The Bentley Equestrian Collection is a unique line of luxury SUVs that was designed with Belgian equestrians in mind. The collection features bespoke interior details and exterior elements that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of equestrian enthusiasts.
The British marque has always been known for its luxurious vehicles, and the new Equestrian Collection is no exception. Bentley has you covered if you’re looking for a vehicle that’s perfect for weekend getaways or long drives through the country. So if you’re in the market for a super-luxurious SUV, be sure to check out the Bentley Equestrian Collection. You won’t be disappointed.
Aside from the rather lengthy name, the Mulliner division of Bentley has added a few distinctive features to the already opulent Bentayga. To begin, the Spectre-inspired Equestrian Collection gets an exotic brown paint job.
The 2022 Equestrian Edition is restricted to only ten vehicles worldwide, with a carbon-fiber styling kit and sport exhaust as standard equipment. According to Bentley, the Belgian Equestrian Collection draws connections between the Bentley world and shows jumping in Belgium’s history.
The 10-spoke 22-inch black wheels and black highlights around the headlights/taillights and front grille complement the one-of-a-kind paint job. Two neatly embroidered horse heads—the Stephex Masters’ logo—are also on the seats, tying it in with the equestrian theme of this unique series Bentley.
The Bentayga’s luxurious features continue inside with embroidered Mandarin Orange upholstery and diamond-shaped tailor works on the doors and seats. The stitching on the steering wheel and center console are hand-crafted in the same color as the gear lever, adding a touch of sportiness to the cabin.
According to Bentley, many of their customers are involved in the equestrian world and have a strong passion for show jumping. These 10 Mulliner-spec Bentaygas offer a special level of exclusivity to clients in Belgium.
Powering the new special edition Bentayga is the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, without any modifications. The engine produces 542 hp (405 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque between 2,000 and 4,500 rpm on 95-octane fuel. Hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission made by ZF and all-wheel drive, it allows the luxury SUV to hit 60 mph in 4.4 seconds from a standstill and 180 mph flat-out.
Bentley claims the Bentayga is the first-ever go-anywhere luxury SUV, offering the ultimate in power, luxury, and usability. However, I highly doubt it will be used for off-roading purposes.
