The Flying Spur W12 is built around the power of a 6.0 litre twin-turbocharged powerplant. It delivers its surge of acceleration with smart fuel efficiency, thanks to its Variable Displacement System.
The W12 engine delivers a fearsome 616 bhp [625 PS] and a maximum torque of 800 Nm, effortlessly propelling both driver and passengers from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds, [0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds] to a top speed of 199 mph [320 km/h].
This incredible performance comes with no ride comfort thanks to the independent computer-controlled air suspension, which maximises impact absorption and isolation. The 8-speed QuickShift transmission ensures that even through multiple gear changes, the ride remains incredibly smooth. So as you press the accelerator, there is no rush of power, just a perfect, even surge that makes overtaking a breeze or accelerating on a long stretch of open road a pure, uninterrupted pleasure.
But among the features that truly set the Flying Spur apart is its advanced all-wheel drive powertrain. A Torsen centre differential distributes power automatically between the front and rear axels – whichever is judged to have established greatest traction. A 40:60 rear-biased torque split helps to sharpen the handling, reducing understeer and providing more engagement with the road. It delivers an irresistible ride, whether you’re idling through traffic in town, or at full throttle on the open road.
