Ahead of its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show, Bentley Motors introduces a new model to its range -- the Flying Spur V8 S.

The model is a mix of the luxury carmaker's Flying Spur V8 and family flagship W12, but tuned for power and performance, with increased engine output and revised suspension.

The Flying Spur V8 S features a number of sporting styling cues. A black radiator grille and rear diffuser, along with a unique grille insert, give the new model a dramatic appearance to match its enhanced performance.

Under the hood is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 S engine that delivers 521 bhp, compared to its V8 sibling's 500 bhp. The power allows the car to sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds.

Bentley gives its latest vehicle a dark and sporting exterior highlights. The iconic matrix grille is black as standard and together with a Beluga gloss rear diffuser give the Flying Spur V8 S a dramatic on-road presence. We also see V8 S badging on the rear haunch, V8 S treadplates and 20-inch open-spoke painted wheels.

Inside the cabin, features include piano-black wood veneers and a three-spoke sports steering wheel, both standard, along with a knurled gear lever and gear shift paddles, stunning two-tone seats with a contrasting roof centre bow, and finally, V8 S headrest stitching.

The Bentley Flying Spur V8 S deliveries will begin in the summer.
