The new Bentley Flying Spur W12 S is capable of 202mph, making it the fastest four-door Bentley yet to make production.
The S uses the familiar W12 engine but power is up to 626bhp and torque 605lb ft, enabling a 4.5sec 0-62mph time despite the all-wheel-drive car’s hefty 2.5-ton kerb weight.
Along with the added performance, the W12 S gets unique interior and exterior styling features and revised suspension settings that are claimed to offer improved body control and handling without sacrificing comfort.
There are also optional carbon-ceramic brakes available with red or black painted calipers.
To mark out its model-topping performance, the W12 S wears a Beluga gloss radiator grille and light surrounds, a rear diffuser and optional carbonfibre veneer.
The car sits on 21in seven-spoke wheels with a new gloss-black finish, or optional 21in five-spoke directional wheels finished in either gloss black or a dark tint.
The cabin gains a unique black finish to the fascia and door trim; a satin carbonfibre finish is optional. There’re also W12 S headrest emblems, W12 S treadplates and a three-spoke Sport Plus steering wheel and knurled gearshift paddles, which are only available as options on other models.
Customisation options for the Flying Spur W12 S’s cabin include 17 diamond-quilted hide colours with contrast stitching and the Sport Plus steering wheel.
Pricing for the new model is yet to be revealed, but expect a significant increase on the £154,900 starting figure of the regular W12 model.
