NEW FOR 2018: BENTLEY FLYING SPUR W12 S
The Flying Spur W12 S is the pinnacle flagship to the Flying Spur range, blending ultimate luxury, style and power. The new model is the fastest-ever Bentley sedan produced by the team in England, it’s the first four-door, Bentley, to have a top speed in excess of 200 mph, and offers a more sporting experience for owners looking for increased power, torque and responsive.
The new Flying Spur W12 S brings more attitude to the Flying Spur range. The mighty engine has been tuned for extra power, and a new responsive suspension set-up improves handling and provides even more traction, to deliver an effortless driving experience. With its brooding looks and sporting details in evidence both inside and out, there is no question that the Flying Spur W12 S is a flagship model with a darker side.
The Flying Spur W12 S features a number of dark styling cues which hint at its extreme dynamic capabilities. A suite of black detailing, including gloss-black radiator grille and light surrounds, W12 S snagging on the C-pillar, plus a rear diffuser and optional carbon fibre veneer give the model a dramatic, dominating and purposeful appearance to match its performance.
The closer you look at the Flying Spur, the more you’ll see. Take the sweeping elegance of the dashboard design. Spreading out from the centre, the two main sections extend elegantly like wings – the wings of the Bentley marque; to further remind you which Flying Spur you are entering there is W12 S stitching on the headrests as well as W12 S kickplates.
The Flying Spur features an interior cabin that has been entirely crafted by hand. Each cabin is bespoke or customised, and no other Bentley will be like yours. Finished with only the finest natural materials, it has been designed from the outset to surround its occupants in exquisite luxury. Polished stainless steel and your chosen leather combine with what Bentley craftsmen and women refer to as the ‘ring of wood’. The beautiful veneers, carefully selected and meticulously mirror-matched, create a seamless flow of high-gloss grain that surrounds both driver and front passenger, evoking a unique sense of calm. This inspired structure allows the fluid lines of the fascia to embrace the geometry and precision detailing of bezels, beautiful stitching and trim with perfect balance and symmetry.
Like every detail in every Bentley, the cabin design of the Flying Spur also demands ever closer attention. The more you look, the more you admire, indeed love, being careful not to get lost in total infatuation with the sheer sumptuousness of every unique and authentic Bentley interior.
