Bentley Mulliner raises the bar for luxury appointment with industry-leading craftsmanship and customization. This summer, Bentley is set to launch the Mulliner line for the 3rd-gen Continental GT Convertible, which came to the market just over two years ago, in St Tropez.
Double Diamond Design
The Bentley Mulliner Convertible features a bold new Double Diamond front grille, which is further complemented by bespoke Mulliner-branded side vents that continue the unique silver-on-black diamond theme.
This Double Diamond design is an extension to Bentley’s exclusive Diamond-in-Diamond interior quilting design concept, which adorns all four seats, the door casings, rear quarters and now for the first time furnishes the tonneau cover.
The Diamond-in-Diamond interior quilting features contrast stitching in two complementary colors to accentuate the thread against the quilting. It takes almost 400,000 stitches to deliver this quilting across the cabin of the car, with each diamond containing exactly 712 individual stitches.
Extensive Veneer Options
A new extensive range of 88 different piano-finished wood veneers is available through Bentley Mulliner Personal Commissioning. With this program, colored veneer finish can be matched to the interior or exterior of the car.
Burr walnut veneer is hand sanded and polished to produce a perfectly smooth finish before painting to match the color of the customer’s choice. Once dry, the veneer is polished to achieve a mirror-like finish.
Eye-catching chrome details are overlaid into the piano veneer, including a Convertible silhouette in the passenger fascia and a B-motif in the door waistrails.
Metal Details & Dashboard
An exquisite, tactile Diamond Milled Technical finish has been applied to the center console, through Bentley's first use of a multi-machined panel process.
The center console houses a new and exclusive Breitling for Mulliner clock with a new brushed metallic face and bejewelled hour marks. The clock bezel and air vent surrounds are finished in chrome to complete the stunning interior jewellery.
The ornate and luxurious design of the Breitling for Mulliner clock face is also applied to the Driver Display Kombi, with the precision-rendered gauges of the LED-display driver’s instrument panel using the same brushed finished and Mulliner branding.
The Continental GT Mulliner Convertible will be available with both V8 and W12 engine options. It also sports exclusive, all-new 22-inch 10-spoke painted & polished wheels with floating, self-levelling wheel badges that remain upright as the wheel rotates.
Update 16 September 2020
The new GT Mulliner has debuted on 15 September. From 22 September, it will be displayed together with the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar. The Continental GT Mulliner will be available to order in October, with deliveries expected to commence early next year.
