Bentley Flying Spur Decadence: a unique pickup version

Bentley Flying Spur Decadence a unique pickup version

DC Customs took on the Bentley Flying Spur and turned it into a luxurious pickup, dubbed Decadence.

Bentley took another unprecedented step when it decided to market in 2015 its first SUV, the Bentayga, going well beyond the luxury sedans, coupes, and convertibles usually made by the British firm.

So, why not a pickup? It was a crazy idea that a wealthy British owner of a Flying Spur had.

For this, he called on DC Customs, an English company located not far from Birmingham and specializing in the restoration of classic models and the preparation of fully personalized cars.

This Bentley Flying Spur Decadence does not go unnoticed.

Initially, the Bentley Flying Spur was a large four-door sedan: for this project called “Decadence,” They utterly transformed the rear part.

The two rear doors have disappeared, and a large tipper has replaced the welcoming rear seats and the trunk.

The car was made with a luxurious wood veneer, made like the floor of a luxury yacht.

This new space perfectly complements the interior of the vehicle, covered in two-tone caramel leather, contrasting with a brown carpet and noble wood inserts.

The exterior styling is also eye-catching, with two-tone paintwork combining a deep purple with a metallic gray that can find on the hood and the front grille, not to mention the “Decadence” badges.

DC Customs did not specify its price, nor how many hours were necessary to carry out this crazy project.

But that made this unique example of running on the road, and that its happy owner will therefore drive it…
