Bentley has revealed a new flagship model, the Flying Spur W12 S.
With increased power, torque and responsiveness, the W12 S will sit at the top of the Flying Spur range, offering a more sporting-focused experience than any other has before.
In fact, it boasts the accolade of becoming the British carmaker’s first four-door model to have a top speed in excess of 200mph. With a 4.2 second 0-60 sprint, there’s no denying that the W12 S will be a game-changer among fast saloons.
This performance is down to the Flying Spur’s 6.0-litre, twin-turbo W12 engine, which, through precise calibration and tuning, boasts an increased power output of 626 bhp and 605 lb/ft. With full torque available from just 2,000 rpm, the W12 S promises a totally effortless driving experience.
Bentley’s traditional all-wheel-drive system delivers power to the road, with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split. A new responsive suspension tune alongside specific damper and stability control calibrations will improve handling and traction as well as providing a more involving, agile drive.
The car’s increased performance and improved dynamic capabilities are embodied in a number of dark styling cues, while a rear diffuser and optional carbon-fibre veneer will give this new model a dramatic appearance.
Chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors Wolfgang D?rheimer said: “The Flying Spur W12 S is the ultimate luxury performance sedan. It combines sharper dynamics and an increase in power from our renowned W12 engine with a more assertive exterior and interior design for customers looking for a Flying Spur with extra attitude.”
