Bentley Bentayga By Mulliner Is Inspired By Equestrian

While it’s not the mystery model promised for the Geneva Motor Show, this Bentley Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival, is quite special in its own right.

Unveiled before its global premiere at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival in two weeks, the Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival (yes, that’s the full name), is a one-off design that celebrates Bentley‘s long-standing partnership with The Jockey Club.

Bentley designers looked to the sport of equestrian when producing this bespoke Bentayga, fittingly painting it in Spruce, a modern take on the famous British Racing Green. Elsewhere, the SUV has been outfitted with the Blackline Specification and a set of 21-inch diamond-turned and black painted wheels.

Custom touches also feature prominently in the cabin. For example, Cumbrian Green and Saddle leather is present alongside blue contrasting stitching on the door and seat quilting. Also featured is Bentley’s Burr Walnut veneer with the so-called ‘picture frame’ cross-banding. A golden horse graphic has also been incorporated into the passenger veneer panel, while each seat features an embroidered horse and jockey emblem.

“The Cheltenham Festival is widely recognized as one of the finest horseracing events in the world, and The Festival’s unique sense of occasion is a perfect showcase for the world’s most exclusive SUV, the Bentayga,” said Mulliner’s head of Technical Operations Uday Senapati.

“The Mulliner team has been deeply inspired by the equestrian lifestyle, and this has encouraged us to use new materials and techniques for the first time on a Bentley in developing this one-off commission.”
