Bentley has recently unveiled a more sumptuous version of its Bentayga SUV, taking luxury to the next level.
Last year, Bentley introduced the elongated version of the Bentayga, and now the Mulliner version has been added, enhancing the luxury with details from Bentley’s Mulliner customization division to establish a new pinnacle in the SUV category.
Bentley Bentayga Synopsis
The Extended Wheelbase Bentayga possesses an extra 7.2 inches in its wheelbase, making it longer than the standard model’s 117.8 inches. The Mulliner version of the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is differentiated by its exclusive “Double Diamond” grille design and 22-inch wheels. These features, along with the exterior trim, can be customized with a bright finish or, if preferred, a gloss black finish under the Mulliner Blackline Specification. Unlike the regular Bentayga Extended Wheelbase, the Mulliner can only be chosen as a four-seater or a “4+1,” where a secondary middle seat is available for occasional use.
Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Mulliner’s Interior
Inside, the Mulliner offers Bentley Airline Seat rear seats, which include 22-way adjustability and an auto climate feature that begins heating or cooling as needed. A “Relax” mode allows the seat to recline up to 40 degrees, while the front passenger seat provides a footrest and moves forward. A unique posture-adjustment feature, designed to reduce pressure points, makes as many as 177 adjustments every three hours.
The interior is available in eight different three-color combinations, with leather upholstery tanned through an environmentally conscious process using waste water from olive oil processing. The leather is also obtained from the meat industry, thus utilizing materials that would otherwise be discarded.
Added aesthetics include standard Bentley Diamond Illumination, which embeds LEDs in the leather on the door panels, and a special Mulliner dashboard clock. Bentley also updated the digital display for the driver to harmonize with these features.
Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Mulliner’s Performance
As Bentley is discontinuing its W-12 engine, the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Mulliner relies on the manufacturer’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine. It delivers 542 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque, the same as the non-Mulliner models. This power is transmitted to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission, allowing the vehicle to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 180 mph. Standard features on the Mulliner models include the Bentley Dynamic Ride active suspension and rear-wheel steering.
The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Mulliner complements other Mulliner variants, including those of the Flying Spur sedan and the Continental GT coupe and convertible. In addition to these, Bentley had earlier released an Azure special edition of the long-wheelbase Bentayga.
