One-Of-A-Kind Bentley Celebrates Equestrian Skill In Exhilarating Style

Untitled

This one-of-a-kind Continental GT Convertible builds on the strengths of Bentley’s iconic open top Grand Tourer. Inspired by the most exhilarating event on the horse racing calendar, The Cheltenham Festival, the only example of the Equestrian Edition has been specially commissioned by Bentley Bristol and hand-built by Bentley Mulliner in Crewe. To celebrate the car’s inspiration, it was recently photographed at Jackdaws Castle – the famous state of the art equestrian training facility and home of Jonjo O’Neill Racing.

Meticulous embroidery and marquetry places the Equestrian Edition in a class all its own. Horse and rider silhouettes embellish all four seats, which are themselves finished in the aptly named sustainable Saddle hide. A Cumbrian Green secondary hide complements the bespoke theme. The same horse and rider silhouette accompanies Bentley Mulliner branding in the front fascia, where opulent gold detailing accentuates the straight grain Walnut single veneer and box wood inlays.

The notable details:

  • Equestrian Edition becomes first member of new Bentley Mulliner Collections portfolio
  • Unique Horse and Rider silhouette emblems adorn seat headrests and front fascia
  • Distinctive diamond quilted tweed fabric complements a Burr Walnut single finish veneer
  • Specially commissioned Spruce exterior paint finish
  • Gloss black 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels with Continental Blackline specification
