Get all the details about the differences in performance, technology, and customization in the Audi S8 vs. Bentley Flying Spur comparison from Bentley Pasadena.



Audi S8 vs. Bentley Flying Spur: Performance

Performance is one of the most important considerations when choosing a new luxury model. Drivers want to ensure that, whichever model they choose, they’ll have the power they need for their Glendale drives. While the 2024 Audi S8 does provide significant capability and handling with its standard 4.0L V8 engine, it only offers a single powertrain with no room for upgrades. On the other hand, the 2023 Bentley Flying Spur brings three powertrains to the table, including a plug-in hybrid option for drivers interested in moving into the electric future. In addition, the Bentley Flying Spur offers a massive 6.0L W12 engine, which outputs so much power that the Audi S8 just can’t compete. Compare the Bentley Flying Spur vs. Audi S8 powertrain options in detail below:

2023 Bentley Flying Spur Powertrain Options

  • 2.9L V6 Plug-In Hybrid: Capable of up to 536 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. Reaches a top speed of 177 mph and goes from 0-60 mph in as little as 4.1 seconds.
  • 4.0L V8 Engine: Capable of up to 542 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. Reaches a top speed of 198 mph and goes from 0-60 mph in as little as 4 seconds.
  • 6.0L W12 Engine: Capable of up to 626 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. Reaches a top speed of 207 mph and goes from 0-60 mph in as little as 3.7 seconds. 

2024 Audi S8 Powertrain Options

  • 4.0L V8 Engine: Capable of up to 563 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Reaches a top speed of 155 mph and goes from 0-60 mph in as little as 3.8 seconds. 

Audi S8 vs. Bentley Flying Spur: Luxury & Personalization

Premium performance is only one part of the equation– luxury and customization are the others. See how the Bentley Flying Spur range compares to the Audi S8 in terms of:

  • Exterior Colors: The Audi S8 allows drivers to choose from eight exterior colors, all designed to exude refinement. That said, it can’t match the wealth of exterior color options that the Flying Spur delivers, with more than 100 premium colors to help you stand out on the Pasadena roads.
  • Technology: When it comes to seamless connectivity and driver assistance, it’s hard to beat a Bentley. Though the Audi S8 offers a 10.1-inch touchscreen and some basic driver assistance aids such as Audi pre sense®, it’s hard to compete with the Flying Spur’s 12.3-inch touchscreen and advanced driver aids like Night Vision.
  • Interior Luxury: Bentley is synonymous with luxury for a reason. Only in the Flying Spur interior will drivers find available luxury amenities such as electronically deployed picnic tables, three sound system options from makers like Bang & Olufsen and Naim, and customizable mood lighting.
