Bentley is launching a new specification level for its Flying Spur V8 model dubbed ‘Beluga’. The name is a reference to the company’s traditional ‘Beluga black’ colour scheme.
The new trim level features 20” machined alloy wheels, a gloss black radiator matrix and a body-coloured lower grille bar.
Inside, occupants will find piano black veneer, knurled gear shift paddles, contrast stitching to the seats and steering wheel as well as deep pile floor mats and boot carpet with contrasting leather binding. Other interior upgrades and enhancements for 2015 include onboard WiFi.
In 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 guise the Beluga develops 500 bhp, managing 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds while at the same time delivering a claimed single-tank range of 500 miles.
First customer deliveries of the Beluga are expected in the autumn.
