Bentley Flying Spur Shows It Can Run With Supercars On The Autobahn

A 5,500 Lbs Bentley Flying Spur that can keep up with modern supercars on the Autobahn? Yes, please!

The Bentley Flying Spur demonstrates, it has a higher top speed than many supercars

It may be the road-going equivalent of a cruise liner, but at 207 mph (333 km/h) , it's a wicked fast cruise liner, despite weighing more than many SUVs

The Bentley Flying Spur is a collection of insane figures

With a starting price of around $215,000, the third-generation Bentley Flying Spur (like the ones before it) costs qite abit of money. However, at over 5,602 lbs (2,541 kg) and 209.3 inches (5,320 mm) it's also a lot of car

The most powerful of three engine options

While you can have the Flying Spur with with a 2.9-liter V-6 hybrid and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, this 6.0-liter twin-turbo W-12 is the one to get. With 635 hp and 664 lb/ft, it sprints to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on to a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h)

Unexpectedly, the Bentley Flying Spur shows duality in character

While the ultra-luxury sedan spoils you with all sorts of luxury, the car can also be surprisingly sporty, for something of that size and weight

The Bentley Flying Spur comes with automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive, regardless of the engine choice

Whichever of the 3 engine options yo ugo for, your Flying Spur will always have an 6-speed, dual-clutch automatic and a clever all-wheel-drive system

The big Bentley makes 200+ mph look easy

The driver of the Bentley makes 2 attempts at the top speed. On top of 6th gear, the Flying Spur manages 203 mph (327 km/h), which is just shy of the car's top speed
