s it really is quite expensive but for the lucky few it is one serious ride in the world of high-flying ultra luxurious sedans with sporting flair there really is only one named bentley it harks back to a bygone era when the bentley boys won the 24 hours aleman in 1924 since then

The company has been through some turbulent times but the one constant has always been luxurious quality one of the key differences between the flying spur v8 and this v8 s boils down to power now this thing has got 521 horsepower which is up 21 and 502 pound-feet of torque which is up 15 now those numbers are very small but they do make a discernible difference

Now this thing will get you from rest to 100k in 4.9 seconds considering that this is a 2,500 kilogram car that is very quick the flying spur v8s uses a four liter twin-turbo v8 that delivers 521 horsepower which is 21 more than the base model the real power however is found in the 502 pound-feet of torque at 1,700 rpm it gives the engine a very broad power

Plateau it is also the model of stability regardless of how hard the engines being worked the noise that does filter back to the cabin only serves to give the driver a sense of what’s happening it sounds powerful yet it’s suitably muted now this flying spur v8s comes with all-wheel-drive it normally sends 40% of the drive for the front wheels and 60% to the rear

That means it preserves the rear drive characteristics you expect of a bentley now if it decides that slippage is going to happen it jumps in to prevent that from occurring in practice it works seamlessly and remained invisible during the test drive now that is the hallmark of a very good system the engine is teamed with a slick 8-speed automatic transmission

The shifts are barely detectable under normal driving however trumped the gas pedal and it’s quick to kick down and access the engines power when purring around town leave the box in drive find a challenging piece of road and click sport the powertrain is now much sharper the cabin of this flying spur really is to die for the materials are out of this world the

Fit and finish is right where it should be and the seats are as comfortable as anything i’ve ever tried now the defining point well it comes where tradition meets modern modern is found in the form of a brand new infotainment system it looks after everything very well indeed now the tradition these organ stocks that control events as they say you get what you

Pay for when it comes to ride and handling the flying spur is equal measures of both the computer controlled air suspension does a very good job of isolating the riders from the rigors of a rough road yet when the road takes a turn for the better the amount of body roll is well controlled likewise the steering is quick to react to input in the end the mechanical

Attributes deliver a car that’s lies it’s full-sized luxurious status you know there really is no getting around the fact that this flying spur v8s is very expensive however if you are what you drive it might just make you beat man about town
