Bentley Continental Flying Spur: Now comes with Speed, too

Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed
Bentley has released the new Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed.

The new Flying Spur Speed gets the same revised version of Bentley’s 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine that we’ve already seen in offered in the GT Speed Coupe. That means 600bhp (a 48bhp increase on the standard car) and 553lb-ft of torque (up from 479 lb-ft). Bentley claims the Flying Spur will be able to hit 60mph in 4.5 seconds from rest, and 100mph just 10.5 seconds after leaving the line: despite a 2475kg kerbweight.

Subtle styling tweaks distinguish the Speed from the standard Flying Spur. The more powerful car gets its front grille and lower air intakes finished in dark-tinted chrome, plus a new design of exhaust tailpipes. New 20-inch alloys, available in either bright silver or darkened tungsten finishes, carry the same bespoke Pirelli P-Zero tyres that were introduced on the GT Speed. Power steering has retuned, spring and dampers firmed up and the Speed has also been lowered by 10mm.
