Bentley Motors has introduced a
new flagship to the Flying Spur range, the Flying Spur W12 S. The new model is
the first four-door Bentley to have a top speed in excess of 200 mph (322km
approx.), and offers a more sporting experience for owners looking for
increased power, torque and responsiveness.
The Flying Spur W12 S features
a number of dark styling cues. A suite of blackware detailing – including
Beluga gloss radiator grille and light surrounds – a rear diffuser and optional
carbon fibre veneer gives the new model a dramatic and purposeful appearance to
match its enhanced performance.
The Flying Spur W12 S features
enhanced power and torque outputs from the 6.0-litre, twin-turbo W12 engine.
Through precise calibration and tuning, engine power is increased from 625 PS
to 635 PS (626 bhp) and torque from 800 Nm to 820 Nm (605 lb. ft.) for a more
dynamic drive. Full torque is available from just 2,000 rpm, making for a
totally effortless driving experience.
This increase in power means
that the Flying Spur W12 S achieves a top speed of 325 km/h– the first
four-door Bentley to exceed the 200 mph performance barrier. The initial sprint
to 100 km/h is dispatched in 4.5 seconds.
In modern Bentley tradition,
power is delivered to the road via an all-wheel-drive system with a 40:60
rear-biased torque split for a sure-footed, engaging drive in all road and
Complementing these power
upgrades, a new responsive suspension tune for the Flying Spur W12 S improves
handling and provides even more traction, while optional carbon ceramic brakes
are available with red or black painted calipers.
The new flagship Flying Spur
has specific damper and stability control calibrations for a more involving,
agile drive. Yet, due to its clever suspension set-up, which retains the
refined ride for which the Flying Spur W12 is renowned, the S derivative
remains a luxury sedan for those who wish to be chauffeured, as well as those
who choose to drive.
Bentley’s design team has
created an athletic character that combines traditional Bentley styling cues
with a sporting stance. Sharp feature lines complement muscular rear haunches,
while LED daytime running lights, subtle blackware elements and a choice of
stylish alloy wheels afford the Flying Spur a modern, contemporary feel.
From new gloss-black detailing
on the bodywork, to the unique leather stitching, the new exterior and interior
styling reflects the more assertive, darker character of the Flying Spur W12 S.
There is full exterior gloss
blackware for the radiator and window surrounds, lights, rear bumper, door
handle inserts and headlight washer caps. A new W12 S badge on the D-pillar
features a black ‘S’, while the sporting front-bumper design, Beluga gloss rear
diffuser and door mirrors, and gloss-black front radiator matrix are adopted
from the new Flying Spur V8 S.
The front and rear lamps
receive a dark tint while a new, lower bumper insert suggests a more assertive
The wheels offered on the
Flying Spur W12 S are 21” 7-spoke with a new gloss-black finish, or a new
optional 21” Sports 5-spoke directional wheel finished in either gloss black or
a dark tint.
Inside, the Flying Spur W12 S
boasts styling cues designed to enhance its sporting luxury aesthetic, with the
exquisite handcrafted interior offering a wider palette of colours, a new
fascia finish and unique stitching.
New standard interior features
include a unique black engine-spin finish to the fascia and waistrails (a satin
carbon-fibre finish is an option); a W12 S headrest emblem in contrast or blind
stitching; W12 S treadplates for the front and rear; a three-spoke Sport Plus
steering wheel and knurled gearshift paddles, which are only available as
options on other models.
A new colour split unique to
the Flying Spur W12 S model is created using a single-tone interior with
accents in one of 17 hide colours, and unique contrast stitching to the diamond
quilting, the Sport Plus steering wheel and the interior.
