Bentley Shows Off Custom Flying Spur Hybrid in Miami
This special Bentley Flying Spur is a collaboration between luxury automaker Bentley, and custom shoemaker Dominic Ciambrone (The Surgeon), and comes directly after the pair released 10 sneakers, each based on a Bentley livery.The Flying Spur Hybrid ‘Surgeon’ car is one of three Bentley Artwork vehicles being shown at the Art Basel in Miami over the weekend, with a Continental GT Speed Convertible and Continental GT V8 Convertible also being displayed. Bentley was tightlipped on price, though it is likely this version will top the standard Flying Spur Hybrid’s $217,525 starting price in a private sale.
If you ask us, buying a Bentley is all about flexing the depth of your wallet and the bounds of your creativity. For those with that kind of coin who prefer to rely on the taste of others, Bentley has a solution in the form of this one-off Flying Spur Hybrid. The car is a collaboration effort between the automaker and custom shoemaker Dominic Ciambrone, more commonly referred to as “The Surgeon.”
Car and Driver
From the exterior, the special Flying Spur could be mistaken for any other NBA-star-carrying luxury machine. It wears dual-tone Anthracite over Anthracite Satin black paints, which are accented by Satin Bronze pinstriping and piping. The result shows off a glittering finish from the combination of matte and metallic paints. It’s an attractive but muted look for a car that otherwise carries so much presence on the road.
The interior of the bespoke vehicle is where the Surgeon really made his mark. Quite literally. His personal Jolly Roger–esque logo along with branding of the word “Surgeon” are visible throughout the cabin. The interior seems perfect if you are a fan of pirate logos, or perhaps made a fortune performing medical procedures and need constant reminders of your career.
Car and Driver
Bentley remained silent on the price of this bespoke Flying Spur, but we would expect it to range somewhere north of the standard Flying Spur Hybrid’s $217,525 starting price in a private sale. On the upside, the owner of the car will also receive a pair of limited-edition Bentley/Surgeon Adidas Forum Low sneakers along with the car.
