Bentley’s future isn’t as shiny as its previous — at the very least once we’re speaking about exterior trim. The blacked-out Blackline Specification package deal that the agency launched on the Continental GT earlier in 2022 has been so widespread that it is now out there on the Flying Spur Mulliner.
Unveiled on the sidelines of Monterey Automobile Week, the Flying Spur Mulliner Blackline Specification ditches practically each piece of shiny exterior trim. Designers changed the chrome bits with gloss black trim and painted the door mirror caps in Beluga Black. The grille and the Winged B hood decoration hold a few of their shiny accents, and patrons can order black 22-inch wheels with polished pockets at an additional price.
Bentley left the inside untouched, that means patrons can configure it to their liking. And, there are not any mechanical modifications: The Blackline Specification package deal is obtainable on the hybrid-, V8-, and W12-powered variants of the Flying Spur Mulliner. In its quickest configuration, that means with a twin-turbocharged, 626-horsepower 12-cylinder beneath the hood, the massive sedan hits 60 mph from a cease in 3.7 seconds.
Pricing for the Blackline Specification package deal hasn’t been introduced. We’re guessing it isn’t low cost, however that is unlikely to discourage patrons: Bentley introduced that almost 20% of Continental GT Mulliner patrons have ticked the Blackline Specification field since its introduction.
On the different finish of the Mulliner spectrum, the limited-edition Batur coupe is scheduled to make its debut throughout Monterey Automobile Week as properly.
