Bentley’s Flying Spur received a number of updates for 2016, including new wheel and leather options as well as cylinder-deactivation tech for its W-12 engine. The automaker has now announced that the big sedan also has a sporty new trim that’s available to order now for delivery this fall.
The new trim, called Beluga, is available exclusively on V-8-powered Flying Spurs and help give the sedans a slightly more athletic appearance. This is achieved using custom 20-inch wheels with a black finish, a matching black finish for the mesh in the front grille, and a body-colored strip in the lower valance.
Inside the Flying Spur V8 Beluga's sumptuous handcrafted cabin, you’ll find swathes of piano black veneer, knurled gear shift paddles, contrast stitching on the seats and steering wheel, as well as deep-pile carpeting for the floor mats and trunk surfaces.
There is also a whole host of Mulliner Driving Specification add-ons, such as 21-inch wheels with a pattern called Extrovert, as well as quilted leather trim, a knurled gear lever, drilled alloy pedals and an indented leather headliner.
Under the hood sits the familiar twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, which has a 500-horsepower rating. It rockets the Flying Spur from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds while at the same time is frugal enough to see a single tank of gas take you 500 miles.
