From the sharp lines of its super-formed aluminium exterior to the hand-crafted hides and veneers that adorn the interior, the expertise of Bentley’s craftsmen is evident throughout the Flying Spur W12. Every seam in the A-Grade leather is individually sewn. Every layer of veneer is lacquered and polished by hand. The entire cabin, from the wood and the leather to the architecture that supports the car’s digital technology has been fitted by hand.
While the 6-litre W12 engine can propel the Flying Spur W12 from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 199 mph, the environment inside remains one of absolute calm – not least because of the specially-designed soundproofing installed in the floor and the doors.
