Is this the most complex Bentley interior yet?

With the new Flying Spur, Bentley has pulled out all of the innovative stops with a handcrafted interior, presenting one of the car manufacturer’s most sophisticated and luxuriously stitched cabin. Each cabin is stitched together with over three kilometres of thread.

All leather hides found in the interior of the Flying Spur are sustainably sourced from Northern European bulls, entirely as by-products of the meat industry. The more temperate climate zones ensure there are fewer parasites and the leather remains naturally blemish-free. Bentley customers have the luxury of choosing from as many as 14 interior leather hide colours.
