Bentley Flying Spur V8 video review: 2021's best luxury limo?

Bentley V8 web

Crewe’s fast luxury saloon loses over 100kg in the switch from W12 to V8 power. Does fewer cylinders mean greater driver appeal?

The 2021 Bentley Flying Spur is a thing of loveliness. The 6.0-litre W12 version of Bentley’s luxury saloon has already been launched and we already think it’s fabulous and has little to fear from the luxury rivals like the Rolls-Royce Ghost.

But Bentleys often get better when they receive the smaller, lighter, 4.0-litre V8 engine instead. And this is that version.

The Flying Spur V8 is cheaper than the W12 but barely any slower. It costs from £156,130 in the UK and because it has 542bhp and 568lb ft, it’s still capable of 0-60mph in 4.0sec and a top speed of 198mph. 

Join Matt Prior as we discover just how competitive the new Flying Spur V8 is. Is it this year’s luxury sedan to beat?
