Bentley will install an emblem designed over 100 years ago on its cars! The first to receive it was the new Flying Spur.

On the hood of the third-generation Flying Spur model, a special figurine flaunts. The new design symbolizes the future development of the company. The emblem also adorns the EXP 100 GT concept car.

The vertical letter “B” with wings was introduced about 90 years ago on the 8th Liter in 1930. At that time, the figurine was not the basic equipment of the car, it was installed as an additional option, and quite expensive – its cost was within 5 guineas (English gold coins).

U.O. Bentley, the founder of Bentley, showed the logo back in 1919. From that moment, a little over a hundred years have passed and now it has been re-introduced. It was developed by Charles Sykes and was later a must have attribute on many Bentley cars.

Its design is still slightly updated, and in the new Bentley Flying Spur the figurine is equipped with a backlight and an electric drive. It is consistent with the keyless entry function and welcome lighting (when the owner approaches the car, the light turns on).
