Bentley has prepared something special for this year Paris Motor Show. The British manufacturer introduced a new flagship to the Flying Spur range: the Flying Spur W12 S. That simple S means the new model is the first four-door Bentley to have a top speed in excess of 200 mph.

The Flying Spur W12 S features a number of dark styling cues and detailing, including Beluga gloss radiator grille and light surrounds, a rear diffuser and optional carbon fibre veneer.

The Flying Spur W12 S features enhanced power and torque outputs from the 6.0-litre, twin-turbo W12 engine. Through precise calibration and tuning, engine power is increased from 625 hp to 635 hp and torque from 800 Nm to 820 Nm for a more dynamic drive. Full torque is available from just 2,000 rpm. Power is delivered to the road via an all-wheel-drive system with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split for a sure-footed, engaging drive in all road and weather conditions.

This increase in power means that the Flying Spur W12 S achieves a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph), the first four-door Bentley to exceed the 200 mph performance barrier. The initial sprint to 100 km/h is dispatched in 4.5 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds).

The new flagship Flying Spur has specific damper and stability control calibrations for a more involving, agile drive.


New standard interior features include a unique black engine-spin finish to the fascia and waistrails (a satin carbon-fibre finish is an option), a W12 S headrest emblem in contrast or blind stitching, W12 S treadplates for the front and rear, a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel and knurled gearshift paddles, which are only available as options on other models.
