This past Sunday, September 7, marked the private release of the 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur V8 edition at Bentley Atlanta. A few months ago we brought you the release of the Continental GT (coupe) V8 and V8S. This go-round, there were even more people, more cars, and great conversation.
If you weren’t outside to marvel at the plush interiors of the new V8’s, you could enjoy a fresh mimosa, 4 different types of crepes, and even get a quick massage. This private unveiling had it all. There were plenty of salespeople available for questions, test drives, and an explanation of features for the vehicles.
The all-new Bentley Flying Spur V8 combines an upright grille, large jewel LED headlamps, sharp fender wing vents, a wide body and the Flying Spur’s familiar contemporary design lines to present a muscular yet elegant exterior design. A powerful 4.0 V8 twin-turbocharged engine produces 507PS of power and 660Nm of torque awaits under the hood.
Inside this amazing vehicle, the control has been placed firmly in the rear passengers hands, via an integrated Touch Screen Remote (TSR). The TSR is located in the centre of the rear console and can be removed from its docking station so rear occupants can reach it more easily. The TSR controls the rear window blind and rear climate conditions as well as the seat heating and ventilation (where fitted). The TSR also allows volume adjustment of the front infotainment system plus switching between radio, media, and map modes. The speed, current time and vehicle trip information is also displayed on the TSR.
Music lovers will opt for the flagship Naim for Bentley Premium audio system, arguably the finest in-car entertainment available. Incorporating 11 custom-built Balanced Mode Radiator Speakers. This exclusive Naim system sets new standards in audio enjoyment creating total surround quality sound reproduction for every occupant.
Bentley Brunch Part II was extremely entertaining (with sounds by Mike Zarin) and the conversation was as good as the food. We’re already looking forward to the next unveiling.
