Available only for the V8-powered version, the brand new Beluga Specification is basically a cosmetics package as it does not bring any mechanical upgrades for the luxurious four-door British sedan. The styling revisions can be noticed at the front where the lower grille bar now has the same color as the rest of the body while the grille adopts a glossy black matrix appearance. The regular wheels were removed to make room for a new set of 20-inch machined alloys which have a black and bright look.
Photos of the interior cabin are not available at this point, but Bentley says they have installed knurled gear shift paddles, piano black veneers and contrast stitching while the trunk carpet has contrasting leather biding. The list of tweaks continues with deep pile floor mats, contrast stitching for the steering wheel and seats to enable what the company is describing “the perfect enhancement for a modern performance saloon that perfectly blends craft and comfort.”
The Bentley Flying Spur Beluga can also be ordered with the Mulliner Driving Specification which can be distinguished by the larger 21-inch, six-spoke Extrovert wheels and several interior cabin enhancements such as the drilled alloy pedals, knurled gear lever, diamond quilted hides and an indented hide headlining. The 2015 model year has introduced a suite of upgrades, including new tactile features and the availability of an on-board Wi-Fi connection.
Power of the special Flying Spur comes from the standard twin-turbocharged V8 4.0-liter engine pushing out 507 bhp which enables the large sedan to run the 0-100 kmph in only 4.9 seconds and travel for up to 804 km on a single tank of gasoline.
Those who are interested in getting the model can already place an order and Bentley says they will begin worldwide deliveries sometime this fall.
