Bentley has released the Flying Spur which is the fastest and most powerful four-door Bentley yet. Christened as the Flying Spur, this contemporary yet powerful sedan defines comfort and refinement. With a breathtaking speed of 200 mph (322 km/h), this model zooms from 0-60 mph time in a just 4.3 seconds. The uber luxury sedan offers unrivaled performance, it makes uses of the Continental GT Speed’s 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine delivering 625 PS (616 bhp) and 800 Nm of torque. A new eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox that shifts in under 200 milliseconds, adds to the speed. Bentley claims that the car is better than the outgoing model as there is 14% improvement in the power-to-weight ratio.
The Flying Spur’s exterior looks sharp with extensive use of aluminum and steel coachwork. The LED lights look brilliant in an upright grille with curves over the front fenders, down the lightly emphasized sides. The rear is also beautifully curvaceous, embedded with horizontal single ellipse LED tail lamps. The new redesigned door structures include smaller individual parts for improved quality and refinement. For efficient control, the car includes diamond-turned finish 19-inch classic wheels wrapped in 275/45/19 rubber.
Inside the Flying Spur, Bentley has focused on improving comfort and sound isolation with an open and elegant cabin.
