If you like all things equestrian, you are going to love this new Bentley. The latest Bentayga by Mulliner is a one-of-a-kind ride that celebrates the company’s long partnership with The Jockey Club. Bentley says the special luxury SUV will be presented at the Cheltenham Festival in the U.K. later this month.
“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 Uday Senapati, Mulliner’s technical operations head, in a release. “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.”
The Bentayga by Mulliner receives a beautiful coat of Spruce green paint with black accents on its exterior and rolls on sporty 21-inch black diamond-turned wheels.
It looks even better on the inside, which receives a Cumbrian Green and Saddle brown leather combination with tweed flourishes. The wood veneer on the passenger side of the dashboard gets a gold horse and jockey emblem that resembles the one embroidered in the seats in Saddle and Cognac thread.
The doors and seats receive a light blue contrast stitching and quilting, and Mulliner says that the veneers are made from Burr Walnut and created using “a straight grained ‘picture frame’ cross-banding technique, which echoes some of the magnificent antique furniture in The Jockey Club’s private rooms.”
The Bentayga by Mulliner can be seen at this year’s Cheltenham Festival, which is held from March 13-16.
