One-off Bentley Bentayga Hybrid goes all the way green
It may not be easy being green, but it sure looks good. Bentley's bespoke division, Bentley Mulliner, has created a one-off Bentayga Hybrid for a well-off customer from China. The entire vehicle's color scheme was inspired by the color green, the Chinese color of purity, regeneration, harmony, and growth. The shades of green chosen by the customer were inspired by the British countryside in the Lake District.
The exterior of the Bentayga Hybrid is finished in Viridian, a dark emerald hue from the Mulliner Extended paint range that has flecks of amber and gold in its formula. There are light green and blue undertones that are designed to give the paint a sense of depth.
It wears bright-machined 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification Wheels, each of which has the centre pockets of every spoke painted in matching Viridian.
The bespoke interior includes Cumbrian Green hide, matching piano veneer, and contrasting stitching highlighting the hand craftsmanship throughout the cabin. The shade Cumbrian Green is a modernization and refreshment of the Spruce Green interior fo the past.
A bespoke passenger fascia includes a silver metal overlay with a geometric diamond design that is reminiscent of the EXP 100 GT concept car.
White accents abound in the model. There is contrast carpet binding and contrasting hand stitching on the seats. Over 100 meters of bright white cross-stitched thread features on the interior of the doors, seat backs, and in the piano Cumbrian Green veneer via a unique overlay. The process of hand cross-stitching a Bentayga cabin takes one craftsperson 44 hours to complete.
Luxury features include an illuminated Mulliner treadplate, fully-integrated drinks cooler with frosted glass and soft close door, and bespoke Cumbria Crystal flutes.
Bentley just launched the Bentayga Hybrid, part of the company's longer term Beyond100 strategy that focused on zero emissions and hybrid powertrains.
Bentley is shipping the car off to be displayed at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month.
