Bentley has launched the Flying Spur V8 in India and have priced it at Rs 3.10 crore. Prices, however, are subject to exchange rate fluctuations, and are likely go up as one adds upgrades/additional options to the car. The W12 version of the Bentley Flying Spur was launched in India last year, and the V8 version joins the range at a considerably lower price tag.

The major highlight of the Bentley Flying Spur V8, as you would have guessed it already, is its engine. The new 3993cc V8 engine is backed by a twin-turbo induction system, which helps it put out 507PS of power and 660Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a ZF-sourced dual-clutch 8 speed transmission that routes power to all of the four wheels.

Bentley claims 0-100Km/h comes in just 5.2 seconds for the Flying Spur V8, while the top speed is limited to 295km/h. The V8 engine also features fuel-saving cylinder deactivation technology which can shut off up to four cylinders at light load conditions. The Flying Spur lives by its grand tourer image with a range of more than 700km on a tankful of fuel, says Bentley.

On visual front, the Flying Spur V8 comes with subtle changes to distinguish it from the more powerful W12 version. This includes a red background around the Bentley logo, front lower bumper grille finished in black and figure of eight-chromed exhaust tips on the V8 version.
