Over the years there have been two vehicles constantly at battle with each other, and they are Bentley and Roll-Royce. For the most part the latter has come out on top, but since both brands have been taken over by different companies, the changes are remarkable, as they both have a new lease of life.
Both Bentley and Roll-Royce have new 2014 models coming to market in 2013, and while some of you may say that each cater for different markets because of their price tags, we beg to differ, as they won’t be as far apart as you would imagine.
On one side we have the 2014 Bentley Flying Spur, and on the other there’s the 2014 Roll-Royce Wraith. So how do these two models compare in terms of specs?
The 2014 Bentley Flying Spur specs are as follows, a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine producing 610 horsepower, an 8-speed automatic transmission, a 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 200mph. Power will be driven to all four wheels, which is so important when you have a car this heavy with that amount of power. However, there is a price to pay for this, as the fuel consumption will be 12 mpg city and 20 mpg highway. The 2014 Bentley Flying Spur price will start from $200,500 without taxes.
The 2014 Roll-Royce Wraith specs are a 6.6-liter W12 engine, which will produce 624 horsepower, again there’s an 8-speed transmission, but only offers rear-wheel drive. The 0-62 mph time is 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph, which we assume has been limited. However, where the two prestige vehicles differ the most apart from the top speed difference is their prices, as the 2014 Roll-Royce Wraith is expected to be around $300,000.
Below we have two videos where you get to see just how these two models differ.
