Bentley Odyssean Brings Stunning Quilting and Tweed to Flying Spur

  • Model tests new sustainable materials that also add luxury

  • Includes British wool, reduced laquer use


Bentley calls its latest special edition a glimpse into the company’s future. The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition pushes even the luxury automaker’s limits for craftspersons and uses new and more sustainable interior materials including open-pore wood and even tweed.

The special Bentley Flying Spur takes its inspiration from the interior of the EXP 100 GT concept, a prior concept car that was meant to preview the Bentley of 2035. In common with that concept’s ombré finishes, the Odyssean Edition has a new embroidery style that blends colours into each other across the width of each seat. It’s part of the new lofted diamond pattern that provides a stunning effect on the car’s seats.

Wool tweed is used to craft the interior panels of the car. Bentley says that the blends create a bespoke yarn and a luxury textile that is exclusive to the brand. More wool can be fitted in the form of lambswool rug floor mats, again more sustainable than prior carpeting.

Koa veneers use 90 percent less lacquer than glossy finishes while adding a premium appearance and letting the beauty of the wood show through. Other materials were picked for durability using the company’s own 1955 S1 Flying Spur as a guide as that car proudly wears its 66-year-old leather interior.

Other tweaks include pale brodgar accents, 21-inch wheels, and sux curated colours. The PHEV model offers 536 hp, 553 lb-ft, and can run purely on electric power for short distances.
