Bentley is more than a century old, but its presence in China is much younger. The luxury carmaker is celebrating 20 years in the Asian country, and it’s doing so by launching four limited edition Mulliner models. Bentley will produce a total of 80 – 20 each, with Mulliner creating unique specifications for each model based on the famous London location.
The four cars are Continental GT, Continental GTC, Bentayga, and Flying Spur. Each car-specific configuration – The Guard, The Carnaby, The Savile Row, and The Pall Mall – features unique designs, embroidery, and other Mulliner features. Mulliner will make every car.
The Guard took inspiration from the British Royal Guards, with the two-tone Continental GT representing their iconic gown. The black roof represents the Guard’s famous 18-inch black bearskin hat. Bentley also uses black on the 10-spoke wheels measuring 21 inches. A special badge notes the car’s unique status and limited production. Inside, Bentley divides the cabin with a three-tone color palette, contrast stitching and other Mulliner touches.
Bentley will also launch a Continental GT Convertible called the Carnaby. This drop-top, based on Carnaby Street in London’s Soho district, is available in four colors – Radium, Jetstream II, Orange Flame and Onyx. Bentley paired it with 22-inch alloy wheels painted black with white accents. The cabin receives Radium accents and matching contrast stitching.
The Bentayga, called The Savile Row, combines Cumbrian Green with 22-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels of the same color. Inside, this four-seater SUV receives Mulliner “Serenity” seats in the seats and doors with a suit and bow tie embroidered into the headrests to bring out Savile Row’s great tailors.
The final build of the Mulliner refreshed the Bentley Flying Spur to Pall Mall. The building pays homage to the Queen’s State Limousine, which Bentley delivered to him in 2002, the same year Bentley began sales in China. The Flying Spur features a two-tone Beluga over Claret paint scheme with matching 22-inch alloy wheels. Inside, Pall Mall features a unique front-to-back color split.
The first examples of this unique Bentley will soon be arriving in China, with the rest of the cars being sold exclusively in the country in the coming months.
