$10,000 Bentley skis take ultra-premium to dizzying new altitudes

Bentley, which, it's fair to say, already dominates the ballers-and-Bond-villains end of the super-luxury market, extends the franchise with this latest release – a pair of limited-edition designer skis priced at over $10,000. The skis, designed and built by top Swiss ski brand zai AG, launched recently at the Geneva Motor Show, alongside the new Flying Spur.

New Flying Spur is fastest Bentley ever made

As with the entire Bentley range, the new Flying Spur is built to individual customers’ exacting specifications. A range of seventeen standard exterior paint colours includes Dark Cashmere, a sophisticated and contemporary addition to the Bentley palette. The extended paint range of over 100 colours is joined by Damson, a rich hue inspired by the extremely rare purple diamond, and one that is complemented by an optional matching hide colour.

The exterior design, manufacturing processes and carefully optimised materials selections combine to provide a bodyshell that is not only muscular and clean, with minimal shutlines, but also one that performs exceptionally well on the road. With a torsional stiffness of 36,500 Nm/degree, a 4% increase over the previous generation Flying Spur, the new bodyshell provides an extremely rigid platform for the chassis components and a stable foundation for NVH reduction.
