Bentley celebrates its continuing partnership with The Jockey Club at the Cheltenham Festival this month (13-16 March), with a one-off commission of its luxury SUV – the Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival. The Festival epitomises and encompasses everything that is great about Jump racing, whilst delivering an unbelievable occasion as the finest horses, jockeys, owners and trainers battle it out for the highest racing honors.
Inspired by the Jockey Club’s rich history, its Royal connections and fine art pieces, Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival celebrates the two brands’ partnership, based on British luxury and racing heritage. The vehicle draws 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 refined with the Blackline Specification and 21” diamond-turned and black painted wheels. A bespoke tweed inside harmonizes with Cumbrian Green and Saddle leather hues, and a unique color split refers to the car’s performance potential while keeping a sophisticated look.
Mulliner has used a light blue contrast stitch to the door and seat quilting to highlight the tweed. The veneer species is Burr Walnut finished with a straight grained ‘picture frame’ cross-banding technique, is inspired by 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.
