Pretty fast for a Bentley. Is a massive ultra-Luxury sedan from England really that fast? Well, take a look at the Bentley Flying Spur V8 during its Autobahn top seep run to almost 175 mph. Although it may not look fast a first glance, there’s far more to the Bentley Flying Spur than a leather-clad interior with massage seats. The Bentley Flying Spur V8 may be built in Crewe, England, however, it has some help from its friends in Germany.

Open the doors, and the black accents reveal themselves. The Bentley Flying Spur V8 S Black Edition adds an extra dash of style onto an already opulent luxury sedan. However, taking an initial look at it immediately raises the question why this special four-door deserves the dark name. Update: Bentley Flying Spur Can't Keep Its Camouflage On For Much Longer The dark accents are really evident inside. The seats feature black center sections with red accent stripes on each side. Drivers grip a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel and Piano Black veneers decorate the cabin. The Black Edition is also available with the optional Mulliner Driving Specification. The higher-spec version adds diamond-quilted leather with contrasting stitching and 21-inch five-spoke wheels in either gloss black or dark tint finishes.

The luxobarge looks majestic even when hiding under a car cover. We’ve been spying on the new Bentley Flying Spur since October 2016 , back when test mules were carrying Porsche Panamera bodies. Fast forward to present day, we still haven’t seen Crewe’s fullsize luxury sedan in full, but prototypes are being caught with less and less camouflage with each new batch of spy shots. Revealed: 2020 Bentley Flying Spur Debuts As W12 Luxobarge With 626 HP This particular Flying Spur is a bit more interesting than the others since it’s the electrified version. That’s right – the new generation will feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain joining the familiar V8 and W12 versions of the luxobarge. The prototype was caught charging its battery pack, which will be a part of a PHEV system likely inherited from the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. It won’t be the exact same setup as the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid since the opulent SUV uses a slightly bigger 3.0-liter unit whereas … [Read more...] about Bentley Flying Spur PHEV Caught Recharging Its Battery
What is going on here? What car would you take to the Nürburgring for a track day? For this Mercedes-Benz test driver, it appears they love spending a day at the Ring piloting a Maybach S-Class . Why is Mercedes-Benz testing out an ultra-luxury sedan around the Nürburgring even though owners will never take their chauffer-friendly luxury barges to a track? We have a few theories. The upcoming Maybach S-Class was recently teased with the upcoming celebration of 100 years of Maybach. This unique ultra-long Maybach S-Class code-named the Z223 will feature a rarity in modern car manufacturing, a true V12 engine. So why take a Maybach S-Class to the Nürburgring? We believe they’re testing out their new V12 engine that needs to handle extreme conditions. With the V12 engine absent from most of the Mercedes-Benz lineup their choices for test cars are limited, which is why a long-wheelbase Maybach S-Class is lapping the Nürburgring with some frequency. More Mercedes-Benz … [Read more...] about Why Is Mercedes Still Testing The Maybach S-Class At The ‘Ring?
Only ten of them were ever made, and this particular car now belongs to McLaren. McLaren made a total of 106 F1s during the supercar’s lifetime between the years 1992 and 1999, and the GTR Longtail served as a last hurrah. An evolution of the 1995 GTR that triumphed at the 24-hour Le Mans endurance race, the Longtail version brought some significant body changes to boost downforce and as a consequence further improve the race car’s already mind-blowing performances. Internally known as the “ F1 GT”, a name which was used for three road-going versions of the race car, the long-tailed machine also received a fully adjustable suspension and a six-speed sequential transmission enabling faster gear shifts. Perhaps the most significant modification compared to its predecessor was the drastic weight loss of 135 kilograms (297 pounds) to a very low 915 kg (2,017 lbs) for a vehicle equipped with a BMW V12 6.0-liter engine pushing out 600 horsepower (448 kilowatts) and 480 … [Read more...] about Blast from the past: McLaren revisits the stunning F1 GTR Longtail
