Uber-luxe SUV gets even more uber-luxe

The Bentley Bentayga Mulliner has been revealed ahead of the 2017 Geneva motor show, giving the ultra-luxurious SUV that little extra panache.

Created in collaboration with and named after the company's coachbuilding division, Mulliner, the Bentayga Mulliner features numerous exclusive features and finishes, helping the polarising land yacht to stand out even more from its 'lesser' brethren (if that was even possible).

The Bentayga Mulliner features bespoke elements like a new Mulliner rear bottle cooler, special 22-inch 'Paragon' seven-spoke alloy wheels with floating wheel centres, a new veneer gradient 'concept', and a unique Mulliner interior colour scheme with contrasting embroidery.

Other highlights include optional duo-tone exterior paintwork (a first for the Bentayga), unique exterior badging, standard body-coloured lower bodywork, bright chrome lower bumper grilles, bespoke crystal flutes to complement the rear bottle cooler, Mulliner tread plates and customisable LED ambient lighting.

A 20-speaker 1950W sound system is also offered, with a 21-channel amplifier, along with the standard driver assistance suite including park assist, lane assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic assist, night vision and a head-up display.

Customers willing to spend more cash can indulge on numerous options, including the Linley Hamper by Mulliner which includes a refrigerator, bespoke fine Linley china cutlery, crockery, crystal glass, along with a storage area for dry goods.

Like the 'regular' Bentayga, the Mulliner can also be optioned with the Mulliner Tourbillon by Breitling central clock - which is priced at just over $300,000.

Under the bonnet is Bentley's stonking 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 petrol engine, developing 447kW of power and 900Nm of torque, sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Bentayga Mulliner maintains its 0-100km/h sprint time of 4.1 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 301km/h - the highest top speed of any SUV in the world.

A special one-off version of the Bentayga Mulliner will be on display at the Geneva motor show next week.
