Bentley has revealed the Flying Spur S, the latest model in the British luxury marque’s “driver-focused” “S” portfolio, alongside the recently-revealed Continental GT S and its convertible counterpart, the GTC S. According to the Crewe-based company, “The Flying Spur S brings extra dimensions of increased dynamic ability, dramatic visual presence and heightened aural drama.” 

Like its grand-tourer stablemates, the Flying Spur S is distinguished by black brightware for an “athletic” and “understated” look. The grille is finished in gloss black, as are the items lower down. The gloss black hue is carried over to the tailpipes and “S” badging. The head- and taillamps have been tinted. 

The Flying Spur S is available with “all-new” 22-inch wheels, finished in gloss black or new Pale Brodgar Satin. Gloss black 21-inch alloys are also available.

The cabin features “fluted” S design seats. The pews feature embroidered “S” emblems on the headrests. 

The reveal of the latest “S” derivative also signifies a first for the brand. The Flying Spur S is the first “S”-badged model to offer a hybrid or V8 powertrain. The former arrangement comprises a 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine with an “advanced” electric motor. The petrol-electric unit produces a combined output of 400 kW and 750 Nm of torque for a claimed 0-100 km/h sprint time of 4.1 seconds, a “mere” 0.1 seconds slower than the V8-powered derivative. 

Blasting to the three-figure marker in a claimed 4.0 seconds flat, the V8 model is endowed with 405 kW and 770 Nm of torque. The top speed is rated at 319 km/h.
