2016 Bentley Flying Spur Ups the Ante with Mulliner Goodies

The four-door brother of the Bentley Continental GT just got a whole lot more glamorous thanks to Mulliner. The personal commissioning department of Bentley prides itself on introducing bespoke features in the Flying Spur, starting with a refrigerated bottle cooler between the rear seats.

In the world of full-size luxury limousines, there are few things more extravagant than enjoying a refrigerated champagne while being chauffeured around. We’re referring to champagnes with six-figure pricing, such as the uber desirable Gout de Diamants of Shammi Shinh.

Other than the refrigerated cooler (which takes 15 hours to be hand-built and trimmed), Mulliner can also equip the Flying Spur with two extremely special champagne flutes. The specialness of it all can be found at the base of the flutes, which mirrors the design of the car's rims.

If you fancy painted veneers inside your Flying Spur, the Crewe-based British manufacturer’s in-house coach-building division is much obliged to offer such veneers... for the right price, of course. The next step after lamb wool polished veneers is to equip your Bentley Flying Spur with a pair of sterling silver atomizers, designed to spray a fine mist of perfume for the rear seat occupants whenever they feel the need for it.

The Mulliner treatment is available for both versions of the 2016 Bentley Flying Spur. As a brief reminder, the V8-powered Flying Spur makes do with 507 PS and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) from 3,993 cubic centimeters. For those who want four more cylinders under the flying B emblem, the 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 will soothe your fevered brow with 625 PS and a mountain of torque (800 Nm / 590 lb-ft).

An 8-speed automatic transmission developed by ZF is the only cog-swapping solution available for this opulent but gentle giant. Every Flying Spur in Mulliner specification further adds diamond quilting, a knurled gear lever, as well as drilled alloy pedals.
