Amazingly, there are people in this world who think that a Bentley is just another car. Well, for those who think that, Bentley offers a number of upgrades for all of its rigs, and the latest is the Beluga Specification option for the Flying Spur.
The exterior mods that come with this kit are fairly mild, and they include 20-inch black and bright machined alloy wheels, a gloss-black radiator matrix, and a body-colored lower grille bar.
The cabin of the Beluga Specification Flying Spur includes piano-black veneers, knurled paddle shifters, contrast stitching, and deep-pile floor mats with leather binding.
Buyers who combine the Beluga Specification with the Mulliner Driving Specification also get the 21-inch Extrovert wheels, diamond-quilted leather, a knurled gear shifter knob, drilled alloy pedals, and an indented leather headliner.
Under the hood of the Beluga Specification Flying Spur is the standard 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that produces 500 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. This powerful V-8 gets the Flying Spur up to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 183 mph. With this speed comes a price, as this thirsty V-8 chugs down a gallon of fuel every 14 miles in the city, every 24 miles on the highway, and every 17 miles on the combined cycle.
There is no mention of price nor does it mention where this model will be available. From the sounds of it, I think this will be a Europe-exclusive model, but it’s hard to say with Bentley. What I do know is that it’ll be available starting in the fall of 2015.
