Ever since the first Model T rolled out of the Ford factory back in 1908, black has continued to be a preferred color of choice for the automobile. It isn’t flashy but exudes elegance and a sort of understated professionalism other colors struggle to give off. And from the looks of the Bentley Flying Spur Black Edition, it’s safe to say this notion remains intact.
It’s all part of Bentley’s famed Flying Spur series – complete with several trims and color options suited for just about any preference. However, the black gloss brightware, dark tinted lights, gloss black windows, door mirrors, and new all black wheels offer a more mysterious yet refined aesthetic to the ride. The subtle statement made here complements the Bentley’s formidable 4.0 liter V8 S engine as well, which pushes out 521 horses and 501 lb. ft of torque to the vehicle’s AWD drivetrain resulting in a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph. It’s all rounded off nicely with a sporty luxury interior featuring black leather contrasted with stripes of stitched leather hide for good measure.
