Bentley Flying Spur information
The Bentley Flying Spur is the brand’s “small” four-door limousine. It uses an enlarged version of the Continental GT coupe platform, so it comes with all-wheel drive and Bentley’s 6.0-liter W12 engine.
As expected, its performance is staggering: this saloon weighing more than two tons offers a 0-100 km/h time of less than four seconds and a top speed of 207 km/h.
The V8 model, thanks to its lighter engine and lower overall weight, falls a few tenths behind in the benchmark sprint, while there’s also a plug-in hybrid V6 model to help alleviate any unlikely concerns about running costs.
Like all Bentleys, the Flying Spur is beautifully finished inside with the finest wood and leather trim, so occupants can be carried in absolute comfort at high speeds. The disadvantages?
Well, prices start at over €224,000 and the running costs are very high.
