Built by the carmaker’s commissioning division, the Bentley Flying Spur Design Series by Mulliner is about contrasts and highlights.
Bentley Flying Spur Design Series by Mulliner isn’t the carmaker’s attempt to beat Rolls Royce. But it is of course one way to get more attention from the younger buyers. And the crew from Crewe has put in efforts both on the outside and the inside to make the limited edition Flying Spur look a bit snazzier than the standard version.
Built by Mulliner – Bentley’s commissioning division – the Bentley Flying Spur Design Series will have a very limited production-run of 100 units. So if you like what you see, you better rush to the nearest dealer with the checkbook that can cash a lump sum without delays. Or you can wire transfer the same, if running like Tom Cruise isn’t your thing.
What makes the Design Series car different from the off-the-rack Flying Spur? Five interior and exterior accent colour splits – Mandarin, Pillar Box Red, White, Kingfisher and Azure Purple – available across the Flying Spur range comprising of V8, W12, V8 S and W12 S variants. As always, the client can feel free to go through the extensive list of interior options and features list to customize the car and shell out a lot more dollars in the process.

The Bentley Flying Spur Design Series by Mulliner is all about highlighting and contrasts. Even the press material celebrates that aspect of the package. Like a suit lining or saddle stitching which comes in a contrast color, the Design Series car has vibrant colors as highlights on its body panels and also in the interiors.
The V8 S and W12 S versions are the ones who get all the fabulous additions like the bold front bumper. The V8 S packs 21-inch six twin-spoke wheels as footwear while the W12 S gets 21-inch Directional Sports Wheels. The W12 S being the flagship, has been bestowed with black brightware around the headlamps and grille as well. The V8 and W12 versions of the other hand will have to make peace with the thin contrasting line that runs along the lower portion of the sedan.
Interior enhancements include perforated leather seats with contrasting leather, quilted leather on the seat bolsters and door trim, a 12 o’ clock stripe on the steering wheel, a center console finished in Piano Black and titanium-enriched carbon-fiber trim on the dash and doors.
And to gently remind you on who made the performance-oriented luxury sedan more special, the Welcome Lamps reflect “Mulliner” on the ground.
Ehm… cough… very discreet… cough!
