Bentley’s bespoke and personal commissioning division, Mulliner, has upgraded Santa’s flying sleigh to something a little more luxurious – a unique, festive Flying Spur V8 called the Reindeer Eight.
The one-off Reindeer Eight is finished to the exterior in deep red Cricket Bauble paint finish, a unique color created for the customer based on Cricket Ball which is available as one of the 62 shades offered by the Extended Range.
A gold three-dimensional printed reindeer is affixed to the car, and to the sides, the V8 badges have been replaced by a special ‘Reindeer Eight’. The standard chrome hood strip has been re-trimmed in gold, and coordinating hand painted fine line details shine from the rear of the Bentley wing badges. To indicate the speed and performance required to cover the significant distance by the owner, a gold styling specification has been included, comprising of a carbon diffuser to the front and rear bumper, carbon side sills, and a boot lid spoiler. The Mulliner Driving Specification with 22” golden wheels and diamond finish, representing the snow peaks crossed, completes the exterior theme.
The Reindeer Eight features a monotone Cricket Bauble interior with gold personalized embroidery and hand cross-stitching, including the owner’s name stitched into the driver’s seat and that of his wife alongside. A sweeping horizontal veneer flows across the dashboard and into the doors. The Grand Black veneer displays a North Pole winter night scene with inlays to fascias and door waist rails to depict the end of the night’s journey.
The seats of the Reindeer Eight feature a twin-flute design and increased functionality, including heating, ventilation, multi-mode massage, adjustable bolsters and top tilt which should keep the customer alert yet relaxed over the extensive mileage that he will be covering.
The industry-first Bentley Rotating Display features in the Reindeer Eight. The veneer section in the middle of the dashboard rotates to reveal a 12.3-inch touchscreen, displaying multiple menus. A Naughty and Nice list integrated into the navigation system, while the second side of the display reveals three elegant analog dials showing outside temperature, a compass, and a chronometer. The third side offers the seamless Grand Black veneer fascia, representing the North Pole winter night scene.
