Bentley Flying Spur Speed ​​Debuts With 626-HP W12, Top Speed ​​207 MPH

The third-generation Bentley Flying Spur debuted in mid-2019 for the 2020 model year. Since then, Bentley has introduced the Flying Spur Hybrid, Flying Spur S and other variants, but now the Flying Spur Speed ​​is joining its lineup. Speed ​​will be the only way to get Bentley’s W12 engine in the sedan as the company discontinued production of the standard Flying Spur W12 earlier this year.

The twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 engine produces 626 horsepower (467 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque. The Bentley sends power through an eight-speed ZF dual-clutch gearbox, which helps propel the car to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 3.7 seconds. It has a top speed of 207 mph (333 kph).

The car can transmit torque to both axles. The car’s Comfort Mode sends up to 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque to the front axle. Sport mode keeps things alive by limiting torque to the front wheels to just 206 lb-ft (280 Nm), sending the rest to the rear wheels. It will top the Flying Spur S in Bentley’s portfolio, with Bentley calling it the “most driving focused” Flying Spur model available.

Bentley enhances the Speed’s look with unique 22-inch alloy wheels available in glossy black, dark tones or silver. An optional set of 22-inch alloy wheels is also available, finished in glossy black or pale Brodgar satin. The company also added dark colors to the grille, headlights, badges and taillights. Red, Bentley branded brake calipers are standard, with a black unit available as a free upgrade.

The brand will continue to offer Styling Spec and Blackline Spec upgrades on the Flying Spur. Styling Spec adds some carbon fiber parts, such as a front splitter, side skirts with metallic Bentley badges, a rear diffuser, and a subtle trunk lid spoiler. The Blackline Spec replaces the car’s bright colors with darker trim pieces.

Inside, the number of skin tone options increased from five to 15. Piano black veneer is standard, with Crown Cut Walnut, Dark Stained Burr Walnut, or Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus as free alternatives. The sedan will also feature a unique instrument cluster graphic, 24-way adjustable front seats and 14-way adjustable rear seats, sport pedals, and more.

Bentley anticipates that Flying Spur Speed ​​will account for approximately one-third of all Flying Spur orders in the US and Europe. Bentley expects that number in the Middle East to be one in five.
