It looks like Bentley is going to be offering its customers an all-new option for the V8 Flying Spur. You may recall Bentley overhauled the Flying Spur not too long ago and introduced a V8 motor to the lineup.

Although the Continental GT received a V8 S model, the Flying Spur did not get the same kit. However, from the sounds of it, the all-new Beluga specification may be the package to fill that gap.

Now offered exclusively on V8 Flying Spurs, the Beluga spec adds the following:

- Lowered stance
- 20-inch wheels
- Gloss black front grille
- Body-colored radiator bar
- Piano black veneer
- Knurled metal interior bits

After spending some time behind the wheel of the Continental GT V8 S, this sounds like a similar appearance package that excludes a power bump. So, if you're looking for a V8 Flying Spur and want to have some swagger, the Beluga may be your best bet.

Bentley's press release follows:


  • New optional specification affords luxury four-door sedan an enhanced athletic stance
  • Striking exterior and interior styling cues boost visual appeal
  • Features 20” alloys, gloss black radiator and cabin styling highlights
  • Available exclusively on 4.0-litre twin-turbo Flying Spur V8 models

Bentley Motors is launching a new specification level exclusively for its Flying Spur V8 model – Beluga Specification.

The contemporary trim level affords the Flying Spur sedan a more athletic stance and purposeful visual appeal. Featuring exclusive 20” Black and Bright machined alloy wheels, a gloss black radiator matrix and a body-coloured lower grille bar, the Beluga specification is the perfect enhancement for a modern performance saloon that perfectly blends craft and comfort.

Inside the Flying Spur V8’s sumptuous handcrafted cabin, buyers will find swathes of piano black veneer, knurled gear shift paddles, contrast stitching to the luxurious seats and steering wheel as well as deep pile floor mats and boot carpet with contrasting leather binding.

When customers also specify the highly popular Mulliner Driving Specification, in combination with Beluga specification, the striking 21” 6-spoke Extrovert wheel is included. The Mulliner Driving Specification includes features such as diamond quilted hides, a knurled gear lever, drilled alloy pedals and an indented hide headlining.

In 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 guise it develops 507 PS (500 bhp), sprinting from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds) while at the same time offering a single-tank range of 500 miles.  The athletic design of the Flying Spur combines traditional Bentley styling cues with a dynamic stance and contemporary details, further enhanced in the Beluga specification.

Designed for comfort and refinement, the Flying Spur has benefitted from a suite of upgrades and enhancements for 2015. The exquisite cabin gains modern and tactile new features (as well as onboard WiFi) to maintain Bentley’s reputation for interior style and usability.

Flying Spur V8 Beluga is available to order now worldwide with first customer deliveries in the autumn.
