Bentley Flying Spur W12 S - Coveting The Title Of Fastest Series Limousine
|   Monday, September 26, 2016
The Flying Spur W12 S sets the record for the maximum speed reached by a Bentley series limousine, entering in a league disputed until now by the BMW M760Li, Audi S8 plus, Mercedes-AMG S65, Porsche Panamera Turbo and Alpina B7.

The W12 twin-turbo engine with a displacement of 6 liters found on the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S model unleashes 635 hp and torque of 820 Nm available from 2,000 rpm. To efficiently convert this power into driving force, the luxurious British model is equipped with an all-wheel drive system that distributes torque in a ratio of 40 : 60 between the front and rear axles.

These colossal resources help sedan to sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.5 seconds. But it is not the start that is out of the ordinary, if we consider the fact that the BMW M760Li or Audi S8 plus need less than 4 seconds to achieve the same speeds, rather the only area in which the Bentley limousines could hope to overtake Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz was the top speed. And that is precisely what they did.
The truly impressive figure is the one that refers to the maximum speed. More specifically, the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S pushes the speedometer needle up to 325 km / h.

The Flying Spur W12 S has been designed to combine high performance with the reputation of a limousine driven by chauffeur.
Officials from Bentley explained the performance of the model through the fact that the new Flying Spur flagship has special calibration for both dampers and stability control system to offer a more exhilarating and agile driving experience.

However, due the performance setting of suspension, which keeps the comfort features for which the Flying Spur W12 is famous, the S version remains a luxury sedan, both for those who want to travel with a driver and for those who prefer to hold control themselves on the road.

Visually, the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S model is distinguished by elements that emphasize its sporty side. Examples are the dark metallic elements, such as the grille and headlight bezels with the Beluga gloss finish, the rear bumper diffuser as well as the optional carbon fiber trim. There are two 21-inch rims models, with 5 or 7 spokes and dark finishes. From the list of options you can choose ceramic brake discs.
