Bentley’s in-house bespoke creators from Mulliner have made the world’s most exclusive SUV even more exclusive and we went to have a look at the Geneva Motor Show 2017. The show car in Geneva is a special one-off edition, while the Bentayga Mulliner will be made available in a yet unknown limited number.
The Bentley Bentayga Mulliner can be ordered with the optional duo-tone paintwork and unique all-new 22-inch Paragon wheels with floating wheel centers. Exclusive highlights of the interior are the illuminated ‘Mulliner’ logos in the SUV’s door sills and the LED welcome lighting which projects the Bentley logo onto the ground upon opening the car’s doors.
Given the luxury aspect, the Mulliner Bentayga uses the four-seat luxury configuration as base. Rear seat passengers that get to enjoy their 18-way configurable seat with embedded air-conditioning and massaging functions, can now do so while taking in the luxurious handcrafted interior features designed by Mulliner. These comprise a mix of Ombré Burr Walnut veneer and piano black finishes, two soft Alcantara cushions for extended comfort, and custom Mulliner embroidery in the seat headrests.
While you are being chauffeured to your next destination in style, why not enjoy a glass of champagne directly from the custom Mulliner bottle cooler? To enhance the ambiance, the cooling compartment is backlit using LED lights and it will be comforting to know you will be sipping champagne from two handcrafted Cumbria Crystal champagne flutes.
Mulliner traditionally sticks to raising the level of luxury in their creations, so the engine of the Bentayga Mulliner remains the same. The powerful and comfortable W12 engine takes care of business like no other SUV currently on the road. With an output of 608 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque a top speed of 301 km/h can be reached, effectively making it the world’s fastest production SUV on the market today. A 0-100 km/h sprint takes the massive Bentayga only 4 seconds.
A price and exact availability have not been released so far, but potential buyers are free to request information on Bentley’s website. Given the already hefty price tag of the standard W12 Bentley Bentayga, expect to spend at least $250,000 depending on your personalization preferences.
