Bentley imagines a Flying Spur sedan for Santa Claus.
Bentley has released renders of a special version of the Flying Spur V8 sedan. The Mulliner division prepared the novelty at the request of a “world-class star”, which plans to travel 65 million kilometres by the end of the year.
In honour of the eight deer of Santa Claus, the special version was named Reindeer Eight.
Outwardly, the fabulous Flying Spur highlights a dark red colour in the spirit of a Christmas tree toy, a gradient geometric pattern on the side parts, 22-inch gold wheels, a gold figurine of a deer on the hood printed on a 3D printer and a set of gold details on the body with the stripe on the hood, “gills” and special series emblems. The sedan also got several carbon aerodynamic components.
The salon is also made in a burgundy tone. The images of a winter night are applied to the front panel and door trim. The Flying Spur multimedia system contains a list of obedient children and mischievous people so that Santa does not get confused in the distribution of gifts.
The Bentley Reindeer Eight, based on the British brand’s Flying Spur, is luxurious on the outside as well as on the inside. The car for Santa boasts an exclusive Cricket Bauble color, diamond patterns on the body, a gold stripe at the front, a spoiler on the trunk and of course a gold deer figurine on the hood.
In addition, Bentley’s luxury car Santa has received 22-inch gold wheels and carbon fiber exterior parts. The “luxury” style continues in the interior of Reindeer Eight – gold contrasting stitching, the name of the fairy-tale character in the driver’s seat, a special version of the infotainment complex, reminiscent of the addresses of obedient guys waiting for Santa’s gifts for New Year and Christmas.
An original solution was introduced by the developers for the moment the engine starts – when the start button is activated, the ringing of a traditional sleigh with reindeer in a harness is heard.
Under the hood, the Bentley Reindeer Eight is equipped with a 4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 generating 542 “horses” at 770 Nm of torque. It takes 4 seconds for Santa’s car to accelerate to the first “hundred”, and it can reach a maximum speed of 318 km / h.
