There were almost too many things to pinpoint from this past weekend’s events at Art Basel Miami, with one of the most stunning showcases being a collaboration between Bentley and (oddly enough) The Shoe Surgeon, a world-famous sneaker customizer that has shown off just how versatile he is. By wheeling out a bespoke take on the Flying Spur Hybrid, Bentley and Ciambrone (The Surgeon’s actual name) have made the model look as sleek as ever.
Finished in a brooding two-tone palette of Anthracite and Anthracite Satin, the gorgeous custom job is accentuated by shining satin bronze pinstripe motifs around the wheel. Moving onto its thoughtfully-deisnged bespoke interior, which features custom stitching, embroidery, and similar Satin Bronze accents that appear throughout the car. Additionally, it boasts an eye-catching, diamond-patterned walnut panel in the rear doors to add a three-dimensional effect.
On top of this luxurious design language, the car features dual-finish wood veneers and a laser-etched skull, the latter of which is The Shoe Surgeon’s signature logo, which is finished off in a shade of Gloss White pinstriping. And while this magnificent car is impressive enough, it wouldn’t be suitable for the shoemaker to customize an entire automobile without a pair of shoes to match the joint effort. That said, whoever purchases the luxurious, monochromatic model will receive a custom pair of Bentley x The Surgeon adidas Forum Lows.
Bentley’s collaborative black-and-bronze Flying Spur with The Surgeon will be auctioned off in early 2023, alongside a pair of other custom vehicles. Learn more about the British marque’s Miami showcase on its website.
