Bentley’s in-house personal commissioning division, Mulliner, has created a new flagship model, the Bentley Mulliner, that is, the company says, the ‘ultimate luxury SUV’.
To be produced in limited numbers, the new model will be available to order soon and will feature new interior and exterior features – including optional Duo Tone paintwork, unique 22” Paragon seven-spoke wheels with floating wheel centres, Mulliner Bottle Cooler in the rear of the cabin featuring an illuminated chilling cabinet and bespoke Cumbria Crystal flutes, and a new Ombré Burr Walnut Veneer throughout the interior.
Inside, mood lighting, comprising six different ‘moods’, together with illuminated Mulliner tread plates and Bentley LED Welcome Lamps, create a luxurious night-time ambience. Bentayga Mulliner also offers owners the chance to create their own bespoke ambience, with ‘My Mood’, which allows occupants to choose from 15 different colours, while also adjusting the brightness in doors, armrests and footwells.
The Bentley Mulliner also feature the Naim for Bentley Audio system – the most powerful, highest quality audio system in the class, featuring twenty speakers driven by a 1,950-watt, 21-channel amplifier.
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.
The Touring and City Specifications enhance the comprehensive suite of standard driver assistance features, including Park Assist, Lane Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Assist, Night Vision and a Head-Up Display.
The Bentayga Mulliner also benefits from Bentley Dynamic Ride – electric active roll control technology. This system instantly counteracts lateral rolling forces when cornering and ensures maximum tyre contact to deliver class-leading cabin stability, ride comfort and exceptional handling.
The flagship Bentayga is also available with the optional Linley Hamper by Mulliner, complete with refrigerator, bespoke fine Linley china cutlery, crockery and crystal glass, and storage area for dry goods. For comfort in the great outdoors, sections can be removed and used as seats.
Another option is the bespoke mechanical Mulliner Tourbillon by Breitling clock. The Mulliner Tourbillon features 196 individual pieces and is automatically wound periodically by a dedicated high-precision winding mechanism within the car. The clock is machined in solid gold (customers can select from yellow, white or rose gold), with a choice of either a mother-of-pearl or black ebony face and decorated with eight diamond indexes.
The Bentayga Mulliner is powered by a 600bhp, 6.0-litre, W12 engine that delivers a 0-100km/h time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 301 km/h.
