Making millions of children happy on Christmas isn't an easy job for Santa and Bentley is making sure that Mr. Claus arrives in style and in utmost comfort in his chariot. What we are talking about here is Bentley's new Flying Spur Reindeer Eight that's been designed in Christmas theme and is painted in a special shade which takes inspiration from the cricket ball's colour which is a part of Bentley's range of hues. The lower part of the body is finished in a diamond like pattern painted in grey. Then side sills, lip spoiler on the boot and the rear diffuser are made of carbon fibre.
There are plenty of gold-finished elements too on this one off Flying Spur. For instance, there is a gold strip centre line running down the hood and connects with the 3D printed gold ornament of a prancing reindeer. Then the 22-inch alloy wheels and the bumper diffuser on the approach angle too are finished in gold colour and you get similar treatment along the profile. On the inside too you get to see the same cricket ball inspired theme with gold contrast stitching, while 'Mr. Claus' also has his name embossed in gold on the front headrests. And then the list of naughty and nice kids is displayed on the infotainment screen to help Santa deliver gifts to the right boys and girls. But the coolest feature of all has to be the sleigh bell ring at every crank-start.
Now the Bentley Flying Spur already has a powerful 4.0-litre V8 motor under its hood which Bentley thinks is enough to do duty for Santa's chariot. The engine makes 535 bhp and 770 Nm of peak torque and does a triple digit run in just over 4.0 seconds while the top-speed is marked at 318 kmph.

Bentley Motors has successfully manufactured the 40,000th unit of its popular luxury sports sedan, Bentley Flying Spur from its Crewe plant. Currently, in its third generation, the sedan was originally christened as the Continental Flying Spur, and later it was renamed as Flying Spur to distinguish the car from the Continental GT. Notably, all three generations of the Flying Spur have been designed, engineered, developed and manufactured at Bentley's home in Crewe. Each one of the 40,000 cars manufactured has spent more than 100 hours on the production line where a 250-strong team assemble each Flying Spur by hand.
