Although the 2022 Bentley Flying Spur costs more than the 2022 Audi V8, the Bentley delivers an unrivaled touring experience and gives you options that no driver can afford to overlook. The 2022 Flying Spur is also much more customizable than its rival, and it practically goes without saying that the Bentley delivers more luxury features and amenities. Our in-depth Audi S8 vs. Bentley Flying Spur matchup breaks down everything you’ll need to know before you drive in from Los Angeles or Glendale.

Performance: Audi S8 vs. Bentley Flying Spur

The 2022 Audi S8 only gives you one powertrain option, an admittedly impressive 4.0L V8 engine with 563 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. With that said, the Bentley comes standard with its own V8 engine, which delivers 542 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque—and that means it’s never far behind.

What’s more, the new Bentley Flying Spur allows buyers to select from two additional powertrain upgrades, and both are worthy of consideration:

  • The Audi S8 has a partially electrified hybrid powertrain, but only the Bentley Flying Spur is available as a plug-in hybrid vehicle that can go 25 miles on electric power alone! Where power is concerned, the Flying Spur PHEV is comparable to the base V8 model.
  • Looking to pull out all the stops? Upgrade with the Bentley Flying Spur W12! This model delivers 626 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque—and the Audi S8 doesn’t offer anything that can compete.

It’s also important to note that the Flying Spur isn’t just available with more power. It’s also the better all-around performer. Keep these points in mind:

  • The Flying Spur needs just 36.3 feet to turn in a complete circle, and that means it is significantly more maneuverable than the S8. The latter needs 42.3 feet to execute the same maneuver.
  • The Flying Spur comes equipped with wider front and rear brakes for better stopping power—and it’s also lighter than the S8, as standard. The Flying Spur brake pads come in at 16.5 and 15 inches, compared to 15.8 and 13.8 inches for the S8.

Versatility and Customization: Audi S8 vs. Bentley Flying Spur

The Bentley Flying Spur and the Audi S8 are both beckon their drivers to unforgettable adventures—and when you’re traversing through Los Angeles and Glendale, there’s a very good chance that you’ll want to bring some cargo along for the ride! Although both models can seat four passengers comfortably, the Bentley Flying Spur wins out with 14.8 cubic feet of trunk space, compared to just 12.5 cubic feet in the S8.

What’s more, the Bentley offers exclusivity and unique flair that no Audi S8 can match—and nothing makes this difference more apparent than the range of colors available for each model. With more than 80 exterior colors and more than a dozen interior colors to consider, your Bentley Flying Spur will look completely unique on the roads of Burbank and Pasadena. With just eight exterior colors and three interior colors, the Audi S8 leaves a lot to be desired.
