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.

To accent the tweed, Mulliner has used a light blue contrast stitch to the door and seat quilting. The veneer species is Burr Walnut finished with a straight grained ‘picture frame’ cross-banding technique, which echoes some of the magnificent antique furniture in The Jockey Club’s private rooms.

The passenger veneer panel is finished with a gold horse graphic to add jewellery-like detail, and each seat features an intricately embroidered horse and jockey emblem created with a Saddle and Cognac thread for added tactile detail.
