Bentley Flying Spur speed: race to the end of the W12


The Flying Spur range is complete. Besides the – now – basic version, Azure and S, Mulliner and Speed​​​​are the advanced versions. The reason? They still have the legendary W12 under the hood. The Mulliner – which can also be ordered with a V8 and with a V6 plug-in hybrid – emphasizes customization and exceptional finishing, while the Velocity focuses on speed.

Strong movements

Under the bonnet, the Flying Spur Speed ​​​​only uses a 6.0-liter W12, producing 635hp and 900Nm, which pushes the British saloon from 100km / h in 3.8 seconds and to a top speed of no less than 333 km / h. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed gearbox as in the Continental GT. If necessary, part of the power can also be sent to the front wheels.

To improve driving dynamics slightly, Bentley installs four-wheel steering. The Bentley Dynamic Ride system with active anti-roll bars controls the bodywork dynamics of this British colossus. The visual difference is further enhanced by the grille, headlights and taillights finished in a single black tone. The Flying Spur Speed​​​​ has 22-inch rims and receives the requisite Speed ​​logos on the front fenders. Finally, the Style Specification adds optional carbon fiber accents, while the Black Line Specification replaces the glossy body parts with black detailing.
