Bentley is set to present a new range topping Bentayga co-developed with its in house personal commissioning division Mulliner. Badged the Bentayga Mulliner, the new range-topper will be created in limited numbers. It also offers a host of new equipment and features which improve the luxury quotient of the car substantially over the standard version. On the outside, the Bentayga Mulliner features additional chrome inserts, Mulliner 22-inch Paragon alloy wheels and exclusive dual tone shade, with a choice of over 100 shades.
Inside, the cabin gets a unique color split with the rear and front seats finished in different upholstery shades with customers able to pick from a variety of mixtures. The seats come completed in dual-tone contrast colour stitching, and the Mulliner also gets exceptional wood veneer, with the inserts transitioning from black to Burr Walnut as it flows along the car’s cabin. Also included in the range-topping SUV are Mulliner door sill plates and LED lights designed to project the company logo. Furthermore, rear occupants get a bottle cooler combined into the rear center console along with two Cumbria Crystal flutes. Other equipment on offer includes a panoramic sun-roof, a Burr Walnut-finished veneered picnic table and mood lighting. Powering the Bentayga Mulliner is the same 608 BHP 6.0 liter W12 petrol engine as that on the standard Bentayga, with claimed equal performance figures of 0-100-kph in 4.0 sec and top speed of 301 KPH. The Bentayga Mulliner will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show 2017.
Bentley launched the standard Bentayga in India in April last year at a price of Rs.3.85 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). Since its India launch, Bentley has added a new diesel Bentayga to its international line-up with the Mulliner set to be its latest. It is yet to be seen if Bentley brings any of these new derivatives of the Bentayga to India.
