Video: Bentley Continental Flying Spur by Linley

Bentley has produced a special version of its Continental Flying Spur model for the Chinese market – the largest for its four-door cars – in association with British bespoke furniture design house Linley.

The somewhat awkwardly named car (officially titled 'Linley for Bentley limited edition Continental Flying Spur') has a raft of Linley-designed interior alterations, and will be limited to just 10 examples. Various signature Linley elements adorn the car’s already well-appointed interior, and are “designed to appeal to customers who value pedigree and lineage, handcrafted quality and peerless design”. These include the addition of Linley veneers and signature Helix marquetry throughout, and a customer-specified humidor in the rear, including a humidification system, cigar cutter and ashtray.

Ironically, the collaboration between the British duo is unlikely to be seen on these shores: all 10 will be shipped to China and sold there.
