2012 Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed isn’t simply designed to impress, it is also engineered to give the same result. Lowering the suspension by 10mm and adding uprated springs and dampers, gives the Continental Flying Spur Speed even greater agility and handling dynamics. The result is a harder-edged, sportier feel with tauter handling, even more responsive steering and improved driver feedback. And the car’s crowning glory its 12-cylinder engine is also re-engineered to provide 600bhp (610PS) and 750Nm (553lb ft) of torque; enough to launch you to 60mph from rest in just 4.5 seconds and deliver devastating overtaking ability the car will fire you from 50-70mph in just 2.4 seconds (80-120km/h in 3.1 seconds). From behind, wider rifled-effect sports exhaust tail pipes release the rousing sound of the engine via the acoustically enhanced exhaust system, while unique 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels complete the look by filling the car’s wheel arches for an even more poised appearance. Inside, classic Bentley design touches include unique Speed treadplates, diamond-quilted leather seats, drilled sports pedals and a 3-spoke leather sports steering wheel.

Discrete braking, cornering and traction functions mesh together to provide precise and immediate driving control under difficult or extreme conditions. Self-adjusting air springs and electronic dampers operate independently for each wheel, while permanent all-wheel drive enhances traction control. And the largest front brakes to be found on any passenger car in the world provide commensurate reassurance at the touch of the pedal. The Continental Flying Spur Speed is equipped with the full suite of passive safety equipment which includes a total of six airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and retraction systems for all seats, and a front passenger seat occupant detection system.

Purposeful technology abounds to create a world of comfort with a cutting-edge feel; from the advanced infotainment system that controls an array of functions such as keyless entry, your iPod connection, Bluetooth telephone system or TV tuner, through to the DVD-based Satellite navigation system or intelligent Park Distance Control, that can guide you into the tightest of parking spots. Even the boot can be opened and closed at the click of a button a blessing if you’re loaded down with shopping. Then there is what we are proud to call the world’s finest in-car sound-stage, created exclusively for music-loving Bentley customers who are looking to upgrade the already superb audio system. The system has been engineered by Naim, the market-leading British audio manufacturer renowned the world over for their painstaking craftsmanship and unparalleled sound quality even the legendary Abbey Road recording studios in London use Naim’s speaker technology. With our shared passion for perfection, Naim has a natural affinity with Bentley and the manner in which we work. Even from the rear of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed you will find controls within effortless reach for everything from individual seat adjustments including being able to move the front passenger seat to suit your legroom to individual climate zones, as well as full communications and entertainment settings.

Though it sounds simple, the ability to run on petrol and biofuel, no matter the proportions involved, called for some pioneering engineering to guarantee that we could achieve our environmental targets without sacrificing our reputation for performance and luxury. An advanced Fuel Quality Sensor continuously monitors the ratio of the fuels being used and guides the Engine Control Unit to adjust the engine’s timing. This provides the seamless power delivery that Bentley engines are renowned for and means you don’t have to compromise on performance at the cost of more environmental motoring. The result is our most efficient and yet still most powerful range of Bentley Continentals Flying Spur Speed to date
