Bentley Continental GT received a version for equestrian enthusiastsMarch 7, 2020
The custom-made luxurious and rampant Bentley Continental GT convertible received horse and rider embroidery.
A few years ago, the Bentley showed the custom-made Mentiner bodybuilding and personalization team a Bentayga crossover inspired by equestrianism. The new Continental GT cabriolet follows the same path and adds a similar version to the hand-built Bentley Continental GT at its headquarters in Crewe, which, like the early Bentayga introduced, become a haven for horse lovers filled with subtle elements related to equestrian sports.
Mulliner specially gave this GT convertible an elegant look so that the interior could sparkle with all the colors. The magnificent green spruce theme is barely interrupted by black 22-inch wheels, a radiator grille, front panels and exhaust openings.
The coniferous theme continues inside the Mulliner Continental green leather blending with elements of a grayish color, wood bark trim and chrome accents to maintain an upscale classic atmosphere. The head restraints on all four seats are embroidered with horses and riders embroidered with the corresponding emblem on the dashboard, and the door cards are decorated with a unique tweed fabric, which can be found on the riding jacket. If you look closely, you will notice gold details and a blue line throughout the cabin. A head-up display, a trunk lid with a speakerphone function and assistance in maintaining a lane are all amenities that you will not find, say, in a horse.
Bentley offers two different engines for the Continental GT Convertible, both “with lots of horses in their stables.” The 6.0-liter Twin-Turbo W12 engine develops 626 horsepower, while the entry-level V8 delivers 542 hp. Equestrian Edition, the so-called special version, is equipped with a large engine, because “who does not need the fastest horse?”
The Continental GT Equestrian Edition is inspired by the Cheltenham Racecourse in England and photographed at the nearest equestrian training center at Jackdaws Castle. This version is much more restrained than the yellow Bacalar without a roof, which debuted earlier this week. In contrast, the $ 1.9 million car with a limited edition of 12 pieces, the Equestrian Edition will be literally one of a kind.
