Bentley launches limited edition Continental Flying Spur in collaboration with Linley (Photos)
Bentley begins a new association with Brit design company Linley to bring forth a novel limited edition collection. The collaboration paves the way for 10 Continental Flying Spur. To be sold in China, Bentley’s largest four door market, the limited edition CFS models would reflect signature Linley elements.
The limited edition Continental Flying Spur for China would appeal to those who believe in superior handcrafted quality and design. The console, fascia, roof console waistrail see the use of unique Linley veneers in Santos rosewood instead of the usual Bentley chestnut or walnut wood for the first time ever. There’s an in-built fridge close to the rear console for bottle storage. A pop-up vanity mirror has been made available too.
Borrowed from the Linley Helix Furniture Collection, the Linley Helix motif by virtue of skilful marquetry inlay is affixed in the waist-rails and picnic table of the limited edition CFS models. Esteemed customers will also find a customer-commissioned Linley humidor in the rear console. Linley stainless steel treadplates and rhodium-plated plaque in the glove box are delightful. Luxury is an embodiment with the new cars and you’ll find traces of brilliance in every little eye for details including a Linley branded leather bag that holds a cashmere blanket.
Member of the board for personnel, Bentley Motors, Christine Gaskell had this to say at the Jack Barclay, Bentley dealer launch in London’s Berkeley Square. “Our collaboration with Linley brings a new element to the interior of one of our globally best-selling models. The Continental Flying Spur has a unique executive style and elegance which is complemented wonderfully by the Linley veneers. We share an expertise in the use of natural materials and a commitment to superlative craftsmanship.”
Chairman of Linley, David Linley says, “It is a great honor to be working alongside such an esteemed British brand as Bentley. Our two brands share a commitment to superlative craftsmanship and design. I believe that the culmination of our efforts has resulted in a car that is utterly unique and reflective of the passion that both brands share for pushing boundaries of engineering and excellence.”
