Bentley Motors has introduced a limited edition Flying Spur Hybrid - Odyssean Edition.

The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition aims to showcase the brand's direction towards sustainable luxury.
Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition unique interior
The latest version of the Flying Spur stands out primarily for its interior. The brand's designers decided to introduce a wider range of sustainable materials using the EXP 100 GT concept car unveiled two years ago.
Customers who order a copy of the Odyssean Edition will find, among other things, British wool tweed pieces in muted tones. On special request, the standard coarse pile carpets can be replaced with sheep wool versions, which will give the interior an even warmer and more natural character. The koa wood veneer has been lightly varnished on the 90% to retain the look and texture of the natural material. The wood was covered with three thin layers of varnish with a total thickness of only 0.1 mm.
The model also featured leather components from sustainable sources. When designing the Odyssean Edition, the Bentley Motors team was inspired by the 1955 Flying Spur, which still boasts premium leather 66 years later. Buyers are offered a choice of five leather color specifications: Beluga, Porpoise, Cricketball, Brunel and Burnt Oak, which match Linen's light leather surfaces. The leather details are embellished with tri-color thread diamond embroidery typical of the Flying Spur.
The Odyssean Edition also features a unique color combination for the model's body. The car draws attention with Pale Brodgar accents on 21-inch wheels, front and rear lights and side moldings. Designers recommend a palette of six paint colors to match Pale Brodgar, but buyers can choose from Bentley's extensive offerings.
The Flying Spur Hybrid is in line with the Beyond100 brand's strategy of launching a full range of hybrid vehicles by 2026 and electric vehicles by 2030. The new vehicle aims to prove that the hybridization process can be carried out with consistently high levels of luxury and efficiency. An internal study by the Bentley team found that almost all users of the brand's first electrified model, the Bentayga Hybrid, use electric mode, and half of them drive less than 30 miles a day. This means that you can only travel daily in emission-free electric mode.
The combined output of the Flying Spur Hybrid is 544 hp. and 750 Nm of maximum torque. Thanks to the 2.9-liter V6 engine and the electric unit, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h. in 4.3 seconds. The cruising range of a fully fueled and charged car will be more than 700 km.
