Bentley Unveils New Sedan, Will Be Fastest Ever Released
If you’re the type of person that opted for the iPhone 6s Plus as opposed to the original iPhone 6, then you may also be the type of person that may lean towards Bentley’s 2017 Flying Spur W12 S rather than it’s 8 cylinder predecessor, or the base W12 model; granted you have the $230,000+ to fork over for the sweet ride.
Similar to the iPhone’s “S” option following the release of its more recent base model, the Flying Spur W12 S comes with it’s fair share of enhancements. Charging from a standstill 0 to 60mph in 4.2 seconds, and a top speed of 202mph, the W12 S model gives drivers a 2 mph bump in speed, crowning it Bentley’s fastest four-door to date.
Like the standard W12 Flying Spur model, the W12 S also runs off of a 6.0 liter-twin turbocharged W12 engine for power, boasting 626 horsepower, and 605 lb-ft of torque. Bentley has also reworked the W12 S model’s suspension improving its handling while maintaining the smooth ride Bentley owners have come to expect.
No sport package would be complete without the exterior upgrades to compliment those made under the hood. The W12 S’s exterior comes coated in a gloss-black paint, and “tinted front and rear lamps, as well as C-pillar-mounted W 12 S badging and trim-specific seven-spoke 21-inch wheels”.
Bentley maintains its credibility for luxurious interiors with added “knurled paddle shifters behind a three-spoke steering wheel, black engine-turned trim, and a two-tone leather interior”. “W12 S” stitching is featured in the headrests alongside the vehicle’s W12 S kickplates, in case you need reminding of just how well you are traveling.
The new Bentley front runner also offers options including carbon fiber interior trim, carbon-ceramic disc brakes, and five-spoke 21-inch wheels, as well as a number of bespoke options for fans of 1/1 customization.
Though Bentley has yet to unveil pricing for the spruced up W12 S model, customer deliveries are said to begin before the start of the year.
