The Mansory Bentley Continental Flying Spur with More Power and Forged Wheels

Mansory has taken the Bentley Continental Flying Spur to a whole new level of speed with their new tuning program that includes everything from new body work, forged wheels, and engine upgrades.

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is the quintessential ultra luxury sedan. It has all the handcrafted goodies and finest materials inside and the highest quality crafted components from the ground up making the ride smooth and buttery soft. What some might not expect is the kick that the engine provides drivers once the throttle is pushed and the twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 begins to churn out power. Mansory wanted to make the Bentley Continental Flying Spur even more spectacular ultra luxury machine by adding in a big list of upgrades that makes driving a glorious experience. Everything from the new forged wheels to the aerodynamically optimized body work is designed for speed and comfort for drivers and passengers. With the upgrades, the Continental Flying Spur is capable of incredible performance figures and exceeds the 800 horsepower mark.

What makes the Mansory Bentley Continental Flying Spur more than just your average ultra luxury sedan is the powerplant that sits beneath its hood. The 6.0-liter W-12 engine has been tuned by Mansory with optimized turbochargers to produce more boost, a modified intercooler system, and revamped ECU software. A full stainless steel exhaust system helps to keep backpressure to a minimum and improve turbocharger response. The engine is good for a whopping 887 horsepower and an electronically-limited 811 lb-ft. of torque going to each of the four new forged wheels. This enables the heavy luxury sedan to reach 62 mph in only 3.6 seconds and 124 mph in just 12.2 seconds. Top speed is an astonishing 211 mph.

All of that power required Mansory to upgrade a few other things on the chassis of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur to handle the extra ponies. The factory rim and tire setup was replaced with a set of lightweight forged wheels made from aluminum alloy that measure 22 inches in diameter. The machined aluminum forged wheels also wear new 295/30 Vredestein tires that are capable of traveling at speeds over 200 mph.

The exterior of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur by Mansory was outfitted with some new aerodynamically optimized parts made from autoclave carbon fiber. The lightweight material makes up the new spoiler lip and air intakes at the front fascia and integrates new LED daytime running lights. A new lightweight hood also helps keep the engine cooler through the use of new vents. Side skirts connect the front and rear forged wheels while a trunk-mounted spoiler and bumper-mounted diffuser setup help to generate downforce at the rear axle.
