Bentley is known for fast making cars with no doubts. But it’s surprising that not any of its sedans ever went over the 200 mile-per-hour top speed. Even with ridiculous twin-turbo W12 engines from Volkswagen or the remarkable 6.75-liter V8s from Bentley’s classic years is the same case.
But revealing the latest 2017 Bentley Flying Spur changed all of that.
Flying Spur has more power
With top speed of 202 mile-per-hour, the Flying Spur W12 will be first Bentley’s sedan that can crack 200 mile-per-hour top speed.
Flying Spur achieves that with more power, it’s clear. With updating some of components, Bentley inreased the output from 616 hp and 590 ib-ft to 626 hp and 605 ib-ft.
All that oomph travels to the wheels through Bentley’s eight apeed automatic and an all-wheel drive system with 40:60.
More power is not the only thing that is added to it. Bentley also aport-tuned the suspension and steering for better handling and boosted responsiveness. The stability control is now different a little bit for less officiousness to allow more wheel slip.
Bentley promises that the W12 will be more energetic . We can’t be sure how energetic this huge luxury car will be.
There are some changes in the interior and on the exterior that are helping to make the difference between W12 S and non-S model. The W12 will get black bits for headlights and tailing and shadow trim. Grille will get a black paint too. Also, there are a lots of W12 S badges all over it.
Bentley says that it will be released by the end of this year. And prices will be announced just before it.
