The world;s fastest four-door Bentley was recently unveiled, boasting a top speed in excess of 200 mph! The 2017 Bentley Flying Spur W12S has been announced as the new flagship of the Flying Spur range. To differentiate the Flying Spur W12S, a number of unique styling cues are also on offer.
At the heart of the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S is the 6.0 litre, twin-turbo W12 engine. A small upgrade from 625 PS to 635 PS is achieved through engine management tuning with a similar increase in torque from 800 Nm to 820 Nm. Full torque now kicks in from 2,000 rpm giving the Flying Spur W12 S a stunning turn of pace. The official top speed is 325 km/h (202 mph) and 100 km/h is dispatched in 4.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds).
The power is transferred to the wheels through an all-wheel drive system with a 40:60 rear bias. Specific damper and stability control calibrations have been developed and optional ceramic brake discs are also available. The ride is finished off with a choice of either 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.
The Flying Spur W12 S gets blackware detailing – including Beluga gloss radiator grille and light surrounds, a rear diffuser and optional carbon fibre veneer. The window surrounds, lights, rear bumper, door handle inserts and headlight washer caps are also finished in black. A new W12 S badge is available for the D-pillar featuring 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 headlights also receive a dark tint.
Inside, 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 is also unique to the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S.
Customer deliveries of the new Flying Spur W12 S will commence at the end of the year.
