And Continental GTC drop-top also shown with bespoke interior inspired by famous Savile Row tailor
The 2023 Bentley Bentayga EWB Huntsman Edition and an equivalent special-edition for the Bentley Continental GTC Speed have premiered at a Savile Row Concours event in London.
Bentley’s Mulliner division has joined forces with the 174-year-old British tailor, H Huntsman & Sons, to produce the cars, which will be limited to just five examples of each.
As part of the collaboration, the special SUV and drop-top will also come with a jacket tailormade for the owner using one of Huntsman’s exclusive house cloths.
Of course, the main attraction is the interior fit-out, with the Bentayga and Continental GTC Speed Huntsman special-editions featuring the tailor’s trademark charcoal four-point star cloth with honeycomb cross-stitching.
The tailor’s logo also appears on the head restraints and treadplates.
Elsewhere, there’s tweed blended with leather, plus yet more tweed used as accents on the gear lever, door pockets, stowage areas and grab handles.
Finally, there’s piano black veneers, further Huntsman embroidery and tweed piping.
Based on the Bentley Bentayga EWB Azure, all five Huntsman SUVs come painted in a metallic Burgundy and ride on huge 22-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels.
There’s also new Huntsman badging on the rear pillar.
As standard, the luxurious SUV comes with the optional Airline Seat pack, with a pair of rear armchairs that feature 22-way adjustment.
The Continental GTC Speed Huntsman cars are all painted light grey satin, with dark chrome finishing.
Again, the limited-edition rides on 22-inch 10-spoke rims that are finished in gloss black. Black Huntsman badges appear on the front fenders.
Inside, there’s Beluga and Porpoise leather that’s blended with Huntsman tweed and an unusual Galaxy Stone veneer that looks like granite stone.
If the customer wants a say in how their special Bentley looks, the British car-maker says it’s possible to further influence the specification of their car as each vehicle will be bespoke.
Both cars also come with a special key box that is inlaid with tweed and stamped with the Huntsman branding.
It’s not the first time Bentley has teamed up with Huntsman; back in 2019 they created a special Bentayga that featured a cabin upholstered in the tailor’s famed tweed cloth.
