The test vehicle’s fenders were playing the striptease game as some of the black tape was missing to reveal the Flying Spur’s true beige color, but still not enough to give us the opportunity to better see what will essentially be a Continental GT sedan.

Checking the prototype’s license plate with U.K.’s Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency revealed a W12 6.0-liter biturbo engine was hiding underneath the long hood, but its output is not known for the time being. In the new Conti it churns a 626 horsepower (467 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) whereas in the Bentayga it’s slightly less powerful, at 600 hp (447 kW), with the same amount of torque.

Bentley Bentayga Gains V8 Gasoline Engine With 542 Horsepower

  Bentley Bentayga Gains V8 Gasoline Engine With 542 Horsepower Can't afford the W12? The V8 should suffice. Bentley originally introduced the company’s first-ever SUV, the Bentayga, in September 2015 with the mighty W12 engine. About a year later, the opulent luxobarge borrowed the Audi SQ7’s biturbo 4.0-liter V8 TDI for the controversial diesel-powered version. Fast forward to present day, the folks from Crewe are ready to spice up the range furthermore by launching another V8 version, this time around a gasoline engine with a 4.0-liter displacement and a pair of turbochargers.

Although it won’t be as posh as the next-generation of Bentley’s range-topping Mulsanne, the new Flying Spur will still represent a significant step ahead in terms of luxury compared to the Volkswagen Group’s most recent big sedan, the new Audi A8. Inside and out, the new Flying Spur will likely take after the sportier Continental GT, but obviously with a few extra trinkets for those kicking it back on the lavish individual rear seats.

Will we see the new Flying Spur in Geneva? It’s not known at this point, but if it won’t be there, there’s a good chance Bentley will host the world premiere at the beginning of October during the 2018 Paris Motor Show.

Next-Generation Bentley Mulsanne Could Lose The Combustion Engine .
Crewe's flagship rumored to go fully electric early into the next decade. Eclipsed by the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the current-generation Bentley Mulsanne has been around since 2010, but that doesn’t mean it’s about to be renewed. In fact, a new report originating from the U.K. indicates the flagship model from Crewe will not be introduced this decade, with the rumor mill pointing towards a launch in the early 2020s. When it will eventually arrive, the luxobarge could eschew its biturbo 6.75-liter V8 gasoline engine altogether to make room for an all-electric setup.
