Bentley has manufactured its 500th and final Mulliner car for the year 2022
This Flying Spur S Hybrid will soon join its British owner
Crises come and go but luxury resists. Since its creation in 2014, Bentley’s bespoke department, Mulliner, has produced no less than 1,000 vehicles in seven years. Even better: in 2022 alone, the ultra-luxury branch of the British brand put its stamp on 500 cars, increasing its profits by 36%. This is proof that customisation sold at a high price is successful. Colours, upholstery, rims, trim… Everything can be made to order.
The 500th and last Mulliner model is a Flying Spur S Hybrid. The car in question is painted in a blue colour called Spark with pastel accents. The bright colour contrasts with the glossy black of the Blackline finish on the window surrounds, mirrors, side strips, front wings, grille and logo. The car sits on 22-inch wheels, also in black.
On board we find a rather sober atmosphere with an omnipresent black colour. The Beluga leather upholstery, for example, is finished with a quilted checkerboard pattern and wraps the seats in blue trim. The blue S logo is also embedded in the seat backs. The dashboard is finished in high-gloss carbon, while the gear lever and lower part of the steering wheel have also been given a blue treatment.
Technically, the Flying Spur S Hybrid has a 2.9-litre V6 engine combined with a 100 kW electric motor. Together they produce 544 PS and 750 Nm of torque and are combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive comes as standard, and the electric range is around 40 km. The price of this latest Mulliner is not known and has certainly been kept under wraps.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
