Flying Spur W12 S
The first four-door Bentley to achieve a top speed in excess of 200 mph, the Flying Spur W12 S sets new standards in the world of luxury cars. The engine has been tuned for added power and torque, alongside the introduction of suspension settings that deliver truly dynamic handling, without compromise to the car’s refined ride. With sporting details in evidence inside and out, there is no question that the Flying Spur W12 S is a car for the serious driver. Indeed, for many, it provides all the driving satisfaction of a grand tourer, alongside the range, space for luggage and rear comfort of the world’s finest luxury sedan. This is a flagship model with a darker side.
Road presence: a term that takes on new meaning with the introduction of the new Flying Spur W12 S. Never before has a luxury sedan driven so confidently into territory normally occupied by supercars. And with its striking sporting appearance, the Flying Spur W12 S is impossible to miss. Gloss black metal details adorn its sleek exterior, along with W12 S badging on the rear pillar and the stainless steel W12 S branded treadplates. Dark tint lamps to the front and rear are teamed with a black matrix grille, rear diffuser and 21” 7 gloss black twin-spoke wheels, which can be paired with a choice of either red or black painted brake callipers. The sports front bumper design helps to give the impression of sitting lower to the road, while a gloss black diffuser completes the brooding picture.
With a power output of 635 PS and torque levels of 820 Nm, the 6.0-litre hand-built engine in the Flying Spur W12 S delivers effortless acceleration, taking the car and its occupants from 0-60 mph in a blistering 4.2 seconds. Yet with improved handling and overall responsiveness in every driving situation, there is much more to the Flying Spur W12 S than speed alone. The W12 S also offers a useful 672km range between refueling stops, enabling the driver to appreciate uninterrupted driving pleasure.
A unique seat colour split has been developed to lend the Flying Spur W12 S interior a distinct sporting feel. Contrast stitching catches the eye on both the steering wheel and seat inserts, with unique headrest stitching completing a sleek, stylish upholstery design. Flying Spur W12 S steel treadplates are also standard.
In the Flying Spur W12 S, veneered surfaces have been treated with an irresistible twist on a classic. Bentley has long offered turned aluminium, or ‘engine spin’ as a material in place of wooden veneers. Derived directly from the bespoke car interiors created for the Bentley Boys in the Roaring Twenties, it remains popular among those drivers keen to introduce elements reminiscent of classic early racing cars. But now, it comes with a darker side: black engine spin. Cars can be commissioned with this striking surface throughout – or in combination with carbon fibre, for an even more technical look.
