Bentley unveils gorgeous 'Odyssean' Edition to celebrate the Flying Spur Hybrid
Spectacular exterior colour and no, it's not brown
This is the new Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition and I know what you're thinking and no, it isn't brown. It is actually painted with a blend of six 'curated exterior palettes harmonised' in a colour that Bentley calls a 'lower brightware' Pale Brodgar, in other words it is a darker version of Pale Brodgar, one of Bentley's available colours. Call it whatever you want but I still think it's beautiful, especially when you pair it with the 21-inch twin-spoke wheels in Pale Brodgar/gold.
The interior is just as elegant and lavish, with polar bear-friendly open-pore Koa veneer fascias, painted with just three ultra-thin layers of lacquer (only 0.1 mm in thickness), Piano Line for the centre console and leather seats with tweed inserts.
Customers can actually chosse between five different colours for the upholstery: Beluga, Porpoise, Cricketball, Brunel or Burnt Oak. Each car is fitted with a unique Odyssean Edition treadplate with matching D-pillar badging.
It is powered by a 2.9-litre V6 engine working in tandem with an electric unit, for a combined power output of 536 bhp and 553 lb-ft of torque and a range of 700 km (434 miles) on a tank of fuel, while also propelling the car from standstill to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds.
Apart from the Touring spec (Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist, Safeguard+, Night Vision and Head-Up Display), the new LED Welcome Lamps (they project the famous 'Bentley Wings' from all four doors), and the electrically deployed, illuminated Flying B bonnet mascot, the Odyssean is equipped with Bentley's Rotating Display, which means the infotainment screen disappears when it's not in use, replaced by a beautiful and simple panel with three analogue dials.
Bentley hasn't disclosed the price of the Odyssean Edition nor did it say how many of them it will produce but if you're in the market for a four-door luxury car, you should look no further.
