Bentley's New Flying Spur Speed Has 626 HP and 207 MPH

Bentley debuted the Flying Spur Speed, a faster and more powerful premium car. The new Flying Spur Speed will exceed 207 mph with its 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12 engine.

With the Flying Spur W12's departure, the Speed variant will be one of 2 ways to get the W12. Flying Spur Mulliner. The Flying Spur Speed's engine has 626 horsepower (467 kW/635 PS) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm), 84 hp (62 kW/85 PS) and 96 lb-ft (130 Nm) more than the Mulliner model.

It can reach 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, 0.4 seconds faster than the conventional W12 model, which was discontinued in May.

ZF's 8-speed dual-clutch transmission powers all four wheels. Bentley enthusiasts will remember the Continental GT's transmission, which pre-selects gears to reduce torque interruptions.

The Flying Spur Speed's all-wheel-drive technology prioritizes rear-wheel drive. Balanced torque distribution speeds up turn-in and reduces understeer. Torque vectoring and all-wheel steering guarantee cornering agility.

The quickest Flying Spur has 22-inch "Speed" wheels and 420-mm front brake rotors. Red calipers with Bentley logo are standard; black calipers cost extra.

Front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler are all hand-crafted from carbon fiber. The Flying Spur Speed's external trim can be darkened with the Blackline Specification.

Flying Spur Speed uses Dinamica Plus, a 73% recycled polyester microfiber cloth. Bentleys employ a lot of leather, with 15 hues and piano black trim as standard. Crown Cut Walnut, Dark Stained Burr Walnut, and Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus are free for trim. A new infotainment mode is inspired by motorsport chronographs.

Bentley intends to sell most Flying Spur Speeds in the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East. Pricing and availability are forthcoming.
