Bentley Continental Flying Spur Linley Limited Edition On The Way

by Will Parker

The British luxury car manufacturer, Bentley today announced that it has joined forces with British design company Linley to create a limited edition of the Continental Flying Spur.

Expect the new model to come with key Linley elements in the cabin, including Linley veneers (Santos rosewood). This will also be found on the fascia, console, waistrail and roof console, being integrated within an automobile for the first time. It seems that the veneers will be used on the entire wood surfaces, where Bentley walnut or chestnut could usually be found.

In addition to that, the Linley Helix motif (which is borrowed from the Helix Furniture Collection) will be used for the waist-rails and picnic table of the Flying Spurs. Beside this, the rear console will receive a customer-ordered Linley humidor.

“The car had to look different and we wanted a strong statement inside the interior, so we chose Santos rosewood, a straight grain veneer. Bentley usually uses burr veneers for their interiors as they are more malleable around compound curves. Using a straight grain veneer was a new challenge but together we succeeded and the final results look stunning,” Mark Blanchard, Head of Design at Linley, explains. 

Finally, Linley will put its final mark which will be a branded leather bag. This will be placed in the boot of the car, together with other Linley items. These itmes include a cashmere blanket and a leather luggage tag.

According to the British manufacturer only ten units of the car will be produced and they will be destined for the Chinese market. This is the way that the carmaker chosed to show appreciation for its biggest four-door market.
