Bentley called the new Flying Spur’s cabin “the most difficult in history”January 23, 2020
For decoration use bull skins and more than three kilometers of thread
Bentley talked about creating the interior of the new Flying Spur and called it the most difficult in its history. For the first time in the industry, car door panels are decorated with inserts of three-dimensional textured leather, and it takes more than three kilometers of threads to trim the entire cabin.
Each third-generation Bentley Flying Spur has 141 people in the cabin. They stitch 350 pieces of leather with three kilometers of threads and adorn them with 60 unique details. Moreover, Bentley uses only the skins of North European bulls. This is the waste of the meat industry obtained in environmentally friendly industries. The choice of suppliers from climatic zones with more moderate climates allows you to get skin with fewer defects.
The company’s customers have the right to choose the color of the interior of the future car. They are available 14 leather options and 23 types of contrasting stitching.
The steering wheel of a sedan, one of the most time-consuming elements of the passenger compartment, is sheathed only by hand. The master sews more than five meters of thread through 352 holes to finally get 168 cross stitches. It takes about three and a half hours.
Special needles are used in production, and specialist movements are so complex that they cannot be reproduced on any machine. It takes 12 hours to assemble all four; branded “wings” embroidered on them consist of 5102 stitches.
However, the most unusual interior element of the new Flying Spur is the door trim of three-dimensional textured leather. The material was developed internally and is inspired by the concept of interior design of the EXP 100 GT concept.
