Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Goes Dark With New Black Edition

It’s another day with a Y at the end, and you know what that means: that’s right, another special-edition Bentley!

This time it’s the Flying Spur that gets the special treatment in the form of the new Black Edition.

Based on the Flying Spur V8 S, the Black Edition is distinguished by -as you might have guessed- black trim. The lights all around are framed in black and tinted darker, and all the brightwork is blacked out and glossy – including the window frames, the door mirrors, and the unique set of 21-inch alloys.

Inside the cabin features piano black lacquer trim, the Sport Plus steering wheel, and two-tone leather. Combine the Black Edition with the Mulliner Driving Specification package and you get diamond-quilted leather and a different set of wheels (also 21 inches in diameter).

This being the more potent S model, motivation comes courtesy of Bentley‘s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, sending 521 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels for a 4.6-second 0-60 time and a 190-mph top speed. And while we wouldn’t call a vehicle this large “stealthy,” per se, it’s bound to fly further under the radar than the usual chromed-out luxury sedan.
