The W12 engine has been tweaked to make 85 PS and 130 Nm more than the Flying Spur S
Bentley has just unveiled the Flying Spur Speed, which is arguably the most driving-focused version of the Flying Spur to date.
Although it is powered by the same 6.5-litre W12 engine as before, the mill has been tweaked to produce 85 PS and 130 Nm more than the Flying Spur S.
Paired with the same 8-speed ZF dual-clutch transmission as the Continental GT, an active all-wheel drive system, electronic 4-wheel steering, as well as active all-wheel drive as standard, the Flying Spur Speed is capable of sprinting from naught to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and hitting a top speed of 333 km/h.
The Flying Spur also shares the largest iron brakes in the world with the Continental GT, with 420 mm front discs.
Design wise, the familiar exterior Speed styling cues are apparent with dark tint finishes to front grilles, headlamps and tail lamps, and signature Speed badges on the lower wing.
The unique 22-inch Speed wheel is standard, with finishes including Dark Tint, Gloss Black and silver-painted.
The Flying Spur Speed also includes jewelled fuel and oil filler caps. To increase the performance-focused presence even further, Bentley’s Styling Specification (carbon fibre front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and subtle bootlid spoiler) and Blackline Specification remain available as options.
Inside the cabin, there is a new unique colour way including the use of Dinimaca to all of the occupant touch points.
Interior colour choice increases from five to 15 leather colours with Piano Black veneer as standard.
In the driver’s information panel, new performance infotainment graphics can be seen, taking inspiration from luxury chronographs.
The luxury theme continues with front and rear seat comfort specification as standard, including 24-way adjustment for the front seats and 14-way adjustment for the rear seats.
All seats include heating, ventilation, massage and two memory positions. The cabin also includes sports pedals, Speed fascia badges and emblems and illuminated Speed inner and outer treadplates.
That being said, the Bentley Flying Spur Speed will be one of the last models to be powered by the iconic 6.75-litre W12 engine which is slated to be discontinued very soon.
