Bentley has recently announced its plans to offer the Flying Spur with a new engine, which will actually be smaller than the one already available for the luxurious model.
The Bentley Flying Spur is getting ready to receive a brand new engine and this may be good news for you if you’re planning to get such a vehicle to your garage, because it will cut down and fuel consumption and the tax paid annually for it will decrease. The brand new engine, which will be used for the Bentley Flying Spur, will be a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8, which is developing a total output of 500 HP (373 kW) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque.
The unit in question is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, signed by ZF, which is sending the power to the all-wheel drive system, allowing the luxurious vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.2 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 295 km/h (183 mph). The total range of the car stands at 840 km (520 miles) and this is possible thanks to the electrical recuperation, to the cylinder deactivation and the intelligent thermal management systems, added to it.
The only engine available, until now, for the Bentley Flying Spur, was a massive 6.0 liter W12 twin turbo, which is producing a total output of 617 HP (460 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. More details on the updated vehicle, with its new engine, will be announced this spring, when the model in question will start its deliveries.
