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.
