The options list is now better than ever.
Bentley. It's not a brand you associate with discomfort. You never the hear the word's "entry" and "level" in that order, one after the other, when you're speaking about a Bentley. In addition to making some of the most luxurious and perfectly finished cars in the world, those cars are damn fast. Still, although the interior of the Bentley Flying Spur is absolutely marvelous, some people will want more, and Bentley wants to cater to them. See, there's a new Rolls-Royce Ghost on the way, and Bentley wants to make sure that the Flying Spur is as appealing as ever.
With that in mind, the British brand has launched new options that include a four-seat layout with electrically-deployable, veneered tables for the rear passengers. In addition, those rear-seat passengers can now be treated to hand cross-stitching and semi-aniline leather. Other changes include a new steering wheel, three new exterior paint options, new wheel finishes, and some now front grille designs. This stuff isn't easy to make either - at least not all of it. That hand cross-stitched upholstery finish takes 18 hours for one skilled worker to complete and requires 11,100 hand-sewn stitches to be made throughout the cabin. And you thought your job was monotonous and pressured.
The interior's decorative inlays can also now be finished in a high gloss carbon fiber, while a watch-inspired Cotes de Geneve finish is also available. The paint options we spoke about sound as expensively extravagant as they undoubtedly are, with Viridian, Patina, and Snow Quartz as their names. Ultimately, these options are essentially all aesthetic and won't make the Flying Spur any better or any worse. In fact, we already feel that the Flying Spur is at the top of its game when it comes to passenger comfort and opulence, but when there's money to be spent, manufacturers will always find things for you to spend it on.
