Bentley’s Mulliner division continues the trend of special editions designed for selected customers from different parts of the world. The latest example is the Equestrian Collection, with a limited number of ten units of the Bentayga reserved for Belgium.
As suggested by its name, the new series was commissioned to celebrate the equestrian world in Belgium. Thus the theme is inspired by horses and the art of show jumping. The special Bentayga is painted in a unique Spectre exterior shade, combined with a set of black ten-spoke 22-inch wheels, carbon fiber accents, and a special badge on the C-pillar. The latter is the symbol of Stephex Masters, with orange graphics depicting the heads of two horses.
The same emblem can be found on the seatbacks and the cushions inside the cabin. Mulliner chose a Burnt Oak color for the fine leather upholstery, with contrasting Mandarin stitching. Besides the seats, the diamond-shaped pattern can be found on the door inserts, coming in Herringbone Sand Tweed that was produced in Scotland.
Another unique touch is the “Belgian Equestrian Collection” lettering on the dashboard veneer featuring a metal overlay. Of course, each of the ten units can be further personalized by the respectful owners in collaboration with Mulliner, prioritizing the use of sustainable materials.
All examples of the Belgian Equestrian Collection will be based on the Bentayga V8. This means they are fitted with the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine producing 542 hp (404 kW / 550 PS) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Those who are interested in acquiring one of the ten units of the Bentley Bentayga Equestrian Collection should visit the dealerships in Antwerp, Brussels, and Knokke. The SUV will be showcased during the Brussels Stephex Masters show jumping competition, held between August 24-28.
