Is there going to be a Bentley Kitchen Sink?
Last week Bentley announced that it was rolling out S variants of their V8-powered GT and GTC models. This week they brought their A-Game to IAA town by showing off the V8 S models in the metal. Available in both coupe and convertible forms, the V8 S models features a twin-turbo, 4 Litre engine that achieves 521 HP and 502 lb-ft. of torque, sprinting to 0-60 in 4.3 secs and tops out at 192 mph. Equally impressive is the fuel economy, reaching 500 miles on a single tank.
Also displayed was the all-new 4 door sedan Flying Spur that was announced in March, the same model that recently caught the attention and checkbook of noted hip hop artist named after a verb tense for something that hasn’t happened yet. The Flying Spur is powered by Bentley’s 6 L twin-turbo W12 engine good 616 HP, and 800 NM of torque allowing for a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. Rounding off their announcement was interior, sound system, and communication upgrades to the flagship Mulsanne line, allowing it to functinon as a second office. As if all of that wasn't enough, the company is also releasing a new line of luxury leather handbags, furniture and even homeware.
