The “regular” Bentley Flying Spur is already one of the plushiest car money can (realistically) buy. But when that is still not enough, Bentley has just unveiled an even posher Flying Spur Mulliner for the lucky 1-percenters.
Claimed to offer the “the ultimate in four-door luxury”, the Bentley Flying Spur Mulliner is now the luxury carmaker’s most expensive series-production model to date. Anything more, and you’ll have to ask the Mulliner coachbuilding department to specifically make one for you.
So what makes this Bentley Flying Spur Mulliner special? On the outside, the top-of-the-range edition gets several Mulliner-exclusive touches including the unique “double diamond” front grille and chrome lower intakes, matching wing vents, satin silver-painted wing mirror caps, and an electrically deployed and illuminated Bentley Flying B ornament.
The Mulliner also has a unique set of 22-inch grey Mulliner wheels, replete with self-levelling wheel caps that remain upright as the wheels rotate, plus “jewel” fuel and oil caps. Rather mild by Mulliner’s standards, but still enough to help the car stand out without being gaudy.
Inside, though, is where things get a little more flashy. Buyers can choose from eight different hand-picked three-colour combinations, all with the same attention to detail and flair you’d expect from a Bentley.
The one you see here in the photos is called Ascot, with imperial blue leather on the dashboard, doors, and headlining, a light tan hue called “Camel” on the seats, and white serving as the accent colour on the micro-piping, embroidery and accent lines.
The Mulliner Driving Specification is fitted as standard on the range-topping Flying Spur trim, which brings with it Bentley’s iconic diamond-in-diamond seat quilting, and three-dimensional leather details on the doors.
And to demonstrate what we mean by “Bentley’s attention to detail”, each of the diamonds are made up of exactly 712 individual stitches! According to Bentley, the embroidery process itself took 18 months to develop, but the results are, we think, well worth it.
Wrapping up the interior are the brushed silver Mulliner Breitling clock, illuminated Mulliner sill plates, extra deep-pile Mulliner overmats, plus unique Mulliner-exclusive electrically-operated veneer and leather picnic tables for the rear passengers that deploy at just a push of a button.
Last but definitely not least, each customer will receive their cars with a unique Mulliner-branded handcrafted presentation box, which matches the exact three-colour combination of their car’s cabin. The keys themselves are also similarly colour-matched with leather.
The Mulliner variant will be offered with any of the existing Bentley Flying Spur’s powertrain options, which means you can choose between a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, 6.0-litre W12, or the recently-launched 3.0-litre V6 hybrid.
Pricing wise, well – as they say, if you have to ask…
