Bentley continues its centenary celebrations by unveiling two special edition versions of the Bentayga. The new Businessman and Sportsman editions have been created by the Mulliner division and Savile Row tailor Huntsman respectively, and can be found in the showroom of Jack Barclay, the automaker’s oldest retailer.
The Bentayga Sportsman wears a Candy Red shade on the outside, over an Imperial Blue leather interior with Liquid Amber veneer inserts, and features pronounced tweed accents. The model is said to have been inspired by “relaxed countryside pursuits”, and is so British that you can almost hear its accent.
In contrast to the Sportsman, the Bentayga Businessman is finished in deep black Anthracite and Anthracite Satin, and brings carbon fiber fascias and waistrails. Tweed is also a defining feature of this special edition, which also features the Huntsman and Jack Barclay logos embroidered into the seat rests.
Furthermore, the Bentayga Businessman comes with a bespoke Mulliner chessboard in the rear seat rest, along with a drawer trimmed in Huntsman fabric that houses the chess pieces. The chessboard mimics the retailer’s chequerboard floor.
“Bentley is delighted to bring together two brands, which have such an impeccable heritage, in the heart of London – Jack Barclay and Huntsman”, said the auto firm’s Director of Design and Mulliner, Stefan Sielaff. “The personalization work we do at Mulliner is about bringing a vision to life – like creating a perfect tailored suit – so, adding an element of bespoke Huntsman material to the Bentayga’s lavish and beautiful interior is a perfect fit.”
Those who buy a Huntsman edition of the Bentayga will receive a Huntsman bespoke jacket, with a lining made exclusively for Bentley. They will also get to select between different cloths and tweeds for the garment.
