Neil Harris, Area Sales Manager, Bentley Motors, Middle East Africa and India, said: “The new Flying Spur is a leap forward in combining the state-of-the-art high technology with a modern ultra-luxurious interior and exterior. We are very excited and thrilled to bring the world’s most luxury sedan the all-new ‘Flying Spur’ in the New Year to our enthusiasts in Bahrain.”
The new Flying Spur is powered by a reworked six-litre W12 that delivers 626 horsepower, which is enough to propel the giant car from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 207 mph – 14 mph up from the outgoing model. Besides, the most elegant car showcases Bentley’s modern sculptural design language through elegant yet muscular proportions, and the marque’s latest generation of unique, cut-crystal effect LED matrix headlamps and new wrap-around rear lamps with ‘B’ motifs.
At the heart of the new Flying Spur is an enhanced version of Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12, mated to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission for faster, smoother gear changes. This new TSI engine delivers 635 PS (626 bhp) and 900 Nm (664 lb.ft.), 0-100 km/h time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 333 km/h.
Its long wheelbase means the new Flying Spur features a spacious and luxurious cabin that offers peerless comfort and refinement. As well as an extensive list of Single and Dual Veneer wood options, the sedan offers both Bentley’s new fluted leather seating and the unique Mulliner Driving Specification diamond quilting on the seats and an automotive world-first: three-dimensional diamond-quilted leather door inserts.
