Bentley’s 1,000th Mulliner project is a very purple Bentayga

By topgear, 13 July 2021

Bentley set up its dedicated Mulliner Design team seven years ago now, and it has just completed its 1,000th commission.

And lucky number 1,000 is a very purple Bentayga with a bespoke interior. Apparently the project was for a European customer that wanted Olive Ash veneer from the Mulsanne (and lots of it) on the dashboard, doors and centre consoles, as well as a contrasting purple twin stitch on the seats and the door cards. Not bad, all things considered… 

The Flying Spur you see above was the first of Mulliner Design’s modern-day creations, with 15 examples of the so-called Serenity edition built in 2014. So, where next for Bentley’s bespoke and personalised vehicles department?
