Raptor and TRX owners beware
When it comes to luxury cars, few do it better than Bentley, and the Continental GT is the one to go for if you want the full-fat experience. This luxury saloon is not only a five-star hotel room on wheels, but it's pretty quick as well and was designed to cruise city streets in comfort, and comfortably cruise down highways at illegal speeds. For those that want to take that experience off-road, the company offers the Bentayga SUV. The Bentayga offers its owner true off-road capability (if they're willing to go there in a car that can easily cost up to $250,000), but Bentley still doesn't offer one crucial class of car: a pickup truck. Until now.
A person in the UK with lots of time, and money, has decided to turn one of these exclusive luxury cars into a pickup truck. This 2005 Bentley Continental Flying Spur was delivered to custom car builders DC customs, which usually specializes in retro Volkswagen and exotic supercar builds and modifications. In January of 2020 the car rolled into the DC customs warehouse, where the team started by welding the rear doors shut, the roofline shortened, and, as you can see, the entire rear customized to now feature a load bed. Instead of a traditional rubber-lined bed, this Bentley features a teak-finish that is likely only ever to see picnic baskets and the occasional dead fox. The interior has been modified with a full leather headliner, but things mostly remain unchanged in the front.
Under the hood, this British pickup houses a 583 horsepower twin-turbo W12 engine, making it more powerful than a Ford F-150 Raptor, but still not as impressive as a Ram 1500 TRX. "The Bentley Flying Spur pickup left us today after one of the biggest builds and biggest challenges to date. A lot of people thought we were mad cutting up a Flying Spur - probably right, lol - and thought it just wouldn't look good. But personally, I think we nailed it and must admit that we're proud of this one," DC Customs wrote on its Instagram page.
