Flying Spur W12S

Flagship Flying Spur powers past 200mph with style

There’s a new leader in the Flying Spur stable. A 626bhp 6.0-litre W12 engine and sportier, more responsive handling endow the Flying Spur W12S with true supercar performance, without eroding the refinement you’d expect of a Bentley luxury four-door.

Overview

Bentley Flying Spur

Bentley’s Flying Spur range now offers four variations on a theme of space, luxury and stupendous performance. Fans of Bentley’s muscular 4.0 V8 can choose between Flying Spur V8 and the more sporting V8S. Now the Flying Spur W12 and new W12S give buyers the same choice, but with twelve cylinders under the bonnet.

Bentley’s CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer describes the W12S as a Flying Spur with more attitude; extra power and torque are complemented by more responsive handling, while dark-tinted design details hint at the performance intent of the new Flying Spur flagship.

Where the standard W12 features chrome, the W12S sports gleaming black. These details include the radiator and window surrounds as well as lights, rear bumper, door handle inserts and headlight washer caps. Front and rear lamps are dark tinted, while the front bumper, rear diffuser, door mirrors and front radiator matrix are gloss black, like those of the Flying Spur V8S.

Two dark and dramatic wheel designs are offered; a gloss-black 21" 7 spoke design or a new 21" five-spoke directional wheel, which can be ordered in either dark tint or gloss black.

The interior continues the dark and moody theme. Fascia and waistrails are in black engine-spin finish, though satin carbon-fibre is offered as an alternative. Seats are diamond-quilted, with contrast stitching. There’s also a choice of 17 accent colours in a two-tone split that is unique to this model. The three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel comes with knurled paddleshifters, while W12S badging and headrest stitching add a finishing touch. A Wi-Fi hotspot and remote touchscreen allows the entrepreneur in a hurry to catch up on the latest market news in comfort, but come the weekend he or she will surely prefer to take the wheel.

Technology

Bentley Mulsanne

Developing an astonishing 626bhp, the new Flying Spur W12S is a genuine 200+mph four-door. It can sprint from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 202mph, assuming you have a deserted autobahn or track (and the nerve to keep your foot flat to the floor). Of equal significance is the torque. The maximum 605 lb.ft of torque is available from just 2,000rpm, offering the driver astonishing reserves of performance at any speed. As with every Flying Spur, power is delivered to all four wheels; torque is biased to the rear wheels with a 40:60 front-rear split.

Complementing the uprated engine performance is a more responsive chassis set up, with damper and stability control settings that are specific to the W12S. But while the driver will notice the more agile response and handling, rear seat passengers will continue to enjoy unruffled, smooth progress. Four-door luxury has never been so swift, or so exhilarating.
