Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed

Bentley managed to develop a new model, the Continental Flying Spur, which receives power from a W12 engine capable of generating 600 BHP and 750 Nm of torque. The engineers have offered a 9% increase in power and 15% increase in torque. The output mentioned above enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 200 mph. The specialists have improved steering response achieved through retuned speed-sensitive Servo-Tronic system, solid mounted front sub frame and stiffer rear bushings. In terms of exterior, you should know the model has front grille and lower air intakes in dark-tinted chrome matrix, bright chrome grilles available as a no cost option wider rifled sports exhaust tail pipes and a 3-spoke Sport leather steering wheel. The engineers have also provided optional bright or dark tint aluminum fascia panel, drilled alloy sport foot-pedals, knurled chrome / hide gearlever and diamond quilted hide to seat facings and door panels. This model is actually the most powerful four-door Bentley ever made and it blends understated design cues to distinguish it from the Flying Spur. Its front grille and lower air intakes are dark-tinted chrome, while at the rear wider rifled sports exhaust tailpipes hint at the potential of the Speed model. Improved agility and body control is also achieved through upgraded spring and damper settings as well as thicker anti-roll bars front and rear. The model was lowered by 10 mm with self-leveling air suspension. The advanced electronic stability program provides a greater degree of driver interaction and control. The Flying Spur Speed redefines customer expectations of a large, four-door luxury saloon. It advances its Bentley performance credentials while delivering outstanding refinement and comfort through our unique application of advanced technology and traditional craftsmanship. This is all for now, folks.
