The Bentley Flying B is a historic symbol of luxury automotive craftsmanship.

For a brand like Bentley, hood ornaments are quite important

Hood ornaments are one of the most undeniably classic symbols of automotive luxury, as they evoke the grandeur and craftsmanship of luxury cars of the past. Bentley, as a brand with a history of more than 100 years, is one of the few brands that still uses hood ornaments on their cars, and its current “Flying Bee” hood ornament is the sixth of the Bentley hood ornament. There is a race.

There is a level of craftsmanship involved in its creation that evokes the historical coach-building and artistic dedication, and although it is a simple and seemingly superfluous touch, the Bentley hood ornament is a symbol of the incredible level of luxury that Bentley is able to deliver.

Flying Bee accounts for 97 percent of all Flying Spurs ordered. Cast as a single piece of 316-grade stainless steel, the sign takes 11 weeks to complete from start to finish, after which it is installed with WCM Europe’s crystal acrylic wings, as well as LEDs. Which add luster to it when deployed. .

The Flying Bee has been a part of Bentley’s heritage since the 1920s, when it was a set of horizontal brass wings, to a smooth single wing in the 1930s, then to trailing wings in the 1970s. There was a long period in which prominent solid hood ornaments were banned for pedestrian protection, but they finally returned in 2006 with a retractable design for the Azure and Brooklands, and in 2019 , the current design took shape on the Flying Spur. With Flying Bee, a historic icon of luxury is still built with the craftsmanship of the past.
