Why not you?

The 2022 Bentley Flying Spur Mulliner represents the pinnacle in automotive luxury and an unprecedented blend of craftsmanship and performance. Created by Mulliner, Bentley’s personal commissioning division, the Flying Spur Mulliner incorporates details and design touches that few people have even thought of:

As you approach the car, welcome lighting illuminates your path; once inside, the cabin displays the ambiance of your choice thanks to Bentley’s Mood Lighting Specification. Sports pedals and deep pile Mulliner overmats are at your feet, while a panoramic roof is set into the smooth leather headliner. Two heated and cooled seats with massage functions occupy the rear, and electrically deployed picnic tables with chrome inlays are fitted to the backs of the front seats.

Made entirely by hand, the Flying Spur Mulliner’s interior features a tri-tone color split, a diamond-milled finish center console and an all-new LED driver’s console. The luxurious Diamond-in-Diamond interior quilting involves an embroidery process that alone took 18 months to develop. Each diamond contains precisely 712 individual stitches, aligned to the exact center of the diamond it creates.

Elegant as it is, performance hasn’t been sacrificed to design in the 2022 Flying Spur Mulliner. The sedan comes equipped with Bentley’s signature six-liter, twin-turbocharged W-12 powertrain, capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 207 mph. Bentley Dynamic Ride, an anti-roll system, keeps the ride level steady while cornering and a cutting-edge four-wheel steering system makes the drive effortless at any speed.

Talk about bragging rights: The lucky winning bidder on this lot will have the very first 2022 Flying Spur Mulliner to reach North America, available to drive away on Auction Day.

This exceptional, one-of-a-kind vehicle is just the beginning of this amazing lot. The winning bidder will be the very first person to experience a one-of-a-kind trip that is a collaboration between Bentley and The Macallan. Start off with Business Class Airfare and arrive in style, being met at the airplane by a private car and escorted to your own waiting area, having refreshments while a representative takes care of the hassles of customs on your behalf.

Your U.K. journey will begin at Carden Park in Cheshire, a 1,000-acre luxury estate which has been called “the ultimate expression of escapism.” Cheshire will serve as the base for your visit to the Bentley factory at Crewe, where 4,000 dedicated employees fuel the vision founded by W.O. Bentley in 1919. At Crewe, you’ll experience firsthand the care and passion that goes into the making of each and every Bentley.

The next three days will be spent touring the English countryside in a unique blend of driving experiences and culinary immersion. You’ll stay at boutique accommodations in Berkshire and North Yorkshire and participate in foraging, cooking classes and stargazing as well as their unique “Dine on the Line” and “Proms in the Park” programs.

Speaking of dreams coming true: It’s time to cross the border into Scotland and head for the village of Craigellachie, where you’ll have a close-up experience at The Macallan distillery. For a whisky lover, this is the equivalent of going to Heaven.

Founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and schoolteacher, The Macallan is located on a plateau above the River Spey in northeast Scotland. From humble beginnings in a barn with two small stills, it has grown into one of the most distinctive and sought-after whiskies in the world. In 2019, a bottle of Macallan 1826 set an auction record with a price of $1.9 million.

Much of The Macallan’s popularity is traceable to the characteristics of Speyside malts. They tend to be lighter and softer than whisky from other regions, with low levels of peat and classic flavors of honey, vanilla and ripe green fruits. The Macallan works closely with “acorn to cask” companies in Spain to procure the seasoned casks that are part of the whisky’s secret; no coloring additives are used, and copper stills turn out small batches of spirit at a time.

When you arrive at The Macallan Estate, lunch will be followed by a private distillery tour that will illuminate the step-by-step process by which the whisky is made. The tour will be followed by a special dining experience that evening. The next morning, you’ll have a chauffeured drive around Speyside, to admire the wild and stunning landscape of the countryside, followed by lunch at the distillery or a picnic on the banks of the River Spey. You’ll have a tour of the 485-acre estate including the Easter Elchies House, originally built in 1700 by Captain John Grant.

Throughout this trip, you will be treated like royalty and experience both the Bentley factory and The Macallan Estate in a way that could never be purchased or duplicated.

It’s time to make your dreams come true: all it takes is the right bid!
