Luxury comes at a cost. If you’re genuinely worried about how much the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur will drain from your bank account, it’s probably not for you. However checking out images of this ultra-luxury vehicle is free of charge.
Curren$y has the old model, which is still nothing to sneeze at, but it ain’t got nothing on the update which dropped the “Continental” branding. Here are some technical specifications you should take note of, per Bentley Motors:
•The 6 litre W12 engine is capable of 616 bhp and produces a maximum torque of 800 Nm. It can propel the Flying Spur from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds – and on to a top speed of 200 mph.
•The 8-speed transmission ensures the car is always in the optimum gear, so it is responsive at low speeds and incredibly smooth, even through multiple gear changes.
•The optional Wi-Fi hub provides internet access for tablets, laptops and phones. With its 64 GB internal hard drive, it provides enough room to share practically anything that can be stored on a modern-day digital device.
•The rear seats include DVD players, wireless headphones and LCD screens, along with ports enabling you to connect consoles, tablets, cameras, music players and phones.
•Every hand-upholstered leather seat is individually sewn, hand-fitted and signed by the upholsterer on the back of the hide, which undergoes a traditional tanning process beforehand, to give it a rich, luxurious leather aroma.
The cost of the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur is still TBD, but as a reference, the 2013 version cost a stately $187,000. There is also a Bentley Flying Spur Mulliner that ups the ante with 21” alloy wheels, diamond-quilted seats, sport pedals and other design flourishes.
