British car manufacturer Bentley is known for fitting their vehicles with only the best of the best, and their newest trim is no exception. Launched today in the all-new Flying Spur, Bentley is now offering a new Three-Dimensional Wood rear door trim for the first time.
The Three-Dimensional Wood pattern is an eye-catching diamond-shaped design accentuated with a three-dimensional surface finish that’s etched directly into the wood.
The new trim option is one of the unique veneer choices from the Bentley Mulliner ‘Collections’ and forms a contemporary luxury design statement, bringing “tactility” to the natural beauty of wood. Each rear door and quarter panel is meticulously handcrafted from a single block of sustainable American Walnut or American Cherry timber, creating a design element that’s as luxurious as everything else in the interior.
In order to achieve the distinct three-dimensional surface, operators carve the wood with a multi-axis routing machine to a tolerance of 0.1mm, less than the thickness of a human hair. After this, they then proceed to hand-finish the cuts for perfect results.
An open-pore lacquer is then applied to the surface, allowing the natural color and texture of the wood to shine through.
“Three-Dimensional Wood is the next interior design element we’ve taken from concept car idea to production reality. It works in perfect harmony with the three-dimensional leather quilting across the cabin of the Flying Spur and creates an even more special environment for those being driven,” shares Brett Boydell, Bentley’s Head of Interior Design for the Flying Spur.
“The principle of milling a geometric three-dimensional diamond form into solid wood was so well received at Geneva, it confirmed the value in translating the concept into reality for the customers of Bentley’s all-new Flying Spur.”
The Bentley Flying Spur is available in the Philippines, starting at Php 13.2 million. It comes standard with a W12 engine that makes 616 hp and 800 Nm of torque. It can go from a complete standstill to 100 kmh in just 4.6 seconds and can reach top speeds of up to 320 kmh.
