Bentley continues to refresh its lineup with a number of updates made to the Flying Spur luxury saloon for the 2021 model year.
The updates focus on the interior, but there are several new options available for the exterior as well. Those include three new exterior paint colors (Viridian, Patina and Snow Quartz), which expand the range to 62 colors. Customers also have access to the full Bentley Mulliner palette of satin and pearlescent options, as well as full bespoke color matching on request.
Bentley also offers a bright chrome finish for the main radiator grille as well as two new wheels: one finished in gloss black and the other in black and machine.
For the interior, customers can now choose a four-seat cabin, available with electrically-deployed, veneered picnic tables. The rear cabin of the Flying Spur also gains hand cross-stitching and semi-aniline leather.
Bentley says the hand cross stitch process takes 18 hours for one craftsperson and requires 11,100 hand sewn stitches to be made throughout the cabin. The unique thread is said to be extremely durable, using special dyes to maintain its color for the lifespan of the vehicle.
Also present on the list of options are veneered inserts for the rear doors, a newly-designed standard steering wheel with increased safety functionality, and two new technical finishes for those who don’t want the standard contemporary wood veneers: carbon fiber and Côtes de Genève.
Buyers who order the new four-seat configuration benefit from a long-through console extending from the front console to the rear. It includes a new housing for the 5-inch touchscreen remote, twin cup holders and extra stowage.
The rear armrest, which can be heated and incorporate a wireless charging point, features a bright metal finisher and hides two USB ports and a 12v power socket.
