Bentley Bentayga Mulliner takes the luxury SUV experience to next level

Bentley Bentayga Mulliner takes the luxury SUV experience to next level

The 2017 Bentley Bentayga Mulliner is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show and it is touted as the "Ultimate Luxury SUV" by the automaker. Mulliner now is the personal commissioning department for Bentley and is known as Bentley Mulliner, churning out exquisitely crafted luxury cars for the British marque.

Like other Bentley Mulliner models, the powertrain remains untouched with the model continuing to offer 600 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque from a 6.0-liter W12 engine. Those latter folks, particularly, may be interested in the 2018 Bentayga Mulliner, which brings a raft of Bentley bespoke specialness that will send the sticker price even higher.

On its exterior, the Bentayga Mulliner includes 22-inch Paragon seven-spoke wheels with floating wheel centres, body-coloured lower bodywork and bright chromed lower bumper grilles. The exterior of the Mulliner is said to stand out with its two-tone paint job.

The bigger differences are found in the cabin, where Mulliner has combined modern and traditional coachbuilding design. The interior color split has the front and rear seats finished in different hide colors, while the hand-stitched hides are finished with unique Mulliner embroidery and contrast stitching.

Snap Prices Shares at $17 for Thursday's IPO
For now, Snap is expected to set a $14 to $16 price per share, which would translate to a massive $22.2 billion valuation. Moreover, 26-year-old Spiegel will continue to hold a stake of about 17 percent in the company, valued at $4.05 billion.

Inside, the auto will boast a new Ombré Burr Walnut veneer, that transitions in color from black to walnut brown and which will be used for the first time to dress the fascia as well as door panels.

Bespoke features include a new Mulliner Bottle Cooler in the rear of the cabin, Cumbria Crystal flutes and rear centre console. Capping off the fancy-pants interior is a configurable mood lighting system featuring 15 different colors.

One of the headline optional extras is the Mulliner Tourbillon by Breitling clock. Comprising 196 individual pieces, the Mulliner Tourbillion is periodically wound automatically by a high-precision winding mechanism within the vehicle. Mulliner Tourbillon features 196 individual pieces and it is available only in gold with a choice of either mother-of-pearl or black ebony face and decorated with eight diamond indexes. No word on how much the Mulliner Bentayga will cost, but considering the clock is $154,000, the vehicle will likely be quite a lot.
