Bentley's most powerful four-door model ever makes its global debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on 5th March.

The Flying Spur has a 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, coupled to a ZF eight-speed transmission under the hood, developing  800 Nm of torque. Bentley claims there is a 14 per cent improvement in the power-to-weight ratio over the outgoing model and the Flying Spur delivers 0-60 kmh in 4.3 seconds and a top-speed of 322 kmh).

In the modern Bentley tradition, power is delivered to the road via all-wheel drive with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split.

As expected of any car with the Bentley badge, it is packed full of luxurious features with many to be chosen and included at the owner's request.
