Bentley, in collaboration with British design company, Linley, has announced a special edition Continental Flying Spur limited to only 10 units. The model will be sold in China where large four-door models are the most successful.

The special edition Continental Flying Spur Linley features a special rose-wood applied to the fascia, center console, waistrail, and roof console. The veneers cover the entire wood surfaces of the model, where Bentley chestnut or walnut would normally be used.

A unique Linley Helix motif has been taken from the distinctive Linley Helix Furniture Collection and is being used on the waist-rails and picnic table of the Flying Spurs. The Helix pattern is made up of four different types of veneer which contrast with the Santos rosewood to show the wave effect delivered by the marquetry. In addition, the rear console is being modified for a customer-commissioned Linley humidor.

Brett Boydell, senior designer at Bentley, says: "A special box has been designed by Linley which drops into a unique console. We have reconfigured the console so that the box can fit in, moving things around and creating a space. It was an engineering feat to meet the quality requirements of a Bentley and the design cues of Linley."

UPDATE 10/02/11: Bentley has officially unveiled the China-exclusive Continental Flying Spur Linley Limited Edition. Check out the new photos from the unveiling in the gallery!

The interior of this Continental is absolutely looks great and luxurious with its features and as for the exterior of it, I think they should use a lighter body paint on this vehicle.

I’m so satisfied with its very comfortable and luxurious interior! However, I also noticed that it is not really very impressive on is boy paint, it is much better if they use another striking color than that.

I just only love its luxurious and very cozy and comfortable interior but as for the exterior looks of it, I must say that it is looks so boring on that body paint.

Totally a bizarre and commendable luxury car. Very rich and quality car. Totally outstanding to other cars. I want to see this with red version that would look hot.
