Inspired by the sport of kings: the Bentayga by Mulliner

Bentley will celebrate its continuing partnership with The Jockey Club at the Cheltenham Festival this month (13-16 March), with a one-off commission of its luxury #suv – the #bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The FestivalTM. Drawing on the Jockey Club’s rich history, its Royal connections and fine art pieces, Bentley’s personal commissioning division, Mulliner, has designed a car celebrating the two brands’ partnership, based on British luxury and racing heritage.

Uday Senapati, Mulliner’s Head of Technical Operations, comments: “The Cheltenham Festival is widely recognised 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.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.”

Mulliner Design Story

The #bentayga by Mulliner takes inspiration from the world of equestrian sport, with hints to the performance and heritage associated with #bentley. 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.
