Bentley Flying Spur Beluga

The word "beluga" can refer to quite a number of things. It can be a type of watercraft or aircraft. It can likewise refer to a whale or sturgeon--the eggs of the latter are what's made into the revered caviar. But now, it also symbolizes a new variant of automobile: the Bentley Flying Spur Beluga.

The new Flying Spur Beluga edition draws from the already luxurious standard model, and adds a few touches that make it a bit more exclusive than its already elite regular version. Buyers who opt for the Beluga spec will have a host of exterior and interior upgrades that let the owner know he's just a bit more upper-crust than the other guy.

Once you arrive, people will immediately know you’re riding in a special Bentley, thanks to the gloss black radiator design with body-colored lower slat. Equally chic 20-inch machined alloy wheels enhance this look. It’s the kind of car that makes you look like a celebrity just by its mere presence.

Buying this car for the looks, however, is just part of the deal; another important part is what’s inside. The Beluga specification adds niceties such as knurled gear-shift paddles; the richest leather with contrast stitching on the seats, steering wheel and other surfaces; deep-pile carpeting for the floor and the cargo area; and piano-black woodgrain paneling.

If the Beluga Flying Spur isn’t snobbish enough for you, you can opt for the Mulliner Driving Package that upgrades the wheels to 21-inch Extrovert spec, as well as lining the cabin with stuff like an indented leather headliner, diamond-quilted cowhide, knurled gear lever, and drilled aluminum pedals.

Whether you go for the Beluga or the enhanced Mulliner Driving trim, the Flying Spur will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces a healthy 500hp. This allows the large sedan to blast from rest to 100kph in a sportscar-like 5.2 seconds.

The Bentley Flying Spur Beluga is available to order now worldwide, with units to be delivered later this year.
