Bentley has released yet another limited-run version of its Bentayga SUV in collaboration with its bespoke coachbuilding division, Mulliner.
Dubbed the Bentayga Pearl of the Gulf, the super-exclusive edition is limited to just five units globally, and comes equipped with an array of real pearl surfaces and trims to celebrate the rich pearl diving heritage of the Arabian Gulf.
Headlining the specification sheet is a Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus fascia that dominates the dashboard, featuring a pearl diving dhow boat scene etched into it, with Mother of Pearl inlays.
There's also Linen main hide accented by Brunel secondary hide upholstery, along with a special Mother of Pearl Breitling clock sitting proudly in the centre of the dashboard – the 'standard' Breitling watch is usually a £150,000 option ($277,049.17).
The quilted leather seats are finished in Camel with Brunel stitching, also continuing to the door inserts. Gold thread embroidery "highlights this Bentayga's pearl diving credentials", while Lambswool rugs and illuminated Mulliner treadplates add to the plush ambience.
Behind the second row of seats, there's a die-cast aluminium high-pressure storage unit that offers fingerprint sensor technology, which can be used to store valuables while the owner is "at the beach or utilising valet parking services".
The Pearl of the Gulf Bentayga is exclusively powered by the flagship 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine, which makes a healthy 447kW and 900Nm.
CarAdvice has reached out to Bentley's local division to see if any Bentayga Pearl of the Gulfs have been secured by Australian customers, and how much one would cost. Stay tuned for an update.
