After intimately collaborating with Mulliner over a few months, our idea to create something truly unique, something that aligned with the Holman Motorcars strategy, and South Florida’s iconic geography and lifestyle began. The end result is a yacht inspired Mulliner Limited Edition and the result is absolutely breath-taking. This timeless classic further highlights the infinite possibilities and abilities in which to blend art and technology into a unique emotion and experience,” shared Holman Automotive Vice President and Bentley Fort Lauderdale General Manager Peter Brandt.

For the interior of the Flying Spur Miami Edition, the cabin was given a striking two-tone paint-matched piano veneer.
