Bentley just revealed a mew range-topper for the Flying Spur called the W12 S and it also happens to be the fastest four-door model ever to leave their Crewe factory. The 6.0-litre twin turbo W12 powerplant is capable of pumping out 626 hp and 800 Nm of torque. This allows this large machine to hit 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and go all the way to a whopping 325 km/h. Power is sent to all four wheels with a 40:60 front:rear split and you get updated suspension to cope with these properly rapid numbers.
The exterior of the fastest Flying Spur features a number of dark styling cues, including a Beluga gloss radiator grille and light surrounds, a rear diffuser and optional carbon fibre trim pieces. Front and rear lamps now get a dark tint. A set of specific 21-inch 7-spoke gloss black wheels are standard, with an also 21-inch 5-spoke design available as an option.
“The Flying Spur W12 S is the ultimate luxury performance sedan”, says Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors. “It combines sharper dynamics and an increase in power from our renowned W12 engine with a more assertive exterior and interior design for customers looking for a Flying Spur with extra attitude.”
The cabin gains a unique black engine-spin finish to the fascia and waistrails, W12 S treadplates for the front and rear and a three-spoke steering wheel and knurled gearshift paddles.
