Bentley’s Mulliner division has let its latest creation out of the stable, and by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival is as ornate as its name is long. For those of us less attuned to the world of equestrian sports, The Festival is a four-day horse-racing event in the United Kingdom staged by the Jockey Club.
As its name implies, the Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival is, well, inspired by The Festival. Painted in a green shade called Spruce, the large luxury SUV features contrasting black trim and rides on massive silver and black-painted 21-inch wheels.
The real magic can be found within the British crossover’s cabin, though, where Mulliner has lined the dashboard, doors, and seats in either Cumbrian Green or Saddle Brown leather—appropriately equestrian color choices. Finishing things off are niceties such as burr walnut wood, which Bentley said is inspired by the furniture located in the Jockey Club’s private rooms; horse and jockey emblems embroidered into the seatbacks; and a gold horse emblem on the passenger side of the dashboard.
The right-hand-drive Bentley Bentayga by Mulliner, Inspired by The Festival will be on display from March 13-16 at The Festival, which takes place in Cheltenham, about 100 miles east of London.
