Flying Spur W12 S: Bentley’s only four-door saloon to crack 321kmph!

Flying Spur W12 S: Bentley’s only four-door saloon to crack 321kmph!

Meet the Bentley Flying Spur W12 S, the first four-door Bentley to break the 321kmph barrier. You’d agree that this is a feat considering the vehicle in question here is a huge and lavishly appointed saloon.

Now, how was that possible? Along with the letter ‘S’ in the badging, comes an extra 10bhp and 20Nm of torque that gets the bi-turbo 6.0-litre W12 motor to now deliver 626bhp and 820Nm of torque. This is what acted as a catalyst to aid the new car to now nudge 325kmph, and also despatch the 0-100kmph run in a quicker 4.5sec (4.6sec for the non ‘S’ version). 

Power is transferred to both axles, and the rear end gets 60 per cent of the motor’s power. Engineers have fine-tuned the suspension to complement the extra power and this, as Bentley claims, translates into improved handling and more grip. With the extra power on tap, Bentley now offers the W12 S with an optional carbon ceramic brake kit that comes in either black or red callipers.

Bentley has also made a few exterior updates by now using glossy black on a few bits like the front grille and the 21-inch wheels. Both the head lamps and tail lamps now get a sporty black tint treatment, and the new ‘W12 S’ badge is proudly displayed on the D-pillar. Move into the cabin, and one will notice the new three-spoke steering wheel with the new gearshift paddles, the different stitching with the ‘W12 S’ emblem on the headrest, and the new two-tone theme with contrast stitching and diamond quilting.

Bentley India is yet to reveal any details about introducing the Flying Spur W12 S here, but deliveries worldwide will begin before the end of 2016.
