Exterior of the Flying Spur V8 prototype is identical to the W12 powered model, but at the back we can see the flattened oval twin tail pipes, also found on the two-door Continental GT V8. Matte black wheels are also new to the Flying Spur V8, though they are likely just part of the prototype.
The production model will also get new badges along with minor changes to the front fascia.
Power on the Continental Flying Spur V8 is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
update! This here is just a test mule for the next-generation Flying Spur, that is expected to debut sometimes in 2013.
