Bentley Mulliner has built a special “Reindeer Eight” Flying Spur V8.
BENTLEY REINDEER EIGHT: ONE SPECIAL SLEIGH
The car was commissioned by one “world famous customer” (Bentley’s own words). The car is is finished in a deep red Cricket Bauble paint, one of the 62 shades offered by Bentley’s Extended Range.
The 542bhp on offer in the Flying Spur also offers the special customer a small power upgrade from his usual eight.
A gold three-dimensional printed reindeer also takes the place of the Flying B mascot on the Bentley Reindeer Eight, while the regular V8 badges have been replaced by a special “Reindeer Eight” badge.
The Bentley Reindeer Eight also has the gold styling specified, adding a carbon diffuser to the front and rear bumper, carbon side sills and a boot lid spoiler for maximum aerodynamic performance at cruising altitude.
The bonnet strip and 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels are also finished in gold.
In the cabin, a monotone Cricket Bauble interior with gold personalised embroidery and hand cross-stitching has been specified. The world famous customer has also opted to have his name stitched into the driver’s seat and that of his wife’s alongside.
The Grand Black veneer across the Bentley Reindeer Eight also displays a North Pole winter night scene with inlays to depict the end of the night’s journey.
COMFORT FOR A LONG JOURNEY
The seats of the Bentley Reindeer Eight also feature a twin-flute design and increased functionality, including heating, ventilation, multi-mode massage, adjustable bolsters and top tilt. Handy for completing an intercontinental trip within one evening.
A Naughty and Nice list has also been integrated in to the navigation system.
Three elegant analogue dials on the other face of the rotating 12.3-inch display meanwhile show the outside temperature, a compass (vital for the customer to find home at the end of the long work night) and a chronometer.
