EIGHT GEARS, SIX LITRES AND FOUR DRIVEN WHEELS
As Bentley’s virtually hefty locomotive, the 6.0-litre, counterpart turbocharged, 48-valve W12 is the innate option to might the quickest e’er Bentley four-door. Now delivering 625 PS (616 bhp) at 6,000 rev/min and a stupefying 800 Nm (580 lb ft) of torsion from alone 2000 rev/min, the W12 has lately undergone a discharge locomotive direction scheme rise to the up-to-the-minute Bosch ME17 port. Improved torsion direction, turbocharger ascendence, driveability and emissions execution all answer from the espousal and optimization of the new scheme, with a resulting betterment in low fastness reactivity.
Conjugated to the W12 is the really modish eight-speed, quick-shift robotlike contagion from ZF. All Bentley models now sport this state-of-the-art gearbox. Delivering unseamed and unperceivable shifts in nether 200 milliseconds, the gearbox is not solitary intentional to handgrip the mightily torsion outturn of the W12 but besides to insure smoothen and polished deliverance of mightiness to the wheels. An optimised set of gearing ratios keeps the locomotive in its about effective operational stove nether twinkle lots and when cruising, contributive in an boilersuit advance in fire usance and CO2 emissions of more 13 per centime concluded the forthcoming modeling. The new Bentley Fast-flying Spurring delivers a combined hertz fire thriftiness of 19.2 mpg (14.7 litres/100 km), and CO2 emissions of 343 g/km – telling figures for a 12-cylinder ultra-luxury, eminent operation saloon.
The infection feeds might to all four-spot wheels via Bentley’s famous all-wheel campaign organisation. With a measure torsion tear of 60 per penny to the ass wheels and 40 per penny to the figurehead, but the power to motley this partition capable 85 per centime to the ass axle or 65 per penny to the breast contingent uncommitted grip, the Fast Gad’s drivetrain ensures optimum grasp irrespective of predominant route or conditions weather. The self-confidence provided by such a surefooted set-up agency that the mettlesome driver can deploy all of the car’s useable exponent and torsion in a controlled and safe mode, in nigh any destiny.
A REFINED RIDE WITH DYNAMIC DELIVERY
With owing rally quilt of life-sustaining grandness, the freelance computer-controlled air dangling of the new Fast Urging is redesigned to maximize brownie immersion and isolation.

Anti-roll bars are muted by 13 per centime and 15 per centime to ameliorate 1 cycle elf assimilation. Hanging prize bushes all-around are muffled by leastways 25 per penny for rock-bottom route surface-induced randomness and quiver.
Running with the new springs, a muffler hydraulic spec has been highly-developed to maximize drive ease. Functional with a revised muffler electronic mastery (CDC) scheme, this enables particular low swiftness bait operation spell damping effect increases importantly with fastness, providing the optimal counterpoise ‘tween consistence controller and stableness at all speeds. A four-position abatement restraint, with a widened grasp of settings, allows drivers to prefer the floor of damping to courting their penchant.
The index direction arrangement provides a comfort-orientated equaliser whilst maintaining optimal guidance spirit and preciseness passim the swiftness orbit. A new spec of guidance pitch, jointly a new standardization of the speed-sensitive arrangement that regulates hydraulic mobile menstruum, provides varying assist contingent fomite velocity. The new organisation delivers both mellow levels of isolation from aerofoil deformations whilst ensuring driver trust done the combining of exact direction preciseness and a mensural gain in direction exploit when cornering.
As the new Flight Prod approaches its 200 mph (322 km/h) top upper, the drive stature is mechanically lowered via the air suspension in fiat to indemnify for flowing forces. This helps not solitary to meliorate fomite constancy by optimising flowing equaliser on the car, but besides reduces hale, with benefits both to top fastness and CO2 production. The new car has a two-stage heavy scheme, foremost sullen by 5 mm at the presence and 10 mm at the bottom at 121 mph (195 km/h) then by a advance 8 mm and 13 mm severally at 149 mph (240 km/h).
The multiple-mode Electronic Stableness Mastery (ESC) organization is recalibrated to sour in compounding with the new flesh stipulation. The scheme is graduated to control that the enthusiastic driver is not hindered by constancy interventions and, where capture done the option of the ESC Dynamical Modality, the driver can advance research the manipulation limits of the fomite whilst lull maintaining capture levels of constancy command.
