The current Bentley Flying Spur was launched in 2005 and refreshed in 2013 and will be on its way out soon, but not before the final design representing the current ethos hits the markets. Bentley has been toying with the EV idea and larger models will eventually migrate to this path.
While the future is being worked out Bentley has kept the interest level in the model intact with periodical innovations like the introduction of the V8S model for some markets.
The base of the Flying Spur is the MSB-F platform, which is already finds place in the new Porsche Panamera.
The advantage is that this has help in the redesign which spawns a new styling language that follows very much in the themes of the new Continental GT but with distinct surfaces and sharper crease lines made possible due to new aluminum shaping techniques.
For the car, Bentley has also upgraded the power train ratings from the 6.0-litre, twin-turbo W12 engine. Now it offers 626 bhp. The modest increase in power helps the W12 S model achieve a top speed of 325 km/h which incidentally makes it the first four-door Bentley to cross the 320km/h performance barrier. Although, the car is heavier than the Continental series, it can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in respectable time of 4.5 seconds. Full torque is available from just 2,000 rpm. The flagship sedan has specific damper and stability control calibrations for a more involving, agile drive.
