Bentley has dropped yet another teaser of its upcoming third-generation Flying Spur, this time showing us a specific section of the grand tourer’s interior – the front door card design.

What you see is an automotive world-first – a three-dimensional, textured leather upholstery. The new material was developed by the team of craftsman and women based in Crewe, and is apparently just one of many new, advanced features and technologies that Bentley will introduce with the new Flying Spur.

Besides that, the automaker says the new car is built from the ground up, and will offer segment-defining levels of performance and refinement. It will also push the boundaries of technology and craftsmanship, all to deliver an unparalleled touring experience for driver and passengers.

Previously, Bentley gave us a basic sketch of the grand tourer, revealing a familiar body style with highlighted character lines. The sketch reveals a long bonnet and rear overhang, as well as a slight kink on the tailgate. These cues are also seen in numerous spyshots of the Flying Spur, with strong ties to the Continental GT from the front. The rest of the exterior takes on a more evolutionary step from the previous generation, though it won’t be anything but regal.

For engines, the Flying Spur should be offered with a 6.0 litre twin-turbo W12 engine that is also used in the Continental GT and Bentayga. A slightly less powerful V8 petrol will also be available, as well as a 3.0 litre plug-in hybrid V6 petrol that is shared with the Bentayga and Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid.
