The Flying Spur can now be configured to include a four seat configuration, semi-aniline leather, hand cross stitching, veneered inserts for the rear doors and electrically operated picnic tables.
To the exterior, three new paint colours are introduced along with full access to the Bentley Mulliner palette of satin and pearlescent options, further enhanced by new wheel finishes and the option of full chrome front matrix grilles.
The console includes a new housing for the 5” touchscreen remote, twin cup holders and extra stowage. The rear armrest includes a bright metal finisher and hides two USB ports and a 12v power socket. The armrest can be heated, with the option of a wireless charging point.
The leather is specifically used for seat inserts and has a more natural aspect bringing out the grain of the material. It is also more breathable due to the reduced thickness and is especially beneficial in hotter climates.
Electrically operated picnic tables mounted in the rear of the front seat can be deployed with a single press of a button. The veneer covered table lowers, self-levels and reveals a leather trimmed surface with a recess for a pen or stylus. Holding the button down the table elegantly returns to its home position.

Rear door veneer inserts complementing the picnic tables can be specified to accentuate the flowing styling lines from the front to rear cabin including the rear occupants in the ambience and design of the interior.
A new style steering wheel is launched as standard, with a revised shape and profile. The new wheel includes capacitive sensing throughout the wheel rim, allowing the steering wheel to detect when it is being held – a vital new safety measure for the car’s semi-autonomous Driver Assistance Systems, where new legislation stipulates that drivers must keep in contact with the wheel at all times when the car is moving.
Bentleys designers have revised the steering wheel by adding a jewelled bezel at the base of the vertical spoke which themselves have been reshaped.
Interior of Bentley’s Flying Spur
Two new technical finishes in lieu of contemporary wood veneers are now available around the cabin of the Flying Spur, complementing its performance and technology. A high gloss carbon fibre technical finish can be chosen, providing a seamless geometric surface, flowing around the cockpit from one door to the other
Similarly, the stunning Côtes de Genève finish, inspired by the precision-machined dust-catching treatment used by the finest watches, is now available to complete the centre console as per the Flying Spur’s Continental GT cousin.
