we’ve always known to Bentley as one of those brands that carries the maximum luxury possible to the car; something similar to what happens with Rolls-Royce.

The Bentley Flying Spur is a car of four-door deluxe with the version W12 of 625 horses and 800 Nm emanating from the powerful 6-liter biturbo. All this energy is channeled through all four wheels to get to the asphalt and, despite the fact that it weighs more than 2.5 tons, you get a maximum speed of 320 km/h 199 miles per hour. It seems that Bentley had a fish bone stuck and wanted to overcome the barrier of 200 mph, something that you get with the version W12 S of the Flying Spur which today presents to.
new Bentley Flying Spur W12 S improves the performance of the version without “S” increasing your power by 10 horsepower (635 ps) and torque to 20 Nm (820 Nm). This allows you to break the barrier of 200 mph, reaching 202 mph, or what is the same, 325 km/h of maximum speed. The 0 to 100 is done in 4.5 seconds, not bad for a big saloon that seeks first of all the comfort, and weighs over 2,500 pounds. One of the most amazing things is that the huge torque of 820 Nm is developed from the 2,000 revolutions per minute.
