Bentley’s Flying Spur sedan, updated early last year with new looks and new tech, has now been given a V8 option for 2014.

Already featured in the updated Continental GT range, the Flying Spur’s new twin-turbo and direct-injected 4.0 litre V8 offers a healthy 373kW and 660Nm.

In Flying Spur form, the V8 delivers a 0-100km/h time of just 5.2 seconds - compared to 4.8 for the CGT - with a top speed of 295km/h.

All of that goes through ZF’s familiar eight-speed automatic transmission, sending power to the Spur’s all-wheel-drive system.

For those planning luxurious cross-country trips, the V8 Flying Spur boasts a huge 840km driving range - thanks to cylinder deactivation, intelligent thermal management and energy recuperation systems.

Watch for details of the V8 Flying Spur’s Australian debut.

2014 Continental GT Speed: Style And Power Upgrades

Bentley’s Continental GT Speed models have been given a going-over for 2014, including a small power boost, updated styling and new features.

Power from the Speed’s 6.0 litre W12 is up 8kW and 20Nm to a whopping 466kW and 820Nm of torque.

The GT Speed and GTC Speed convertible remain Bentley’s fastest ever production models, too, with top speeds of 331 and 327km/h respectively.

Styling and aero updates include a new front splitter, side skids and rear diffuser, each now matched to the car’s body colour.

The Speed models’ 21-inch rims have been given a new dark shadow finish, and a similar effect has been added to the front and rear lights.

There’s also new red brake calipers and chrome ‘Speed’ badges on the front quarter panels.

In the cabin, there’s new dash and console features, new trim options and new Speed badging.
