To celebrate the launch of the Flying Spur Hybrid, Bentley unveiled the Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition – the first step on a journey to introduce new sustainable materials as part of its Beyond100 strategy.
The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition utilizes an advanced hybrid powertrain to deliver a combined power of 536 bhp (544 PS) and 750 Nm (553 lb.ft) of torque. The car also includes new and even more sustainable materials throughout the cabin. The cabin features panels of beautifully crafted tweed made from 100% British wool, twisting a blend of tonal colors into a bespoke yarn to create a unique natural luxury textile, especially for Bentley.
The open-pore Koa veneer fascias and waist rails use 90% less lacquer than high-gloss veneers, and allow the natural surface texture and aesthetic of the wood to be visible. Selected from only the very best, most figured stock available, open-pore veneer is painted with just three ultra-thin layers of lacquer.
The center console is finished in a sleek, minimalist Piano Linen veneer, while a dedicated three-color leather scheme provides the whole interior new depth. Together with new materials, sustainable leather is used widely across the cabin, thanks to its long-term durability.
Accents to the interior are in a soft, warm hide called Autumn, with customers able to choose from five specifications that use Beluga, Porpoise, Cricketball, Brunel or Burnt Oak leather together with light, modern Linen hide. A unique Odyssean Edition treadplate becomes apparent when entering or exiting the car, and is matched with exterior D-pillar badging. Deep pile overmats feature contrast binding, and can be upgraded to lambswool rugs.
To the exterior, painted Pale Brodgar accents on the 21” ten twin-spoke wheels and lower brightware (front and rear bumpers, headlight and tail light surrounds and lower body side chrome) create a uniquely serene character. A curated exterior palette of six colors have been offered to match the Pale Brodgar accents, but the full Bentley palette can be chosen from.
The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition’s new powertrain includes a 2.9-liter V6 petrol engine with an advanced electric motor. The latest hybrid model can pass 60 mph from a standstill in 4.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.3 secs).
Delivering a total of 536 bhp (544 PS) and 750 Nm (553 lb.ft) of torque – an additional 95 bhp in comparison to the Bentayga Hybrid. The Flying Spur Odyssean has the capability to cover over 700 km when fully fuelled.
