New Bentley Flying Spur W12 S is a 202mph luxury express

Bentley unveils its fastest ever four-door model, with a 626bhp W12 engine and 0-60mph time of 4.2 seconds

Bentley has announced the ultimate version of its Flying Spur luxury saloon. The Bentley Flying Spur W12 S uses a 626bhp 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine taking it all the way to 202mph, making it the fastest four-door Bentley ever.

The S model also has 820Nm of torque, up 20Nm from the standard W12, delivered in full from as little as 2,000rpm. The top speed is 2mph higher as a result, while the near 2.5-tonne luxury saloon is capable of 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds - one-tenth quicker than the non-S car.

The Flying Spur W12 S isn't just about the numbers, however. It has specific damper settings and retuned suspension to improve handling and aid traction, with optional carbon-ceramic brakes to rein-in that considerable kerbweight. 

Gloss black exterior detailing, tinted front and rear lamps and subtle badging marks out the W12 S, while there's also gloss black seven-spoke 21-inch wheels. Inside, there's a unique 'black engine-spin' finish for the facia, with new treadplates and emblem stiches in the headrests.

Customer deliveries for the W12 S will commence at the end of the year, although Bentley hasn't specified how much it will be over the normal, £154,000 Flying Spur W12. As usual, if you have to ask, you probably can't afford it.
