Bentley Bentayga SUV has finally received the Mulliner treatment and it has resulted in the creation of a new flagship model. Just so you know, Mulliner is Bentley’s in-house personal commissioning division. The Bentley Bentayga Mulliner would be produced in very limited numbers, while it would be available to order in Spring 2017 in UK. A special one-off example of the Bentayga Mulliner will be on the Bentley stand at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show next week. Mechanically, it carries the same 6.0L W12 engine which churns out 600bhp of top power and 900Nm of peak torque.
This new model introduces striking optional Duo Tone paintwork for the first time on Bentayga. Dual Tone paintwork will be available across the Bentayga range from April. The new Mulliner 22” Paragon seven-spoke wheels with floating wheel centres, unique exterior badge, and the addition as standard of body-coloured lower bodywork and bright chromed lower bumper grilles, complete the exterior enhancements. A new Mulliner designed interior colour split – with the front and rear seats finished in different hide colours and offered in seven suggested colour ways – complements the optional Duo Tone exterior paintwork. The hand-stitched hides are finishedwith unique Mulliner embroidery and contrast stitching. For those asking, Bentley Bentayga SUV does a 0-100kmph sprint in just 4.1 seconds, while clocking a top speed of 301kmph.
The additional features inside the cabin inlcude a new Mulliner Bottle Cooler in the rear of the cabin, featuring an illuminated chilling cabinet and bespoke Cumbria Crystal flutes which integrates into rear centre console. Ombré Burr Walnut Veneer is exclusively introduced to the Bentayga Mulliner model. This showcases a unique wood transition from Black through to Burr Walnut as the veneer wraps around the interior and a special veneered panel replaces the standard central console fascia. The mood lighting feature, comprising six different ‘moods’, together with illuminated Mulliner tread plates and Bentley LED Welcome Lamps is on offer. In addition, the British ultra-luxury marquee has introduced ‘My Mood’ feature, which allows occupants to choose from 15 different colours, while also adjusting the brightness in doors, armrests and footwells.
As for the music lovers, Mulliner is offering the Naim for Bentley Audio system in the SUV, which is the most powerful and highest quality audio system in the class. It features 20 speakers driven by a 1,950-watt, 21-channel amplifier. Moreover, a remote-controlled Parking Heater function allows the vehicle interior to be heated or cooled when the engine is switched off, while electric rear window blinds and a double sun-visor are also available with the Sunshine Specification. As far as safety is concerned, a plethora of standard driver assistance features are available such as including Park Assist, Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Assist, Night Vision and a Head-Up Display. Other striking elements include the exquisite optional Linley Hamper by Mulliner, complete with refrigerator, bespoke fine Linley china cutlery, crockery and crystal glass, and storage area for dry goods. A special mention goes to the bespoke mechanical Mulliner Tourbillon by Breitling clock.
