2014 New Bentley Flying Spur – Official Video

The 6.0-liter W-12 sees increased output, from 552 horsepower to 616 and 479 lb-ft of torque to 590, the new figures being the same as those of the uplevel Continental GT Speed. Rather than last year’s six-speed automatic, the 12-holer now spins cogs in ZF’s eight-ratio autobox. Pleased with the effect of the slight rearward bias in the all-wheel-drive system of its extreme Continental GT Supersports, Bentley has applied that model’s nominal 40/60 front-to-rear torque split to the Flying Spur as well. When necessary, the car can punt 65 percent forward or 85 percent aft.
