Bentley is known as one of the duo of uber-luxury British car manufacturers, the other is Rolls-Royce. These two companies have moved closer than you think over history, with periods of sharing componentry. Today, Bentley is under the VW Group umbrella, whilst Rolls-Royce belongs to BMW. The Flying Spur is one of their iconic nameplates that appeared between 1959 and 1962 on the Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur, and again from 1962 to 1965 on the S3 Continental Flying Spur. Fast forward to 2005, and the Flying Spur nameplate would return, initially known as the Bentley Continental Flying Spur before the Continental name was dropped with the second-generation in 2013. Currently on the third generation, here’s a perfect example of one, a 2020 Bentley Flying Spur W12 from Nevada to pique your interest with just 5,300 miles on the odometer. This single owner car wore a sticker price of $326,815 when new, including over $60,000 worth of options.
A Bentley can be recognized as nothing but a Bentley, such as the iconic nature of its styling and design. The long, swooping lines and general gracefulness mark it out as the supreme sign of someone who’s made it in life. This 2020 Bentley Flying Spur W12 wears a cool Black Crystal exterior and has the Touring Specification optioned as well. The Mulliner Specification that brings about dark gray painted alloys is another highlight, as is Black Gloss Illuminated Radiator Mascot. The panoramic glass tilt and slide sunroof with twin blinds are on hand should you wish to see the sky during your ride. Venturing aboard, you are greeted with LED welcome lamps by Mulliner into a black interior that sports piano black finish, single tone 3-spoke indented hide-trimmed steering wheel, sports pedals, contrast stitching and seat piping, front and rear deep pile mats, mood lighting specification, contrast seatbelts, and embroidered Bentley emblems. Going into the tech toys, there’s a myriad of them including heated and electrically adjustable seats, multi-zone climate control, a sublime NAIM for Bentley sound system, touch-screen infotainment system, air ionizer, inductive phone charger, and digital instrument cluster to name just a few fripperies.
As you might glean from the name, this 2020 Bentley Flying Spur W12 packs an interesting engine, the 6.0L Volkswagen Group W12 powerplant with twin-turbos. This 366ci powerplant is a narrow-angled engine that places four rows of three cylinders each, forming what’s technically known as a WR12. Twin turbochargers help it put out a smidge over 600hp and 590lb-ft, driving all four wheels via an 8-speed PDK transmission and realizing a sub-4 second zero to sixty sprint. The top whack is 211mph in case you were wondering.
