Bentley announced its participation in the Savile Row Concours, an esteemed annual event that showcases the epitome of bespoke tailoring, craftsmanship, and automotive excellence. The luxury automaker will unveil two limited editions from its prestigious Mulliner division. The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase and Continental GTC Huntsman Edition have been brought to life through a unique collaboration between Jack Barclay, Bentley’s oldest retailer, and the renowned Savile Row tailor, Huntsman.
The bespoke and handcrafted editions presented at the Savile Row Concours represent the pinnacle of luxury and exclusivity. Each car has been meticulously designed to embody the exquisite artistry and attention to detail that both Bentley and Huntsman are renowned for. In a truly unparalleled offering, every Huntsman Edition car will be accompanied by a specially crafted Huntsman jacket, tailored in one of Huntsman’s exclusive house cloths.
The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase and Continental GTC Huntsman Edition showcase exclusive interiors that draw inspiration from the esteemed Savile Row tailoring house’s sartorial heritage. Collaborating closely with Jack Barclay and the Mulliner team, Huntsman’s Head Cutter and Creative Director, Campbell Carey, artfully translated 174 years of bespoke craftsmanship into designs that harmoniously complement the cars’ interiors. These exceptional models feature bespoke Huntsman tailoring, creating a distinctive atmosphere. The Huntsman charcoal four-point star design adorns the upholstery throughout both vehicles, beautifully contrasting with honeycomb cross stitching. The iconic Huntsman logo and the signature ‘H’ motif are meticulously embroidered in the headrests, while the treadplates proudly display the Huntsman logo through embossing. Even the keybox has received a custom treatment, with tweed inlays and the stamped Huntsman logo.
Customers who opt for the Huntsman Edition will have the exclusive opportunity to visit Huntsman’s historic premises on Savile Row. During their visit, they will personally select their preferred cloth and undergo a meticulous measuring session, ensuring that their jacket is tailored precisely to their unique specifications. The two Huntsman Edition examples are part of a limited collection, with only five of each model being produced. Staying true to the essence of bespoke craftsmanship, every edition will be individually styled and designed according to the customer’s specific requirements. Customers will have the opportunity to exert their influence on numerous aspects of the Huntsman editions, resulting in a truly personalized and bespoke experience. To embark on the journey of curating their very own Huntsman edition, potential customers can get in touch with the dedicated team at Jack Barclay.
