The Bentley Flying Spur is a remarkable luxury sedan. And not simply because of the incredible speeds it can reach. Designed for those who demand unrestrained luxury alongside uncompromising performance, it delivers the ultimate motoring experience, for driver and passengers alike.
Offering serene limousine comfort, in combination with phenomenal power, the Flying Spur is born of the belief that nothing is impossible; that the twin objectives of performance and luxury can, if relentlessly pursued, be achieved. But the Flying Spur ambitions dont stop there. The refined W12 engine now incorporates a Variable Displacement System which increases fuel efficiency and helps reduce emissions.
Bentleys craftsmen is evident throughout the Flying Spur W12
From the sharp lines of its super-formed aluminium exterior to the hand-crafted hides and veneers that adorn the interior, the expertise of Bentleys craftsmen is evident throughout the Flying Spur W12. Every seam in the A-Grade leather is individually sewn. Every layer of veneer is lacquered and polished by hand. The entire cabin, from the wood and the leather to the architecture that supports the cars digital technology has been fitted by hand.
While the 6 litre W12 engine can propel the Flying Spur W12 from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 200 mph, the environment inside remains one of absolute calm not least because of the specially-designed soundproofing installed in the floor and the doors.
The 6 litre W12 engine is capable of 616 bhp and produces a maximum torque of 800 Nm. It can propel the Flying Spur's speed from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 200 mph.
With its exquisite interior and the power it places at your fingertips, nothing brings luxury and performance together like the Flying Spur W12.
All-wheel drive with 40:60 front-to-rear torque split guarantees sure-footed performance, while the 8-speed transmission ensures the car is always in the optimum gear, so it is responsive at low speeds and incredibly smooth, even through multiple gear changes. The new engine management system, meanwhile, combines with new chassis hardware and software to give you total control, while also delivering better range.
The Flying Spur is a milestone in the development of the luxury car. It is also a milestone in the development of the performance car. Yet the story doesnt stop there. The radical new body shape remains recognisably, iconically Bentley. The technology behind the driving experience is unrivalled among vehicles of its kind. And when it comes to transporting passengers in comfort, there is nothing quite like it.
The side feature line runs along the car from the rear wheel arch in parallel with the low roof, down to its hand-fitted chrome front grille. The bi-Xenon headlights with daylight-running LEDs complete a powerful visage when viewed from head on.
There is no doubt that the Flying Spur is an elegant luxury sedan. Yet the strong rear haunch and the wrap-around tail lamps conspire to betray the Bentley heritage and the power the car conceals within.
In the early days of the motor car, Mulliner became the coachbuilder of choice for Britains discerning motorists many of whom drove Bentleys. Mulliner craftsmanship soon became legendary and in 1959, the company finally became part of Bentley.
Today, the Flying Spur W12 Mulliner continues this proud tradition of handcrafted excellence. In addition to the luxurious specification of the Flying Spur W12, it sports subtle design details such as 21 five-spoke two-piece alloy wheels, designed alongside the car at the Bentley factory in Crewe. The Mulliner name adorns the treadplates and the chrome details on the wing vent.
Inside, the theme continues with diamond-quilted seats and door panels with perforated hides, drilled alloy sports pedals and a knurled sports gear lever. Throughout the car, Mulliners sporting heritage is combined exquisitely with the handcrafted luxury of the Flying Spur.
