Bentley claims its latest Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition is a glimpse into the automaker’s vision for the future. Similar to the unforgettable Bentley EXP 100 GT concept car presented in 2019, the Odyssean Flying Spur Hybrid is a showcase for innovative sustainable materials without compromising on style and luxury.

For example, the cabin has a high-quality tweed material made from 100 percent British wool, while the wooden surfaces are made of open-pored Koa veneers, which have 90 percent less lacquer than high-gloss applications. Each wood panel is treated with three ultra-thin layers of clear lacquer (no thicker than 0.1 mm) in order to “enjoy the natural surface and aesthetics of the wood,” added Bentley.

In the meantime, sustainable leather upholstery has also become standard, which, according to Bentley, offers long-term durability than other cowhide materials. It also comes in many hues such as fall, beluga, porpoise, cricket ball, burnt oak, and brunel. Other tailor-made accents include piano linen veneer on the center console, tailor-made Odyssean Edition door sills, deep-pile carpeting and individual D-pillar badges.

The Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition rides on beautiful 21-inch double-spoke wheels with Pale Brodgar accents. In addition, the front and rear bumpers, headlight and taillight surrounds, and the lower body are all finished with Pale Brodgar accents to give the vehicle’s distinctive silhouette a sense of old-school modernity and luxury.

The hybrid system consists of a single electric motor and a small 14.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. What remains under the hood is a 2.9-liter V6 engine with twin-scroll turbochargers that pump 410 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. It’s essentially the same plug-in hybrid power unit in Bentley’s Bentayga Hybrid, but the Flying Spur Hybrid has more power than the former.

With an electric motor delivering an additional 134 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, the Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid has no less than 536 horsepower and up to 553 pound-feet of torque to play with, 93 more horses than the Bentayga Hybrid. And despite its size and weight, it goes from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. The top speed is 177 mph.

You can enjoy emission-free driving for 25 miles before the battery runs out in the standard all-electric driving mode. But with a fully charged battery and a full gas tank, the Flying Spur Hybrid has a combined WLTP range of around 735 miles, making it potentially Bentley’s greenest luxury car until the automaker’s first all-electric car debuts somewhere around 2025.

The Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid Odyssean Edition is also available as a touring model with adaptive cruise control, lane assistant, night vision and heads-up display. No information on pricing or production numbers yet, but a standard Flying Spur Hybrid starts at just over $ 204,000.
