Bentley decided it was time to come up with a new flagship sedan for their range and they did it by spicing up the already flavorful Flying Spur. The hot new model is called the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S and it is first four-door Bentley to have a 200+ mph top speed.
Despite being a remarkable achievement in every aspect, Bentley Flying Spur W12 S must have been an easy task for the engineers as all they had to do to create it was up the power on the W12 engine, tighten up suspension and drivetrain a little, and add some dark trim to the outside to make the thing look distinguished. The played the same trick with the Flying Spur V8 S and that was pretty successful.
As for the facts and figures, the W12 S comes packing 635 PS (626 bhp) and peak torque of 820 Nm (605 lb. ft.), translating to a 0 to 100 km/h time of 4.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds) and a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph). This high-speed road-going oceanliner is kept in check by an all-wheel-drive system with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split, new responsive suspension, and optional carbon ceramic brakes.
In terms of looks the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S is set apart from regular models by virtue of its S badges, blacked-out window surrounds, lights, rear bumper, door handle inserts and headlight washer caps, gloss-black front radiator matrix and 21 inch wheels. Black trim pieces also adorn the interior with optional satin carbon, three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel and knurled gearshift paddles, special treadplates and unique colors and stitching.
