Bentley Limited Edition Bentayga SUVs Trimmed by Savile Row Tailor

By Paul Joseph

British luxury car marquee Bentley has teamed up with renowned Savile Row tailor, Huntsman, and Jack Barclay – the world’s largest and oldest Bentley dealership – to create two special edition Bentayga SUVs.

The exclusive Bentayga project was conceived to celebrate the centenaries of both Bentley and Huntsman, the latter having established its prestigious Savile Row boutique in 1919.

The two special editions Bentaygas – named ‘Sportsman’ and ‘Businessman’ – each utilise Huntsman fabrics with Bentley’s emblematic colour and trim.

The cabin of both cars features distinctive interior patterns based on Huntsman tweeds, including ‘Peck 62’ – a pattern exclusively used for Huntsman’s centenary in 1962.

“Bentley is delighted to bring together two brands which have such an impeccable heritage in the heart of London – Jack Barclay and Huntsman,” says Stefan Sielaff, director of design and Mulliner, Bentley Motors.

“The personalisation work we do at Mulliner is about bringing a vision to life – like creating a perfectly tailored suit – so adding an element of bespoke Huntsman material to the Bentayga’s lavish and beautiful interior is a perfect fit.”

The Businessman variant comes with a deep black and satin anthracite paint job on the outside, while the urban-themed cabin design features carbon fibre trim that is contrasted with tweed trimmings in the door cards.

The highlight of the model, however, is the bespoke Mulliner chessboard in the rear seat rest, complete with a drawer trimmed in Huntsman fabric which houses the chess pieces, mirroring the memorable chequerboard floor in the Jack Barclay Bentley showroom in London.

The Sportsman model is inspired by more relaxed countryside lifestyle and features more pronounced use of the tweed on passenger and driver fascias and waistrails, and includes Imperial Blue leather and Liquid Amber veneer inserts, paired with a Candy Red exterior.

Both models will also come with a Huntsman bespoke jacket that will be delivered with the car, with owners able to select from a variety of cloths and tweeds for their garment.

Pricing for the two special editions has not yet been announced.
