Bentley's Mulliner SUV features hand-stitched leather

Posted March 04, 2017

Today, Bentley unveiled the new Bentayga Mulliner, which they have coined as "the ultimate luxury SUV". Using the most complex set of watch mechanisms, the Mulliner Tourbillon features 196 individual pieces and, according to Bentley, "is automatically wound periodically by a dedicated high-precision winding mechanism within the auto".

There are now new, exclusive features which on the outside include a two-tone paintwork and unique 22in alloy wheels with floating wheel centers, exclusive badging, body-colored lower bodywork and bright chromed lower bumper grilles.

Power comes from the 6.0-litre W12 engine which makes 600hp (608PS) and 663lb-ft (900Nm) of peak torque, enabling the new Bentley Bentayga Mulliner to accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 4.0 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.1s) before reaching a top speed of 187mph (301km/h).

According to The NPD Group, consumer electronics revenue decreased 2.8 percent in the quarter ended January 28. Domestic online comparable sales increased 17.5%, due to increased traffic and higher conversion rates.

What's more the launch edition, will be the first and only model to feature images of the Monte Rosa mountain range in marquetry form inlaid within the veneer. Mulliner bottle cooler in the rear of the cabin features an illuminated chilling cabinet and bespoke Cumbria Crystal flutes. Ombré Burr Walnut Veneer trim is added exclusively to the vehicle, alongside a new veneered panel replacing the standard centre console fascia. The upholstery is stitched by hand and is finished with unique embroidery and contrast stitching.

Bentley will produce the Bentayga Mulliner in very limited numbers and will be available to order in Spring 2017.

A 20-speaker 1950W sound system is also offered, with a 21-channel amplifier, along with the standard driver assistance suite including park assist, lane assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic assist, night vision and a head-up display. There's also some special options include the Linley Hamper by Mulliner, featuring Linely china and silverware and a refrigerator. Machined from solid white, yellow or rose gold, customers can choose either a mother-of-pearl or black ebony clockface, decorated with eight diamonds.
