Bentley Mulliner - Bentley's in-house tuners - created the world's first line of vehicles to pay tribute to Russian ballet, one of the most graceful and expressive forms of human craftsmanship. This six-vehicle collection, handcrafted in Crewe, is based on the Bentayga Speed, the flagship of the range, and is equipped with W12 engines. This opens the first chapter of the “Russian Heritage” special models, an annually continued project in which exclusive themed versions are created especially for Russian customers. The focus of the tailor-made equipment is on familiar ballet figures, with each vehicle focusing on a different movement. Details handcrafted with incomparable precision from the finest materials celebrate the spectacular beauty of ballet.
Mulliner Bentley Bentayga Speed
Each of the six vehicles is designed in a different paint scheme from the extensive Bentley color palette, including three vehicles in two-tone paintwork. The interiors are based on four different specifications, which are made up of a tailor-made color combination, unique contrasting stitching, individual ballet embroidery in silver and modern ballet inlay on the passenger side of the dashboard.
- Windsor Blue via Light Windsor Blue - Leather in Twine and Imperial Blue combined with Liquid Amber veneer
- Silver Storm over Damson - Autumn and Damson leather combined with Koa veneer
- Moonbeam over Moroccan Blue - Leather in Twine and Imperial Blue combined with Liquid Amber veneer
- Damson - Autumn and Damson leather combined with Koa veneer
- Spectre - Leather in cashew and burnt oak combined with dark fiddleback eucalyptus veneer
- Magnolia - Shortbread and cricket ball leather combined with Grand Black veneer
The Mulliner team has integrated the silhouettes of a ballet dancer into the luxurious interiors of the Bentayga Speeds, which are inlaid into the front dashboard. This noble work is rounded off by unique embroidery on each seat. All vehicles in the collection are named after a unique ballet movement that is named on the door sill and repeated throughout the interior.
Christian Schlick, Head of Bentley Russia, says: "We are very pleased to introduce the exclusive Bentayga Speed Russian Heritage Collection to our Russian customers. This project is based on the passion for perfection that Bentley shares with ballet, that impressive and sophisticated art that serves as the central motif of this year's limited edition. These six unique SUVs will be delivered by Bentley Moscow and Bentley Moscow-Volgogradskiy at the end of the year, as all vehicles have already been taken."
Cultural heritage reflected in modern luxury
The regional collection shows an imposing exterior look. Dark-tinted headlights, side skirts in body color, unique front and rear bumpers and a fascinating, elongated rear wing underpin the capabilities of the Bentayga Speed. Dark-tinted grills on the radiator and bumpers, an exclusive 22-inch wheel design and unique Russian Heritage LED welcome lighting represent the aesthetics and power of the Bentayga.
The color combination of the Speed is underlined by the use of dark accents on the seats and interior trim. Elegantly manufactured, sweeping leather elements in a contrasting color flow around the doors and door handles, framing the seat surfaces and backrests as well as the lower console. The regional custom-made product sets standards in the automotive world in terms of seating comfort and rounds this off with high-quality leather and accents in detailed, contrasting stitching.
Dynamic and powerful
With the double turbo-charged 6,0-liter W12 engine, which offers 635 hp at its peak, the Bentayga Speed takes the exceptional performance characteristics of the Bentayga to a new level. The torque of 900 Nm, which is continuously available between 1.500 rpm and 5.000 rpm, guarantees steady, effortless acceleration. Dynamics, comfort and handling at an exceptional level: the top speed has been increased to 306 km / h, while 100 km / h can be reached in just 3,9 seconds from a standstill.
Bentley Dynamic Ride is the world's first active electric roll stabilization with a unique 48-volt system. This system directly counteracts the side lean forces when cornering. This ensures maximum tire contact with the road and ensures vehicle stability, a high level of driving comfort and exceptional handling that are unparalleled in this class. The recalibration of Bentley's Torque Vectoring by Brake system - in which the inner rear wheel is braked slightly when entering a curve in order to increase the steering of the front axle - gives the Bentayga Speed even more direct handling.
Mulliners Bespoke Collections
This unique collection of regional special models was created using the know-how and content of the Mulliner Personal Commissioning Guide. The Mulliner design is an integral part of Mulliner's portfolio strategy. The team works across all three areas of the Bentley custom-made and customization department - from Classic to Coachbuilt to Collections.
