With new, sustainable materials and a hybrid drivetrain, the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean edition is a showcase of what future Bentleys will look like.

Bentley has revealed a new limited edition Flying Spur Hybrid.

The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition takes its inspiration from the EXP 100 GT concept car, and is said to be the first step in Bentley's journey to introduce new sustainable materials as part of its Beyond100 strategy.

The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition not only uses an advanced hybrid powertrain delivering a combined power of 536bhp and 750Nm of torque, giving away little to the Flying Spur V8 in acceleration. This output will allow the Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition to hit 100km/h from a standstill in just 4.3 seconds.

The Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition also includes new and sustainable materials throughout its cabin.

These includes beautifully crafted tweed made from 100% British wool, twisting a blend of tonal colours into a bespoke yarn to create a unique natural luxury textile especially for Bentley.

Open pore Koa veneer fascias and waistrails also use 90% less lacquer than high-gloss veneers, and allow the natural surface texture and aesthetic of the wood to be enjoyed. Selected from only the very best, most figured stock available, open-pore veneer is painted with just three ultra-thin layers of lacquer, together totalling only 0.1mm in thickness.

The centre console of the cabin is also is finished in a sleek, minimalist Piano Linen veneer, while a dedicated three-colour leather scheme lends the whole interior new depth. Together with new materials, sustainable leather is used widely across the cabin, thanks to its long-term durability.

Accents to the interior are in a soft, warm hide called Autumn, with customers able to choose from five specifications that utilise Beluga, Porpoise, Cricketball, Brunel or Burnt Oak leather in tandem with light, modern Linen hide.

A unique Odyssean Edition treadplate becomes apparent when entering or exiting the car, and is matched with exterior D-pillar badging.

To the exterior, painted Pale Brodgar accents on 21-inch ten twin-spoke wheels feature. The limited edition car also gets lower brightware (front and rear bumpers, headlight and tail light surrounds and lower body side chrome) for a more serene exterior character. A curated exterior palette of six colours have been recommended to harmonise with the Pale Brodgar accents, but the full Bentley palette can be chosen from.
