Bentley has revealed a limited edition car in the form of their luxury saloon called Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition which draws inspiration from the EXP 100 GT concept car that defines Bentley’s view of luxury mobility in 2035. The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition is the Crewe based automaker’s first step on a journey to introduce new sustainable materials as part of its Beyond100 strategy.
EXP 100 GT interior materials
Inside, Odyssean Edition treadplate becomes apparent when entering or exiting the vehicle, which is matched with exterior D-pillar badging. The cabin features sustainable leather with exclusive new embroidery styling, panels of beautifully crafted tweed made from 100% British wool, open pore Koa veneer fascias and waistrails that use 90% less lacquer than high-gloss veneers.
The centre console is finished in a sleek, minimalist Piano Linen veneer, while a dedicated three-colour leather scheme lends the whole interior new depth. Accents to the interior are in a soft, warm hide called Autumn, with customers able to choose from five specifications that utilise Beluga, Porpoise, Cricketball, Brunel or Burnt Oak leather in tandem with light, modern Linen hide.
Odyssean Edition exterior design
The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition features 21-inch ten spoke wheels with Pale Brodgar accents. A curated exterior palette of six colours have been recommended to compliment the Pale Brodgar accents, but the full Bentley palette can be chosen from.
Along with the unique colour and trim features, the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition also includes a suite of equipment options, including: Touring specification, illuminated Flying B bonnet mascot, LED Welcome Lamps (projecting Bentley Wings to the floor from all four doors) and lather headliner to name a few.
Underneath the Flying Spur’s long bonnet is a 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine with an advanced 14.1 kWh lithium ion battery powering the electric motor. It delivers 400 kW and 750 Nm. Bentley claims 0-100 km/h is in 4.3 seconds and a range of 700 km when fully fueled.
