Flying Spur

 
The Bentley Flying Spur is an exceptional luxury sedan. And not simply because of the incredible speeds it can reach. Designed for those who demand unrestrained luxury alongside uncompromising performance, it delivers the ultimate motoring experience, for driver and passengers alike.

The Flying Spur is a car to drive and be driven in. Yes, it offers limousine comfort in the back but some say the best seat is behind the hand-stitched steering wheel feeling the raw power of the W12 engine. An engine now incorporating a Variable Displacement System, which increases fuel efficiency and helps reduce emissions.
 
Exterior Design
The Bentley marque's characteristic curves meet crisp, clean new edges in a remarkably sleek silhouette. The side feature line runs along the car from the rear wheel arch in parallel with the low roof, down to its hand-fitted chrome front grille. The bi-Xenon headlights with daylight-running LEDs complete a powerful visage when viewed from head on. A strong rear haunch and wrap-around tail lamps add an elegant, contemporary feel. There is no doubt that the Flying Spur is unmistakably Bentley and stands alone as a luxury sedan.
  
Interior Design
Despite the Flying Spur's powerful nature, this is a spacious four-door sedan where back-seat passengers can enjoy the ride and take control of their environment. From the organ-stop air vent controls to the touch screen Infotainment system and Touch Screen Remote, they can experience a Bentley drive nearly as exhilarating as the driver's.
Materials
The veneers used for the mirror-matched waistrails and dashboard, the matching glasses case in the console and the picnic tables behind the front seats are all carefully fitted by hand. Cured for 72 hours, they are treated with five layers of clear lacquer to enhance their natural beauty. The result is a series of stunning, mirror-matched surfaces that flow seamlessly into the soft, tactile leather of the Flying Spur's interior.
Every hand-upholstered leather seat is individually sewn, hand-fitted and signed by the upholsterer on the back of the hide, which undergoes a traditional tanning process beforehand, to give it a rich, luxurious leather aroma.
 

Mulliner Driving Specification
In the early days of the motor car, Mulliner became the coachbuilder of choice for Britain's discerning motorists - many of whom drove Bentleys. Mulliner craftsmanship soon became legendary and in 1959, the company finally became part of Bentley.

Today, the Flying Spur W12 with Mulliner Driving Specification continues this proud tradition of handcrafted excellence. In addition to the luxurious specification of the Flying Spur W12, it sports subtle design details such as 21" seven twin-spoke two-piece alloy wheels, designed alongside the car at the Bentley factory in Crewe.  

Inside, the theme continues with diamond-quilted seats and door panels with perforated hides, drilled alloy sports pedals and a knurled sports gear lever. Throughout the car, Mulliner's sporting heritage is combined exquisitely with the handcrafted luxury of the Flying Spur. 
Engine
The 6 litre W12 engine is capable of 616 bhp and produces a maximum torque of 800 Nm. It can propel the Flying Spur's speed from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds - and on to a top speed of 199 mph.

With its exquisite interior and the power it places at your fingertips, nothing brings luxury and performance together like the Flying Spur W12.
 

Transmission
All-wheel drive with 40:60 front-to-rear torque split guarantees sure-footed performance, while the 8-speed transmission ensures the car is always in the optimum gear, so it is responsive at low speeds and incredibly smooth, even through multiple gear changes. The new engine management system, meanwhile, combines with new chassis hardware and software to give you total control, while also delivering better range.

Efficiency
The Flying Spur is a milestone in the development of the luxury car. It is also a milestone in the development of the performance car. Yet the story doesn't stop there. The radical new body shape remains recognisably, iconically Bentley. The technology behind the driving experience is unrivalled among vehicles of its kind. And when it comes to transporting passengers in comfort, there is nothing quite like it. 
 
Infotainment System
The Flying Spur features the very latest in-car technology, with a touchscreen front Infotainment system which allows both driver and front passenger to operate the navigation system and adjust the audio, telephone, and ride comfort settings.

Bluetooth and WiFi
With the optional Multimedia Specification, the rear seats include DVD players, wireless headphones and LCD screens, along with ports enabling you to connect consoles, tablets, cameras, music players and mobile phones. This option also provides the Flying Spur with its very own new WiFi hotspot, providing internet access for tablets, laptops and phones - and the internal 64 GB hard drive has enough room to share practically anything that can be stored on a modern day digital device. 
iPod/MP3 Connectivity
In the console in the back, lies a detachable, Touch Screen Remote. Relaxing in the hand-upholstered rear seats, passengers can adjust the climate settings, seat heating and ventilation, radio and navigation system and multimedia features. 
 
Sound System
The optional 1100 watt 13 channel Naim™ for Bentley Premium Audio System delivers incredible sound, wherever you sit in the car. Each of the Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) speakers combine the functions of a separate tweeter and midrange speaker in one unit. Sited in the fascia, rear quarter panels and rear parcel shelf , they make it possible to direct the sound with accuracy, while providing incredible clarity throughout the audible spectrum.

Flying Spur V8
The Bentley Flying Spur V8, a recent addition to our family, is the embodiment of everything Bentley stands for. Pure unadulterated luxury combined with outstanding performance. The W12's lighter, leaner sibling combines an upright grille, large jewel LED headlamps, sharp fender wing vents and the Flying Spur's familiar contemporary lines to present a muscular yet elegant exterior design, now further refined with a choice of striking new alloy wheels.
