Watch This Bentley Flying Spur Cruise Past 210 MPH

Video / Comments

The ultra-lux sedan doesn't even break a sweat.

What do you get when you mix supercars with the German Autobahn? Firstly you get a whole lot of speed, and secondly a ton of fun. The Autobahn has been the unofficial top-speed testing ground of gearheads across the globe for years and sees all kinds of exotic machinery barreling down its smooth straights. One such example is this Bentley Flying Spur, which has been videod reaching an incredible 211 mph.

We've covered other cars doing insane speeds down the autobahn before, such as a Porsche 911 Turbo S doing 206 mph, or an Audi RS Q8 SUV touching 190 mph, but none of them manage to do so in the same relaxed manner as the Bentley.

What makes this video so interesting is the fact that this isn't a supercar barreling down the highway, but a stately Bentley which should be cruising at regular highway speeds with some VIPs in the back. It is caught here easily passing 200 mph. Officially, the Flying Spur should have a top speed of 207 mph, but that is clearly a blatant lie, as the car in the video trumps that number without breaking a sweat.

The Flying Spur is powered by a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine generating 626 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque which is enough to get it to sixty in only 3.7 seconds.

In the video, the car is seen rushing past the 100 mph mark in the blink of an eye, and the 150 mph mark is also crossed with no effort whatsoever. Once we get over those speeds, you can start to hear some serious wind noise creeping into the cabin as the rate of acceleration slows down. Trucks are overtaken as if standing still, and the lanes ahead of the car seem to blur into one.

The Flying Spur finally hits an amazing 211 mph (340 kph) on a clean straight, with the RPMs sitting right at the 6k mark. YouTuber J Chan comments "they weren't kidding with the 'Flying' part of its name". It sure takes big balls to drive a big car like that so fast. We applaud you, good sir.
