The 2014 Bentley Flying Spur is technically the closest thing to a mid-range supercar you’re even going to find from the world’s most premium auto brand. Mid-range only because while the new flying spur outpaces the Continental GT, it’s not quite on par with the range-topping and eye-popping Mulsanne.
Having already made its presence known to the world with a suitably showy appearance at the Geneva Motor Show, the 2014 Flying Spur’s inclusion at the New York Motor show represents the first time it’s been seen in US soil…officially speaking, anyway.
The 2014 Flying Spur made its official debut at the veritable parking lot of ultra-luxury automobiles that was this year’s Geneva Motor Show. However, the New York auto show is the plush sedan’s first official appearance in the United States.
Roughly summed up according to Bentley executives, what you’re looking at with the 2014 Flying Spur is the company’s fastest and most powerful four-door vehicle ever made. And this would certainly seem to tally up with the specs and features on paper – fronted by a massive 6-liter W12 engine that delivers an ungodly 616BHP. In conjunction with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and Bentley’s usual witchcraft inside and out, this leviathan of a luxury toy is somehow able to take care of zero to 60MPH in just over 4-seconds and tops out at an impressive 200MPH.
An exact release date for the 2014 Flying Spur is yet to be pinned down, but Bentley has promised that it will launch in Q2 and sport a price tag of $200,000 – a steal, given some of the other wallet-busters at the same auto show.
