And the standard Bentley Bentayga is one of the current most luxurious crossovers on the market, and soon this brand will present an exclusive version called Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival.
The premier will be in less than two weeks at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival (prestigious horse race), and was made on the occasion of a long-standing partnership with The Jockey Club.
The exterior, in lustrous Spruce, is a modern take on British Racing Green, and has been accented with the Blackline Specification and 21” diamond-turned and black painted wheels, to make the car appear equally at home in either town or country. Inside, a bespoke tweed works harmoniously with Cumbrian Green and Saddle leather hues, and a unique colour split alludes to the car’s performance potential while keeping a sophisticated look.
To accent the tweed, Mulliner has used a light blue contrast stitch to the door and seat quilting. The veneer species is Burr Walnut finished with a straight grained ‘picture frame’ cross-banding technique, which echoes some of the magnificent antique furniture in The Jockey Club’s private rooms. The passenger veneer panel is finished with a gold horse graphic to add jewellery-like detail, and each seat features an intricately embroidered horse and jockey emblem created with a Saddle and Cognac thread for added tactile detail.
The car is powered by 6.0 liter W12 petrol engine with 600 hp and 900 Nm, enough for a maximum of 301 km/h and acceleration up to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.
