Pinnacle Flying Spur variant unveiled in Monterey

Bentley shows range topping Mulliner Blackline Specification ahead of Batur EV

22 Aug 2022

BENTLEY has revealed its range topping Flying Spur Mulliner Blackline Specification at the prestigious Monterey Car Week in California. The model arrives a week ahead of the Mulliner Batur – a vehicle Bentley says will preview the “themes and forms” of its forthcoming all-electric range.


The Flying Spur Mulliner Blackline Specification, which Bentley says combines the very finest modern craftsmanship with breath-taking luxury, builds on the increasing popularity of the GT Mulliner Blackline, with an uptake of nearly 20 per cent.


All Mulliner models are now offered with contemporary external treatments in lieu of chrome brightwork.


The Flying Spur Mulliner Blackline Specification replaces all the exterior bright ware (excluding the Bentley ‘Winged B’ badge) for gloss black versions. In place of the satin silver upper mirror caps typical of a Flying Spur Mulliner, for the Blackline Specification the mirrors are finished in gloss Beluga black.


The model’s signature Mulliner matrix wing vents are also blackened and finished with bright Mulliner branding while the radiator grille remains black with bright edges to the 3D design and the lower bumper grilles are also finished in black.


Optionally, the Blackline Specification is available with 22-inch wheels finished in black with contrasting polished ‘pockets’ or alternatively with a 22-inch gloss black wheel design with self-levelling badges and chrome rings.


Bentley says the new specification Mulliner allows customers to personalise their vehicle with “further visual contrast with lighter exterior palettes or to elegantly blend in with darker colour choices”.


Inside, the luxurious interior is unchanged from the derivative Mulliner Edition, instead allowing customers to select any colour combination they choose as part of Mulliner’s limitless offering – or one of eight recommended three-colour combinations using Bentley’s wide palette of hides and threads.


The Flying Spur Mulliner Blackline Specification is available with Bentley’s V8 and W12 powertrains, as well as the new V6 Hybrid. When equipped with Bentley’s 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12, the Flying Spur Mulliner accelerates from 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds (0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds) and is capable of a top speed of 207mph (333km/h).


Meanwhile, the new generation 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 delivers a top speed of 198mph (318km/h) and a 0-60mph time of 4.0 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds) while the new V6 Hybrid accelerates from 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.3 seconds) with a top speed of 177mph (285km/h).
