Bentley recently unveiled the sportier Continental GT S and now it’s amping up the performance of the Flying Spur with the introduction of a new S version as well.
The Bentley Flying Spur S can be powered by either a V8 or a hybrid powertrain. The V8 is a 4.0-liter with 542 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. The V8 accelerates the Flying Spur from 0-62 mph in 4 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph. The hybrid powertrain features a 2.9-liter V6 and an electric motor that generate a combined 536 horsepower and 553 pound-feet. The Flying Spur S hybrid has a 26 mile all-electric range.
It also gets Dynamic Ride suspension system, which can apply up to 1,300 Newton-meters of anti-roll torque when cornering. The Flying Spur S also has all-wheel steering, which can turn the rear wheels in the opposite direction of the front wheel by up to 4.2 degrees.
On the outside the Flying Spur S stands out with its gloss black trim, red brake calipers and 21- or 22-inch wheels. Inside it features a two-tone color scheme with leather and synthetic suede seats.
The 2023 Bentley Flying Spur S will debut later this month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
